Anush woke her up this morning with a gusty rendition of " Happy Birthday" and claps. My mother made her Bise bele bath, her favourite food.
As for the celebrations yesterday, it was wonderful. Both of us took off . We had a lovely "Only us time" followed by picking up Anush from school. Then we gorged at Cream Centre instead of Influence which is where we originally set out. Got back home to some good family time and enjoyed Mumbai Bhel ( with the murmura from Mumbai courtesy an uncle) and yummy dinner.
Dropped the idea of movie- New York got bad reviews from friends and anyway did not wish to take Anush for it or for Angels and Demons.
I surprised Navy with a perfume, sunglasses and watch ( he never seems to have enough of them)
He did not surprise me with typical gifts but his taking leave and putting off his cell ( most of the time) was enough to keep me happy.
Here is what Anush gave us:
" One ice cream for you (mango) and the other chocolate ( red chocolate!!) for Appa"
