Zini, me & life in general

Bye Bye & Hello…..

Again my internet broke down, which meant that i was once again on a forced blog break. Meanwhile a few things happened, so i will give updates on that πŸ™‚

Bye Bye 6 years

Dear A, It feels like yesterday when we met!!! But we haveΒ been married since 6 years (and almost 10 years since we met for the 1st time)!!!! How far we have come!!! During all these years there were days filled with happiness and fun. and there were also days when things didn’t feel right. But we are going to take all the happy memories with us and bid bye bye to those not so happy ones.

Hello new year

Yes, for us it is the new year!!! A new year of togetherness, a new year of possibilities, a new year of happiness and a new year of celebration!!!

Thanks a lot for being there for me and enduring myΒ crankinessΒ (which attacks whenever Zini throws a tantrum πŸ˜‰ )

Bye Bye Mummy

Yes, finally my mom came. But she came only for a week. She helped me with Zini and the house. We went out on our mother-daughter shopping trips and we even watched a movie (Barfi) together after a very long time πŸ™‚

I also enjoyed some of my favourite mom-made food πŸ™‚

But before i realized the week was over and it was time to say Bye Bye 😦

Hello Missing home syndrome

After mummy left, hubby too had to go for an almost week long business trip, which meant suddenly it was only Zini and me at home. And it led to me missing home big time. Though this time, Zini behaved and didn’t give me tough time.

Bye Bye BSNL:

I loved your services in Hyderabad and Ahmedabad but sorry to say in Noida you are not upto the mark. After so many breakdowns of your internet network, finally we have decided to say bye-bye to you.

Hello Airtel

After saying Bye- Bye to BSNL, we have chosen you to provide us with internet, you are a bit costly, but you hold promise of better service. For now, you work great. So Hello Airtel πŸ™‚

Bye Bye Methi

I have been bitten by gardening bug (Not that i have big space to garden in, but). I tried to grow Methi twice at my home, but each time, sparrows attacked the young plants and left my pot empty 😦

Hello Paalak

Now, i have little Paalak plants at home and i am not taking any chance with them. I have covered them so that sparrows leave my little babies alone. keeping my fingers crossed πŸ™‚

  1. firstttttttt πŸ™‚

  2. ohhh its on moderation so dont know if i am first πŸ™‚

    hey congrats on the anniversary.. so when is the partyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy πŸ™‚
    and pallak is also very good.. and good u covered the pots .. πŸ™‚

    • you indeed are 1st πŸ™‚
      Come over, we will have a party πŸ™‚
      Yeah, but covering may lead to excess heat due to green house effect. so keeping my fingers crossed. Let’s see how the paalaks fare….

      • aree no no you can get those jute covers, or grill types or just make at home .. Get three small sticks and tie them in a cone shaped..

        plenty of air and sunlight to go through and it saves from birds πŸ™‚ easy peasy

      • techie2mom said:

        Hmmm…But those covers are a bit costly and i don’t want to invest in them unless i succeed at this. But your comment has given me an idea, i will use one of my old light cotton dupattas after poking holes in it to cover the plants. Thanks πŸ™‚

  3. Congratulations πŸ™‚ palak and methi… have fun growing…

  4. Awww… did you read my mind TM? I was wondering what happened to you only this morning and here I see this post πŸ™‚ Good to know all that happened during your absence.

    Wishing you and A many many happy and wonderful married years πŸ™‚ Hope you had a lot of fun.

    Mom-daughter shopping, eating fav food cooked by mom, sitting back while mom takes care of certain things – is just so blissful πŸ™‚

    Hopefully, airtel will keep you online and we dont want you to go on another break!!

    I had been hoping to grwo some corriander atleast, for the past one month and somehow, even my old plants have killed themselves 😦 all the very best with your palak πŸ™‚

    Finally, Welcome back!! πŸ™‚

    • techie2mom said:

      Thanks a lot GB πŸ™‚
      I know, it was so blissful and relaxing to have mom around. But when she left, it felt so bad 😦
      Yeah, Airtel here has good rep. I hope it lives up to it πŸ™‚
      Go ahead and grow coriander. i too am trying for them, let’s see how it works out πŸ™‚

  5. wow! that was a big dose of hellos and byes! πŸ™‚ i too have grown methi in a huge pot! some little ones have come out and i’m patiently waiting for a whole lot to come out so that i can make some paranthas! πŸ™‚ good luck with palak! πŸ™‚

    • techie2mom said:

      Wow, you got methi too πŸ™‚
      Take care of them and protect them from birds, who specialize in attacking young plants. All the best πŸ™‚
      Thanks πŸ™‚

  6. Hey ZM, good to see you back! Well, you’ve been busy! Wow, watching a movie with your mom, so lovely! All the best with the palak plants this time around:)

    • techie2mom said:

      Yes, i have been pretty busy πŸ™‚
      Yeah, you know last movie i watched with my mom was Dil Chahta hai!!!! Can you believe it? Good we went and watched Barfi πŸ™‚
      Thanks πŸ™‚

  7. happy anniversary and good luck with gardening.. πŸ™‚ thats a nice concept of bye byes and hellos πŸ™‚

  8. Congratulations ,may you both love and live like this πŸ™‚

    Yeah time with mom is never enough isn’t it?

    • techie2mom said:

      Thanks & Welcome πŸ™‚
      True..I want mom to be around always…Am i any better than Zini πŸ˜‰ ?!?!

  9. Congrats on your anniversary! May you both have long,happy and blessfull marriage! By the you didn’t get your methi. Was waiting for it! He he he

    • techie2mom said:

      Thanks Vini πŸ™‚
      No, didn’t get methi, all the methi was eaten by sparrows 😦
      Though i am planning to try again, let’s see, how it goes this time…

  10. Congrats to both of you on completing 6 years of married life πŸ™‚
    I was wondering where you had disappeared again… was planning to email you.
    Hope the new internet connection is more reliable. good luck with your palak plants. I too have tried keeping plants but they were always destroyed by monkeys or birds 😦 So I have given up. Now I just try to keep my Tulsi plant alive and safe.

    • Thanks a lot πŸ™‚
      I too hope so…
      Ohh, you have monkey problem also!!!Birds are still manageable, you can cover the plants to stop their access. But monkeys won’t leave anything….
      Yeah, keeping tulsi well is a good idea πŸ™‚

  11. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I envy you gardening! It must be awesome to grow palak, methi for yourself man!
    Happy anniversary to you guys πŸ™‚ And isn’t mom cooking your favorite food the best thing ever? πŸ™‚

    • techie2mom said:

      Arey there is nothing to envy about. I sow the seeds, the seedlings come out and then sparrows eat them 😦
      We are yet to taste the fruit of my labour…
      Thanks for the wishes πŸ™‚
      I know, that’s the best thing to happen (especially after having your child and cooking meals after meals for her everyday)

  12. from now on no bye-byes from the blog duniya, okies πŸ™‚

    anniversary special batao batao πŸ˜‰

    hope you make yummy theplas with home grown methi!!

    • Yeah, i too hope so πŸ™‚
      Arey, hubby gave me card and gift and i baked a surprise cake πŸ™‚
      And my mom joined us on that day πŸ™‚
      Arey no methi yet Visha…Sparrows ate them all. Though will try again. For now it is paalak πŸ™‚ So paalak paneer and paalak puris it will be – hopefully πŸ™‚

      • i know its only palak, but still we can always wish for you πŸ˜‰ moreover, methi theplas score over paalak paneer for me, hence am rooting for methi :mrgreen:

      • techie2mom said:

        Yeah, i am going try to grow methi again πŸ™‚
        Thanks for rooting for methi. I too am partial to methi thepla πŸ™‚

  13. Happy anniversary! Good to hear from you after a long time!

  14. lol!!! This was a fun post….and Moms going away is always a bad feeling na? sigh!!!

    Hope Airtel turns up to be better than BSNL…

    Belated wishes for your mrrg anniversary & togetherness…

    And apalak at home? wow!! I am planning to have a kitchen garden in my kitchen tearrace once we move to our own place πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Smita πŸ™‚
      I know, you never want your mom to leave 😦
      Yeah i too have high hopes on Airtel…
      Now i am seriously J of you Smita…You will have space to have a kitchen garden!!! Wow, all the best, may you enjoy home grown veggies and fruits πŸ™‚

      • Hello kitchen garden = smalllll place in front of a balcony which my hubby is already threatening to take over πŸ˜‰

        Madam I live in Mumbai where our living room is as big as a garden in other places πŸ˜‰

      • techie2mom said:

        Ok get it :)…
        But don’t let your hubby take over and grow some veggies there. I am sure as with everything else you will do great with gardening also…

  15. Belated wishes ZM πŸ™‚ Wishing you a happy happy life together filled with love and friendship πŸ™‚
    Ooooo – gardening at home sounds so good! and what better than growing your own greens and veggies – πŸ™‚
    Oh and mom visit. Sigh! Somehow going there and coming back is better. If they come and then return to their place, it becomes so so hard. Hugs!

    • techie2mom said:

      Thanks for the wishes πŸ™‚
      Yeah, but i am not very successful at gardening yet…
      Hmmm…I agree. Actually after coming back from Ahmedabad, normally i am in a relaxed mood and don’t get worked up easily. Going there is definitely better…

  16. Belated Anniversary Wishes T2M !
    Good luck with your gardening..Zini will also love to see the plants grow and water them..Let us know what you prepare with the palak from your garden πŸ™‚

    • techie2mom said:

      Thanks a lot πŸ™‚
      Zini actually overwaters them at time πŸ™„ so now i have started watering them before she wakes up πŸ™‚
      Yeah if the paalak grows big enough, keeping my fingers crossed….

  17. Happy anniversary dear πŸ™‚
    Glad your internet troubles are finally over. Wow! to mum coming over and you having a good time πŸ™‚
    Good luck with your spinach plants!

    • techie2mom said:

      Thank you πŸ™‚
      I hope that Airtel lives up to the expectation…
      Yeah, but time with mom just flied but i enjoyed πŸ™‚
