Back after a week

I am back after a whole week of sadhyas, travel, and lazy moments. The days were rainy, cool, and lovely. I loved the travels when it was raining. Since it was Onam, we had sadhyas on almost all the days.

I got to stay for two days at my home with my parents, brother, hubby, and Mittu. Got to see my cousin, Raji's daughter, granny, and few more of my relatives down in Kerala. Even got a chance to attend a wedding. That was perhaps the first wedding I attended after our marriage! I am always excited to attend a Keralite Hindu wedding. It will have lots of ladies in lovely silk sarees, lighted lamps, stage decorated with jasmine and rose flowers, a lot of relatives and friends to catch with, and finally a hastily eaten marriage sadhya. Hmm.. and as you guessed, I have put a few more kgs :-(

This time I felt a little bad at having to come back. On all previous visits to Kerala, I had to get a bit worried about the work accumulating as I enjoyed my holidays. But this time it was different. I had quit from Sasken. And hadn't joined HP yet. So I was completely relaxed. It was a tension free vacation.

But now that I am back to Bangalore and have to join HP tomorrow I am getting a bit tensed. New place and new people. Somehow I am a little nervous. Wish me luck...

New Beginning!

A lot of new things are happening in our lives now. We have shifted into a lovely house. It has lots of space, balcony, and a terrace with lots of plants. Mmmm.. do you remember how I had to leave my plants back at the old house? I was really sad then. So here I have some potted lovelies.

Here I can sit in the kitchen and blog (I mean it is not too a congested kitchen), can crochet sitting at the balcony or terrace, and do a lot more. It is a well ventilated and brightly lit house. Has two bedrooms upstairs (does that mean that climbing up and down will help me bring down my weight. I guess not ;-)) Well, I'll update you more on the house later.

I'll be joining my new company next Monday. This Thursday (19th August) was my last working day at Sasken. And something good happened. Re-instated some old lost friendships and left. Really felt good after doing that though I didn't take the initiative ;-) So have a week's gap to start afresh. We'll be traveling today to Kerala today evening to celebrate Onam.

And even hubby has got a new job. He'll joining the new company by mid September. So everything looks like starting new and good.

Looking forward to all good things to come our way and yours too! :-)

Monday News

Its almost 7 pm and I am still at office. Reason - Its raining! :-)

Now staying for some extra time has given me the freedom to browse through my evergrowing list of favourite blogs. And in peace. Almost all have left from the office and it is getting quieter around here.

And once the rains get over, we head home. An hour long journey! Phew! And I didn't tell you right - over the weekend we saw few houses and settled on the one for us for the next (maybe) few years. It is a lovelyyy house. We fell in love with it instantly. But sad part is that we can actually start living in there only by next month. Reason - we are travelling next weekend for Onam :-) So I ll keep you posted.

Seems like the rain is over. We need to head home. Bye for now! :-) Have a lovely evening.

A Week without a home

Its almost a week since we moved out from our old house. And we haven't moved into the new one yet. Reason: We didn't find one! One which we had finalised on, the current tenants took back their word of moving out by the last month end. Result: We end up being HOMELESS. But no, we are not wandering on the streets :-) Hubby's cousin and wife are here in Bangalore itself and they are the guys with whom we usually hang out over the weekends. So for the time being we have moved in there.

Their house is pretty far from our offices. Not too far, but the traffic is at its peak when we have to travel. Hubby has to log in exactly at 9:30 am and that means starting from home atleast an hour before that. That in turn means, waking up atleast an hour before that :-( This is the worst part. Its cool nowadays in the mornings and I don't feel like getting up. But I have to. My office timings are flexi and I used to enjoy it earlier. But nowadays I reach early and leave after almost everyone leaves. Sighhh! Yet, there is one thing I enjoy - travelling with hubby both the ways. Earlier, we used to go in two directions. But now we go the same way and its nice. :-)

We are searching for houses in the meantime and are eagerly waiting to move into a new good one.
