Home Sweet Home

Finally got an internet connection....

The heat is killing. Someone tell me please that this is just in May or I might start regretting coming back! ;o)

Anyway life is pretty hectic right now with me nearly going crazy living off a suitcase. Poor hubby boy is out all day looking for cars and houses. I am keeping my fingers and every other body part crossable crossed mighty tight hoping that we'd find a decent place soon..but by Jove the rent prices are crazy in Colombo!

H1 however is adapting beautifully without a complaint. On our way into Col from the airport she pensively said "Now there will be lot's of itching for me to do..." I think she remembered all the mosquito bites she had the last time we were here ;o). Yesterday Puncha took her to a park nearby and when H1 returned, her cloths were covered in dust. Hubby remarked how dirty her cloths were and she philosophically said, "That's how Sri Lankan parks are Thaaththi. Dirty. Anyway, we can always wash our cloths" That's my Sri Lankan girl, I thought!

She had her first school interview and I think it went well. There's another one at the end of the month. Hope we'll get her into that school. must start looking for kindergartens once we settle down. Did I mention that life is hectic right now? Maaaaaaan life is hectic. But every time I think of complaining about our no-where-to-stay status I think of the IDPs....


  1. good to know you're now closer to us..:)

    I remember I used to be allergic to mosquito bites.. i had terrible marks on my legs and i used to scratch so much that I would bleed from the wounds and my socks would stick to my skin!

    even when I think of it, it obviously disgusts me..but now most marks are gone and there's absolutely no allergy anymore..:)

    good luck settling down..:)

  2. Greatta hear from you Su.. and Welcome Home! =D (I mean to Lanka) hehe..

    Anyway your li'l girl has such cute and wise remarks for her age.. I'm sure she'll give tons of sweet surprises to her new teachers and friends out there. =D

    And about the heat.. it's toggling between 29C and 32C even here so yep, Col might be like a furnace I'm sure. -__-

    oh and hope you'll find a nice cozy home pretty soon!

  3. Hope you settle down soon. We did that twice in the last year and didn't enjoy it at all.

  4. Welcome home!! Children are so adaptable, aren't they? Hope it cools down a bit for you.

    Your country is now headline news here every day, as Tamil-Canadian protesters block the streets in Toronto and Ottawa. I wish you all peace.

    You must be happy to be near your family again!!
