This post is just for me, and my memories:) It has no worth at all, for any other readers, no recommendations on what to read, eat, where to visit, or how to spend these glorious summer days. It is just a post that I wanted to write, to remember the fun I've been having the … Continue reading The joy of experiencing things for the first time!
Father's day is around the corner and if you've read another of my recent posts, where I talk about including the celebration of 'Days' created for humans and invented by consumerism, you'll know, that I'd definitely want to celebrate Father's day (even though the father in question may not want to..lol). I know, moms are sacred … Continue reading Thank you, Fathers
I re-wrote the draft and the header of this post almost four times, before deciding to just go with it and publish it! I kept thinking whether people would be interested to know about my week and weekly chores or if I should just write a personal journal entry instead. In the end, I just … Continue reading Doing more with the same time- what a week!
Last Sunday was Mother's day, and the whole world was celebrating it, except for people in the UK! I was kind of upset about this. All my friends, their moms, their partners, and even my own mom, were posting pictures and thank you messages on Facebook, Instagram, Watsapp groups, Blogs, Twitter, about the joy their … Continue reading The invention of new ‘days’
Last night, I started my first attempt at bullet journaling. It isn't as pretty as all the salivating bullet journal pictures I see on Instagram, but it served my purpose of neatly capturing all I achieved, learnt, wanted to do and many other things for the day in a single page. At that instant, I … Continue reading 20 Years of Journaling
When I was in school in India, I remember reading this page on the beginning of each book, which was titled 'Gandhi's Talisman' (I'm sure most of us know who Gandhi was, but if you don't, you can Google him:)). So it was a short paragraph that said, "Whenever you are in doubt regarding your … Continue reading The simple joys, toddler illness and Gandhi’s Talisman this week
My little darling daughter turned 2 years old this Friday!! Two years have gone by already and she has now entered her terrific twos (as one of my other friend calls it), and why not? She is going to know more about herself and about the people around her and I hope I get to … Continue reading Stuff I learnt from my second year of motherhood
This week has seen my reading obsession take a whole new level. I can't believe it, but all I can think about is reading, how to read more, how to discuss about my books with other people more and how to encourage the love of reading with everyone. It's funny, that as soon as I … Continue reading All things reading this week
Last weekend, my toddler was finally slightly better and we decided that we were going to brave the cold and the wind and just plan to go out that weekend. I was seriously starting to get tired being indoors, entertaining my child with almost the same games and watching TV. So, Saturday morning, we had … Continue reading Outdoors vs Indoors
I took a week to come up with the header of this post. Initially, I thought, I'll write a 'How to' post about socializing or having a life outside work and baby. But after the highs of the previous week, came the lows of this week, which made me realize, I'm no expert at this! … Continue reading Social life as a toddler mom- Goals vs Reality
