And so it was pouring cats and dogs and tigers and lions in Mumbai over the weekend….and so you can as well guess my mood
On Thursday, RD and I got very romantic and decided to do our veggie/fruits shopping at the main market and in the pouring dripping crazy rain, we held hands and that stupid shopping bag and shopped for veggies..yes we are romantic that ways!
and then I asked the fruit fella for mousambis..he said Rs.50 for 4 and I bargained (which is very very impossible) and got 5 for the same amount..feeling very smug and proud of myself (What!I told na I never bargain) I took them out on saturday morning and spent bloody two hours taking out the flesh midst R’s potty, R’s hair bath, RD’s fight with R etc etc…Appa! I salute you for all those mousambi choling which you have done for us for our lives 🙂
I have decided never ever ever never to bargain all my life bah!
Then after the mousambi episode we dropped R to the daycare since we had to go to bank…RD is smart that ways..he tells me you go into the bank and ask (it was POURING!) which I sit here and guard the car…yes that guy is guarding the car…from what I have no clue..but I went in, spoke to them, didnt understand anything (remember everything in a bank rattles me!) nodded my head, very knowledgeable and came out to be dripping wet in the rains…I tell you umbrellas are of NO USE in the mumbai rains..
We went to do some shopping at in orbit mall, ended up buying NOTHING..saw the sign to donate blood, while RD ordered the food, I went in to donate…I refuse to reveal my weight here…HHG I have failed in our pact…and then too shocked to believe that was my weight (I was wearing my shoes which were full of water, that must be like about 10 kgs okie!) I went in to donate blood…the nurse was amazingly great and she asked me when did you last donate..I told her when I was in collge and she is like how many months before is that…*Blush* I told her seven years..she is like WHAT..and I am like yeah and all while I blushed and all that she managed to poke that needle into my vien and take out blood..I asked her..is my blood red..she was taken aback for a second, and said yes…and asked me why? I was like pata nahi kya colour ka hoga..isliye check kiya 😉
Then one guy said, can I take your picture….I refused…I told him I am too shy so dont take it..he didnt believe me..but thankfully didnt take it..
then another guy and one lady come in..they ask me..so you are the first lady to donate blood, do you want to get yourself photographed..and I am like no please..the nurse is laughing by now…why they ask, and I repeat I am shy…They are like okie a bit taken aback 😉
So get your boyfriend to also donate next time that lady tells me…
I dont have one..I tell her
She looks perplexed..that guy with you ..who is that..oh that is my husband I tell them..and they laugh 🙂
Then they force fed some juice and whole pack of parle G biscuits on me (which were great) I kept telling them my husband has ordered enough food to last us for a couple of days, but they refused to listen…I got some certificate from then and then I went to RD and we ate in peace 🙂
The way I was showing off at that shop..someone would think I got published..heheeh 🙂 Who cares, happiness has no bounds when you admire someone and then they get published 🙂
Went to D mart and shopped enough to last us for about 2 months..yes we are lazy that ways to keep going there..only when the bill was being done, RD and I got a bit of a shock ;)We went home, and I chopped the veggies for the weekend, while RD put all the groceries inside..We went to pick up R, she got her share of maggi at the daycare so was happy, came back home after going to the temple..I disposed off some of my old books which I never read, to a local library there and earned some space at my house..which means I can go book shopping again yay to that 🙂
and of course had a very short ‘skirmish’ with RD about something trivial..but we are trying not to break the tradition 😉
rain, rain, rain and more rain we did this…
then had some hot dal and rice..have you ever had hot dal and rice with loads of ghee and a tinge of mahani pickles on a rainy afternooon, its awesome awesome awesome
I made R work a lot that day…dust the cupboards, make the peas pulav for the night, of course do the lime juice stuff, etc etc..What I am training her well na 😉
In the evening, R and I went for a short walk in the building…R wanted to learn how to write 2 and 3..and then after we came back home to practice, she refused saying mereko nahi aata..yaa she is smart that ways 🙂
RD’s office had some major disaster and he was on the phone from 3 in the morning (Saturday night) to 10 in the night (Sunday) So I really dont know what he did 😉 That was my weekend…how was yours?
I leave you with R trying to sweep the house A la. Harry Potter 😉
