Ricky has gone back home and the house is suddenly so quiet we are wondering if it was as quiet before he came a week back.

October is nearly over. After two super hectic weeks, we are trying to get back to routine work, blogging and everything. Typical of this time of the year in Delhi, there is a pleasant chill in the morning air. We have decided to snuggle on the blanket that Ricky used during his stay. It hasn’t been to the cleaners yet and it still smells of him.

18th of October was his Dad’s birthday. We are so proud that he learned everything that we tried to teach him – pottery painting & cursive writing among other things – and had his own gift for his Dad ready on time. And hey! He even composed his first blog post.

Well, he doesn’t really understand yet what blogging means but he was interested to write his story when we told him a number of people would read and appreciate it. We are hoping this will inculcate in him a habit of journal keeping which we think is one of the best things a child can learn. Not only does it encourage you to improve your handwriting but it also makes you dream, which is so important if you want to really achieve something big in life. Besides, your diary can be your best friend in times of need when you are all grown up and need to vent your feelings without telling the whole world. It really helps.

 

So, starting today, we shall be hosting a few blog posts from our guest blogger Ricky. Hope you enjoy these posts as much as we did putting them together.

 

 

Have a great week ahead,

Ginger, Buddy and Shadow

Those were lovely thoughts and presents that Ricky had for his dad.

We do hope he takes your words to heart. It is so much fun to go back and read all the details that you might have forgotten had they not been written down at the time.

Wirey woof,
