Life moves on, inevitably.

Life moves irrespective of the fact whether you want to move on or not. Things, circumstances, and situations change as a result thereof. The issues which you prayed for to vanish do vanish away with time and then you discover the prayers must keep going because there is always something to pray for.

5 things we love about staying in Preston #MondayMusings

It’s already a week!

We landed here in Preston, UK last weekend. Settling down has kept me busy and I am enjoying this process.

After giving us a warm welcome, Continue reading

One day, the newspaper was discovered… #MondayMusings

It was a day when lightning struck outside our apartment building with fire blazing all around and I called out to Dhruv to come outside in the balcony to watch what was happening. He refused stating he had just discovered the world of the newspaper asking me not to disturb him.

If you are wondering and feeling pity for me that I am living in a burnt down neighbourhood, then let me assure you the above big event happened many months ago.  Dhruv discovering the world of the newspaper was the big event.

Lightning! Continue reading

The fruit-bearing tree – Papaya

There is nothing special about the papaya in this photo but still, it held my attention because it is not everyday that I get to see a fruit-growing on a tree. This one was hidden as it was surrounded by vegetation.

Joining #ThursdayTreeLove, a photo feature on Parul’s blog.  It is hosted on the 2nd and the 4th Thursday of each month.
