Growing up!

Its 7 years and 400 posts, since I started on this journey of blogging !! Long time indeed. I had not thought that I would keep this going for so long. But thanks to memes such as ABC Wednesdays, I'm able to infuse some amount of life into it from time to time and keep... Continue Reading →

Book love :)

Yes.. here I am again talking about the kids' love for books and for reading! Isnt that wonderful 🙂 Their love for books has grown by leaps and bounds and it makes us brim with joy when we see them in love and content in the company of books!

The first half was filled with certain anxieties and a feeling of a need for change that was very compelling!! I had made peace with the anxieties and come... Continue Reading →

Just a thought…

Today one of my colleagues, my team mate in the previous project, came to say 'goodbye'. It is his last day in this organization...and as he spoke..telling of his next assignment/role...i could see that he was a bit teary...probably nostalgic, at the end of 2 years of his stay here.It reminded me of another colleague,...
