Moving.

Last day in this house. The movers will be here at 9 am tomorrow. This time tomorrow, we would be sleeping at the new place. Sigh. Two years of our lives packed in boxes and bags. I was on my feet all day today packing. Phew. Why do we have so much stuff? Whats the point? As my sister had warned me, kitchen is the worst room. Shes sure a wise one! Packing away the kitchen stuff seemed like a never ending job. Even now, I'm waiting for the dishwasher to stop so that I can pack away the rest of the crockery. If only we did nt have a stomach to be fed. Life would be so much better and simpler. Indha oru jaan vayaru irukke...

Will surely miss this little flat. The awesome view of the city from the living room window. The fabulous typical Swiss view from the other side of the living room. Snowy mountains, a farm with cows with bells, horses, apple trees,... The small kindergarten below and how Ashu watches the kids play. How she spots the horses and cows and the rare fox that makes an appearance and squeals with delight. How I go to the balcony and look down to see if the car is parked and Hd has arrived home, the full moon nights where we switch off all the lights, cuddle in the sofa together and watch the moon rise while I hum
"chandni raatein"...

This was Antus first home. Bye, bye Schulstrasse. You ll always be fondly remembered.

Good luck with the move. It's exhausting. Things just add up unbeknownst to you :) And the memories make it emotionally tiring.

Ashu's new hairstyle is cute, makes me feel light:)

Hope your new home as the fabulous view as well. My friend recently moved and she got a bunch of her friends to help her unpack. She is done unpacking in less than a week.

Do the same and throw a dinner party later:)

Am moving back to India in a month
and even though I lived here only
for a year, I seem to have accumulated so much stuff, that I plan to send lots of stuff thro' DHL!
Only then can i fit the 20 Kg in my
suitcases!

Moving houses before a baby was bad enough, moving houses with one, is terrible. And I can't begin to imagine what moving with two babies would mean! May you settle in SOOOOOON and yeah, it is a tug at teh heartstrings to move out of somplace you have learnt to love.

all the best, girl! we moved once and i had the excuse of having just delivered a baby so N handled it all. It was still a pain...so I can imagine how tough it is for you! I know how you feel about the house...I already have so many memories here and I'm going to miss it when we go back. btw, we're here till Aug...hafta meet once you settle down!

Good luck with the moving... it is hard for sure. (physically and mentally)
But on the brighter side, you rid of so much clutter while moving ... no ?

Hi,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Boo's Baby Talk!’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,
Ray
