Home sweet home




 Finally, after a long and hectic journey, I am back home. I woke up at 4.30 am this morning, and I am resting only now.

One the flight back home, I finished an entire novel. I also met the staff at Relay bookstore at terminal 1, and signed a lot of copies of A Hundred Little Flames.
You can see pictures and videos on my Instagram. in the stories .


All I can say for today, is I am exhausted, but relieved too , to be back.

Home Sweet home!

I love the peace and quiet in my home, the comfort of familiar surroundings, the atmosphere, the decor, the tranquility, the art scattered all over my home, the books and each thing in my room, that contains a hundred memories.

You? What do you love about your home?  Tell me in my comment box!

  1. Beautifully done corner , Preeti! I always admire how maintained your home looks in all the pics that you share.

    I love the memories attached to all the things that my husband and I bought together to make the rented house our home.

  8. Yes, I too was away from home for three weeks. I traveled to Dubai to be with my daughter Lekshmi and Midhun . My daughter is on the family way and I went there to bring her home at Trivandrum, Kerala, South India. My stay at Dubai was really enjoyable . But when I returned home with my daughter on February 10th , I had the same feeling HOME, SWEET HOME.

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…
