Day 86 | Holi Hai...

Holi Hai... Today is Holi, spring festival, in India. It has been 8 years since I celebrated this festival of colours with my loved ones. Instead of throwing cheery colours of rainbow, we threw silver snow balls at each other in our tiny back garden with a gorgrous backdrop of setting sun bringing colours to our life.

Wishing you all who are celebrating this festival of colours, a very Happy Holi! :)

Day 84 | Aftermath

of non stop snowing on weekend! DH almost lost control of car which refused to come under control and slid down on the slope near Lil Dumpling's daycare! But all's well that ends well and we all are still in one piece! The snow is slowly melting and hopefully the roads will become safe for travel in a day or two day's time!!! But the weather forecast says we can expect more snow tomorrow! Seriously, snow has lost its magic by now!

Day 79 | Darkness

Right now my mood matches the dark skies above me! I am soooo angry with someone and if by any chance I am to come face yo face with that guy, I will not think twice to say what I think of him in very colourful language! Oh we live in this world where some feel they can just get away doing what they like even when it is unethical!!!

Day 78 | Home Alone 2

I really dislike the days like these when I am left all alone at home! Hopefully I should be able to get back to work tomorrow. Only consolation is there is some lovely sunlight streaming through the window to keep me in good spirits!

Day 77 | Home Alone

It's been a week since I stepped out of the house. First it was Lil Dumpling and then it was me who was a victim of joke for 3 best friends; cold, cough and fever! Instead of making best use of sick leave by resting, here I am feeling guilty for sending Lil Dumpling to daycare. Home bound n bed ridden and yet struggling to comeover mommy guilt! Ah motherhood....

Day 76 | Surprises

Even after 7+ years of married life, DH still continues to give me surprises! The most unromantic husband came home with a bunch of colourful flowers to cheer me and that is a huge suprise!!! :)

Day 74 | Red Nose Day

Today is Red Nose Day, a UK-wide fundraising event organised by Comic Relief. On Red Nose Day everyone is encouraged to cast inhibitions aside, put on a Red Nose and do something funny for money.

 Since Lil Dumpling is unwell, he missed getting his hair colored to bright red and participate in fund raising in his daycare, I decided to have our own Red Nose Day at home. Although my nose has turned bright shade of scarlet with all that sneezing and all, and didn't actually need putting the red nose, my this avatar has made someone laugh out loud :) It is a welcome sound in a house of sick people :)

Day 73 | Tasty

{are those tiny dimpled hands and feet which you can easily get addicted to!}

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small,
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls.
But every day I’m growing,
I’ll be all grown up someday,
And all these tiny handprints
Will simply fade away.
 So here’s a special handprint
Just so you can recall,
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small.

Day 72 | 3 Days Without Daddy Dear

It made me all teary eyed in the end to see Lil Dumpling trying to break open the window when he saw his Appa getting into the taxi instead of driving away in his car. I think at last he understood that his dad is not going to the office as usual! It's not even 5 mins since K left, and I have been asked some 50 times as where did daddy go by a teary Lil Dumpling :( Oh well...Just 3 more days to go!!!

Oh dear!!!

Day 70 | Important

I am really glad and very proud of the fact that the most important person in my life enjoys one of the most important life skills, cooking! Here is a batch of cookies that he helped in baking in his daycare and decorated all by himself as his gift to me for the Mother's day celebration! It surely is a proud mama moment :)

Day 68 | Faceless Self Potrait

“Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did - that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that - a parent's heart bared, beating forever outside its chest.”  ~ Debra Ginsberg

Day 67 | Favourite

The mother's day (Mothering Sunday) is just around the corner here in England. So my favourite person/artist made these two colourful pieces of art for me in his daycare and surprised this evening :) I am going to treasure (along with hundred other colourful pieces of art) this forever!

Day 66 | Fear...

of darkness is something Lil Dumpling and I have in common. That's why we both need a night light glowing right next to us when sleeping!

Day 63 | {I Am} Lucky

I feel like I've been lucky, because I don't feel like I've ever tried to be somebody I'm not. People might disagree.
