Thursday challenge – Ripples within Ripples

Its been ages since I took up a Thursday Challenge post. Thanks to Ash (of Krishnaleela fame), who kindly mentioned it on FB (actually, ahem, she said she found my blog thrown up on Google when she looked up Thursday challenge .. He he ๐Ÿ™‚ talk about ‘cheap thrills’ :lol:), I was motivated to try it again.

So, this week’s theme is ‘LIQUID’. I just took these pictures the other day, because I found it fascinating to see – Ripples WITHIN ripples ๐Ÿ™‚

Ripples within ripples! - A shot of the river Thames

On closer look, I found that the ripples were being caused by rain water leaking from the train tracks that ran overground, just above the river ๐Ÿ™‚ How beautiful is that!!!!

The whole picture!

And on that note, Happy Thursday folks. Can’t wait for Friday evening, as this week has been manic, with the weather touching 24 degrees, which is ‘HOT’ by London standards!

On losing weight and gaining friends

Sigh! I finally decided to DO SOMETHING about my weight.

I got myself a really cool pair of cropped joggers and a branded sporty Tee! If that didn’t inspire me enough, I tuned the TV to a Fitness channel! And with all this gear in place, I got on. On to the laptop, I mean, and efficiently wasted an hour or so on Facebook and blog-hopping! (Now I don’t mean Blog-hopping is a waste of time… before our local Naradas and Naradis get to work on this!!).

Then I read a friends FB status about ‘Do-nuts and Krispy Kreme’ and almost felt faint at the thought of a delicious melting-in-the-mouth Do-nut ๐Ÿ™„ Before I could fall for the trap, I pulled myself up, and actually got onto the treadmill. Yippee!!!! Twenty minutes later (with about 3 breaks in-between ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ) I was still not through, and I tried some Aerobics from this DVD that promised me ‘REAL RESULTS’ ๐Ÿ˜‰ (Which btw, quite turned off Hubby – who seemed pretty upset at the inclusion of that elderly lady in the group of young nubile lasses ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

By evening, I was so enthused, that I laid a bet with a friend of mine, about who would lose more weight by the end of this month.

So in the selfless spirit of TRUE friendship, we set off to encourage each other.

With best wishes and warm regards, I sent her a box of laddoos and milk-sweets, along with a packet of yummy Cheedai!

For her part, my ‘friend’ promptly sent me a HUGE bar of Cadbury’s fruit and nut chocolate! I couldn’t hurt her sentiment, so this morning, I forced myself to eat about 6 pieces of that divine treat ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Sigh!!! What else can one do? Refuse a gift and hurt a friend’s sentiment? Or accept the gift, and make sure you give back much more?

Got to go now, folks. Plans are on, to make and send some paneer makhani in return ๐Ÿ˜‰ So much for weight loss!
