A special relationship and a birthday wish.

She called me up this morning at around 5.45 a.m. I had been fast asleep and my hand reluctantly reached out from under the blanket to answer her call. Groggy eyed, I picked up the phone and tip-toed out of the bedroom, so that I don't wake Satish, my brain still pounding under the confusion of being suddenly woken up, my mind suspended in that half-dazed state between sleep and wakefulness.

'Good morning Preeti,'  she said.

'Hey--all okay?' I asked.

'Wish me first, It is my birthday,' she said.

'Idiot--did you wake me up for that? I would have wished you later. I was fast asleep.'

'So what? That's okay if i woke you,'

I smiled  and wished her.

And we spoke for a good 35 minutes.

And that was just the first phone call. Later there were many more phone calls to each other.

Apart from the whatsapp chats.

'Hey, Do you realise something?' I told her, a little while ago.

'What?' she asked.

'We're in a relationship,' I said.

'What?! ' she asked.

' We're sisters.' I said.

And she smiled.

It was the truth. 


 I do not know what I would have done without her. She is one of my closest friends and it is a friendship of more than 11 years. She is one of my biggest well-wishers and sometimes, I trust her much more than I trust my own self :)

She is an entrepreneur, a mom, a business woman--completely self-made and very successful. She is someone I truly admire.  ( I plan to write about her someday.)

Happy birthday Priya. 
I love you loads and feel so blessed to have you in my life.

  1. Hi Ma'am,
    It is true that we are incomplete without our friends.And friends are the best reason to celebrate our beautiful lives.They fill our lives with true love .They are someone who we can rely upon.They can either be the members of family ,peers,classmates,etc.True friend is one's alter ego.They share a proper rapport despite any difficult circumstances.The bond grows stronger with age,a rare exception to the law of time.True friends are difficult to find these days but there is always a flickering light of hope which has enough love and shine to radiate through clouds no matter how dense or dark they are.Friendship is indeed the God's blessing.

  4. Ahhaa.. I can very well connect to this post Preeti. My friend last year called me at 12am and asked me to wish her ♥ Girl friends are indeed soul sisters. I would always say her, "God made us best friends because he knew our parents couldn't handle us as sisters. " ;-)

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 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 …

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. :)

Like it? Tell me in comments.
