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.
Looking forward to Christmas and New Year break.
Take care everyone and have a wonderful day.

It’s autumn in Australia right now. The weather has been pretty good for autumn giving us a few warm days in a week. Most afternoons are still nice to go out and about and I am managing to take Chhori to parks often after work.
She loves going to the park now as she can run around or play on the swing or slides. I love seeing her so happy.
As she is home with my parents most of the days, it is nice to see her running around after we get home. It also gives AS and me some time to just relax and watch our daughter without household chores taking up our time. It is a perfect time for me to spend with the most important people in my life. If we don’t go to the park, we just go for a walk but we do go out.
But everything is going to change soon. Last weekend we had day light savings switch our clocks an hour back. That means the days are getting shorter and by the time we get home, it is almost dark and we don’t get an opportunity to go out. On top of that winter will be here before would I like it to be and I am so unhappy about it.
As you know already, I hate winter and I am going to hate it even more because we will be stuck in our apartment more during the cold season. It was okay for adults to just cover-up and stay in front of the TV but I don’t want that for Chhori.
I am not sure how I can help Chhori to be active in the evenings during weekdays if we can’t go to the park. We still have weekends which we will utilise to the fullest but she will miss out going out in the evenings.
Please suggest any good activates indoors with a 1 year old. I would like her to enjoy and spend time with us. I am sure I am not the only one with similar issues. Thank you all in advance for helping me every time when I am kind of lost about what to do.
Take care everyone,
