Europe Trip: Day 1 - Journey + arrival in London

Its 5 am by London time but its 9:30 by Indian time and we have been awake for the past 30 min. We arrived here at 7:10 pm (UK time). I guess we were lucky that our immigration check went quick and the moment we arrived at the baggage claim centre we saw our suitcase coming down. So we were out of of the airport in flat 25 min of arrival.

The journey in the plane was very good. Half the aircraft was unoccupied so hubby went and even slept on the three seats in the middle. I tried to sleep but just couldn't at all so I whiled my time by watching 4 movies on the onboard entertainment system. And thanks to Air India I finally managed to see "Rock On" :D

One of the attendants was very nice and helpful. The food was decent. Though service wasn't that great.

I tried to help a mommy on board out by distracting her 13 month young baby and playing with him because he had been giving a hard time to her. So when I offered to help, her eyes welled up and I saw her wiping her tears. I felt really bad for her and the baby because it wqas evident they both were having a bad time on the flight. She was traveling alone with the baby for the first time.

While we were waiting for Saurabh, a friend with whom we would be staying the night, to come and pick us up we tried to take a stroll at the airport. Had heard so much about the London heathrow that its so huge. But when we took a walk we didin't find it so. It was only when Saurabh came and he told us that this was just one of the terminals and there are total of 5 such terminals that I understood how enormous the airpot is. There were so many multilevel parkings and I loved ogling at the lovely cars lined up in the marking while we were going towards our car.

So today we shall head out for sightseeing and hopefully I will be able to write more again by end of the day if I get access to the net since am not carrying my laptop.

So keep hanging. There's lot more coming up your way :)

We are going on a summer...err autumn holiday!

Yes we are. Me and hubby are off for a short holiday trip to europe starting today.

We are sitting in the plane as I write this waiting for the flight to take off.

I'm really really excited about the trip.

This is the first time we are going for a holiday without Betu. Ever since we decided about just two of us going, there has been a great turmoil in our minds.

He has gone to Bangalore along with his Dadi-Dadu to spend time with his cousin Aryan and chachi chachu. He was mighty excited but a little sad too. But we could definitely make out this time that he is a really mature kid for his age.

Ok..flight take off announced and have to switch off the phone now. So more later.

Good news or bad news?

Do you think its good news or bad news when you get a dress from someone which is one size larger than your size, atleast you think that is your current size, but it fits you perfectly?

:) :(

What do you do when... get close to 250 mails a day on your official mail ID and none of them are spam or can be ignored?

I just go mad everday and feel so mentally drained out by my EOD.

And no. I don't work at a call centre as someone thought when I was talking about this with that person :D

Reliving my childhood - Part 2

Today Betu made me and hubby play a game with him which again took me to my childhood.

Remember the following lines?:

"Akkad bakkad bambey bo,
Assi nabbhe poore sau,
Sau mein laga dhaga,
Chor nikal ke bhaga,
Saanp ne khaaya biscuit
Madam bole very good"

Yaad aaya? :)

We used to put forth our hands with fingers spread apart. One person would say out these lines while tapping fingers of all the players and the finger on which the word "good" ended, we had to fold that finger. So the person whose all fingers would get folded first would win.

Any other similar game you used to play in your childhood?
