Last Christmas


A lovely, mushy song from George Michael-with his sexy voice and Greek God looks ( those days)- I used to be a huge fan . And a huger fan of Wham.

Even had a poster of them in my room as I grew up. (They had Boris Becker and Gabriela Sabatini for company.)

This pic is Anushka - Last Christmas.
Wow- she was a bald one. When I took her out for a walk, the FAQs from others would be" Ladka hai? ( Is it a boy?)" or " Itni jaldi mundan kar diya?" ( have you shaved her hair off )
Last Christmas and This One
She was moving on her stomach and trying to crawl. Now she runs all over the house, sometimes out of the house as well and yesterday tried to match a jig.
She was gurgling and cooing and beginning to laugh and now she screams for fun and has added more words to her vocabulary. (latest being "lunch"- said with no specific meaning though)
She wore her first "baba suit" . We are believers of minimal clothing for kids. The weather here and in Mumbai more than supports that. Anyway, she never entertained being wrapped up, after her first week. This year I hope to dress her up as Santa (for my pleasure) since she will never ever permit me to do it ever again.
I had decorated the plant at home in Mumbai. I do not have any plants here in Chennai. Anyway the building society is hosting a Christmas party for the kids- that should be fun.
Her appa was in Chennai, not with us. Navy will be there this time.
Merry Christmas Anushka! And all of you out there.
