And I felt absolved from the niggling guilt I had been feeling for ‘abandoning ‘ my visiting sis and her family and snuggling back into my home for a few days. The family holiday had been wonderful. My sis and co were staying on in Cbe in my father’s home for a few more days. Another sister chose to take leave from her job and spend more time with them. More people came to join the merry crowd. They were engaged in lots of gala activities. ‘You should have stayed back’, my father has been saying often.
But somehow, I didn’t want to. Maybe I needed to come back home to recharge my batteries. And as my cousin was saying, sometimes you really need the peace and quiet . And it seems okay to give in to the need.
