Getting ready for 6 weeks of sadness :(

I had already decided to do the Dechox challenge for the month of March. But since Lent is starting tomorrow (we had our pancake day yesterday evening), Mr. M suggested that I should try my first Lent and extend the dechox until the Easter. He promised to join me in that challenge (not that it is any big deal for him, coz dark chocolate doesn’t suit him anyways 😛 ) and also that he will get me my first Dark Chocolate Easter Egg on the Easter day to mark the end of this challenge. Now, all I have to do is to get through this 6 weeks. The penalty is 1 £ for every time we end up failing to do so.  It is going to be very very very tough. Wish me luck.

Milestones, Changes, A Quote

Hi there! It has been a while (close to two weeks) since I have written anything, except for those odd photograph posts once in a while. In the meantime, it looks like I have crossed the 2000 followers mark in WordPress and 100 followers mark in Instagram 😉 That is Awesome! and a huge THANK YOU! and to all those new followers, Welcome! and I do hope you enjoy your time here in this small part of the blogosphere.

These two weeks, I have been volunteering as a teaching assistant in a Primary School here in London and this school is quite far away from home. It has been a while since I got up at 5.30 am on a weekday other than to catch a flight or receive someone coming by a flight. The early wake-up, the hour and a half long train and bus ride, a whole 6 hours of school work and hour and a half long bus and train ride back home left me exhausted and tired and I still had to get some of my other work done too. Wasn’t an easy week, but still I managed to achieve a lot in terms of pending official and personal work. But my blogging took a hit. I could have blogged during my train ride, but I am not a great fan of typing on my phone, irrespective of how fancy & convenient it is. I like the typing sounds of my laptop. Mr. M keeps making fun of my tick-tick-tick keyboard sounds, thanks to my fast typing mode 😉 but I enjoy that.

I am looking to switching my career to teaching and hence this volunteering to see if I can and to ensure that I don’t regret it later. But these two weeks of spending time with Year 3 students (the same age as my first niece) I am sure I can do it and it would be fun too 😉 I should ensure that I don’t get too emotional and attached to the kids, though. That is something I have to remind myself daily when I eventually take up that profession.

I am yet to check out a lot of blog posts from these past two weeks but hopefully will get there eventually. Until then

I never thought I will say this in my life, but ‘Happy Monday’ 😉 and Happy Blogging you all!

Artistic keys

One of my friend in USA has started to display his artwork through his instagram photographs. I  have always loved his work and glad that he has started to share them with the world.  He is the one who designed my tattoos. Here is a favourite one of mine.

Valentine Week Gift List – What!!!???

When I shared a photograph of two teddy bears belonging to my nieces on Instagram, little did I know that I coincidentally posted them on “Happy Teddy Day”.  One of the days where you share a cute teddy bear with your loved one as part of the Valentine Week Gift list.  Really???  On Twitter too, I saw a new search term “liketwoteddies”.  Good Lord!  How come I haven’t heard of this before?? In case you want more details on this to take advantage of ;),  here it is.  I am not responsible for any expenses you might incur because of this article and for the record,  even though this is quite funny and a little bit cute,  I think it is too much.
