Hey everyone 🙋
Here’s wishing all my women blogger friends a very happy women’s day…be the change..
The women in my life…
Have a great weekend ahead 🤗🤗🤗
Here’s the prompt:
The Railway Station!
Brings back many memories of the bygone days…
One such is of the time she had to stay away from her love…not knowing what was store for her in the future…
They walked hand in hand…She wouldn’t let go of his..She was a mess internally but seemed very calm outside..He too was surprised that some one like her who was an endless bundle of energy was soo calm that day..
She knew it could be or maybe it was the last time ever she was seeing him..maybe..nothing was certain at that moment..
He was going away to his city..to a new life..having completed his medical school He had nothing left here except maybe her.. maybe..
The train arrived at their platform..having placed His luggage they both stood silently watching the crowd hustling by..
As the train cooed she panicked..
It was time for Him to leave..they hugged and kissed without a care as to who was seeing them..
He boarded the train..She stood there watching him leave..witholding her tears..
He mumbled a love you..She mumbled back something…She saw him leave and was completely shattered..
The months passed by they stayed in touch through mails and messages…She met him after a year and half..He had changed completely..yet He was Hers..
She was nudged from her reverie by her husband as she stood there on the same platform waiting to board the train, the very same train,to her In-laws place..His place..(Though 4 years late, She married only Him)
She had her hand in His..Happy and glee..!!
Have a great weekend everyone 🤗🤗🤗
Hey everyone 🙋
I am back with yet another tell tale thursday picture prompt …thanks to firsttimemommy
You can check out her amazing inputs on child care and wonderful short stories..
Here’s the prompt:
She heard a loud crash at about 3 in the noon..
8 months pregnant,she ran or atleast tried to get fast to where the sound was coming from..
She heard a lot of commotion, of people shouting and sounds of branches giving away..
She stood still in her balcony.. Before her lay the magnificent tree..
The same tree she had seen and nurtured since the house was built..
No one knew why and how
it had come crashing down..
The huge branches crashed against the electric poles and the compound walls of the opposite house…
She could not bear to see the very tree beneath whose shelter she had spent those rainy days on the balcony watching the rain droplets tickle the window grills..
The same tree cause of which the summer months were cooler..
Her favourite pastime being standing in the balcony at 2 in the morning wherein the cool breeze from the tree brushed against her..
When the whole world was asleep, she used to just stand and watch the tree taking in the calmness of the night…
The many summers she had spent reading a book or enjoying an evening Tea under the shelter of the tree..
The sight of the squirrels playfully chasing each other on the branches or the cawing of the crows would never be seen or heard again..
It took quite a while for her to overcome the shock and get used to absence of the tree…
One fine morning a month later she woke up to another commotion..She hurried to the balcony with her new born..
This time to see her Dad and few neighbours standing at the same spot busy planting a new sapling..
Her dad looked up and she beamed with joy..
Soon another tree would sprout there and would grow up with her daughter..
Hope you enjoyed reading this one..
Have a great weekend everyone…🤗
Hey everyone 🙋
I am back with yet another tell tale thursday picture prompt …thanks to firsttimemommy who sets my brain working by posting these picture prompts .. you can check out her amazing inputs on child care and wonderful short stories..
Here’s the prompt:
Romantic getaway gone wrong..
Just like any girl she grew up on fairy tales and stories of lands far far away..
It was her childhood dream to always visit disneyland and boy did it come true when her husband surprised her with a trip to Hong Kong..
She was super excited to see the woven tales of Snow white, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Sleeping beauty and many more characters come to life in front of her..The castle mesmerised her..
All in good spirit until the better half started asking her to hurry up cause he did not want to miss out on any attractions in the park..
They fought..had difference of opinions and she tagged along reluctantly..
Finally she had had enough and told her better half to leave her and go complete seeing the whole park by himself, while she chose to sit and savour the sights around her..
He actually walked away..she wasn’t expecting that..
Heartbroken, she watched the fireworks show,the hallmark of the theme park held at the end of the day wherein musical stories were being retold and displayed on the castle..her dream castle!!
She missed him..
Both were in the same place yet far away, lost in the crowd..
They reached the meeting point of the tourist bus, she still angry and annoyed that she had to see it all without him..
He fuming that he had indeed missed her and glad she was there safe..
Hope you liked it..Have a great Valentine day…until next time..🤗🤗🤗
The sepia tinted pics..Brought back memories of those bygone days when a picture meant a lot…a camera reel loaded with 36 shots..with no space for retakes..
One shot captured is final.. whether you look fat or have hair covering your face..candid as we call them now, it was all in the moment..
The beauty and sceneries were more embedded in the heart and soul and not in those hard-disks loaded with multiple shots which we hardly ever go back and look..
As I was immersed in these thoughts, my two year old daughter came over to ask me “Mumma pic..”
I complied by clicking a series of pouty pictures for an Instagram post..
So Ironic I know…(sigh)
This is my version of the tell tale prompt..not a story just thoughts..
(This was supposed to be posted a couple of days ago..but never too late…)
In an attempt to try and post regularly here I am..
A few weekend updates/thoughts..
🇮🇳So firstly we celebrated Republic day so “Happy Republic day” to all the Indian’s worldwide…
🏡Just back from a festive holiday visiting the in laws and again we get an off thanks to the national holiday..Republic day…so I make the most of it and visit my dad at my hometown..
🏥Work wise I am still going strong( touch wood) trying to achieve goals I keep setting for self!!
🎊It is the better half’s birthday 🎂 this month and I am still looking out for a gift for him..soo boring….cause he apparently has everything I could ever dream off getting him..( I always write this line..cause it is the same everyear)
🦄I somehow seem to harbor a new obsession of sudden urges.. currently it being colouring my hair red or ombre or oh wait..reddish burgundy type??!!! Omg…red hair…so let me see how far I get to it..
👡Another I want want thing is shoes.. few of my reader friends would know of my obsession with shoes..sandals..wedges..flats..(only the comfy things mind you)😛
So I ended up buying 5 pairs of them as if the world is going to end and swallow up all the footwear…The expression on my dad and better half’s face when they saw these were priceless🤣
💄Lipsticks and me are never far off…I still am looking for that baby pink with soft subtle tones..the search is on…
🇮🇳Reality check this was supposed to be a republic day post 🙈 but being me ..Nee.. you know… so once again Happy Republic Day my fellow Indians..🇮🇳
Be the change..
Hey Everyone 🙋
This is in response to a blog post #telltalethursday by first time mommy you can check out her amazing inputs on child care and wonderful short stories
Here’s the prompt:
You hear a rasping knock at the door at 1 am.
Write a story following this sentence – it can be funny, scary, dramatic! Anything that showcases your writing skills.
So here is mine…
They heard a rasping knock at 1.a.m
The better half opened the door..
She peeped to look at what or who it was..
There HE was, the face she often wondered about, for the past soo many years..
As their eyes met, HE stood there silently having a conversation with her..
Her husband cleared his throat to remind them of his presence..
She came back to the present…HE stood there still…
The train to the village was late HE said..too late she thought!!
HE was back to the village after all those years..those long years which she had spent thinking of why HE had not comeback or sent a post, as he had promised HE would..
HIS family had migrated during partition..
HE had come back to sell their village house and go back forever..
The look on HIS face said it all..
My first attempt at picture prompt story..hope you liked it , any feedback would be appreciated and don’t forget to check out firsttimemommy
Have a great weekend everyone!!!🤗
New year..New hope.. New resolutions…😛
Wait what was mine again???🤔I don’t remember making any specific resolutions cause I never stick to them🙈
But come January and the intense urge to loose some weight creeps in..😩
As usual, I am feeling lazy to go to the gym,not that I am a regular!!😒
It takes great willpower, planning, waking up and dragging myself to go work out!!🙈
So I decided I will start the GM diet..( General Motors diet) for weight loss and specifically for detoxifying..
I feel bloated thanks to the new year’s lunches and dinners and the cakes what I have been eating..
I normally don’t eat junk food…just occassionally, cause I am eternally on a weight loss spree!!😏
Always being conscious of what I am eating atleast makes me maintain my current weight if not loose any…
So I am off to start the GM diet again..and does it work???oh yes..for me it does.. surprisingly…I modify it to suit my needs and yes I end up losing atleast 2 kilos without workouts and 4 kilos with workouts..that is the max my body can loose in a span of 7-10 days..
I love it cause it makes me feel light…I do loose the inches though, I fit into my jeans and all but most importantly helps me detox!!Which I feel is very essential!!
You start questioning your food habits and get a reality check on the amount of water you drink or rather how much you are supposed to consume which I am sure most of us don’t do..so wish me luck..Let us see if I can loose some weight, inches and feel light!!!😈
Have a great rest of the week!!!🤗
