2013 in review…and some plans for 2014!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,300 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 55 trips to carry that many people.

It’s the last day of the year and a new page is waiting to be turned. I am a total loser when it comes to new year resolutions and drawing big plans for fresh beginnings. In all these years I have never really cared to put together a list of goals that I really want to achieve in the new year. Life’s goals and dreams linger on my mind. I work towards them too. But I seldom make them my life’s mission. You see, I am a lazy, lazy person and I can really get complacent!

But this time it is different. Perhaps it is about growing old. I realise that I need to reassess my life’s goals and set things in order. While parenting is a very important aspect of my life there is a lot more that I want to achieve in my life. And one of them is to achieve a few goals through my writing and this blog in particular.

WordPress this morning sent me pretty report card of how the blog fared in 2013. It isn’t close to anything spectacular but well…it made me feel like a mini-rockstar! 🙂 And though I know it is all in good faith, here is the first resolution of the new year…

Blog Goals

Thank you dear readers for coming back to my blog. I hope to make it more fulfilling for you in the new year. Without spilling the beans over, all I say is that I resolve to write more, share more and involve more. 

Here’s to new beginnings and more warmth in the 2014.

Happy New Year


Let’s go for a drive!

So Mommy’s car has gone for servicing and the little man keeping up with his custom of going for a drive / walk in the morning insisted that we go out. It’s another thing that he howled from the balcony when I went down to talk to the driver who came to pick up the car. Standing with his nanny, V saw the driver take ‘Mumma’s Gaadi’ away. But then he wants to go on a drive now!!

“Go, get one of your cars…Mumma’s car has gone baby. How can we go on a drive now?” I say.

The little man walks towards his toys. He sifts through them and pulls out the biggest car he has in his garage.

With one hand he picks up the car and with his other hand he takes me to the door. He asks me to open the door and points to the stairs leading down to the road.

V is convinced that he can lend Mommy his car. After all, she’ll take him for drive na!

Well…I have to give it to the man’s sense of imagination and innovation!
