Plans and Un-plans

It’s been a tough week. K got his first vaccinations and coincidentally also dealt with the sprouting of two pearly whites. H was working full-time until day before so it was me at home with the kids, for most part. Sophie, my sweet, darling girl is so intuitive. She knew something was up the moment…

Half Birthday

Little big K is half a year old today!

Monsoon and Summer

I always make a big deal about my birthday- the day, the week AND the month. And this time, on the weekend of June 30th, Hamburg, my new home, my safe haven, echoed my sentiments exactly- it was the weekend of a relentless, never-ending drizzle.

The Perfect Eyebrows

Anu is possibly north-east Indian. She has shiny black hair that is tied up most of the time (because I see her only when she is working). She has a heart-warming smile that makes her eyes smaller than they already are: the kind that makes you smile back. She’s not so tall and looks fragile…

Perspective

A lot has changed since my last post. I feel like I have finally arrived in Hamburg. Even officially, I now have a residence permit card (and it is quite fancy looking). I am learning German and I’m loving it. I am as diligent a student as I can possibly be, even if it means doing my homework before getting to class. Ah…school 🙂

Touring Hamburg in Five Hours

If you had one afternoon in Hamburg, these are the places I would recommend- just the right amount of walking, history and enjoying the view!

Our Kleine Maus- Sophie Kutty

She is sleepy, active, naughty, well-behaved, cuddly and loves her alone-time. She is already spoilt, can be very embarrassing. She even has her own Sheldon Cooper-like spot. Say hello to Sophie!

Finding Purpose

For many reasons, some in my control, some not at all, I don’t have a job yet. For all intents and purposes, I am a housewife. There, I said it. It’s time I accepted that, however much I detest the term and everything that comes with it. After months of fighting it, I have now come to terms with it. That is who I am at the moment….

Daylight Saving : Off

More sunlight makes everything better…literally and figuratively. Spring is here!
