Happy birthday Ma and An Award!

The last week has been quite an eventful one. It was my mom's birthday on the 21st of this month, so everyone please wish her. She is a doll.

Met up with all my UK friends in Pune. Everyone is now in India, and of course after 27(age I mean), they all come with a package, i.e. most of them with their spouses :-)

Then came the Gudi padwa and Ugadi. So best wishes to everyone. Festivals are always such happy occasions.

And then (how many times, do I use 'then'?) the icing on the cake; I got my first award!

Thank you so much Neha ! This is indeed very motivating.


So the rules for this award are

1. Add a picture of the award on your post.
2. Thank the award giver.
3. Share 7 random facts about you.
4. Choose 15 other bloggers to pass the award to and let them know that they have been nominated.

So 7 random facts about me:

1. I am crazy about SRK and Roger Federer. If I could, I would marry them, yes both of them :-P

2. I dream about eating chocolates, pastries and butter chicken everyday, of course in a 28 waist size jeans :-)

3. I love to travel, and visit new places. Trains are my most favorite, and buses are the least favorite. Hill stations and beaches, I could live there. 

4. I love to read books, especially suspense thrillers. Books are my greatest stress busters. I still read the Enid Bylton books. It makes me feel closer to my childhood and happier times. Also, I can read the same book multiple times.

5. I am very short tempered, but I cool off even faster!

6. I am crazy about tea. My day will always be incomplete without a cup of tea. And Yes I would never refuse, if you offer me a cup of tea anytime of the day(and night :-P). 

7. I just adore swimming and running!

Phew!!! 

And now I would love to give this award to:
















I adore your blogs guys :-)

Lots of love!!!
