R says Amma, two times three is six!
Honestly, I dont feel an year older than six at times..but unfortunately, time and tide wait for none and hence I did turn two times three yesterday, to turn 33!
Amma, you are sooooo old, giggled the brat, when I told her how old I turned. Yep, darling that I am :)
Funnily, this birthday, we did nothing dramatic. Not that we do anything dramatic every year, but this year was pretty subdued.
I had my star birthday a couple of days ago and RD and R got me a yummy chocolate cake in the evening. When I came back from work, the brat wasnt playing down in the building and I was very surprised. I went up and she went going up and down saying ‘Amma aayi Amma aayi’
Much to my surprise, I got a yummmmy chocolate cake which said Happy Birthday Amma :)
Sigh! RD even went and got a candle for me to blow (candle to blow karne ka Amma, otherwise what birthday!! asked the brat when I was like forget the fuss!)
I blew the candle, wished for everyone’s good health and cut the cake. And RD has improved. No surprises at all. He had asked me what I wanted for my bday…I had asked for this long time ago.
The guy was kind enough to get me two of these :) And dont laugh, do you know how useful that bag is it to keep the soap in?
And then yesterday, we didnt go out at all. Except a trip to the temple.
R had another bday party to attend in the afternoon in the building and she was all excited about it.
So what did you do, people are asking me today.
I said, I made all my favorite food
Breakfast – Sabudana khichidi
Lunch – Awesomely yummy (though a bit of salt would have taken it to another level) egg biryani thanks to Smita
Dinner – Schezwan noodles made my style
And I even baked an eggless banana chocolate cake thanks to Smita again.
In short, it was a birthday where I just received calls from loved ones, loads of messages, unexpected ones as well and rested doing nothing except cooking.and of course, the brat and her dad gave me the official birthday gift. A bag. A college/school bag which was much needed since the current one I take to office is torn and tattered.
RD is really proving to be an excellent learner as far as giving gifts are concerned :)
I guess, this was one of those birthdays, where I realised that, the whole party thing is pretty over rated eh?
Yep would have perhaps enjoyed, going out, but had equal fun sitting at home and resting peacefully.
Ok. Now its official. I AM DEFINITELY OLD!
