Ahhhh......The bane of bad weather.Sitting cooped in within the 4 walls of your home.And to make matters worse,being alone.That's what is strangely sad about this place.Its a very small country,basically a desert towards the outer ends.

There is not much to see or do unless you are willing to shell out ,what in the end is ,more than half of your monthly income in entertaining yourself.I guess its the same everywhere but unlike India,where you can take a long drive to some remote place and see anything,a beach or temples,or relatives and what not.But out here,you are basically without relatives or family.Its you and the single unit family.
I just finished cooking for the day and am waiting for my husband to come home to have lunch with me.I hate eating alone unless I'm unbearably hungry.Rule of thumb is,eat breakfast by yourself and wait for the other main meals to eat as a family.I'm guessing many women do this,they love to eat as a family but I'm not sure about men doing the same.


My husband tells me if liquor was allowed out here,I would have been a drunk.Coz I would seek some sorrow to dwell on and drink for the hell of it.Actually ,I guess I would.Being lonely is a sad thing right,I would have been a full blown alcoholic.
My friends tease me ,no,they actually cannot imagine how do I manage to be alone like this for such long periods of time.They cannot imagine life alone as they have kids and everyone knows,a couple with kids ,actually seek at least an hour of freedom from all that," mummy this and mummy that,daddy this and daddy that."

At times like these I wish I could be In India at my folk's house,watering plants,playing with our dog,walking to the market or just sitting by the flowers and vegetable garden.Or if I won lottery,shop till I drop,build my home and design my home the way I wanted, a typical English cottage like setting with french windows and plants just about everywhere.

I hope you guys read my previous posts on hair fall and stuff.Its my basic setting of worry nowadays.My hair falling due to changing weather.Its time like these when I think Dimple Kapadia is a bitch (Coz she has he best hair I have ever seen on a woman) and Kareena Kapoor is a ......( I love her skin).If I had so much money,maybe I would park myself in a beauty salon every week but alas ! We simpletons will have to just about manage on our own.Hurray to Internet where you can read all these things and update your knowledge.
Painted my nails maroon yesterday,they kind of look very pretty but then those damn dishes are gonna chip them gradually and they will look like....like what...Nails of a housewife of course.

Some of my Pakistani friends and others used to ask me long time ago,is it really how the Indian housewives are,as they portray them on the telly? Dawned in makeup and jewellery and beautiful saris? I don't think so,I don't know how the wife of a millionaire is at home.I don't think someone would deck up like everyday and sit at their house.My understanding is a rich man is never at home,coz he is always working ,minting money while a woman is by herself ,surrounded by his kids and just hoping to do something on her own ,so she doesn't bore herself to death.

I have no idea where I'm going with this blog right now . Have  a great day people !

Beauty secrets : Multani Mitti

I was 20 when during my monthly eye brow shaping,my beautician was like you should try a facial.But I refused As my skin has been always too sensitive and the marks of anything and everything from simple burns to blemishes takes years to fade off.That's when she told me about multani mitti.As usual I didn't pay any attention initially but she was like,you can clean your face weekly with this mud pack made with rose water and your skin would be simply clean.I tried it whenever my eyes caught hold of the pack in my cupboard.Then 10 years later,it again became a staple in my cupboard but now I use it every week.

What is Multani mitti?

Its a type of mud,smells like clean mud and feels like mud on your skin.I reckon if one uses chemicals like bleach on the face,this would be a lovely soothing alternative in your beauty regimen.

I buy this chunk of of this rock like thing and sit at home and break them into small pieces and grind them in a mortar and pestle.I was scared to use my gr…

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation. Choose foods with healthy fats such as fish, walnuts, soy, canola oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Here's a list of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.

Camel

You must be wondering what the heck has she written about urine.Is it one the tests she had taken or some disease.

Actually yesterday some friend of my husband told him that eating camel meat stew is beneficial for people with muscle and bone problems and that very soon he would make me feast on it.I personally love camel meat,its tastier,lighter than beef,its just a beautiful meat but its a little more time to cook than the normal meat.So I thought why not find out the benefits of camel meat and while doing so,came across this article about camel urine benefits.

Don't go yuck people,I think in India,people bathe in cow urine when they have some skin infection.My brother and I did this as very small kids.We had been on a holiday to India and developed some skin eczema or chicken pox or measles....so as usual my granny said try this as well when the western medications failed.I know camel meat may not be available in India as commonly as out here but there is nothing wrong in know…
