Recap: Mar & Apr 09

To continue with the recap...


As the school session was to end this month and the kids' would get a week off, we decided this was the best time to make the final move.

But before that there were such long lists of things to buy for the new house.

Result: Shopping Frenzy!

I am not much of a shopaholic but this one month I shopped like crazy. That we had quite a few exhibitions on only propelled my mad consumerist soul to go all out. I visited the Dastkaar Haat which was really, really good. You can read about it here.

Then I stocked up on bedspreads, cushion covers and god-knows-what-else from a handloom exhibition at Pragati Maidan.

End Result: Excellent Retail Therapy! :)

So loaded with all the recently purchased goodies, on the 28th we landed at the new house all bag and baggage. Was it a coincidence that the radio played that old number Final Countdown by Europe as we drove towards our new home!!!

Me and hubby had a good laugh over this; this really was the final countdown, the final move.


This one month passed by in such a rush. Trying to adjust to the new life at a new place. Falling into the paces at a redefined tempo.

But the fact that we had moved into a relatively sububrban setting from the mad city rush somehow soothed our senses. We finally had time to stop and smell the flowers, at least over the weekends.

We had the time to go out for walks. I resumed my reading after years. This was just the wonderful life we had wanted.... touchwood! :)
