Birthday Recap!

Remember I was rambling about turning 32 & not being very happy about it!........................so I woke up to an uneasy,not-so-happy feeling on 23rd August!
But surprisingly the day went MUCH MUCH better than I anticipated:)

Well I woke up & picked up my blackberry to see lot of wishes on my FB which was a nice start to my day:).....................went straight to the kitchen to prep breakfast for kids , hubs was standing in the kitchen making tea & was of-course the first one to wish:)

Then rang the doorbell & the flurry of cards started,from my friends to officer families in our brigade ,followed by endless calls from my parents,in-laws,sister,relatives & friends ,so yes the day started on a happy note!
A friend of mine gave me 2 exquisite handmade paintings in Madhubani Art!


Since it was a weekday,the day went in the blur of household chores,but the evening turned out to be interesting!
We decided to go for coffee in the evening as against a dinner because of work & school the next day!

I asked my son to get ready to come with us & he goes "I have to go biking with my friends,can I take a rain check!"   OK next to daughter & she goes  " I have to go play with my friend & her dolls "


So we got a chance to go out,just two of us for the FIRST. TIME. IN. EIGHT .YEARS!
Yup no kidding.................well this was exciting,so I actually put on some makeup ,got dressed nicely & left waving goodbye to the kids!


Now before I go on I must tell you a trivia ................I am truly my husbands co-driver not just in life but in actual driving too!
He has the habit of looking everywhere but the road while driving & it's my job to keep telling him "watch the road,don't hit the dumpster,don't ride ON that old woman!"

We drove off but were pretty uncomfortable knowing we had left the kids back home & were planning to enjoy just on our own!.

This was the conversation we had on our drive:)

Yash:So let's go!
Me:Yup



Yash:{Silnce}.............he is the quite types:)
Me: Yash,watch the road
Yash:I am


Yash :{silence}
Me:Yash watch the barrier,don't drive into that!
Yash:OK


Yash:{trying to make a conversation}So how old are you today:)
Me:{glaring} Do you have to rub it in!
Yash: embarrassed smile followed by silence
Me:Yash watch the road................


Yash:{silence}
Me: Are you carrying any identification {we live in a military cantt. near LOC & can not get in unless he is in uniform or is carrying identification}
Yash: {grunt}..........which I assumed was a YES!



 Me:The car is almost out of petrol,let's top it up
Yash:OK


After filling up the car


Me:Turn the car carefully on the highway,don't bang into anything!
Yash: OK



Me:Let's go & pick up the kids
Yash: Why!.............let's just enjoy with each other!

Me: {glare}
Yash: OK

LOL.................so after this electrifying start to our date,we turned back to pick up the kids.

My daughter squealed in delight seeing us back so soon & hugged her daddy as if she hadn't seen him in years:)....................my son too parked his bike & came sat in the car & it was instantaneously filled with laughter,chatter & happiness!


OMG.................I didn't realize how far we have come in our relationship ,it felt so empty without our lil ones!
A simple coffee evening felt like a big celebration!

I know the day is not far when the kids would prefer their friends & may not want to hang around with us,but till then I plan to savor each & every moment with my lil family:)





There were cute lil bunnies ...................kids loved playing with them:)




the small lil pastries,the cool blue,coffee just added to the ambiance:)




so I didn't get tons of gifts,or go for a romantic candle lit dinner or have a big party,but this was probably one of the best birthdays I have had so far!

I was HAPPY & that mattered the most!

Well...................I did come back to 3 sales,few inquiries that turned into sales the next day which boosted my flagging confidence in my career choice......................would I trade turning 32 and the happiness it gave me for a smaller number?................Nah..................let's just say I turned 18 with a 14 year experience;)
