Sweet Memories

Happy Anniversary to the royal couple William and Kate.It seems like yesterday that my daughters and I watched their grand wedding which was telecasted live all over the world. Today,with the rest of  the world, I rejoice their first wedding anniversary.Cheers!!
Back in the eighties,when Prince William's mother,who was affectionately known as  Lady Di, married her Prince charming,I was a young girl who was very much fascinated by her innocence.I even kept a scrapbook full of pictures and articles about her.I was, like any young girl, thrilled to bits when I discovered that my favourite romantic author Barbara Cartland was Lady Di’s step grandmother.Barbara Cartland’s writings kept me under mesmeric spells,so much so,  I used to be obsessed with her recounting of the tall,dark and handsome Princes and Dukes who  fell for  the common girl. However, unlike the happy endings related in her books, the story of her own Princess didn’t end happily ever after.I still feel sad when I think Of Lady Di, who still is fondly referred as the people’s Princess. A couple of years ago, when I was an active member of a scrapbooking site, I made a digital scrapblog as a tribute to my heroine,however,the scrapping site is no longer active and I am very much disappointed with myself for not  saving a copy.

Learning To Make Healthy Choices

The  new academic year has just started  and  my eight year old  has been promoted to grade 3. I just cant imagine how soon days and months have flown by.Although he was a little disappointed  that some of  his friends from the previous class were not going to the same class with him ,he was as anxious to meet new friends and teachers. Today his class is going to learn about healthy food and eating a well proportioned  diet consisting of all the three food groups.This is to create awareness  among children as well as parents the benefits of eating healthy by way of a balanced diet.We were sent a note from the teacher to choose  some food from  the food group energy-giving food,body-building food and  protective foods and pack them  in his school tiffin carrier .This way it would be very easier for the teacher to explain to the class about eating good food and making  healthy choices. Taking it as a lesson for me as well,I  packed his tiffin box with a tuna/cheese sandwich, some sliced cucumbers and a packet of milk.As he usually loves to take a sandwich with his favourite  Nutella,the chocolate spread, he was a little  hesitant  to take what I had packed for him today .However after some  cajoling ,he promised to eat them.I applaud the class adminstrators for motivating such concepts in young minds as this will benefit them in the long run.
Eating fruits -A very healthy choice
