11 months to Christmas

“In the blink of an eye and the beat of a heart…” we are almost through with the first month of 2014. For me, I’ve settled quite comfortably into a new daily routine. For one who’s always loved school, but hated waking up for it, I am now wide awake when my alarm rings at […] Read more…

2014.

It is funny how this photo of my dad walking away is the one that captures the essence of how I’m looking forward to this new year – with a lot of anticipation of all the good things to come, excitement over what’s in store, and determination to make some serious changes in my life. […] Read more…

The State of Being. Flat.

This is me. It’s a photo I took for Emma’s blog [http://www.emmathespy.wordpress.com] a week or so ago, but which I didn’t use. As with a ton of other thoughts I’ve been meaning to blog about, which I didn’t get to do. I wish I could write more. It’s not so much a discipline issue these […] Read more…

But I’ve always built something romantic in my head around the idea of tea-drinking – something soothing, comforting, English, proper, and nurturing. For the last five months, since we’ve […] Read more…

“Write about the monsters under your bed”

She’s the author of “Eat, Pray, Love” and well, while I didn’t read the book, and love the movie largely […] Read more…

Rather, we should just purchase what we absolutely need instead of […] Read more…

Anticipating Emma T-minus 31 days

Nesting instincts definitely kicked in a week or two ago. We’ve managed to get almost everything sorted out and what remains are things that I would prefer not to do this early – like sterilising bottles, etc. I hope we haven’t left anything out. Physically, I can’t wait for Emma to be born. Being pregnant […] Read more…
