Zini, me & life in general

What made me happy!!!

Last week I was feeling low but then i realized that there are lots of things that made me happy also.. So i decided to concentrate on happy memories and here is the post….

My parents are here!!! Yes, finally my papa too made it…Though technically they are not here as of now, as they have gone to Delhousie. but they came here, stayed for 3 days and will be coming back here from Delhousie and will be spending a week here, Yaaay!!!! This itself deserves a post….

We visited a resort called Moksha at a small hillstation in Himachal Pradesh!!! It was AWESOME!!!! I think i’ll do a detailed post on that, if not for anything else then for the swimming pool they have…
But visiting Moksha meant that we weren’t around on the weekend hence I missed meeting Smita ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ย but we talked on phone. And had a delightful conversation!!! It didn’t feel that we were talking for the 1st time…We talked (complained about) our respective kids ๐Ÿ™‚ about our life, Smita’s recent travels!!! Naively i had thought that Gaziabad is a small place like Noida, and i would be able to reach there within minutes. but after talking to Smita i realized that was not the case!! Had to go Jamuna paar to reach her place and i couldn’t make it to her place ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Zini started going to a new school!!! And she is pretty much settled there…Touch wood… This too is a play school but, the school has the classes upto 12th standard. So from play school Zini will graduate to Nursery and then to 1st Standard in the same school!! Phew…That’s one biiiiiiiiig worry taken care of… Also going to this school means that she spends a little longer time in commute, hence ย i get an extra hour and i am enjoying that extra hour!!!! I know i am a wicked mom ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now because i get an extra hour, i had to take advantage of it!! So my friends and i watched movie!!! So much of fun!! No Zini and lots of popcorn, pepsi and nachos…Yummm!! We watched Nautanki Saala BTW…It was ok, but hey who cares about how was it?! It was a movie and i watched it without anybody shouting my name, or pulling my sleeves or sleeping in my lap!!! That’s great…Don’t you think so?!?

It has been raining awards for me!!! 1st Sonali, Nilu, Reni and Pritivery kindly sharedย Liebster Blog Award with me (I’ll do the post soon I just did the award post)!!!

And now, a kind member of BlogAdda team thinks that I am a Notable Newbie!!!

So yes, my profile is featured as Notable Newbie onย BlogAdda, Thanks a lot!!! Check it out people…Isn’t it cool?!?! Well i don’t like the word housewife and i don’t do a lot of chores (if you will visit my home, you will know ๐Ÿ™‚ ) but we will let it pass….Coz i am happy!!!ย  BlogAdda has very kindly updated the page as per my request, Thanks again, I am happier ๐Ÿ™‚

i started with a sole purpose of recording Zini’s antics… But then i started torturing you guys with my random thoughts and other tales also ๐Ÿ˜‰ !!! And then i becameย adventurousย enough to start a new blog – A Food blog – to recordย My Cooking Adventures!!!

Thanks a lot for sticking around andย encouragingย me with your comments and visits!!!

And in true awardย ceremonyย style i would also like to thank my family and friends, especially my hubby (who is looking after Zini right now, so that i can do this post ;)) and my cousin Jigar – these 2 people encouraged me to start blogging…And of course Zini – without her antics life would be boring and i wouldn’t have started the blog in 1st place…My parents who encouraged me to read (and as a byproduct i started writing – i actually wrote a story about a lostย pigeonย when i was in 4th standard – only my parents and my friends read it)!!! And my friends, who read my blog and encouraged me to continue!!!

I think i’ll stop my Oscar speech now and show off my new and shiny Notable Newbie Award :)!!!

My Notable Newbie Badge!!!

My Notable Newbie Badge!!!

  9. Congrats! I a,m dying to watch Nautanki saala but it’s not playing anywhere anymore ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Also, school worries are BIG on my head now. We just decided on Zo’s play school for the next year, but after that it’s big school time and that is tough ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Enjoy your time with the parents, but do your Moksha post! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
      Hmmm..But even if you decide to watch it on the TV it won’t make much difference.. Though i must say it’s much much better than Mein Prem ki diwani hu ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I know, that school admission tension!! It’s the same here, hence we heard about this school, we just rushed in.. Thank God it worked out…And Zini too is loving her new school…All the best for the school admissions…
