I am ever grateful to this couple who befriended us when we moved in here. Today they are more than friends – more like framily. It has been over an year since we moved. Honestly, I did not make any friends here. These couples stay two hours away from us. But we meet atleast once… Continue reading Day 24 – Framily

Rajma-chawal, turkey keema and pappad it was. Post lunch, we headed out for the shopping. We had a… Continue reading Day 23 – Today..

This message on the teabag bought a smile on my face.. How lucky are we to live this life. Inspite of having everything, we often overlook them and complain about what’s not there. This message on the teabag made us all philosophical this evening 😆. It made us count our blessings. Life’s little reminders! Stay… Continue reading Day 21- Little reminders

Last year when I went for the written test for learners’ license, I failed the vision test 😌😌 and they threw me out even before the written test. Though I can read without glasses, I wasn’t able to read then. Then I had to get the doctor’s certification about my vision. After ages we took… Continue reading Day 14 – Getting a DL – the beginning (again)
I HAVE TO record this here, as the happiest memory 😌 I absolutely hate the choices hubby makes when it comes to clothes. Basically, anything he ends up liking enough to bring home is grandpa-ish by my standards. (I keep telling him that the only good choice he has made so far is choosing me… Continue reading Day 13 – Jacket shopping

Though hubby’s office is just 15 mints drive away, he carries his lunchbox. Many people from this apartment comes home for lunch from the same office. But this guy just wana avoid the extra commute. Only on special occasions like Onam or Vishu does he come home for lunch to indulge in the sadhya. Yesterday evening,… Continue reading Day 10 – Hubby comes home for lunch
