Hangover

by

Hangover on 12th Main Road in Indra Nagar celebrated its first anniversary recently, and they did it in style with a lovely printed invite to our house. Hangover does some marvelous alcohol, so in spite of release deadlines and everything, we cleared up our calendars for the evening to go visit.

What I Read Last Week

by

I’ve worked myself to the bone that past month. Which means that the Man Booker reading list I started on so ambitiously three months ago has sputtered to a halt for now. I had started on The Year of the Runaways by Sunjeev Sahota, but my mind was too dulled down to process it satisfactorily.

Instead, I randomly picked up two review books that had come in.

Buying into some quirk at Happoz

by

I have been on the hunt for some Game of Thrones inspired merchandise available in India for some time now. I trawled through ebay.in and some other sites, but never really saw anything that I liked and that I could justify buying – as in get some use out of it. I have no interest in keepsakes, collectibles, or showpieces. Anything I get must have a use.

The Night Circus

by

This book has sat on my bookshelf for years. I bought it when it first came out (about five years ago?). I was charmed by the beautiful cover and the blurb, but then a reviewer whose opinions I trust was quite scathing about the book, so I left it unread all these years, until I stumbled across it while cleaning out my shelves recently. I skimmed through the first couple of pages and thought I’d give this book a try.

A Suits Guide to How Lies Can Screw Your Life Up

by

Well – this obviously needs no telling, does it? The main plot of Suits was based on what was a very well hidden lie until now. But besides that, the show has proven time and again(like it needs any proving) that lies can totally make your life go topsy-turvy any second, making you feel like you’re changing horses in midstream. While this entire season has been about recovering from that lie and getting Mike out, we hope that the finale ends on a happy (truthful) note!

They are needed in your life for sure. It would be pretty disastrous to go without! Here are a few ideas for you. It is nice to be able to save a little on the things that you need to buy.

Horse-gram

by

Piglet’s horse riding classes are going on in full steam. His initial reluctance and fears were wiped away within the first five classes, and he’s now getting confident on his seat, even eschewing the beginner ring, and instead holding his reins to control the horse.

I have also started to feel a little more relaxed about these classes. I was nervous initially because a scared Piglet can be pretty unpredictable, but the teacher was wonderful, calming him down, and riding with him until he got comfortable.

So now that I am a little relaxed, I thought I’d spend a little time honing my till now non-existent photography skills and try to capture those free horses who are not involved in the class.
