Really sorry--I have had to remove this post as it will soon appear in a book. Making it available online would have been very unfair to my publisher who has placed so much trust in me. I hope you enjoy the other posts as much as you enjoyed this one. A heartfelt thanks for your support and understanding.Thanks for continuing to read what I write.

  2. I'm also glad Y won for you!
    That's very true. I think most of the time N wins with me, I don't want it to win, but it tends to be stronger than Y for various sorts of reasons.
    But I'm trying to nurture Y and make it stronger :)

  3. Glad Y won this time!

    In my life, N was fed alot as a child who was constantly bullied at school. I have spent all of my life since leaving school building up the Y in me. Y? Because I am worth it!

  4. Today at the clothing store.. N was clearly the winner. I came home with nothing. Maybe N will push me into loosing some needed poundage?? BUt maybe Y will tell me otherwise. Only time will tell on this one.

  5. I wold definitely want Y to win....but I am not sure who will prevail at the end :)

  6. ah ofcourse,
    mr yes and mr no.

    for me its miss yes and miss no...
    or according to my preference..miss good and miss naughty.

    Y loves me, N loves me too. It is such a hassle keeping both of them happy you know.
    The Mr no you depicted here is a bit more mean than the one I got.

    am glad Y won for you.

    for me, its complicated..
    there isn't just miss good and miss evil.
    but there is also doctor love, socrate's wannabe, stuntman extraordinare, and quite recently, the writer...

    meaning, multiple people.. good, evil, lover, philosopher,daredevil and author.
    gotta keep em all happy...
    back to your post.

    bsically showing the duality of man..similar to Dr jekyll and Mr hyde.
    And true to that story, jekyll actually loved hyde...he loved his nature, but hated the fact that he hurts others in the process, so like a fool he killed himself, and hyde in the process...if only he had realised, that he should listen to hyde at times, but keep the beast in control

    I can't ignore miss naughty for long, she just shows up suddenly wearing leather demanding that I play some prank. Regardless the consequences. She gets into a catfight with Ms good, and usually wins.

    one thing I don't get though, you mentioned N critizes you... no no..that is not n...that is your G..meaning Guilt.

    am a little disheartened though...
    you wrote my post..I was working on a similar one.. with a lot more people than just Y and N...now will have to take some time before I post..else it will seem too obvious.

  7. I love the illo with this entry? Is it your work?
    I, like Bob-Kat, dealt with a lot of bullying at school and a lot of abuse at home. Mr. N was my life-long companion and I am just now learning to tell him to sod off.
    On the days I succeed I feel so much lighter and so free.
    I think one of the hardest things for some of us to do is find value in ourselves.

Daughters are so special. Post 3

Hello dear friend :)

This is my third post in this blog marathon. Those of you who are  here because of my Instagram post do hit subscribe that you see on top of this page, and you will receive my posts in your inbox.


Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.



Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)

I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…

A quick and easy DIY for clearing charger clutter. Post 4

Hello!

How are you doing today?

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life,  do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I did today.



Neat, isn't it?

It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.



Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.



Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.


Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.




And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.


Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.


I was mighty pleased with it. :)

A few books I LOVED reading this year. Post 13

Hello there,

It has been twelve whole days since I started my blog marathon. Time has sped by so fast. In fact, the whole year has sped by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing my 'reading wall' which I do a the start of the year. I started this two years ago.
If you want to know what a reading wall is, clickHERE.

It's basically a list of books that I read the entire year.

Many of you have been asking me to recommend the 'best books'. I am reluctant to do so, because tastes vary. It is like  person asking me to  recommend what they should eat. The recommendation would  depend on whether they like South-Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese , Singaporean or any other specific cuisine. It would be meaningless to recommend Idlis to someone  who hates South Indian food.

This is the reason I do not recommend books. My tastes tend to be eclectic. What is outstanding for me might me egregious for you. So, unless I know the person very well, I …
