4 Years of Blogging

31/12/2008 was the day i started my blog. Till then i was not aware that i too can write and will be appreciated by my readers. Before blogging i am not able to express myself, the best last thing i used to do was scribble on a paper my emotions and tear that off after few days. My schoolmate introduced me to blogging as all my readers and friends knew about it as i keep on mentioning about him.

Thanks to all my friends,readers and people who follow my blog. Your appreciation and kind words made me to complete 4 years of blogging.

Learnt a lot through reading you all my friends. Some post of yours have changed me as a person, made me sensitive towards others, encouraged me, made me smile, made me laugh, made me cry, made me appreciate small things in life, started liking dogs and cats and many things which i am not able to express in words.

Love you all and super tight hugs to be there for me…..

Thank you all for taking time to read what i wrote,hugssss 🙂

Short and Sweet

Most of you will agree with me that we get bored of doing the same stuff day in day out.I got bored of doing the routine chores of the house,getting up early,sleeping late,eating the food cooked by me,etc…

Without much planning went to hyderabad for just 14 days.It was surprise to my mom and sister.Just before boarding the flight called up and told them i am coming.They didn’t believe that we are coming and mom thought i am coming to hyd with some health problems.She got assured when she saw me healthy with few extra pounds.Kids were so happy when they saw their granny.They both hugged her and kissed her.

Younger sister and mom were at home to receive us and elder sister came home early in the morning.Even now i am feeling i am at hyderabad,i really miss my home,my mom and my sisters.

Varunavi got a parcel from crafty.When we opened the parcel i was short of words,crafty has send us many crochet things.Varunavi told crafty that this is the first time she got courier and she is always carrying pinkoo with her,even now she has pinkoo sleeping next to her.Who ever visited us she showed the goodies and told them that her net aunty gave her.Love to crafty aunty and hugs (varunavi said this).

First day in hyderabad i met swaram and kanagu.Swaram i was planning to see when i visit hyderabad but meeting kanagu was a pleasant surprise.He was there in hyderabad.Was not able to spend much time with them as kanagu has to catch his train.I was not sure whether he will reach the station on time,luckily train was late.

Talking to swaram i never felt i am talking to her for the first time or seeing her for the first time.We have known each other since few months but i felt i know her since ages.Kanagu is sweet and calm,it was me and swaram who did the talking.It was really wonderful to meet swaram and kanagu.Hugssssss

Spoke to my dhiren.Even with him I never felt I was talking to a stranger.

Only thing i felt bad about my trip was my mom.I disturbed her routine.I didn’t do a single work at hyderabad,the only thing i did was sleep.Papam my mom did everything including feeding the kids.Now she says she doesn’t want to live there as she hears pinkuda’s laugh and varunavi calling her ammamma(granny).

It always happens that i cry at the airport and this time i controlled my tears.The crying part was done by varunavi and pinkuda.Varunavi was holding my mom and telling me you go amma,i will stay with ammamma(granny),we can’t live her alone.Mom promised her that she will come and stay with us.

31st December 2008 i started my blog,I can’t believe i have blogged for a year already !.It’s been an amazing year got to know so many wonderful people/writers and who are my friends now.

I am really grateful to you all who visit my blog,read and comment.Your comments are like a back bone to my blog,without your comments I don’t think I would have completed a year of blogging.

PS:-This post I wanted to write since 15th and at last did summary of the events since 31st december.
