A weird weekend…I dont know whether I liked it or not
On Friday night, the best cook of the family decided to bake a cake for me…ayayyayayay for that 🙂
Check him out in action 🙂
He is pretty good at it now…guess who is the official baker in the family then 🙂
Then we had our skirmish…really stupid one…but we had it anyways…he said something about me troubling him or something when I told him to get R’s dress..and I was like why are you getting bugged..and he was like no I was just kidding..and I was like why aare you getting bugged..and then of course it went crazy from there and both of us just hmphed and went off to sleep…gah!
Saturday..we worked 😦
both of us..of course after kissing and making up, he decided to drop R to the daycare, me to the station and then go to work…so thats what we did…R was having super duper coughing….and so we decided to take her to the doctor in the evening after we finished work….I left a bit early and then RD got stuck because the Tata sky guy was coming home to repair something…
so I picked up R and took her to the doctor….We waited for a while before the doc came…
The doc, thankfully, was okie with R’s health and told me to enjoy Diwali 😉
She obviously has a bad bad cough, but he thinks it will get better soon…Did I tell you earlier that I love this doctor 🙂 he is the most positive fellow I have ever met, never judges me by the fact that I leave R in the daycare, never has told me that take leave and be with her..blah blah blah!
RD and I had decided to go ‘shopping’ after R’s doctor appointment and then we were blessed by the rain Gods….so we just went home!!! can you believe that..its still raining in Mumbai!!!
anyways so Saturday night was just omelets for me and R while RD went out with his friends…
you know the time when you just want to curl up in bed with a
book kindle in hand, reading a nice romantic novel, eat a cheesy omelet with dollops of sauce in it on a crisp piece of bread…thats what I did after I put R to sleep…I LOVED that :):)
I made like a ton of thelpas for dinner (I advance plan too much!) and then sambhar and rice and ‘same and barabutti’ curry for lunch…scraped one whole coconut and then RD cleaned up the CD shelf..we have so many unwanted unused DVDs and CDs!!! half of which we didnt even know existed!
Check out R trying to ‘help’ amma to make the thepla ka ‘lot’
Gave a hair bath to R and then R gave her famous tantrum of not letting me have a bath..and the whole time I had one, she was crying..she just wouldnt listen to RD trying to distract her..cry cry cry..which just worsened her cough 😦
but this time RD and I didnt give in..we told her sternly boss…you better learn to behave..then of course RD couldnt stay angry with her for long..and neither could I..so we ate and then tried to put her to sleep which I decided to slip away to the parlour..unfortunately she had such a bad cough that she saw me open the door..and RD is like ‘dont go now..go on tuesday..waise bhi kuch lag nahi raha hai tereko dekhke that you have to go to the parlour’ Did I mention why I love this guy 🙂
anyways, so R and I slept for a LONG time together …
We wanted to take her to the park in the evening but didnt finally because of her cough…so we went shopping..oh before that
one of the trees in the next door building has shaped itself like a ganpati and gosh you wouldnt believe within a matter of hours, there was a shamiana built around it, garlands put, coconuts broken, lightings added, devotional songs put on a CD and then there was even aarti in the night! this happens only in India, I swear!
anyways so we did ‘darshan’ of the Ganpati, more importantly ate the prasad and then left to go to Borivali for shopping..Boss…dont dare go to Borivali on the weekend before the weekend of Diwali starting..the WHOLE MUMBAI was there…it was crazy..there was no space even to walk!!
It was crazy..RD refused to even leave the driver’s seat in the car..hehehehe 🙂 R and I did some quick shopping..got some amazing shrikhand…
came back home, ate our theplas and shrikhand (RD ate chutney, mulagai podi, shrikhand and thepla) now you know where R gets her weird tastes from!
and then went to sleep
We are lying down in bed and RM is reading a book to R
MIL calls and RM tries to speak to her
R: Amma dont talk on phone
RM: Arey let me finish talking to thathi na
R: no no no
RM: Amma, I will call you later
MIL: okie beta, no probs
RM to R: Why cant I talk to my mother
R: Amma, tomorrow laukar yehnar che…thats why..maja book who will read karofy (Tomorrow will come fast…thats why, my book, who will read then)
tomorrow – English
laukar – fast in marathi
yehnar – come in marathi
che – like how you used hai at the end of the sentence in Hindi, we use che in Gujarati so thats gujarati
maja – mine in marathi
karofy – hindi english
