It’s 2 minutes past midnight, and everyone has already been asleep for a while. Except me.

I had a productive day. Say down to work after breakfast, and except for a late lunch, and to pick up lil R from the station, didn’t move till dinner.

Gorda and Chewie had a good day though. They went for what looked like a happy walk in the sunshine. He got to play with his neighbourhood friend, Soham, in the evening. She got to do stuff she likes to do -clean and arrange stuff, and then chat with lil R.

I was in front of a monitor almost all this time.

Now all three are deep asleep, while I plot tomorrow’s actions. Tail runner at the Guildford parkrun in the morning. Hopefully, some Eggs Benedict for breakfast later, then a few hours of work, and maybe another run in the evening.

Given that Gorda let me work in peace all day today, it seems quite likely that I’ll get none of the above tomorrow, other than the park run. Wouldn’t be a bad day either way ☺


P.S.: just about a week remaining to Brighton Marathon, for which I’m woefully under prepared. Trying to drown myself in work, love, fights and TV to keep my mind off it 😦

Listening to a playlist of about 20 songs…

Listening to a playlist of about 20 songs while working. The only time I get stuck is when these few lines come up once every while.

Ma ne khat me kya likha tha
  Jee tu jug jug ye likha tha
Chaar pal bhi jee naa paaya tu

Yaaron se nazrein mila le
  Ek baar tu muskura de
Uth jaa saale yun satata hai kyun

Dunno if it’s me missing Ma, missing friends back home, missing home, or just the actual words used. Need to delete the song from playlist if I wish to continue working without getting any more senti… :(

A literal translation of the lyrics for my non-Hindi speaking readers:

What did Mom say in her letter?
  Have a long life, she said
But you didn’t even live for 4 moments.

Look into friends’ eyes
  Smile once
Get up bastard, why do you bugger us so..

Context: One of 3 close friends living in a hostel is seriously ill and the other two are praying/singing for him to recover.

Song: Jaane nahin denge from the movie 3 idiots
