What a lovely change of days off this week!
Just got back from Agonda where I had a great 24 hours – an overnight stay with a friend from the UK after a lovely day spent visiting Chaudi market and the Blue Planet vegetarian restaurant for lunch yesterday – then in the evening, a sunset beach stroll, an early relaxing night.
Then today another beach stroll this time early morning, followed by a coffee and a chillout massage with a great Ayurvedic masseur (Joby) at Colomb beach and after that a drive into Palolem where we had a relaxed and tasty lunch before returning to the sunbed to snooze for a while.
I also had a great drive home, venturing off my normal route to explore along the way and returned home smiling. I am now seriously considering learning to drive a motorbike when the opportunity presents itself.
Even the fact that we have limited water in my house is not distressing me – it makes a small change only. In fact I am full of beans for the return to work on Monday as I got an email showing great changes and results on bookings for last week.
This means my training is having a great effect on a number of the staff and I now look forward to a full week of mixed training with Induction for 3 days and Closing Skills Sessions for 2 days with all the older staff.
And how things have really changed re plans for the next few months – because last week I was planning to go home in May – changing my flight from 16th April.
I would go back to London in time for my pre-operation assessment, followed by an operation on my bunion, wages tribunal and……………..then return here after a few weeks.
NOW I am staying here instead. All decided as a result of the response to one email – thank you Espy!
However, as I do need to leave India (after 180 days on my visa it is a requirement) I will instead go to Thailand for 2 weeks, visit friends there, relax and that will also be a great change as I have never been there and always fancied it so looking forward to that.
When I get back to India possibly have a bunion operation here later, get dental treatment done and work through the monsoon season. Hwever, I reserve the right to make changes to tha plan!
Looking forward to this new plan now so we will see how we go on.
I love my life most of the time, even though I moan about things occasionally as well, but really moods can so easily be changed in a moment, and where there is a will there is always a way!
Bring on the changes.
