My Home...

One of my favourite Oprah shows used to be the home make over stories, I  loved watching how they would tear down a place (which wasn't really that bad to begin with) and turn it into something stunning with gorgeous furniture and luxurious drapes. I think anything can look better if you just drape some flowy rich material somewhere near it. I remember Nate Berkus was in charge of the home makeovers on Oprah and he sure knew how to spruce up a place... I liked his blend of earthy and neutral tones, it lent a great deal of elegance and grace to the place. Wonder why they don't air Oprah these days... anyway, I just thought of giving you a glimpse into my home... 

Here's the living room and I love the way sunshine floods into it...

The rest of the living room... 

My own little space... my bedroom (check out the framed picture, its the same as my blogger header and the other is a picture of my home town).

My charming little kitchen...

The poster in my kitchen...

As soon as I saw this, I knew I had to buy it... was reading it in the shop and laughing away, its a list of things you've learned from FRIENDS, like 'Always say the right name at the altar' or 'If stung by a jellyfish, pee on it' or 'Only in prison do they CUP whilst measuring for pants' or 'Throwing your own wake is not a good way to meet women'.

So what do you think...

Now someone is quite proud of showing their home. Hmmmm. Loved your place. The new look of your blog is so very refreshing and new. Liked it as well. The B & W bedspread is so very lovely. Shall I drop in someday, dear Karen?

Joy always,
Susan

P. S: You should have also shown the place where you sit and write blog posts.

Oh Susan, you can drop in anytime though don't be surprised if the pictures don't match... the house isn't usually this clean and the pictures here are taken from two homes (the one I grew up in and the one I live in now). And in the bedroom picture, you see a little table by the side with a laptop on it, that's where I am sitting right now and typing this.

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…
