They say the Retail Therapy helps to elate your moods…especially for women… For a long time , I believed in it too. A wee bit of shopping helped me to  cheer up ,especially when I got depressed or frustrated with the hectic  homemaker routine! But after what happened today , I shall say , there  are exceptions in every belief…It all depends on situations and  places! It was my toddlers day off at school and since Diwali is  fast approaching, I decided to start some shopping ,before the shops get overcrowded …. ! Since I wanted something exclusive for myself, I  decided to avoid the mall and try out some designer boutiques in  Nasik…. Normally , I was expected to return home,all excited and cheerfull with my purchases…but  today was  an exception…. I checked out most of the boutiques and patiently  waited for the saleswomen to finally understand what I wanted, and  eventually realising they really dont have it!! Finally after  hours of hunting for my Diwali outfit..I gave up…returned home , all  frustrated with the place and the heat ! Retail therapy had a reverse effect…..! And to add to my agony…my maid informed me her  absence for the weekend!! My milkman forgot to deliver milk …and whatever that could go wrong went wrong…For a moment I doubted  if today was friday the 13th..but it wasnt! After  retail therapy , its the Kitchen or cooking therapy that helps me. So  decided to churn up something interesting for evening meal! I m in the  kitchen and I have something exciting planned.. I m always happy! So  yes….eventually it helped…These Pitas turned yumm…and I eventually indulged into them after a long tiring day!!
