Hello Monday + Winner of the Birthday GIVEAWAY!


Good Morning Monday & Hello New Week!

It’s a brand new week, the end of a month, the beginning of summer and the day after my Birthday. I had a fun day yesterday.

I opened a handmade card (that my husband drew for me) at the stroke of twelve; woke up to a platter of gifts, something my mother (yup, she came all the way from another city to wish me on my day) sets up for me on every birthday; wished over a birthday candle set atop a scrumptious chocolate brownie cake with vanilla butter frosting. 

My mother and I cooked a mean Shepherd’s Pie for lunch (yup, the expected chicken + potato combo), and later all of us trooped out to Sula Vineyards for a special birthday dinner.

And while I’m talking about my birthday, let me issue a bloggy apology (for all those of you who called and got a call back from me later in the evening) . Let me write about it here, the equivalent of shouting it out from the top of the roof. Let me smile sheepishly and tell you why I couldn’t take your calls pronto, and why I was that-girl-who-takes-ages-to-finally-press-the-green-button and say “Hello! Thank you for your Birthday wishes!”

Every time I had a call coming, I was either feeding Mr. Little Person aka Baby N (and those of you who know me, know that this is one of the few times when multitasking is the furthest thing from my mind), driving or totally unaware of my phone ringing because the poor chap (I mean Mr. Red not Mr. Little Person) was burrowed beneath layers of debris inside my bag.

So anyway, it was a HAPPY Birthday in every way. A patchwork quilt of small joys and big moments.

Now we come to the fun part. The name of the winner of my First Giveaway, my Birthday GIVEAWAY. I wrote up your names on chits, folded them like ironed handkerchiefs, threw them in a bowl and let Baby N ‘grab’ the winner.

Pallavi Iyer – Congratulations!!! My favorite book 'Me before You' by Jojo Moyes (and I hope it becomes one of your favs soon too) will make its way to your bedside table (or wherever it is that you keep books) this week. Message me your postal address and number via the Facebook page or through the comment form, and I’ll have it delivered at your doorstep.

Thank you all for taking part in the Giveaway.

Have a good week!
