Winni and Jap (blog marathon post 17)

Can you guess what this is?



  It is a birth certificate. :-)

Do you know whose?


It is Jap's. Did I hear you ask Jap who?

Well, meet Winnie and Jap. They live in my children's room.

Jap was created at Build a bear workshop where children can create their own bear. He shares a birthday with my son :-)  He even has a heart inside which both my children kissed before they put it in and created him.

Winnie has a large heart but he  does not have a birth certificate . Everyone knows A.A.Milne created him :-)

Yesterday after the children left for school, I found Jap and Winnie neatly tucked into a bed which my daughter had created using her old t-shirt, her toy crate and her favourite fleece blaket. I smiled and meant to ask her about it but  I forgot.
I remembered only three days later and they were still in bed, neatly tucked.

"Oh my God!  Look at this.Aren't you going to wake Jap and Winnie ? They have been sleeping for three days. What is this? Wake them up now. They have slept enough." I playfully told my daughter.

"Maaa" she said in a slightly amused tone, "Don't you know bears hibernate? They can sleep for months."  When did my little girl become  little  miss smarty pants? I had never noticed.

I am still smiling :-)

    Books: First time on my blog.Welcome! :) Thanks :)

    Dhanya: Oh--they have different 'outers' which child can choose..Then they help them fill it and personalise it. Final stitching etc is done by machines only :) But you dee it being created in front of your eyes and you can decide how hard, how soft, you can kiss the heart which goes inside, give it a voice etc :) Most kids love to do this. Secretly I also do :P

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…

Right on top?) to get my posts right in your, inbox.
