6 beautiful things to wake up to..

Best kind of mornings..

* When the early morning light slowly falls on your face, you open your eyes only to find your partner looking at you with love

* the pit patter of raindrops falling on the window sill, that awesome smell of wet soil… Rains are the best especially when the sun has just popped.. 

  
* waking up to the aroma of hot coffee, extra awesome if it’s made from freshly ground coffee.. 

* Waking up to your phone beeping with a text that it’s a local holiday and you can take off. (OK, not a fat chance of this happening in Private sectors )

* Someone somewhere listening to your favourite melody.. And throughout your day, you keep humming it.. 

* Biggest of all, your partner rolling over to your side of the bed, whispering all beautiful lovey-dovey things and finally tells, Don’t need to cook today!

After all this time..

When someone asks you who’s your best friend, we immediately say a name. That’s during school. Same question when asked during college, we hesitate a little. Because we have the best friends from school and college now. It doesn’t get complicated, but the happy circle grows. 

Same question when asked now, when you are married/middle aged/old , brings about so many happy memories. You look back and remember all those precious moments.. every single time spent with friends or moments that strengthened that beautiful bond.

I’ve had my share of best friends coupled with lots n lots of drama too. Best friend from school considers me her no.1 enemy now. Other besties are busy with kids and the rare phone calls and chance meetings keep it alive. 

College.. My four years of engineering was made tolerable because of friends. Especially two of them. To this day, I thank the stars for those two in my life. Hailing from an all girls school, college was the second place which was co-Ed. First one was, of course Std XII tuition where I met B. 😝

These two friends have always been there for me no matter what, without *Conditions applied. I can go on and list the things they’ve done for me, but it will be endless. 

My relationship with B happened and because those two friends were guys, we drifted apart. I’m still in touch with them, but things are not how it used to be. They maintain a safe distance and keep conversations limited because they wouldn’t want to come between B and me. 

So why this flashback.. Today these two idiots had gone back to college and posted pictures. Nothing special about it, you might say. The three of us, are fr different departments. While they had posted pictures of them with a gang in several odd spots of the campus, one picture in particular made me smile. 

They had taken a picture, just the two of them in front of my department. They wanted me to be a part of that moment, is what I kept thinking. And in such a discreet way of letting me know it.  

To others, it’s a normal picture. To me, it was everything!

Absent minded 

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. 😕 

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.. 😭

Unbreakable

Yesterday night saw me crying and brawling and going on a depressed mode. All’s well today and I’m back to my ‘everything’s gonna be alright mode’. 

Sometimes you need to cry and let go off the pain. It’s good to cry! Once all the crying part is done, there comes a quietness, a sense of peace and the situation before you becomes a little clear.Until then it’s best not to decide anything. 

Even though things don’t go as planned, it’s okay.. There’s nothing that hard which I can’t overcome, I say to myself after crying, each time. After all I did succeed in marrying B after a three year struggle. All that thrashing.. And I was strong. So what’s happening right now is merely a phase. This too shall pass.. And one day, I will reach that place where my tears have only one reason – happiness! 

Have a great week ahead, people! 

Trust

He could say she was nervous. He wanted to ease out those creases forming in her forehead.

She looked up and noticed the amused look on his face.

You idiot, she wanted to say. Her mind was thinking of various ways to get back at him.

You will pay for this, she smirked.

“I’m not sure if I’m ready to be a mom”, she blurted out. His lips curved into a smile.

“You haven’t checked it yet. Or have you? “.

Her ‘no’ came rather quick and she bit her lip. “I’m scared to find out”.

He moved to her corner of the bed, and reached out to her. She needed this. His arms took her in and she leaned onto him.

“You will make a great mom and it’s something that I know just like things we believe not just because of an instinct or blind faith. It’s like how  we trust in a greater being. Not forced, but natural..”

“Trust you to make everything look easy”, she chided. Though not completely convinced that she will be SuperMom some day, the warmth of his smile was contagious and she beamed.


P.S First attempt at fiction 🙈🙈

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 hungry😒
Today he asked me whether my mom was coming to visit us.. I know the reason he asked was to eat good food 😒 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 19: Because Monday!

I was searching for something to write about in Pinterest and came across a whole lot of funny memes about Mondays.. Poor thing!! How much we hate it.. 😜

Went grocery shopping today and realised that’s the only place me and B have been to in the past two weeks 😞
With this week, morning shifts n crazy timings will b over (at least for the next few weeks) and I’m gonna start reading the books that are left halfway..
