The best bits of December

Today's post is a photo post. This is a picture of me clicked with both my children (who are not really children anymore) on my birthday which was three days ago. My children are in college overseas, and hence when they are home, the family time is always special. We play games like Pictionary, Dumb Charades and Monopoly cards. We also spend a lot of time with each other. The pets of the family --hero, the Hamster and Lostris the doberman are very happy too as they have two extra people to pamper them.

For me some of the best bits of December are my birthday, christmas, family time, the cold winter air, the warmth in everyone's hearts (okay, most people's!)

What are the best bits of December for you? What do you look forward to?

Tell me in comments.

More tomorrow!

    spending time with family is indeed the best moment of life, and you all are looking so lovely!

  2. Of course, with dear and near we feel highly delighted. If the family is full, the delight doubles. Your hubby might have clicked the picture.

  3. Every month is pretty much the same for me. My work and home routine are quite monotonous. The only thing I look forward to in the month of December is meeting relatives/friends who would be visiting their Hometown during Christmas Vacation, Wedding Season, or just to take a break from their normal routine. The photo of you with your children is very precious. Enjoy each and every moment with them when they are here. I loved to play Monopoly, Clue, and Pictionary when I was a kid. Take care!

  4. My husbands birthday. He really makes mine very special, so I start planning about it days ahead or even months. I love to see his reaction. Then with all the holidays this month is definitely special for me.

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

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.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
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 …
