Of goodbyes

Within a span of one week two of my colleagues have left the project. One of them has resigned to shift to UK. The other, is my manager, the boss who promised me better rating this year at least. So much for trusting.. Hmmmpphhhh..

The other friend, a senior to me, had joined just after I joined our project. We have been pretty close sharing secrets, family stories and of course food. She was more of a sister and I’m terribly missing her next to me. 

Two different people.. Two different perspectives about how they left and what they’ve left behind. Sigh!!

Sarcastically happy

* Even though your mixie has died on you, managing to prepare a last minute masala dal kichdi for lunch

* Rushing to office while the hair’s still wet and the car breaks down and you have to take an auto and Yayyy the hair s super dry by the time you reach to work.

* On the way to office, you stop by at the tailor’s because she’s calling you for measurements since a week and there you find you’ve gained weight as she notes that last month’s measurements do not match today’s. So the new dress will fit perfectly to the new ehmmmm you! 

* Thinking to yourself that your time isn’t good right now and taking a look at the wrist watch that was gifted by the husband back during college and double check it only to find, it has stopped ticking. So no more thinking about bad times, yo! 

* On the way back, stuck in traffic for more than an hour, counting your blessings and contemplating how lucky you are, because thank God the traffic has reduced the number of hours you will be alone home waiting for the husband to reach.

The week can’t get any better πŸ™‚ 

Absent mindedΒ 

I didn’t know it was Tuesday  yesterday. I didn’t know it until today and that’s why I had written a Wordless Wednesday post on a Tuesday. πŸ˜• 

Have you heard this lyrics from Minnale movie? 

Naatkal neeludhe, nee engo ponadhum… *

(* – days are longer since you’ve been gone)

I’m exactly in that state.. But my husband hasn’t gone anywhere, we’re in the same house, only not at the same time. While I’m in morning shift, he is doing night shift. He leaves by 4pm and I reach home by 6pm. 

After 4 years of long distance relationship, this past year was God given to me. We’ve never ever spent a single day apart.. And now it’s like hell. I talk to a sleepy B before leaving to office and he talks to a sleepy me when he returns back at 2am. I was desperately hoping it was Wednesday yesterday and thinking there was just two more days to go for the weekend. 

This has been a horrible week for me. I don’t  want to rant here, but off late I’m doing only that.. I feel weak, which is partly because I’m sick but also because I miss the male species of the house. 

Someone who is always talking nonsense, 

Who is always pulling me, nagging me to watch this n that on YouTube

who talks cricket walks cricket, lives cricket and makes my ears ache because of all those cricket trivia

who Doesn’t mind what I cook, whether I cook.. 

who is with me , no matter what

who doesn’t just cry for me but also cries along with me

You, yes, You … You are being terribly missed and I really really hope you get to join that stupid big ass company which hasn’t sent your joining letter yet and leave this bpo job and be with me, all the time.. 😭

Day 29: Mageirocophobia

Ok no need to run away on looking at the title, people !! I was randomly checking pictures when I came across this word – means

An intense fear to cook

I think I got this phobia because of too many kitchen disasters. And also my dad. Whenever mom is out of station or had to rush somewhere that she couldn’t cook, Pa comes in. He cooks n never makes me lift a finger 😍😘 He would turn down my offer for help and ask me to watch or leave the kitchen. At least I should have watched him 😞 and learnt something.

But right now, I’m slowly trying to cook succeed sometimes, or make something that’s too bad to eat or manage to pass in the border.
So yesterday I made dal-greens masiyal and it came out pretty good! I couldn’t believe myself, although it’s a very simple dish.. Huh, I’m fighting my demon.. yay to me!!

Day 21: Wordless Wednesdays

2015/01/img_1224.jpg

What are WWs for, if not to save you from not having anything to post and still go along with the blogathon..
I think I’m getting too much addicted to WordSwag.. And to beaches and to sunsets!! Sigh…
I had a very productive day at the office and feel great about it.. If only I could feel the same about cooking.. I made something with peas and potato and called it a peas potato Briyani 😜 I didn’t get to taste it too as I was late for office. B finished it all saying it was good.. Well, he must have been hungryπŸ˜’
Today he asked me whether my mom was coming to visit us.. I know the reason he asked was to eat good food πŸ˜’ Can someone send me (even a link would be fine) nice and easy to follow recipes no? Or any food blog that you follow?

Day 14: Wordless Wednesday – Beach

2015/01/img_1042.jpg

Flight tickets booked to Goa and I was all set to have that much needed vacation. But now.. Nothing!! I’ve got to attend a training at work and had to re-schedule everything. Haven’t decided when.. 😞😞

P.S. The pic above was not clicked in Goa 😜 that’s my hometown and that was clicked by yours truly. ☺️

A messed up relationship

20130722-161033.jpg

Infinity was what we had in mind when we were together. Yeah the silly fights and wordless days have been there, but 2 years is a really long time for not talking, dont u think?
BFFs…. The first face that comes to my mind when i come across that word is you. Whenever i come across a friendship quote, or read something related to school life, watch the pretty little liars being there for one another.. All i could do is sigh and think of you. I don’t even remember how it all started, or the words exchanged, but i do regret them every single day. Best friend or boyfriend… y did life give me an awkward choice? I wanted us to be together, wanted things to be better between you and him. In a way, i knew him through you and i am forever grateful for that. You hated him. Never think i’m taking sides, coz he hated you too, but he respected my feelings and decided to put things aside. But everything tumbled out of control, and all thats left is me missing you.
There’s that longing deep inside.. that the 5 of us should hang out together, laugh like crazy.. Reminisce our good ol’ skool days.. Plan out our weddings..
Do you remember the first letter you sent when i was in Pune? Maybe i started caring more for you after that.. Maybe thats when i crossed a line and interfered more in your love life. All i wanted was to make sure you made the right decision. I’m sorry if i had been OTT…
I just hope someday you would wake up and realize what we had.

Happy Birthday Liya.. Its not and never will be the same without you.
