A day all by myself ..

My day started with me getting up at around 10:30 or so after close to an almost 10 hrs of sleep .. Had a late breakfast at around 11 am, went through the news paper (a rare deed which I usually end up doing late into the night) .. post which followed twitter, face book and reading Enthiran reviews ... was fun reading the Enthiran wave which had views from my uncles (most of whom were die hard enthiran fans) and aunts .. Enjoyed reading it :)

After a heavy healthy lunch which consisted of keerai rice (rice with greens) and broccoli and some curd rice to end the meal, I decided on stepping out of home as I was getting restless just being online and doing nothing .. for a long time now I've been wanting to buy a good hand bag but nothing that I came across appealed much to me .. Hence decided to visit a new store in Nungambakam.

Once into the car, I suddenly had an urge to visit the landmark store near Gemini flyover and to my surprise the store had a sale going on .. Loads of books that had more than 50% off and the sale is until tomorrow .. I picked up the month's copy of Lonely planet and Entrepreneur after doing a bit of walking around in the shop .. After which headed to the new bag store in Nungambakam, they had a good collection but nothing that instantly appealed to my liking and need, so thanked the shop keeper and made way to the car.

Just, as I was to enter the car the store keeper came running to let me know there was a pit which was just infront of my car which I otherwise would have happily never noticed .. It was such a thoughtful act from him .. it made me smile :) . Now, I probably think I would go back to the shop to get a bag sometime soon :)

On my way back home I headed to a chaat shop in Anna nagar and relished on Pani Puri and Sev Puri with my friend ... Went for my evening walk after getting back home ... It was a day all by myself , was a much needed break :)
