Knock Knock! Anybody there?

Hola all of you!

It has been quite a while since this blog saw any activity at all. To all of you who wondered/looked/mulled over/pinged me a huge sorry for no updates and a heartfelt thank you! I am very much humbled and honoured by the blog love 🙂  

The Avial family is doing quite alright and is still stationed in India, atleast the mom and Narad are.

The reason for an extention of their stay is an addition to the Avial household end of may/early june, combined with a severe sciatic pain(it can be a pain in the a**, really!) . The doctor’s in India advised against travelling and hence Avial amma made the decision to stay back!

It has been about a month now since I made the decision and it has taken this time to adjust to it 🙂  The kids are in a local play school and are liking it now although initially they had huge issues with everything. 

So that has been the reason for no activity on this blog. I am not sure how many posts I will be able to write, the reason being the laptop is not now tied to my neck 🙂  Hopefully I will be able to put in some update once in a while.

In case I am unable to be frequent, do keep us in your prayers girlies!  And folks that have my contact email/number, do keep in touch 🙂

Ciao for now,

      You have sent me another idea for names 🙂 Since I am here, not sure if the name would be Narad’ar’ or Narad’i’. Anyway, I was running short of names starting with ‘d’ or ‘ad’. Narad’ar’ might be the way to go 🙂

    • Shankari said,

      February 2, 2011 at 10:28 am

      Slowly getting better VV, although the pain hits me bad if I stress too much. Since I am at amma’s it helps in multiple ways. Hope everything is going great there. Na also misses little V quite a bit and keeps talking about all the playdates she wants to have after coming back!

      • VV said,

        February 2, 2011 at 9:57 pm

        going fine here- little one is getting to be quite a mischief! She has been sick a lot due to daycare and first winter- but hoping it eases. she actually instigates the fight sessions with V:) I sorely miss our gupshups and kiddos playdates! anyways being at mom’s is a help no doubt. my sister’s seemandham and valaikappu was conducted over last two weekends- and i missed having you attend it. I did get food from your recommended source for the event which was a HIT!! btw we will be in india for two weeks in feb- so if u need anything let me know and i can bring along…not sure how it will make it to bglore though…email me…u have my email id.

      • Shankari said,

        February 2, 2011 at 11:01 pm

        Little one’s are always full of mischief. Older ones somehow tend to be quieter and more responsible 🙂 I hope she feels better soon. I heard the winter’s are very bad there. I miss all our “dates” also there.. wanting it to become august soon!

        I will email you should I need something. Thanks for the offer!

    btw hubby suggestion for the name is something with a muni??? so it can be Naradmuni?? or maybe just with letter AA so it can be naradaa.
    Adding our suggestions to the suggestion box 🙂
    take care
