Merry Christmas everyone!
I had decided early that I will not put up any Christmas tree or decoration this year. The reason is my 17 month old toddler who climbs places which we think impossible at his age. A decorated Christmas tree kept at any height would be too much of a temptation for him and I don’t want any untoward incidents when we are away at office.
I was not expecting any expensive gifts from the husband this year given that we are busy setting up our apartment. So I was shocked when he said he has ordered the kindle paperwhite for me. It arrived 3 weeks before my birthday and I was not at all sad that TH once again missed the idea of a birthday surprise. I have read books using it and has enjoyed the experience. Completing The Brothers Karamazov is my first priority and I have read around 90%; tremendous progress after I started reading on the kindle.
This is my cafe mango birthday cake from chef bakers at Bellandur. Since it is Christmas time, the cake came in a Christmas theme package :) We had a very quite Christmas and after the morning mass, we spent the day with my mother-in-law enjoying her vegetarian cooking ;) We had not kept the advent, so didn’t mind the lack of non-vegetarian food on Christmas day. It was my brother-in-law’s birthday on Christmas, so I ended up eating a lot of the cream cakes in the last few days.
This is the chicken salad that we had for lunch someday last week from Leon Grill, Indiranagar. This place is a tiny restaurant hidden in one of the by-lanes of Indiranagar and serves awesome burgers, rolls, salads etc. We got to eat some amazing food that day, but I am sure we will be going back for more!
Christmas 2015 is officially over for me and I have a hectic work schedule planned in the coming days. It is so sad that I have to work in this holiday season, but I hope to wind up a few things before new year so that I can celebrate it peacefully with my kids and family.
