Hello lovely readers! This week’s gratitude post is coming to you on a Monday as opposed to the usual Sunday. The reason being I was in Bangalore this Sunday and apart from being socially busy, didn’t have access to WiFi. In fact, I haven’t opened my laptop since Thursday evening – something quite shocking. Anyway, without further ado, it’s time for me to reflect on all the things I am grateful for from 25th November to the 1st of December 2018.
Meeting a bunch of bloggers in Mumbai on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday as well as one who made a trip to Mumbai from Delhi – the lovely Shalini. It was nice to catch up with Shilpa a couple more times, Sunita, Damyanti from Singapore, and Kala as well as some I didn’t know all that well.
Meeting Smita – one of the first Indian bloggers I interacted with back in 2008 – for lunch mid-week
Buying so many books
Indian food thanks to mum and eating out
Finding a coffee shop close to my parents’ house and enjoying some downtime to myself in a quiet location. It’s something I do often at home and was missing it
Flying to Bangalore and discovering the air is slightly better than Bombay
Hanging out with the lovely Sreesha on Friday and for most of Saturday. We enjoyed long conversations, browsing through bookstores, good alcohol and food, lots of laughs and an entertaining show. It’s amazing how sometimes you feel connected to people when you both show each other your vulnerabilities
Surviving crossing the roads and footpaths in Bangalore – seriously, death traps everywhere!
Spending a couple of hours in Cubbon Park and admiring some amazing trees and architecture
If you follow my Facebook page or Instagram, you probably know I met other bloggers too on Sunday; however, that’s something for next week’s gratitude post. I am back in Mumbai and looking forward to packing tomorrow as I head back home on Wednesday. As much as I am grateful for all the things in the past few weeks, I am very excited to be going back home!
How was your week?
