Mein Jyaada nahi maangti!!

Since my childhood I was sure in what kind of home I would like to spend my life!!

I always wanted my dream home to have a lot Hinchka (Jhoola/ Swings)!! And no, the regular Wooden or Metal hinchkas won’t do. They had to be paatiwala hinchka (they feel more like hammock) where I could sleep, eat and read!! And yes, it has to be situated near a river.

I also wanted to have a big garden with lots of mango trees of my own!! So that I can have loads and loads of mango in the season!! And also a swing under mango tree for those lazy summer afternoons, where I can read and sleep and listen to flowing water!!

As I grew up, more and more features started getting added to my dream home!! I didn’t want a big palatial home!! A home where everybody had their own space would be just fine!! But it had to be airy and well lit but not hot!! It has to have kind of laid back feeling to it!! So that you feel that you are on a permanent holiday!!

It also has to have a decent sized backyard where we can have a kitchen garden, preferably with a swing!!

And of course this home has to have a well stocked library once again with a swing where I would read my books lying down!!

Now that I have been bitten by baking and cooking bug, I would also prefer a big sunlit kitchen with a biiiig pantry to store all the exotic ingredients!! A built in oven in a modular kitchen would be just perfect!!

The home should be cool and shady in summers and warm in winters!! Probably I would also want a fireplace in living room!!

And no zatak colours for my home!! Subtle, pastel colours will be great on walls and the furniture has to feel like real wood!! And as I am a lazy ass, I would like Asian Paints guys to come over, move the furniture and my beloved swings, colour the rooms, restore everything including my beloved swings!! Thank you 🙂

You see, Mein Jyaada nahi maangti 🙂

So what’s your dream home like?

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 🙂

Bye Bye 6 years

Dear A, It feels like yesterday when we met!!! But we have 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 my crankiness (which attacks whenever Zini throws a tantrum 😉 )

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 🙂

I also enjoyed some of my favourite mom-made food 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂
