An alphabet Meme

This is a meme from Sunday stealing  which I found interesting enough to do. Most memes are the same stuff that one seems to have done a countless time, if one has been blogging for a few years (which I have. I started this blog in October 2006!)
This one is an alphabet meme  which is the first alphabet meme of 2011.  I have tried to include lots of pictures to make it interesting :)

Here goes:


A is for Age:  



B is for Beer of choice: 

Vodka :P I don't drink Beer :)

C is for Career:
Writer and Artist

D is for favourite Drink:
 
Same as B :)

E is for Essential item you use everyday:  

My  custom made  powered sunglasses. (I have sensitive eyes--they eater easily :-))



F is for Favourite song at the moment:  



G is for favourite Game:








H is for Home town:



I don't really have a 'hometown'. (have never lived in a place for more than three consecutive years) I'm a true Indian.



I is for Instruments you play:


Learnt to play a few tunes on the Keyboard but cannot claim to 'play an instrument'

J is for favourite Juice:


Don't like juices much. Too sweet for me. :P :)

K is for Kids:
Two darlings (well most of the time :-))

L is for Last kiss:
A little while ago from my daughter.

M is for marriage: .

I complete SIXTEEN years of being married (to the same guy  heh heh) this year.

N is for full Name:

Once for typhoid was hospitalised 17 days and twice for my deliveries of both children.

P is for phobias:
Snakes--I am petrified of them.

Q is for quote:

 
R is for biggest Regret:

For saying some stupid things which seemed terribly important at that time. It truly does not matter now. Wish I could take them back, but they have been said. The spoken word once uttered never can be taken back. It was a big lesson I learnt, in controlling my acerbic tongue.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.

This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
