Anniversaries galore

This month....

My SIL's Inlaws celebrated their 50th anniversary...we had great fun at the party.

My Inlaws celebrated their 43rd anniversary...it was a family get together at a hotel for lunch.

My Parents celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary this sunday....

I did have plans to give them a good relaxing holiday but God had other plans.....

My Acha fell ill this Monday and is advised bed rest for the next 15 days :(

So this is what I did

I rented out a few DVD's of good Malayalam movies and took it home yesterday ...told them it was meant to be a surprise but thought of checking the DVD player which was dormant all its life and just as I thought the player had picture but no color or sound....So today I went to a service center and fixed it.Now they can start celebrating 2 days in advance :)

And we have earthquakes happening off and on in our seventh year of togetherness....M and I have a very very long way to go......God you have a lot of homework to do :)

PS.I know my Acha and Amma deserve more than jus a couple of rented DVDs.Would give them my life ...But I guess this is better than the unused,chipped and termite infested carom board I got them last anniversary hehehehehe

On a Summer Holiday

We're all going on a summer holiday.
No more working for a week or two.
Fun and laughter on a summer holiday.
No more worries for me and you.
For a week or two.

We're going where the sun shines brightly.
We're going where the sea is blue.
We've seen it in the movies.
Now let's see if it's true.

Everybody has a summer holiday
Doing things they always wanted to.
So we're going on a summer holiday
To make our dreams come true
For me and you.

We're going where the sun shines brightly.

So we're going on a summer holiday
To make our dreams come true
For me and you.
Hmmmmmm, hmmmmmmm...
Hmmmmmm, hmmmmmmm...
Hmmmmmm, hmmmmmmm...

A Cuppa Tea

Can a woman...yes I said A woman get up from her office seat, walk down the stairs, cross the road, to the bunk kadai (the small tea stall) and drink a cuppa tea with a biscuit without being stared at??????????

No.

I didn't try....and I don't have the guts to...but love to do that.

Maybe at a restaurant or a cafe it would be fine ...now that's a slight relief ...since 10 years ago even that wouldn't  go unnoticed.....

PS. The pains of being a South Indian Woman?
