Miss these

I am gonna be missing these from next month -

1. Luxury of an inhouse maid (Gladys) -
Gladys stays in the servants quarters outside my house but within the same compound. She is my maid cum nanny. She keeps my house clean & also takes care of kids while I am @ work. She is supported by another maid who washes the clothes, irons them, cleans the yard, does the dishes, waters the garden & cleans my car. Glayds is there @ my beck & call whenever I need her for any help. She is quite good with kids & my daughter just adores her. We are gonna be missing her a lot.

2. My Gym instructor - Ross
He is one helluva of guy! He is around 50+ but so physically fit. His classes are so much fun. I try my level best never to miss his classes. He has a big fan club & makes hi impact aerobics soooooooooo interesting. He has helped me shed those extra calories after my 1st delivery. Now Im in the process but not yet reached there. Im gonna miss his work out.

3. My office room -
It is the best room one can ask for! I spend most of my time during the day here. It is huge, well ventilated, decorated with some plants & paintings. And it is almost the size of my bosses' room! And there have been many jealous colleagues as I have a this wonderful room just for myself! Whilst it offers me privacy, it also gives me a good view of what is happening outside the office & what my assts are up to!!! :D

4. My car -
I luv my 4X4 ......Toyota Rav 4. I enjoy its height, size, sun roof etc. It was such pleasure to drive it esp during my pregnancy where I had a huge huge tummy (due to water retention).

5. Being a compere -
I have hosted many cultural shows here & have a big fan club! Infact some friends even address me as "The official MC"! My shows include Diwali programs, Onam programs, fund raising programs & the latest was when I was the MC when Usha Uthup was here. Have also done some shows impromptu. I also got an offer from a professional troupe to be part of them.

6. Religious events -
I am part of a sahasranam group where we meet up all weekends & recite the same. I m also gonna miss the satsangs & other special events @ the temple. Satsangs have been so energetic & lively here.

7. Garden -
I have a huge garden in front of my house. It has a nice lawn & a nice kitchen garden in the backyard. Kids love this space to run, play & explore. They r really gonna miss it! And I will also miss the luxury of living in an independent house.

8. Winter -
Tho I used to hate winter initially, past 2 winters I have started to enjoy the same. However I still prefer summer but not the humidity.

9. Rooiboos -
This is herbal tea or bush tea. Not many like this but I just love it! I started drinking this during my pregnancy as this is supposed to be cafine free. Ever since I have been drinking only this & just love it! Ofcourse if its not avlb, I resort to the ordinary one.

10. Social life -
We have had a hectic social life here. Have enjoyed hosting the parties thoroughly & also being invited for the same. Sometimes weekends r much more hectic than the weekdays, due to our high social commitments. Have really enjoyed the same! :)

    H2bee: Wow you are a person with so many talents girl. Put a vidoe clip for us and we cna enjoy it too.

    I know how it feels when we change rooms. Damn coworkers.

    Missing you nanny can be tough but life goes on right.


    Why do u have to miss all these. Are you planning to relocate somewhere??

    From your post seems like you are moving... Well moving is always painful because you will miss many things but once you get accustomed to the new place you will love that place too... Good luck!! :D

    I guess you are relocating. Sorry you cannot take your Nanny, especially if she is good with the kids. By reading this post I don't think it will take you too long to start a new fan club and be on the social scene.I think you are going to shine no matter where you go.thats your personality.

  • At 1:11 PM, Blogger Drama Div@ said…

    i wish you good luck in whatever endeavor you will be pursuing...

     
  • At 1:16 PM, Blogger Patty said…

    I would miss all those things too, but I think the maid most of all, especially since your little ones are not old enough to pick up after themselves much.

    Maybe all your party planning and social activities will be of use when you are back home.

    I guess I too missed out something?these all sound great and I'm assuming you are relocating.Nannies as good as you seems to have found are really a boon,too bad you can't take her with you!You sound like a active fun person,so I'm sure wherever you re you are going to have a blast!

  • At 3:55 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    first time this website, i am too in US moving to India this year end. i am surprised you people say nanny is being missed : lol :
    moms need to be with kids during formative years of development, if you feel work is more important, well, i disagree 100%. Listen to http://www.drlaura.com show.
    I was an engineer working before my pregnancy, and decided to take care of kids for at least first 8 years at home. Fortunately my husband's salary can support our family.

    i know you will argue otherwise all moms who work, but come on..
