Happy Holidays

Today we have started packing our bags in preparation for our family  vacation which is scheduled in three days time .Everyone at home is in  the holiday spirit.Vacation means shopping for things,clothing and even some prescription medicines so that the children will be on the safe side.I have also  started cleaning and clearing stuff from the kitchen,so that everything will be in order once we come back from our holidays.Since we will be away for almost three weeks,I wont be in a position to update my blog or visit other blogs during this period.I  will try my best to schedule  some  blog contents so that my readers  who may drop by my site will have something to enjoy.

                                                  Happy holidays to you ..see you soon!

What A Transformation!

After finishing her 12th board exams my elder daughter had to attend a party organized by the school for all the girls in that section.The girls were all requested to dress in colourful silks and beautiful assessories.This time my daughter too wanted to wear something different.Usually I help her choose the dress and the other assessories when ever an occasion arose where she had to wear something new.She would always prefer my choice as I go  for very simple clothing ,however as this was a farewell for the girls she wanted to look her best.It was surprising when she chose  an outfit designed with lots of embellishments and also decided to adorn herself with colourful Indian bangles.She was no more the little girl.In an instant she  looked very much a lady with all that those stunning assessories beautifying her.I was amazed to see my daughter being transformed into a mature young woman,like as if Cinderella's godmother had used her a magic wand  on her. This also made me realize that this is the time I have to let go some of my strict 'parental' supervision and let her make choices at least when it comes to choosing what to wear.I just cannot imagine my baby has grown....

A Personal Apology Just For You

An apology is expressing  remorse for something you've done wrong, and  often  serves as an appeal for forgiveness, as well. Apologizing for a mistake might seem like an  unfeasible task, but you can get through it. Here's how. See for yourself .This video clipping is awesome..Someone is really apologizing to you! All you got to do is imagine it’s your loved one who is  apologizing.This was sent to me via email.And I just couldnt believe what I saw : someone is actually  saying sorry to  me ,even though it's only virtually.
So amazing what people can do with computers and technology!!!

A personal apology just for you- watch how this works ,you'll be amazed..

Busy Schedules

In a week's time from now ,my children will be writing their formative assessment tests before school closes for summer vacation.So most of the entertainment devices have been unplugged ,so that they would concentrate more in their studies.I too have postponed several things for later due to this.Recently my daughter's class and the whole of the 10th grades had a fun fair and an exhibition  which took place in her school .However only parents  and family were allowed to view the exhibits.My daughter had been very busy making handicrafts  according to the themes designated to her.Together with her classmates ,she had organized wonderful games and  quizzes for the visitors.They also had arranged to serve free  food( volunteered by parents)  to the visitors who participated in their game shows.My daughter wanted me to make some fancy cupcakes.Fortunately, I had some  ready mix packets at home which made it easier for me.All I did was add different colouring to the cake batter before baking them .Once cooled I decorated them with cake sprinkles.The Fair was held for two days and I baked two batches of cupcakes for those two days.

A Brand New Computer

For the past several weeks ,the computer was giving me a lot of trouble.Even a trip to the repair shop couldnt make it right.So for now it is sitting idle in a corner of the room waiting one more time to see if the problem that's being  generated within,  could be fixed.In the meantime,my dear hubby got us a new PC.It looks very elegant and easy to handle.Even the Modem looks very small .We were all excited to see the  brand new device.My son helped hubby to wire everything in place .I am so happy ,even though he is soon going to be eleven, he has learned so much about computers.He even helps me with the downloading and uploading of pictures from our digtal camera to the PC.I am glad he is learning  things from this technology.
