Errands, Shopping and a disappointment…




Nopes! I didn’t do the laudry. In fact, Mummy hates it too.

This is a picture from one of her inspired days, when she’d decided enough is enough and the cupboard needed tidying up. But as far as I remember, that was like years ago!

Funny in a way, considering she is so fussy about how the house looks and is constantly cleaning, vacuuming, dusting and tidying up. Laundry is something that’s LAST on her ‘TO DO’ list anyday, though.

The other day she did try to clean up. To be fair to her, it wasn’t her fault. She was all set to tidy up the clothes cupboards so we can donate what we do not need to some organization that collect them for less fortunate people. She even had some cartons ready to pack everything in.

But Shadow protested. He insisted Mummy should just concentrate on snuggling close to him till he gets better. He was pretty insistent. As you can see in my earlier blog-post he threatened to ship himself out in those boxes if Mummy continued to ignore him.

Ultimately, Shadow won. The cupboards are as messy as usual, but Shadow is much better. No sign of that cold. But he still is having some ‘I’m not so good today’ days in between ‘I’m totally ok and wanna play’ ones.

For now he is just on some anti-acid medications so he doesn’t throw up and vitamin supplements to boost his immunity. Nothing much to worry. Just that it doesn’t feel right when our super active puppy boy isn’t inclined to be as active as usual.


It’s shopping time these days!

The entire world is erupting in discount sales….The Huge Lifestyle and Pantaloons sale, The Great CP (Connaught Place) Sale and our absolute favorite – The irresistible Landmark Bookstore sale.

We can now boast of yet another loot of books we have absolutely NO time to read but that we have placed at the top of our ‘To Be done soon’ list!




There was this book - an Agatha Christie Omnibus – that was being sold at an impossibly discounted price. But Mummy didn’t get it because she wasn’t quite sure if we already owned all of the four books included in it or we had just read them earlier.

So she hid that book deep within a huge pile on display hoping no one would find it!! Her plan was to check our home library and then go get it in case we do not have all of them!

We checked – we DO NOT own them. Not even one. We had just read them earlier from our borrowing library.


But that was on Sunday and today is Tuesday! And neither she nor Daddy has found the time to go back to the store. Believe it or not, Mummy is still hopeful! She’s done it earlier, this ‘hiding books in large book-stores’ and ‘going back later after checking’ thing! Apparently it’s worked on a number of occasions!

But I’m not quite sure this time. It’s a 70% off sale and there are an incredible number of bibliomaniacs rummaging through the shelves.

Someone must have surely found it by now. Obviously, not buying it that day was a great loss!

We are so happy to read that Shadow is feeling much better. I always agree that when one can lay and relax, it's way better than doing work!

Shadow so happy to hear you are feeling better. I think Mom or dad should make time to go back and see if that book is still there. I bet it is!!

Good to see you getting better, shadow. We all hope Mamma gets her book in the store...keeping my fingers crossed!:)

Glad Shadow is feeling better....and cuddles definitely rates much higher than laundry. Also, cupboards have doors to hide the mess. That's our theory anyway.
