CTT: Do you mean it?

So, here I am on a weekend, plonked on my balcony swing with nice hot chocolate and a plate of shortbread.

I take a bite of a yummy shortbread, drop a few crumbs on my laptop that has a few social media sites open and very frequently I read people on social media sharing "I would travel and gather memories than gather a huge bank balance"

I wonder, how many of them really mean it.

I mean, honestly I can touch my heart and say, I would rather have a huge bank balance, a nice house of my own and limited travel memories than be broke, on the road and a lot of memories when I am old.

It's a personal opinion though.

#Dashtalks Hi House

The situation was like this

Last evening, the husband was supposed to be at work and was coming home late, we spoke about it on the phone a few hours back and I reached home earlier than him.

I unlock the door of my house and enter the house, which was as expected, Dark

Then just for fun I said loud...mind you real loud "Hi House"

And deep inside my master bedroom a muffled sound comes "Hi, You are back"

I was stunned, scared, and was about to shit bricks and run ouy of the house when the husband emerges from the bedroom wrapped in a blanket with a stupid grin on his face "I thought I should come home and work, but I slept"

It was a mixed emotion moment for me - Relief, Anger, Dumb, Scared.

For one full moment, I couldn't trust if that blanket wrapped thing is my husband or some entity, but that stupid grin confirmed that this can't be no ghost. Phew!

I swear to the heaven up above, that never, never ever will I say "Hi House" again in my life

Hi 2017....Ok Bye 2016

This is the mandatory new year post

Dear 2016, 

I loved you. but I think I would move on.
You were nice and everything. You did give me a lot of memories

But 2017 is giving me more hopes.


So that's how we parted ways with 2016

Why did I break-up with 2016?

It was well...nice...yeah that's it.
I grew up a bit. There were few significant decisions in my life. I traveled less than I did in 2015. My friends have got very busy in their lives and we hardly got to catch-up this year. My health was not that good most of the year.
We lost a few people in my country, which was pretty sad

Well, a few good things did happen; I went for a half month long vacation to one of my bucket list destination "Ladakh". I got creative and made some super cute DIY decors for my house and....this year ended too soon.
One really good thing this year was that it did keep up all my resolutions that I had made last year. 

2016 Resolutions

More attention to Rantzz of A Drama Queen: I did write a lot in this blog

One Week One post: I promised myself 48 posts by the end of this year. But, I almost doubled it up. 90 posts in Rantzz of a Drama Queen and 112 posts in my other blog at the end of December 2016 *applause*

But, I think I was over 2016 and he had to go. long.....

I have been told to make just three resolutions, its easier to remember and to manage so.

Hello 2017 *winks* 

This is our agenda for the year,

* Write a lot in both the blogs: By the end of the year, from May onward, I started writing much lesser than I used to. I just made excuses to not write. This year I am sincerely going to try again. Amen!

Shop Less, Save More: I impulsively shopped way too much in 2016. This year I am going to try hard not to. I have started making amends too, so that looks like a good start for now

Read more books and, complete at least 3  TV series: Last year, I did read but very less. I started seven TV series and completed just two, which is bad.

Now, 2017 I want you to be nice and bring me and my family a lot of good things, great news, plenty of money and a lots of peace of mind.

I love you already
