Missing you.


I miss you when I wake up in the morning, and instinctively reach out to your side of the bed, to ruffle your hair.

I miss you when I go into the kitchen and make two cups of coffee, without thinking, and then remember you are gone.

I miss you when I lay the table for breakfast and lay a place for you, and then remember you are away.

I miss you when I iron the kids school uniforms, because you usually do it for me.

I miss you when I login to Orkut, because you usually say “please leave it on for me.”

I miss you when the kids leave for school, because you usually hug them, and whisper a ‘magic mantra’ in their ears, so that they have a good day.

I miss you when I read the newspaper, because there would usually be a story that I would want to share with you.

I miss you when I pick up the phone to call you, and I realize that you are in a different time zone, it is still night for you and you will be asleep.

I miss you when I have my lunch, because I know how much you would have enjoyed what I cooked.

I miss you when the children come back from school, because I usually would have called you up, to narrate in detail, what they did.

I miss you in the evenings,because there is no fourth person to complete the teams, to play “Trivial pursuit”.

I miss you when we have dinner, because there is no one to narrate funny stories and make us laugh.

I miss you when I read to the children, because you usually listen to it too.

I miss you when I go to bed even though the children are happy that they can have mummy all to themselves and cuddle up next to me, each on one side.

But most of all I miss you so much, simply because I love you.

More than you will ever know.

  1. My Darling, You have said how you miss me in quite a few ways. However I miss you in a million, trillion, bullion ways every nano second and every minute when I am away from you. I miss you when I am in Pune, but in office. I miss everything about you and when I see another family close by, miss you even more and feel jealous that I am not with you. You are a special person and mean the world to me. The only good thing I guess of being apart is the fact that we grow even closer each day. I cannot have asked for a better partner, person or friend with whom I would have liked to have spent the rest of my life with. Just another 24 hours and I am back home to eat your head. I adore you and care for you. Love ya loads.....

  5. My hubby does the ironing too! *grin*

    Isn't it grand to be in love with someone that brings you such joy... even in the simplest means. I am so happy that you have that. But, of course, sorry that you must be apart. I hope he's back to uh, 'eat your head' soon.

    Um... Hey. That doesn't hurt, does it? *chuckle*

    By the by--Your kids (snuggling with mummy)... that made me smile so wide. My kids are so very much the same way with me. They love the opportunity to have mommy all to themselves. :)

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…
