You know what makes blogger so warm and comfortable? It's you, my blogdosts. You make my blogging world so real, so loving and a rocking place to be!

And awards make it all even more fantastic.

Here are two awards that I received while I was missing from the scenes. Thank you so much Renu & Sonia. These are much loved and appreciated :)

Here goes the first one from Sonia :)
Before I give away this award to other cool blogs I know, I need to state 7 facts about me.

Here they go:
  1. I am an avid reader. I always carry a book with me! (I read in queues, while commuting, late into nights...)

  2. I love watching movies. Having a husband who shares your interest helps and we don't miss any big releases :)

  3. I love cooking for my husband, who makes me feel like the best chef ever!! Oh, and I know he is biased :D

  4. I am an extrovert and too blunt sometimes! There are victims who can vouch for this!

  5. I am not a party person. Close family dinners are fine, but anything beyond that leaves me drained and exhausted.

  6. I love shopping alone and can eat alone too :D

  7. Home-cooked food is my weakness!
Now for the recipients of this award. Here are the coolest blogs I know:

Sri @ Phatichar

Now for the second award. Thank you so much Renu :)

Another 7 random facts about me are:

  3. I love spending time with kids. They brighten me up any time, any day!

  4. I love surprises (hint...hint)

  5. I am a perfectionist, which my husband calls OCD (All Virgo women are!)

  7. I can't stand hypocrisy and lies!
Now for the versatile bloggers I'd like to give this award to:

It's been such a long time! And no, I haven't forgotten either this space nor all my blogdosts. But then, with so much happening around, I needed this space :)

We have shifted! And yes, it's been a big change for me. Having lived all by myself in one part of the city to now living in a different part is a baffling experience. Settling down is a process which is in process. The best part of it all is getting to decorate our new home and I am loving it!!!

Coming to decorating our home, the last month has been all about pictures, decorations, curtains, flowers, vases, lamps et all. Every time I'd go quiet sitting in our living room and my doc would ask, 'So what's going on in your mind now? Color of the curtains or size of the portrait?' He literally laughs at me and calls me his interior decorator' and that I have an OCD! He says I am going crazy with the number of pictures I am putting around the house. And you know what - I still have plenty of blank photo frames in the cupboard. I'd rather wait to display them all before he loses it :D

There has been another life-turning event for me this month. I have quit full-time job! Now, this was real big for me. When I left my hometown, all I was looking for was a great career. Gave over 8 years to it and now when I look back, it's been a very satisfying journey. Taking a voluntary retirement at 28 is something, folks!!! (Ohh yes, I have plans as to what next; will leave those for another post)

On the other hand, I have got down to some serious studies. Have a few exams for my last semester of a course I am pursuing. And blogdosts, I tell you - studying full time after so many years feels pretty good :)

One of the many problems that marriage has solved for me is about cooking. I had been living by myself for many years and you know how lazy I had been when it came to cooking for myself. Now come on, who likes to cook for their self alone?? At least, I couldn't. So yes, now I cook for us and it's fun. And it gets even better on moments like when after having home-made pizza, doc declared that he will never go out for a pizza! Honestly, if you don't want to cook for your self only, get married. But make sure you find someone who likes your cooking; else, don't say I didn't warn you. ;)

So yes, life is changed. And it's been beautiful. :)

So tell me, blogdosts, how have you all been? I am here for good now and you will see a lot more of me regularly. Thank you for putting up with me. I will get to your comments soon and your blogs too :)

Till then, take care and stay precious :)
