The ‘Reasonable’ Week

24 Oct

Certain set of days just give you a smug and a contented feeling. That was my last week- all 7 days.  I had it all in place just like the radio show on 104.2 FM – Ration ki dukaan-‘sab kuch milega, par thoda thoda’. Some amount of reading, some studying, wee bit of working out, good amount of cooking, decent amount of browsing, time with friends and fabulous time with family.

The highlight of the week was — Mimi learnt to say ‘CAR” . Yeah, well before she can say Amma or Papa. It feels a bit sad but then car is fine too. Continue reading

The Week That Was..

Happy Dusshera!

Sheera /Halwa prasad to all my readers!

What a week it has been! The Millenium Trilogy kept me company for most. This Trilogy by Stieg Larsson is about a kick-ass heroine Lisabeth Salander. A socially inept woman with a strong sense of whats right and whats wrong. So I have been reading in between meals, while cooking, while shoving the clothes into the washing machine, so you can imagine what a page turner it is. Continue reading

The week that went by

12 Oct

There are days when you feel stagnant. That is how my week began. I just did not feel motivated to do anything. Not cleaning, not checking out my next chapter of “French for Beginners”, not hitting the gym, not reading, not studying, not even surfing the net. Zero Motivation like in the zero cal fizz drink minus the fizz. Days poured in and out like people visiting but not acknowledging your presence. It did not feel strange since I’ve had days like this before. I knew their kind. They just come and go. You don’t feel a thing.

Probably it was just Mimi who thought differently. She had Tinkerbell for company. Mimi tried her best to cheer me up as she danced to Tinkerbell songs and clapped her hands in glee. Continue reading

Mimi turns 1

7 Oct

It’s that time in my life when I am so happy that I have no words to describe what am feeling. Though this post comes a bit late, I had to put it here, nevertheless.

Happy first birthday to my little Darling.


Love you and May God Bless you!

How to hold your drink & have it too ( For a parent)

7 Oct

It is one of those days, when I am itching to write but I do not have any idea in my head to play with. It is frustrating to say the least. It is that state of mind where ideas are bouncing of the walls but not staying long enough for more tete-a-tete.  So when Amit came home , I realized, I wasnt the only one feeling this way. He too was stressed, irritated and tired. Basically, both of us were frustrated. There are ways we could vent out our frustrations but it was too early in the evening with the baby tottering around. It wasn’t going to work out. So he made himself some rum with coke and poured me a glass of wine. We sipped and dipped for a while, talking about life and how it was treating us these days. Turns out, both of us weren’t as harassed as we thought we were. That is why alcohol is said to bring happiness and joy. The sorrows that we thought were haranguing us, was actually self-created and self improvised.

Now now, as a new mom ( not exactly new but I still like to think so) alcohol doesn’t feature regularly on my list of having a good time. Definitely not at home! In spite of it all, we decided to pump down a drink or two.

Two pegs down, and Amit started to get a bit relaxed—- indicators being, laughing louder than he usually would, being opinionated ( which usually he isn’t), asking if there is something sweet at home etc. On the other hand, I was still quite okay. Two drinks did not do much, I looked at my glass and recalled a time when two were enough for me to call it a day. As Amit sat there mulling over what he should watch now from his downloaded stuff, I decided to rake my brains to find out what had changed since then. I struggled with various theories – Continue reading
