The Week That Was: Week 22

“Hi, Five year old wife” was Che’s opening statement today. Yep, it’s our anniversary. We’ve survived five years, it’s a milestone! I can’t believe it, it doesn’t feel like five years most days and sometimes it feels like forever.

But all said and done, if the past five years are a taster of what’s coming, and I had a chance to do it all over, I’ll choose Che every time. 😀

So much has happened in the last five years, we started to full time freelance (and yet manage to pay bills!), we’ve moved from a flat to a two storied house with a garden, made love uncountable times and had BIG fights an equal number of times, enlarged our family to we two, ours six (dogs, that is), travelled alone, together, national, International, … It’s a long list of memories that make me smile as I think of them today.

It’s been a good five years.We celebrated with food! :)



I can feel myself getting into the groove of things, albeit slowly. This week I talked about sleeping with the dogs , my experience of Kaziranga National Park  – the first part, and my thoughts of Twitter.

I also shared some of the old Hindi Movies I watched. If you are into that sort of thing, I’ve posted the links to the movies in Youtube too.



I didn’t read as much this week. There were too many things happening but I did read and reviewed Choked by Bharath Sarma Rejeti.

Phew! Finally I’ve started with my last Perry Mason – The Case of the Phantom Fortune. It’s inbetween in the series as I had to order it when I found it missing in the set and it finally arrived just yesterday.


Here and There

Michele over at Angels Bark shared her thoughts on a quote and got me thinking too – “Choose being kind over being right, and you’ll be right every time”. I enjoy reading Bernie’s posts on her day to day life, she has in splits constantly, you should check out her latest on Cousin Connie the Cougar!

Kari who’s on a mission to travel the world talked about Traveller’s Remorse. Have you ever experienced choosing between what you should do and what you want to do?



A lot of what I sowed last week is sprouting. It’s a joy to watch the little leaves shoot out. I’ve got my fingers crossed for survivors, they are so delicate at this point.

I need to get the planting beds ready next week so it can sit and settle for a bit before the transplant.


Health and Fitness

This area has been in bad shape. We slipped up and dropped off on our swimming challenge. As always, life caught up. I really need to fix this.

I also need to fix my stomach, which has been giving me hell this week. I’ve had 4 disturbed nights due to extreme pain. I didn’t ever think gas could be this painful!



This week started out hectic with me and Mom shutting up and down the city getting our flat painted and ready for the next tenant. Its was quite a cleaning job, but we got it done! 😀

Then there was the pretty sarong Anitra get me from her road trip across Sri Lanka. Isn’t it lovely! Another one for my lungi collection. 😉

I came across these pretty caterpillar. They fascinate me with their colours, shapes and designs.

I think I’ve saved the best for last. But these chocolate bars are addictive and crazy heavy on the calories. We couldn’t stop with one. Well, it’s finally over. :(

So, that was my week. What have you been upto?
