Did you wonder if I’d fallen off the face of this planet.
I’m still getting used to life in Kochi……parents, in-laws….need I say more!
But whats really been keeping me occupied has been an errrr…’assignment’ that I’ve taken on. My latest avatar is as an e-tutor-basically I have to be up at
the crack of dawn ungodly hours to teach kids why ‘She and I have to go to the park’ and not ‘She and me’….yup English…and Grammar at that!
It’s hard work. I left my brain behind in the maternity ward 7 years ago and getting it to kick-start is not easy.
And waking up that early is a HUGE effort too. Over the last few years the bed and I have cemented our love for each other. Even if my house were to explode I’d still have to consider if it’s really worth getting out of bed.
So then my dad asked me ‘Are you really enjoying yourself?’
WHAT????????? I have enough trouble living the moment..now I have to enjoy it too????????
Here’s a whole wheat cookie I tried the other day. We are suckers for cookies and these were GOOd..even if I say so myself:)

Recipe Source- Deeba(passionate about baking)
