When I am 64


My birthday morning conversation with Anush after she had wished me-
Me: "Anush! Amma is 32 today."
Anush" I am 2 and a half"


In school , my birthday fell in the summer vacation- so I hardly celebrated it in the typical" party" style. We were on vacation to some exotic place or at my grand ma's =-s o that was a different kind of fun

In college all the Taureans would get together to give a treat to the rest of the gang and that would be a dance party that lasted all day long and end with a movie or something.

Post marriage Navy and my family make it special for me apart from a few friends.

This birthday I received the millennium Amar Chitra Katha collection, Haroum and the sea of stories and 3 bouquets. Had dinner at the rooftop restaurant in Raintree- awesome ambiance with good food with the people who matter most to me. Also managed to get the surprise in the form of the most elusive Vetiver blinds that I had been looking for the new house. While we did not get tickets to the movie ( Santosh Subramaniam or Kururvi), Navy used the opportunity to just drive me on ECR to the Casuarina trees I just love.

Also despite my age, as Anush wisely highlighted, most dear ones called up. Blog friend who called - hihphopgmom!! all the way from Jamshedpur!

The post title is a really cool song from the Beatles and I am half way there.

(readers may not be dwindling - comments may be reducing. For example I read all of them but don't always leave a comment because I generally agree with the sentiment and what can you comment about all the cute things anush does and says except go "awwwwwww" all the time. :) )
