It’s a wordy wednesday for a change..

It’s been a while since I posted. It is funny how there are times, when I get loads of time to post, and no ideas, and other times when I have my head brimming with posts but not a minute to spare.

It had been one of those weeks, where nothing went as per plan. I think it started last Saturday. We had a fun Saturday planned out. We had some shopping to get done, and then the plan was to catch the 5:30 show of Despicable Me. We started from home later than planned and decided to catch a quick sandwich lunch on the way. Lunch out of the way, we drove to an outlet village some miles away from town. It was when we reached the village, that I realized that I did not have my handbag with me. Now, I am a person who needs to carry something. I have, till date, never forgotten or lost my handbag anywhere. It had my purse with around 50 odd pounds as well as all my credit, debit, store cards, loyalty cards, library cards.. The thought of calling up all these organisations to cancel and request for a new card itself was mind boggling.

The only logical place, I could have forgotten my handbag was the sandwich place. I remember having it with me. So we started to search for the phone number of the place( thank god for smart phones). We were hoping that we could call them and check if somebody had found it. Finally after a lot of tries, we got through to them and I can only say that it was such a relief that they had indeed found my handbag and had kept it away safe! Seriously, I can’t tell how you much ofΒ  a relief it was. And they were kind enough to hold on to it, until we got back from our shopping πŸ™‚

Yes, we did watch the movie(although the 7:30 show, and Poohi was all sleepy at the end of it 😦 ) , and loved it.

Come Sunday and Poohi comes down with a slight temperature. All she was worried about was about going to school the next day. They have been busy with their Christmas concert practice, and the thought of missing it was the worst thing ever. Well, she has missed a few days now, is she goes to bed every night, praying to be alright the next day.

Have so much to post – book reviews to be done, and no time at all! Having the child at home is a very time consuming activity!

In other unrelated stuff – the Bihar Elections Results are wonderful, don’t you think? For a change, the focus of Bihar elections was not on caste/religion/identity politics but on the developmental plank. Now if only that could be done on the national level as well.

And we have snow(albeit light snow showers) predicted for this afternoon! We are so excited! As I was telling somebody else,Β  I wait for snow, until it actually snows πŸ™‚

    • Whoa! It’s so nice that they found it and kept it tell u were done shopping – most important πŸ˜‰
      Hope Poohi is feeling better now πŸ™‚ Same pinch Sweets – Aunty hs been down with a throat infection too πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

      As I was telling somebody else, I wait for snow, until it actually snows πŸ™‚ – Yup. I saw that on Comfy’s blog πŸ™‚ Gud one πŸ˜€

    • Losing the handbag…have not done yet so far, but sounds scary !!! Now, I’ll remember to hold on to it !!! πŸ™‚

      It was a first for me too- and it was all so scary – until we knew it was safe πŸ™‚

      Oh dear…Poohi is not well huh ??? I hope she gets well soon. πŸ™‚ Hugs to the little baby. πŸ™‚

      Passed them on, Uma πŸ™‚

  1. yeah not lost the purse/handbag/wallet yet…a big *touchwood* can’t imagine the trauma of cancelling the cards and all that 😦

    I know! I was so shocked when I realized that I had forgotten my bag somewhere.

    But nice people exist in the world and thanks to them πŸ™‚

    Absolutely! Honest people do exist!

    Hows the movie ? You recommend ?

    I loved the movie! Cutie pie movie πŸ™‚ Go watch it πŸ™‚

    Hope Poohi feels better..hugs to her πŸ™‚

    She is better than yesterday – hopefully she will be fine tomorrow- fingers crossed, she misses school so much!

  2. I lost my set of keys in snow.. and I searched and I searched and then searched som more.. sadly… two years have past.. and the keys are still MIA!!!!!!!!!1 They had all the possible keys we needed! Urgh!

    That was the only piece of luck – I had forgotten to take my set of keys that morning from home. That was one thing less to worry about – or I would have to run to get a duplicate made of house keys as well!

    Glad you found the purse… its scary naah!!!

    Seriously, it was such a big relief!

    Light wintry mix is forecast for us.. and I dont want it.. Its thanksgiving tomo.. implying a parade with big balloons for my daughter.. implying.. Snow equals we not going….. crossing our fingers!

    Oh oh! The weather is not as bad here yet. Just a few light showers are predicted. I think really bad weather will come towards the end of December. Hope you get to go to the parade πŸ™‚

  3. Good to see an update from you Smiths.
    Glad you got your handbag back. I can relate to all these incidents where you forget or lose stuff very well 😦

    I am normally quite good with stuff like this – I have never forgotten my handbag anywhere – but there is always a first time, I guess πŸ™‚

    We saw Despicable Me a couple of months back and loved it too.

    It is such a cute movie, isn’t it? We lag behind – a lot when it comes to movies πŸ™‚

    Hope Poohi gets better soon!
    She is recovering – hopefully should be fine tomorrow.

  5. Oh, Thank god they kept that handbag safe for you! That cancelling of all cards and applying for new ones would have kept you away from blogs for longer!!!! Eeeeksssss πŸ‘Ώ

    LOL@ ‘That cancelling of all cards and applying for new ones would have kept you away from blogs for longer!’ That would be true πŸ™‚

    Darling Poohikutty is in a Christmas concert?? πŸ˜€
    Hope she gets well very soon and gets back for practise!! We want snapsssssss!!!!! PLISS!!! πŸ˜€

    Will do πŸ™‚ All the children in the class are in the concert – every class has a concert πŸ™‚

    Despicable Me was just soooper, wasn’t it? I wanted to catch it a second time… but failed! DVD, for sure… I loved Agnes!!! *It’s so fluffly, i’m gonna DIE!!* πŸ˜†

    You loved it too πŸ™‚ It is the cutest, isn’t it? Agnes was so cute! I want to see it again now πŸ™‚

    Hope you get the time to do those book reviews, Smithu!
    And play in some snow on behalf of Crafty who hasn’t touched snow till date πŸ˜₯
    Except when we had those de-frosting refrigirators that had ‘snow’ building up in the freezer!! πŸ˜›

    LOL! You come here and you can see snow for yourself and help Poohi build snow men πŸ™‚ This year, she says she wants to make snow castles 😦

    Politics? erm… PASS!!! πŸ™„

    Get-well-soon Ummas & hugs to Poohi!

    Thanks Crafty πŸ™‚ Hugs back to you πŸ™‚

  6. So nice of those restaurant guys to keep your purse safe, Smits.

    Seriously! I was hoping against hope that we get it back – thank god for honest people!

    Awww, Kunju in a concert?? How sweet! I hope she gets well soon, paavam, she must be feeling so miserable, alle? Did she go to school today?

    Yes, all the children in her class are in it – every class has a concert – they find roles for all the kids πŸ™‚

    Ummas to my kunjumani and hugs to you πŸ™‚

    Ummas and hugs back to you and Namnukutty. I haven’t been able to relax ever since someone saw Namnam’s cake. Apparently she wants that cake for her birthday now 😦

    • In that case let me know whenever you plan to make the cake again, will send Namnu over to yours. The girl hasn’t had enough of it but I’m not sure if I’ve any energy left in me to bake it again πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      That would be perfect πŸ™‚ I will have to bake it very quickly in that case:) Maybe then I can lure Namnam’s mom to come along – to see the snow as well ?

  7. Hope poohi is better now.

    She is still not completely alright. It is a viral, so it will take it’s time.

    Good that u got ur handbag.I just hate to carry anything in my hand,i always keep my mobile as well in husbands pocket and when he is no there with me
    kids pocket and a small purse also in the kids pocket.

    LOL! You get your husband and kids to carry stuff for you πŸ™‚ Lucky you, Sari πŸ™‚ I need to carry a handbag, and by default, everything including husband’s wallet and both our phones(sometimes even husband’s official one) are in the bag. That day, luckily, my phone was in my jacket pocket, and husband had not handed me his wallet and phones – thank god for that!

    Thats a good people decision of voting for Nitish kumar,this shows that politicians should not take common people for granted.Was very happy to see lalu’s and rabri’s face on tv…..

    Seriously! It makes me so happy that people vote for development, when they can. Clearly, when we have a good alternative, we will vote for it.

  8. Glad to read that you got your handbag, back, Smitha! And is Poohi feeling better now?

    Poohi is getting better – not completely well yet.

    I am so jealous that you have a forecast of snow. Mumbai is still in a state of October Heat- and it’s almost the end of November!

    And here winter has started earlier than usual. Last year, it snowed only towards mid december. This year it is here already! Climate change, do you think?

  9. Loosing a handbag… Thankfully that has not happened with me so far… But i can understand how tensed one might get and what a relief it must have felt to know that its kept safe… πŸ™‚
    Even i want to enjoy snow once…:( Neways u have a good time in snow… πŸ™‚
    Hope Poohi is better now…

  10. There is hope in the world after all… πŸ™‚ ur handbag is safe!!

    Aww…take care Poohi sweetie. She is one of the few kids I know who is totally excited about going to school. Well good for you…it becomes easier as far as u are concerned πŸ™‚

    • I almost had a panic attack! Thankfully, we were able to get the number of the cafe and thankfully they had it πŸ™‚

      I loved Despicable Me. Poohi is better now, though she has not recovered completely.

  11. /*As I was telling somebody else, I wait for snow, until it actually snows*/

    LOL!!! πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

    We had heavy snow last night, and it is all white today πŸ™‚

    I heard that movie good.. but yet to watch it Smitha..

    It is good, Kanagu, you should watch it.

    Good that they kept the purse at safe.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Hope Poohi is well and her preparation for Christmas songs going good πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Poohi is better now – she should be going to school on Monday.

  12. Despicable Me is an awesome movie with superb one liners. No other animation flick had me laughing throughout ! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ and the 3D effects are too good, better than Avatar if you ask me ! Did you stay till the end credits ??? Thats the funniest part ! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    I am also waiting for snow. Yup, in trivandrum ! Theres nothing wrong in waiting, is it ? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

So, what do you think?
