I am alone.

Wife and kid left for Ooty this morning, for a summer vacation. Thanks to too many things that need doing at work and elsewhere, I was unable to go. Arranged for the neighbours’ kids to go along – so now we have 5 women heading for Ooty for a 5 star vacation, for 5 days.

I have been to Ooty many times before – as a kid with my parents, as well as a couple of years ago with Shubha and Anjali. I love that place, though it has really become crowded and noisy of late.

I wish I could have gone. Weather in Ooty is currently just how I like it – rainy, cool, green. I was hoping that I would be able to manage to go, but no joy.

Life sucks.
