Fifteen minute walk to office was no longer lonely – with dad accompanying me, carrying my lunch bag reminding me of the good old school days when he used to accompany me to school every single day.
House is not messy anymore (for a few days atleast) – no dirty clothes in the laundry basket, no evidence of dust, all the kitchen racks and utensils washed, cupboards cleaned, bed spreads washed and straightened – with mom going on cleaning spree looking at the condition of the house just-cleaned-by-me.
Wardrobe and dressing table looked totally messed up – with sis looking out for my new stuff and trying them out.
Kitchen smelled wonderful and my tummy was never left hungry– with mom taking over kitchen and cooking.
House was no longer quiet in spite of the fact that TV was given a full term rest for the past five days – with all of us talking non-stop as if they was no tomorrow.
Hall was filled with number of packages and bags lying around – with so much of shopping me and sister did. We have got new hand bags, slippers, tops and we even shopped some sarees 😀
Oven was very busy baking many many goodies – with me trying to impress my sis with all the recipes that were a huge hit recently.
Husband was given a break from my constant talking/asking him to talk (read bugging :P) – with me targeting my mom, dad and sister for everything.
Many Volvo buses were boarded and many new roads were explored – with me taking my family on daily trips around the place all alone!
Different types of cuisines were tried – with all of us either eating out for dinner or preparing something fun at home.
Hundreds of pictures were clicked alongside the wild animals and during the safari – with all of us visiting Bannerghatta National Park. Parents re-lived their childhood especially with dad getting very excited to pose for snaps next to animals 😛
Each day ended very peacefully – with mom on one side patting me to sleep telling some of my very favorite childhood stories. (I still make my mom tell stories to me 🙄 I am child at heart you see, even after reaching 25) and sister on the other side.
Today I woke up to an empty, silent house with my parents gone back last night.. I am missing them terribly. It’s going to be a day or two before I am back to my own self. And who knows I may go visit them this weekend again 😛
