Hello Summer!

I know most of you on the northern hemisphere are counting the last few days of autumn and it will be a cold winter but for us here down under, it is a different story, its summer time.

As you may know reading my posts here that I hate winter so this is a great time of the year for me. I am loving the beautiful spring weather which is slowing turning into summer. To enjoy this beautiful weather we have been going to parks often.

There is a park near our place which has rows of Jacaranda trees and the purple colour looks just amazing this time of the year. Chhori loves running around and it is a great place for me to spend some time with my parents.


Also on the weekend, we took Chhori to a beach with our friends and family. She had an absolutely amazing time. We took a beach bucket and spade set so we could dig in the sand. We made sand castles and dug holes.

We had Chhori and my nephews covered with sand at one point and they loved it.

Overall it was an absolutely great day and I can’t wait to spend more days like this by the beach.

Summer always makes me happy, coming home from work when the sun is still up in the sky, enjoying the beach, BBQ and lots of outdoor times. As Chhori is getting older, we are going out and about more and life is getting back to normal.

If you are on my side of the world, enjoy the great weather and if you are on the other side, stay warm.

On a side note, I am not sure for you all but for me this year has gone by so quickly. I feel as if it was only a few weeks ago that I wrote a post about coming back to work after maternity leave and now it is almost the end of the year.

Merry Christmas (1)

Looking forward to Christmas and New Year break.

Take care everyone and have a wonderful day.

Our new garden

Remember, a while ago we moved into a new apartment. We had a choice of getting a house or an apartment at that stage.

A house meant we could have backyard and frontyard but we would need to travel longer for work. We chose to stay closer to the city and our work hence we ended up buying an apartment.

So far, we are loving our new place and happy about our choice. Now we have one more reason to love our place, we have our own garden.


Before we even moved into this place, AS had this crazy idea to have a synthetic grass on the balcony and convert it into a garden. I was not thrilled about the idea in the beginning as synthetic grass is really expensive and I wasn’t not sure how it would turn out.


However, when we moved to our new place, we have a big balcony. Actually the balcony is bigger than two of the bedrooms we have.So finally, we decided that it would be a good idea and had laid the fake grass and we are quite pleased with the end result.


We bought outdoor furniture and a few plants and pots and finally the garden is done. Of course how can an Aussie garden be complete without a barbeque :), so we have a gas barbecue.


The garden is now an extra place where we relax, enjoy our breakfast in the weekends and also entertain guests. It has also been a place for me to just lie down and watch the sky or just unwind.


All our family and friends are impressed with our idea and they loved it. I have to thank AS for his creative thinking in using the synthetic grass. 🙂
