Old Monk, Pictionary, friends… & a Happy New Year!

2010 was a totally brilliant for many reasons that are already up on the blog.. I started the new year with someone who is nothing less than special, who has a brilliant sense of humour ( which even after a year has not yet rubbed on me), made peace with people who I needed to and started living life on a completely different mode altogether. Each passing day brought with it some excitement, a new thing discovered about self, about the husband, new additions to the house, travelled, got a hike and learnt that you need to take the learning’s that life offers everyday into your stride.. 🙂

Through this journey of juggling my 9-7 job, a husband, self and many other things I made friends with the husband’s ever entertaining bunch of friend’s with whom there is never a dull moment. A bunch of crazy people, who love their music, food, travelling, photography, their crazy ass cocktails( sane ones and insane ones), Old Monk, Bloody Mary’s, Thumbs up ( mentioned on special request ), and most importantly they never let go off an opportunity to pull each other’s leg! 😀

They all get along like a house on fire, every get together there is a new story and then there is a repeat of the old stories for the new members … this is where me and D come into the picture…I am married to the lead vocalist of the band and D to the bassist and that leaves BB the long-standing and the only fan to be married soon to the new addition to the gang 🙂

A unique mix each of them put them altogether they are nothing short of the headiest cocktail you could get. So you probably would have gotten the drift of how my new year would have been there was loads of laughter, conversations, who is to marry next and what kinda girl should they marry ( highly controversial topic ) 😉 & various rounds of dumb charades & Pictionary with weird drawings where the opposite team instead of looking into what their own team member was drawing kept looking into ours (when it was All Play rounds) and eventually ended up guessing the wrong word coz my dear hubby misread the word! 😛

In between all this there was an irate neighbor who thought we were pounding on the floor and requested us not to, a huge stuffed toy froggie who was manhandled by almost everyone, a lost & then found wallet and lastly a car that broke down twice that were highlights of the day 🙂
It was my first new year away from home where I was out partying… instead of a quiet a day at home looking back on the year. This year I broke away from tradition partied hard, had hardly any money in my wallet except for a few foreign currencies and had two of the best nights in my life!

So here’s to all of you a part of my hubby darling’s extended family…have a wonderful new year and may we have enough good luck, get together’s and happiness all of these which never run out!

a few of my favorite things….

Been a dull weekend…just up and about & almost back to my normal self after the wretched fever only today..
.set the house in order with help from the husband and realized after nearly 8 months in the house that my most favorite place is the dining table =)
yes my size definitely shows for the reason of liking..but that apart the corner’s cozy.. love the view of the window of the mango tree even more pretty after a shower and the best of it all is in the evening with the soft glow from our home-made lamp shade..ah so lovely!!

No reason for this particular post.. this has been buzzing inside my head and after a down pour just a while back fits perfect. good weekend and enjoy!!~ 🙂

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad
