Me Time!

Music is food for the soul. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a leisurely hour to listen to music or enjoy it. At times I am so tired that any background music also seems like noise and irritates me. Long baths, with my favorite music playing in the background is something I used…

Travel Diaries – Mangalore

This year has started off great in terms of travel for us. In fact, since the end of last year itself. We went to Waynad with the sister’s family during the Christmas weekend, to Chennai during the Republic Day weekend and to Mangalore the last weekend. It may seem like a lot of travel to…

Pregnancy Diary – 18.04.2017

I was thinking today and realized that I am quite enjoying being pregnant. I was rather feeling sad today that I get to be in this phase for just another 45 days or so. Sure, the sitting, turning, bending, walking, everything takes effort and is uncomfortable. But the sensation of my baby wiggling, prodding at…

Pregnancy Diary – 20.03.2017

Okay, this is not going to be easy. 😐 Well nobody ever told it’s going to be easy. Maybe it was just my over-confidence. As if the pain in the ribs wasn’t enough, I slipped in the bathroom today to further pull the same muscles and have been struggling with the pain ever since. I…

2017 Round-up

So it’s that time of the year again, when I get off my ass and wipe the dust off my blog and write a year-end round-up post. Well, this year I at least have a valid reason for being busy – my Gundu. This year 2017 is always, always going to be special. Our bundle…

Pregnancy diary – 14.03.2017

Okay! Doesn’t look like anybody has a solution to this. I am tired of scrolling through endless forum conversations with people discussing how each of them have a broken rib from coughing, but nobody gives a clear solution as to doing what will reduce the pain or the urge to cough. I am tired. 2…

Pregnancy Diary – 02.03.2017

“I wrote these posts when I was expecting. There’s always a fear associated with sharing things publicly before the due date, which made me hold back from posting them back then. However I would like to share them now.” I am not sure, why I didn’t think of this before. I wanted to make a…

Welcoming Gundu Onboard

When the long wait ends with something so beautiful to hold in the arms, it all feels worthwhile! 🙂 Yes, after 9 long months of growing fat, feeling hungry, vomiting, waddling and dealing with a variety of emotions – happiness, worry, anxiety, anticipation, my baby is here! Going by the ideal calculations, he should have…

Y – Yummy

Have you ever given it a thought? No matter how much we curse the summer heat, the best things that nature offers to you, is during summer. While winter strips of the trees, leaving them bare, it is during summer that you will find the trees dressed in their best green, blooming with the prettiest…

U – Unwind

People have a variety of ways to unwind. Some listen to music, some paint, some just put their legs up and watch TV and some take a nap! Though all of these are valid for me at different times, having a nice conversation is what is most relaxing. I had never been the child who…

R – Rendezvous

My best buddy who lives in Chennai got married in November. His engagement was more of a family affair that was organized by the girl’s family and was held in Kerala. We had decided to skip that, assuming we would anyway attend the wedding. Unexpectedly something really important came up at our end in November…

L – Love

Love they say is overrated. Is it really? Come to think of it, what is life without love and care? Love in any form – love for your children, love between siblings, among friends, love for your partner. These form the essence of life. It is among these relationships that we exist and evolve. If…
