Today started much earlier than I would have liked.. at 3.00am! Samudra decided to wake up and start pulling my hair and rolling around the bed to his bapak and keeping us both awake.. All attempts to settle him by feeding or sitting in the rocking chair failed, and after 5 minutes of peace he was at it again, and this continued until just after 6.00am when he finally decided to sleep again for half an hour. Needless to say I didn’t achieve too much today at all.
I did manage to make it up to Nikki’s Salon in Kemang to get my hair coloured and I was looking forward to just relaxing in the chair for a few hours, zoning out on trashy magazines and enjoying some peace and quiet time. That didn’t happen! Instead I looked at loads of gorgeous photos of one of the hairdressers sons on his blackberry, and everyone was in unusually chatty moods so no zoning out for me! I then felt relieved to have survived a hair raising ride home on the back of a pretty dodgy ojek, who had so many near misses on our ride home as he was going so far, despite my requests to go slowly! Once upon a time I would have found the situation funny, but now I have Samudra to think about, I really want to make it home in one piece.
I also didn’t have a camera today so didn’t get a chance to take any photos while I was out, or when I returned home to Samudra out the front of the house in the baby sling with Iyah, surrounded by loads of kids and adults all just hanging out. It really is a lovely atmosphere out on the street, now if only I could have a proper conversation with everyone!
As I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures, I am having a ‘Throwback Thursday’ and posting two photos taken earlier this year that really make me happy when I look at them!
I hope you had a fun day wherever in the world you are too.
