Doughnut December

Dear Hubby,

The very first day saw us cancel our scheduled trip to Tirupati due to an unscheduled event. We welcomed another member to our family on the first day of this month. I must admit, I have held 3 or 4 day old babies, but never had I held a 4 hour old baby. Imagine how delirious I must have been when the bright red lips parted to give me a tiny smile. Sometimes, certain circumstances change the course of our actions completely 🙂

Immediately after we returned, you fell sick, too sick. Your fever never came down even after 2 days and that is when I was thinking of cancelling my tickets, since all the ladies of the family were tending to the newborn faraway. Thankfully, just before the night I was supposed to depart your fever came down and even your voice was back to normal. I actually attribute to the fact that seeing the wife go away for a week would make any ill man all right.

As I had felt last June, this time too, when I returned, I felt you looked different. I think after 10 hours I felt you are a person whom I have been living since almost two years. Thank you for such a lovely dinner, I was ravenously hungry and so I finished your bowl of rice too. Pity you had to wait for a bit long after you made the second order.

The last week of December is always special, this year it was all the more special since my brother visited me for the first time. Your sister and niece followed soon after and every day was spent deciding what to do, what to eat and of course, where to go.

Neither you nor I had any inclination to go out somewhere to party, so unlike last year. It was fun calling up all our relatives when the clock struck 12, shouting to let ourselves get heard over the din which was clearly audible on the phone.

We had a good December. Wish India had a good December too 😐

  5. Wow Visha.. you held a 4 day old baby :surprise: 🙂 December did end very happily with your brother and SIL visiting.

    Same with you on ending happily for India too. 😦 😦 Thats a permanent scar!

  6. Have you tried the long chocolate doughnuts from Thoms bakery in Bangalore? They have a long legacy of their own. ( Insist on long ones and not the regular round ones.)

Would love to read your views :)
