>Sigh! Nice weekend.


Guide on how to book a Weekend Getaway near Mumbai for long weekends.

Step 1 : Study official Holiday List sent out by HR at beginning of the year.

Step 2 : Mark out all long weekends.
Step 3 : Plan on destination for holiday.
Step 4 : Make bookings.
Step 5 : Hide tickets in locker.
Step 6 : Do step 1-5 in complete secrecy IN THE FIRST 2 WEEKS OF THE YEAR. Others should not come to know you are doing this. What if they start doing the same before your bookings are done. Horrors!!
Step 7 : Grin wickedly when idiots like the Diva hunt for bookings a week before the long weekend.

I kid you not. I must have called up atleast 25 resorts in all the sundry weekend places dotting the neighborhoods of the city, only to be told “all is booked”. Really. People here book weekend holidays weeks, no… months in advance. Hah. I have now scouted my holiday list as well. There is a long weekend in August. Decisions will be taken, places will be booked. This very week.

But on the whole, inspite of the disappointment of not being able to take a break from the city, it’s been a lovely weekend. 3 wonderful days of lazing around, eating out at breakfast, lunch and dinner( I’m stuffed, I tell ya), back to back Agatha Christies, half a day of spa ( bliss, bliss, bliss)…

“3 whole days of nothingness”, hubby had said, reflectively. “ We’ll fight by Saturday evening.”


And we did. Saturday afternoon, actually. Sigh. The pitfalls of knowing each other so well. But, happily, all was well very soon. A wonderful, glorious weekend.
