Unwinding in style

I don't know if I'm coming or going these days. The hours seem to zip past one another like the trucks on the Doha highway. Whenever I make a momentary glance at the clock, there is always shock and awe... 'Wait a minute, is it already noon' or 'Hey, is it bed time already?'

When they talk about daylight saving time, do they also mean they are saving it for another day? Perhaps that's only if you're 007.

I guess I shouldn't complain. I should be grateful that I don't have to spend my time on a bankrupt airline or mind numbing scam debates. At least I can make the time to do the things I like to do,  some of the time.

I found myself at a wonderfully luxurious spa this afternoon. I opted for a de-stress massage. Call it hallucination, but the massage seemed to have my name on it. It was almost beckoning me to come and unwind.

Five minutes in to the massage and my massuese informed me that my neck and shoulder muscles are too tense. Duh! She reccomend…

My son is six but walks six feet tall

“You have been blessed,” is all the doctor said to me Six years ago.
I never knew what she meant,
but now I do, and it such a joy to see,

From the moment that our eyes first met, I was hooked, And still you have me mesmerised, One glance was all it took,
You made a mother out of me.

You’ve captured our hearts with your sweet imagination, Your unceasing questions and shy reservation, There are innumerable times I can advice you with just gentle persuasion Of course Mama can be a bit harsh on occasion.  
Most people can’t believe you are so young, They say you are more mature while other kids are so high strung,
I tell them it baffles me as well sometimes,
I wonder what I did to deserve such a wonderful child.
So continue to stand tall my little Daniel, You are six today and soon 12, Keep winning hearts, they are far more important than grades, And remember you are worth more than gold or silver can trade.
