Mommy Calls

It has been a long night. Most nights are this way now. But thankfully (or not) dawn has arrived and I sit here with a cuppa while The Little Man sleeps on his papa. I think back to my days as a rotating resident in general surgery. The night shifts. Doesn't matter which part of... Continue Reading →

Running vs Lifting

Let's talk some serious business today. Very serious. My new fitness goals. My current obsession. My new thang. My¬†joie de vivre. Like you care about it. HA! Still, I shall trudge on and bore you for a few mins. Or maybe you are utterly bored anyway, and that is why you are here. Either way.... Continue Reading →

The one with the changing bag

Any self respecting blogger with young progeny is bound to pen one of these posts. The one where they share their fine looking, perfectly packed nappy/ changing bag. I too have done one of these, about two odd years (maybe three?) ago. I am embarrassed to go back and read it, therefore I'm not going... Continue Reading →

Holidays

When I first started this blog, about three years ago, I never did have to think so much. I mean, I pretty much penned (rather typed) my thoughts on here, as and when they poured forth. As days became more rushed, the posts became forced. Now, we have reached a point where I sit in... Continue Reading →

First world problems.

Please do no take offence to the fact that my current problem is finding a gym in Doha that opens before 6 AM. And please do not mention those hotel gyms that would cost me... Continue Reading →

I thought it sounded good, but dismissed it as something that old people do. Not sure why the idiot me thought that though. Being aware of one's internal self, and... Continue Reading →

Labour & Delivery @ Women’s Hospital, Qatar

To date, most readers who end up on these pages are those looking for information on the birthing process here in Qatar. A large share of the very large and diverse expatriate population here is mostly the younger demographic. Families that are still expanding. Women getting pregnant and delivering their babies in an alien land,... Continue Reading →

Don’t wait.

We are a restless generation, I'm told. We are impatient they say. We cannot wait. Nobody seems to get the fact that we CAN NOT wait. This is the pace that life dictates. If you haven't noticed, every succeeding generation is more prone to impatience. Why wait anyway? Our lives are most likely going to... Continue Reading →

Broody mornings.

It is 0433 hours. The early morn. The city has already began to stir. The morning runners have commenced their warm up, at the least. The construction industry is well and truly onto the workday. The morning shift nurses have to be at work in about an hour. The school buses would have been plying... Continue Reading →

Rundays are back!

Hiya folks. God it's been long. I have just been going with the flow the past few months. The mission each day is "Survive Today". And so everything except the bare necessities of family and work life have taken a back seat. No. Not the back seat, they have been kicked out of the room... Continue Reading →
