Observations today


That’s the word kids say instead of Sorry in school these days. Moo taught me. Classic example of things I want my kid at school to learn vs things my kid actually picks up at school.


I spent 8 hours alone today working from home. Zack was at work, Moo at school and then after school care and baby Boo at childcare. It felt weird to have the house all to myself without any needing or shouting for me. And weirder to have lunch alone. I am usually very comfortable doing things on my own but I guess constant presence of a fellow human has robbed me of that comfort. I finished my lunch watching movie trailers on my laptop and got back to work.


I never try reusing anything I cooked earlier in a different recipe. But that never can’t be used ever again. I remade toasted paneer into paneer cutlets. I want to try making falafel from leftover chana masala now.


The cold is starting to get to my feet. I have to start wearing woollen socks because the house slippers are not keeping me warm enough. I am on my feet early in the morning when it is freezing. In the list of (many) renovations our home needs, first is the necessity of adding a heater to the bathroom.

Admiration series – 4

Truly admire the people who have a creative streak in party decorations. How they make simple spaces look so beautiful and chic, with the bare minimum items. My neighbour in previous home used to decorate the wall with only paper and balloons, but each event would have a different design and it would look effortless. It’s two more sleeps until Baby Boo’s first birthday and I have been searching for wall decor inspiration since the last half hour, with no image jumping out at me saying – this is doable, let’s do this. Either I am too challenged, or I feel it’s too much of work, I would vote for the former at any point of time.

I have texted one of our friends who is very good in decorating with some of the Internet images I liked. She said it looked good but too simple. She is coming tomorrow evening to ‘work’ on the walls. She has a baby who is eight weeks younger than Boo. So it’s going to be child proof party decor tomorrow 🤭😅

Power napping brb

I realised I dozed off for a solid 60 minutes while putting Boo to bed before getting up with a start. I meant to write about the birthday party today and how an epic Day of mistakes it was. Will have to wait tomorrow. Sleep beckons.

Hope you all had a good weekend 🙂
