Thought-full




I never thought a day would arrive when i would be asked to delve into my thoughts and pick out some thoughts already spewed out!!! Its like hunting in my wardrobe for that darn dress which of course has to be underneath the huge mountain of clothes(err..not a mountain...it just looks like one..i actually don't have enough clothes!! )...then you pull it out only to find the whole thing a bigger mess than it already was...

I guess you have got the picture...but ...but... this is exactly what the chirpy, young rayshma wants me to do...Sorry, rayshma, for taking my own sweet time to complete this tag...was catching my thoughts back :)


Now for my aalochane, revisited...gosh, it sounds suspiciously like an obituary notice for my blog, guys, i'm not going anywhere!!..:)

These are the rules of the tag:
Post links to 5 of your previously written posts. The posts have to relate to the 5 key words given : family, friend, yourself, your love, anything you like. Tag 5 other friends to do this meme. Try to tag at least 2 new acquaintances so that you get to know them each a little bit better.


Family...
i have yet to write about what a saint of a mother i have (though i was supposedly the reason for all that grey hair on her head, she is the youngest looking grandmom i know), my charming sisters who give me a complex but i would never have them any other way, both are amost perfect, the kinds you should be hating but are such nice people that you can't help loving them to bits. As for G, he is too precious to be blogged about...(though, sometimes I threaten him about it)...:D

When you have children you literally have your heart walking about...Read my unforgettable moment and my cubby tales to read why.
If you really want to read more, my family also feature in my renewal post, just after the death of a very close aunt and in my dreams for the next decade


Friend...

I find a friend everywhere...in my husband, my sisters, my neighbors,in a thoughtful tone, in my blog world, in the owner of a smile, in my thoughts...but this friendly gesture will always be close to my heart...


Yourself

Time to blow my own trumpet... this little letter I wrote would help you know what a pig i can be..a little addictive chat with myself, my first tag ...my ummm...tendency to forget...


Your love

I love visiting writer's island, sunday scribblers and Weekend wordsmith, so i came up with COLOURS OF MY MIND to pen down the thoughts and poems which flew as a reaction to these prompts...another loveis related to books.


Finito,...but not THE END...:)

thank you rayshma...and those who read them through...your patience is commendable and extremely flattering. My self-esteem has ballooned enormously...:P

In the mean time tagging

Prats : would love to read your past restropections..:)
Rambler...you would have loads to offer, i'm sure
Joy, ...will you do this, pls? :)
Guruprasad : i know, i know, you don't do tags...but we sure would love to read more about a daddy who is a veteran at blogging

You do your tags, call me when you are done... while i take my time to deflate back to reality...:)...

Preethi said...

I have been reading most of ur posts here. Finished it today and enjoyed it thoroughly! :) I especially liked ur son's first day in a new school... wonderful and emotional :)

Guruprasad said...

darn, i hate getting stuck in these situations!

i honestly just can't get myself to do tags. don't ask me why... maybe its my chronic laziness ;)

and i also realised that i don't have too many posts fitting these categories.... but i promise to look them up and pull out something. but i don't know when :P
