5 years.....

Two days ago.....I don't knowwhat came to my mind..... but I just felt... it would be nice to get pampered.... so... I sent the husband an sms mentioning flowers and chocolates... knowing that he must have had a pained expression on his face when he read it... he is so not the flowers and chocolate type.... but I thought.... what's the harm in trying....





I honestly had forgotten about that sms.....





That evening ... when the door bell rang ...I was looking like a rag ...still in my kaftan and an apron .....we were going to have some surprise relatives stay over for dinner..I had been informed of their plans after the cook had been shooed off for the day saying ..."aaj kuch nahin banana hain" and I had sent over Joy and the maid to my mums for some peace and quiet...as well as a chance to make a few presentable things to put on the table...so I just about managed to open the door and sight that greeted me ... was someone I loved standing there holding on to a beautiful spray of the most pretty yellow carnations and a box of After Eights...my favourite.....with a silly smile on his face..... what more could cheer up a harrassed mom...on a stressfull day....




The husband had stopped on his way home from work and picked up my favourite flowers and chocolate for me... he called on his way home and checked where I was... and despite my telling him to pick up the baby and the maid on his way back came straight home to me.....



Now, I haven't had the time to check my mail or even go online in the past few days.... what with Joy getting a slight heat rash.... teething .....the weather making him cranky and trying to entertain him indoors and finding things to do when he looks at his stroller at 5.30 pm.....waiting to be taken to the park is quite tiring....hence despite my computer staring at me.... I wasn't online...



I read his blog today and read something he had written.....on the day he got me my flowers..... it had really been 5 years since we had first met......It had completely slipped my mind.... but apparently not his.....



I am glad I met him...I am glad my mum buldozed me into considering his family's proposal.....I am glad I married him..despite finding his name weird....I am glad we were able to give each other love and also the most precious gift of all.....
our Son....The Joy of our lives....

Hey Tina!

I read Dipta's blog mentioning it's been 5 yrs that you guys had met. I was hinting to Nilendu about writing something similar for me ;-) but now I think I will start hinting about flowers n chocolates. Btw carnations and after eight are also my favorites :-D Very impressed with Dipta since he got the hint hehe.

Ummm, Sukanya... there was no hint involved. I got a SMS asking for After Eights and flowers (including details of colour & type). Being a good salesman, I executed the order immediately.

Suggest you do the same to Nilendu! Never rely on hints... they are soooo confusing!
