As I mentioned here, we are shifting from the house where we are staying now. Now we stay in one of the best locations of Koramangala with easy access to the Ring Road, Malls, and everything. But we have decided to shift. The reason - I am planning a change in my career or rather the firm. The new firm is a bit far from our current place. So we have decided upon a spot equidistant for both of us. And finally we are SHIFTING!
It was not too long back when we started staying at this house. It was right after our marriage. So we have stayed here for only 6 months. And that was a too short period of stay. This was a house both me and hubby chose together and moved in. It was the place we started our married lives to be specific. So we do have a special kind of attachement to it. Though there were a lot of not so good factors of the house like old fixtures, shabby exterior paints, and some windows which do not close properly, we love the house extremely. The foremost reason being that it is our FIRST place of stay together in Bangalore. Then, we spent a lot of time together in the company of each other, being with family and friends. Mittu loved the balconies of the house and I loved how the rooms were always lit up by natural lighting. My first experiments in gardening begin here; I believe I started crocheting well here (thanks to hubby's support); and a lot more things began here. I hand sewed curtains for some windows, upholstered our dining chair set, cooked, cleaned, washed (these three things go with me everywhere :-)), and did a lot to make this house our small home.
It was going on fine when one day suddenly we realized we had to shift. It was not heart-breaking or that sad a thing then. But now as days near by, we do have a little bit of sorrow somewhere down the deep corner. And yes, I know, this is part of life.
So, this weekend, we bid farewell to our first house in Bangalore and take off into a brighter future. The house will be really missed for sure :-)
