welcome holidays

Bye bye year 12’s and welcome october holidays!!

This is what i love about my job..I get to be a stay at home mum every 2.5 months and by the time I’m tired of organising activities, running around kids and cleaning the house 100 times a day, its time to get back to my other role..working mum!! 

This holiday, my plan is to stay at home and enjoy my kiddos. We have few activities and play dates planned and i have some holiday lessons for my year 12 students, other than that its just relaxing and rejuvenating for the final stretch of the school year. Also time to get excited abut our trip to india.

Birthday party

This year boys agreed on a joined birthday party, since we r going to India during christmas holiday. Reporting back on it, it was the best party i ever planned. Since it was for both, it was team work to a whole new level. 🙂

It took almost a month to plan and prepare and it was lot if work, but it was all worth it. The boys had a blast. I made all the little crafts over a month and started cooking and baking a week ago. It all came together in the end by the grace of god..















July holidays

Edwin came back from school with a flu and still running fever. So our holiday plans are on hold until he gets better. I still haven’t printed the holiday calendar nor thought about activities.

Yesterday night i was in bed and thinking what is my priority this holiday. And I came up with 2 things..I want to make sure the kiddos are fed well and edwin to study everyday. So everything else is going to work around those two things. To make sure it happens, this is what I did in the morning. I made 2 snack baskets for the kiddies and got them to choose their snacks for the day in the morning.



Am I having enough fun with ma kids??

I don’t think so…Its been few days since we go outside and have some fun. To my defence its pretty cold by the time we get home. But if we could do it last year, we should be able to do it this year too isn’t it??

So a gentle reminder to myself…get out there and have fun with kiddos. Everything else can wait.

what I’m going to do..from tomorrow..5-5:30 we will be out playing and laughing and cuddling and tickling and enjoying the current season of my life!!!

New direction!!

Though I keep it to myself, I always set goals for myself and try to get there. That being said, there were lot of times, I lot interest half way and dropped it. This year, one of goals was to spend some money and time for myself. It may sound strange, but kids are growing up and I’m having more time in my hand to do other things.

Both Eddie and Noelly are going to bed by 8:30 now, which leaves us another 2 hrs to ourselves.so what am I doing with that time. Though I don’t like to admit it, I waste a big chunk of it on www. I know, I know I have to curb it and invest my time in important things.

But something I’m doing which is making me happy and proud is spending my some time on my appearance. I started picking my clothes for next day, believe it nor I even try different combinations with clothes and jewellery and coming up with different outfits. I even made myself a manicure pack with a dozen nail polish colours. It’s some thing I haven’t done for a very very long time and I have to admit I’m loving it!!!

On top of that I’m keeping a record of my workwear. I find that pictures help me to see the outfit more properly and see what works and what doesn’t. I’m not 18 anymore, so my goal is not to dress up, it is to dress well and look polished. So what I’m trying to archive is to find the trends and looks that works for me.

I planning to post the pics in the blog, slim accountable


Back to school

Did we have holidays?? After the first week that’s how I feel right now.but I can’t complain. I love the routine and organised life style school brings.

Today I want to record, how a normal school is like for us in 2013.

6- 6:30 : me in the kitchen packing lunch and cooking breakfast (mostly idli) , Chachan in the bath by 6: 15
6:30 – 7:00 – boys take bath and get ready. I get ready and Chachan finish ironing. I try to clean the toilet after bath
7:00 7:30 – lunch carriers in the bag, breakfast time. Chachan downstairs by 7:15.

Bye bye V-day!! hello Easter

Last year we bought a console table, which I was intending use for seasonal decor. I’m happy to report that it was the best purchase I did for our adobe. It’s next to the wall facing our lounge. So when all the chores are finished and I finally get around to sit down for my 10min reading time that is what I see. It makes me happy every time I look at it!!

Yesterday we took our V-day decor down and decorated for Easter. The kiddos got involved, though there were some fighting involved(not unusual). overall a fun thing we do as a family!!!
