Rainbow colour🌈🌈🌈

Chhori is 3.5 years old now and she is getting so smart day by day. The other day, AS wanted her to wear a twinkle toes shoes which was purple in colour but lights up in different colours.

So the father daughter had the following conversation

Chhori : “Papa I want a rainbow shoes please.”

AS: “Put on these shoes (pointing to the purple shoe), it has rainbow lights, red, blue, pink, white and black.

Chhori: “No papa, that’s is not a rainbow” and started singing the song.

Red and yellow and pink and green, Purple and orange and blue

I can sing a rainbow, Sing a rainbow, Sing a rainbow too

That is rainbow papa, not white and black and other colours.”

AS: “Ohoo Sorry, I meant colourful shoes.”

Now who can argue with her as she is telling the facts?

I love to eavesdrop into father daughter conversation, it always manages to make me smile.

Take care everyone,

I want Pink room

First of all I am very sorry that I have been MIA for a while. Thank you so much everyone who DM me on Instagram and twitter and emailed to check if everything is OK.

Yes, everything is ok. It is just that we bought a new house and the packing, moving and unpacking has been taking up all my spare time and I didn’t have much time to update the blog.

I promise to be more regular now.

When we moved 5 years ago, it was a breeze as we moved from a one bedroom apartment to a 3 bedroom one. But this move was crazy and massive.

I don’t know how and when we collected so much stuff. It took almost a month to do all the packing, a whole day to move with the help of friends and family and I am still unpacking.

One of my missions while unpacking is to declutter so we have less stuff. Seriously, sometimes I wonder why we collect so much stuff.

With Chhori, we have so much toys and clothes and shoes, I couldn’t believe it when I was packing. Kids these days are definitely spoiled compared to what I grew up with.

So we unpacked the essentials first, which means Chhori’s room decoration wasn’t done straight after moving. Decoration was not even on my mind when Chhori came to me and had the following conversation.

Chhori : “I want my old room back.”

Me: “What do you mean?”

Chhori: “I like my old room in old house.”

Me: “This is your room now and you have the same stuff from your old room.”

Chhori : “But it is not pink.”

Then I realised that, I haven’t used her normal linen and curations and decorations to make the room pink.

Me: “Ok, this weekend I will make your room pink.”

Chhori : “I love you Mama.”

I am glad at least it is easy to make her happy  🙂

Have a great week everyone.

Take care everyone,

Packing and moving

I wish I was saying that I am packing again and going on a holiday but unfortunately, I am not. Instead we are packing to move houses and it is really stressing me out. I know there is light at the end of the tunnel but there is so much to do before we move that it is driving me crazy.

When I first knew we were moving I thought I will plan things so that I don’t have to stress at all but how wrong I was. I did the first 10 boxes of packing with lots of excitement but then the excitement faded away. And that was just packing one of my wardrobes. Then the other boxes were packed but very slowly. I had so much to do and I had time but instead I was either watching Game of Thrones on TV or just sitting on the couch doing nothing. In my mind, I knew that I have to get it done and finish it but my body was not moving and the cold winter evenings were not helping at all.

Anyway, we have to move this weekend and I have packed may be 50% of our stuffs but still there is so much to be done. Both of us are working until Thursday, which means we have only Friday to pack everything so the removalists can come and move our stuffs over during the weekend.

I realised while I was packing, how much stuffs I have including clothes, shoes, belts, swimwear, and accessories but at the same time I don’t want to throw many things away. I do have a few boxes of stuffs, which I am planning to donate or throw but I know I can part with many more. I am trying my best to reason with myself and try to organise stuffs so it can be donated but it is not an easy job.

Over the years, I know I have added more stuffs to my collection than throwing things out so surely, my wardrobe will need good organisation and I think this is the best time to do it. But I am so stressed for the last few days that I have packed many things into the boxes thinking I will decide about them while I am unpacking.

What I really want to do in our new place is to have less clutter. I want things to be organised so I can find things when I am looking for them without spending too much time and making a mess of the wardrobe. I wish I could hire help who would unpack my stuffs and throw out the things I don’t use but that is not going to happen. So I hope while unpacking in our new home, I will come to my senses and be able to throw or donate more stuffs from those boxes.

So after this week, I will be unpacking, fixing our new place, organising stuffs and may not have internet for around 2 weeks so will not be blogging much. But I promise I will come back soon. Till then, take care everyone…

XOXO
