Deepavali decorations are up at Serangoon Road and for me it signals the end of the year and all the things I meant up but failed to achieve. Yes, I’m being gloomy rather than positive. I guess I could look at it as a reminder that I have more than a month before Deepavali which falls on the 2nd of November this year. After that comes Christmas and New Year where the guilty pangs really set in.
On a brighter note the season brings all the irresistible sweet treats. The best kind being the home made ones and when they are shared in a family setting.
Thinking about my nieces making a beeline for those cookies, which I know they will love more than their baby food makes me smile in anticipation.
I know. I’m a contradiction of emotions.
