Country roads, take me home

Wish you could see the dance I am doing while typing this. I can barely sit still .. because..... in a few weeks ... I ..am.. going.. home. Yipee!

To me, going home.. always.. always.. means going to my parents place. Maybe its because I've been away since college and that's where the whole 'going home' excitement started. Ofcourse, I love our home here and all that .. but its a whole different thing being pampered by grandmothers .. and lazing in your old room. Added to that, my sister is coming .. which is a much rarer thing than me landing up every 6 - 8 months.

I have already started stocking up on loads of presents. Till now we'd been uncertain about whether we would go .. but now it seems much more likely.. so present shopping can get ramped up. People also send strange lists - cheese, chocolates (I hate it .. since you get Toblerone and Lindt in India and its so heavy to carry .. the only things that beat it are soaps and shampoos) ..tinned fish!.. dish washing sponges .. you get the drift.
This time we are even carrying a duvet for someone! But when I know I am going home.. I am indulgent of all such demands .. because I know .. that soon .... I'll be sleeping in my old old bed again.

Oh how exciting!
I can't wait for my jaunt home either - you're so lucky that people have told you what they want, I'm going to have to figure out what to get folks and I HATE shopping! Sigh...
But yay, will be home soon!

[C] That's why I like going home in Dec.. because that's when everyone else is planning their trip and there's so much excitement in the air.

[Nee] Oh..I hate shopping too. Cannot imagine going to Oxford Street any more, too many people. Some people have said what they want.. for the rest ..I have to use my very limited imagination.
