Met Usha - one of my oldest blog inspirations. She is just what she is on her blog- frank and lovely. She thoughtfully got Anush a CD of stories. Anush surprised me by really taking to her and not wanting her to leave. She even asked for Usha before the blogger meet at Blore!!
Went to Blore for Navy's cousin's wedding. Travelled by the day train after a long time.
Enjoyed the mehendi . . .
Anush to a relative" If we ask for mehendi in only one hand, then they will put till here( till mid arm) . If we ask for both hands then they will put small small....."
Anush to me" Amma that mehendi lady is very good and fast na? .....Shld i say woman not lady?"
Anush delighted the gang with her dancing and prancing to all the " 9xm songs" and even did a solo dance much to her own delight!!
Anush dressed up in all her finery and enjoyed herself thoroughly with the teenaged lot at the wedding.
I was asked the same battery of questions " due date... how r you....how is anush reacting....are you still working...." and that was it. Some of the older women told me it would be a boy since my skin looked pretty bad.
Yes, met up with some bloggers and their lovable kids- Poppin's mom with her delectable kids, Monika with Ojas and hubby, the most gracious hosts- Mamamia (Abha) household, Starry and Collection of stars with her lovely daughter.
Enjoyed the conventional food at the marriage.
Wore a sari after a long gap- a gorgeous Kanchivaram designed by an NID student- one gifted by my mother over a year ago!!
Met a distant relative and friend of Navy's who had been following my blog!!
Took a fancy new Shatabdi and met a lovely co-passenger who indulged Anush almost through out the journey
