Happy Birthday

This is the 250th post here- in 12 months of blogging.

At the risk of being repetitive and sounding like I won an award:
Thanks Boo, Usha, Ammani, Apu and Hip Hop gmom for inspiring me
Thanks Itchy & Visitor for indulging me, in fact you stopped along the way
Thanks all you readers from alan to madmomma to rohini & sts, from sunitha to fuzzy to namvor and the younger lot- kid and analog kid and many more of you who visit often or less
Thanks a lot to Tharini for the new header- I think it is very cool. And of course it was very generous of her.

Most importantly a huge thank you commentators for egging me on and to Anush and my family and work to give me enough subject matter to write about

I used to love it when my parents recounted their past and my childhood to me.
The blog was intended to be a memoir for Anush when she grows up- not just to know herself but to know her mother better with all her quirks and ups and downs- especially when I am old and she may not be able to understand that I was once young ....

Now for a "well deserved" break for you and me!!

You & Anush are my inspiration :)

Tharini said...

Art : Congrats on the milestone. I was waiting to see the banner and how it would look. why is it looking so shrunk??? I'm a little disappointed for I expected to see it span the entire width of the header space. Was that the original size I sent you? Your last header was larger and fit better than this one.Can hardly make out any of the icons or the details of the background etc.

Usha said...

Wow - 250 in just one year! amazing! Of course you have to share it with your sweetheart daughter who provides you with so much to blog about!
Congratulations to both of you!
