Hello everyone! Hope you’re all OK. Here in Bavaria, it started white and cold this morning, now still cold but wet. I think I prefer the snow part than the rain. Anyway, I’ve just bought our Christmas wreath for this year. This Sunday is the first Advent so we can light the first candle. When HRH the son was small, we usually make our own. But since this year, HRH the son said he’s not coming here for Christmas, we thought we’ll make it very simple. We’ll probably put some Christmas lights outside, but we won’t have our Christmas tree. Besides, we won’t be here for Christmas. Him Indoors and I are planning to spend the holidays in the mountains, the Bavarian Alps.


It’s my birthday soon. We’re flying to the UK the day after my birthday – sort of celebrating my birthday, also celebrating Him Indoors’ dad’s 80th birthday and then the day after that, going to meet the future in-laws. Yes, we’re taking the train to HRH the son and his beautiful K’s place to meet K’s parents who are also flying from their city. We’ll probably go for a Chinese meal and talk about the coming wedding. Looking forward to celebrating this union, in two places, the UK and India!

Cheers for now everyone!


Hands and Fingers – Serendipity Photo Prompt 2015-7


Him Indoors plays the piano well
I like to listen to him as he plays
Be it a Chopin or a Beethoven
He can make it sound very well
Like he’s always serenading me

He also has a green finger
A good gardener he is and he knows it
He plants seeds, mostly chillis and impatiens
Our garden full of dahlias, lavender, sweet peas
He doesn’t mind getting his fingers dirty and muddy

And as for me, I like typing my blog
I may not use all my fingers, just the two
But I can type fast and hope the words come
So I’m keeping my fingers crossed
That all’s well that ends well

I hold my mother’s hands
old and wrinkled, years of experience
they used to carress me when I’m upset
they used to wipe my tears and assure me
that everything will be alright
that she’s always there come what may
