Just to say 'hi' !!! :)

Just popped in to say, I am alive!! Hope you all remember me :)  I missed you all :(

Well things weren’t going good at my side . You can skip my ‘ Ram Kahani’(tale of woe) and directly view the pics and of course say a big ‘Hi’ to me….I need it very much from you.

I had been down with severe allergic cough. Every time I tried looking at my iPad to read blogs, I found myself terribly barking at it. No, nothing to do with your posts…ha....ha..…I did that to whoever was around me including furniture and walls with watery eyes . Sounds eeew ? I did put hands on mouth (mine, ofcourse) while coughing and it enhanced the sonic levels to higher decibels…he….he….. It seemed as if it wasn’t going to end at all . If that wasn’t enough, I developed a severe upper-left back pain piercing through to the front which made coughing even more painful . When I approached physiotherapist and a follow up with my ENT doc, they thought I am overreacting and a cough cannot cause that much of pain. Unwittingly, she wrote a painkiller. Later, I understood that I got a sprain while lifting the center table all alone…..that’s not a new task , I do that daily. But some days are unlucky :(
Fine , I carried on with my day-to-day activities with Raj taking some of the workload. I already suffer from plantar fasciitis and lower back pain. These pains took a backseat and I failed to feel them.
During this time my brother visited me for a day with mom to drop her at my place . She will be staying with me for few months here . Sure , I was glad and was looking forward to it but I shamelessly told him that I can cook only once a day and ordered food from outside .

Everybody told me that I do not sit properly while doing my needlework and that’s why the pain is there , so I was asked to take a break from it. It is difficult to tell them that ‘taking a break’ means doing needlework only. I wasn’t asked to stop my daily household chores though..…that’s not fair, isn’t it?  Anyways, I stood up for my rights and took two days off from household work .
Slowly the cough subsided and the pain, only a bit when one of our family friend visited us for couple of days with his daughter….that meant more cooking playing the host. All went well without any disaster. When the sprain subsided, my perennial pains started rejoicing and took control over the body who felt neglected for many days . I felt back at home with them :) the fact that I am with these pains ensures that I am normal and no new pain is attacking me .

Raj’s Birthday was on 29th Nov and Anshita’s on 1st Dec. :) I could not make anything for them other than preparing the food they like . Anshita made this quilling card for Raj...…her first ever quilling project. Isn’t it sweet? :)

We planned a lunch party on Anshita’s Birthday for her friends but unfortunately she got very high fever a day before her party :( Sadly, we cancelled the party and were visiting the doctor on her Birthday. We then arranged her party again on next Sunday which her friends enjoyed a lot. At the restaurant, we booked table for 15 of us . Thankfully, they gave us an enclosed space as the girls turned it as a play area. After some time , we elders (6 of us) turned deaf and the girls had a great fun time!!! :)) Back home , they played some games.
Some pics…..

They all wanted to sit on a single sofa

and they all came tumbling down :)))

After this I thought of writing a post this week but Anshita again caught throat pain and fever and I was busy looking after her. She is fine now and hopefully will be doing fine in coming week.

I took time off this weekend to write the post. Not only was I away from blog land but also I was away from needlework for entire one month..….that is quite long for me since I started an year ago.

I hope I will continue at least being in touch with you all but may be for another month I will be on and off from blog land as some medical care is planned for my mother this entire month.

Nice talking to you after a while :)
Keep in touch!
