I gave birth on March 29 and it was a high and low experience (you can read all about it here). I had to go through real testing times then but Alhamdulilah! it all went fine and thinking about the fact that it could have been worse I am thankful to Almighty for whatever i have! Some relatives from my in-laws had come from India to meet my son and I was really happy!
After that I took 2 months leave from my office. I am really thankful to be living with my parents, without their support I don’t know what I would have done. My Dad and Mom were having leave at their work places, my sis was on vacation from school and so I had lot of help during the initial stages. I would have loved if my hubby could help too, but sadly he was just assigned a new task at his workplace and couldn’t get take leave. Therefore I didn’t want him to lose his sleep and asked him to sleep in separate room. I knew he was sad about this too but well, I guess that’s life! We were not able to spend much time together and so, we would try to make most out of it during the weekends!
If you read my post on baseless traditions of India, you would understand when I say my April and May months were spend mostly buried at home and I almost thought I was gonna lose my mind! Soon after that I had to join back for work, i felt like i just couldn’t enjoy the vacation with my son properly.
On June 5 was my parent’s wedding Anniversary and we made them this card. My sister helped me here as it was after a long time that I used my artistic talent but they were happy with the card.
I also baked them a cake. For the first time in my life, my cake came out perfect!! I know my decoration was dump! But still it tasted yummy!!
June 16 was my birthday and my hubby gave me the biggest surprise of my life. I was expecting him to forget my birthday like the last 2 years but he remembered this year. He bought home this big yummy cake and gifted me a coral ALDO Smoldt Satchel I always wanted.
My sister made me this cute card even though it was her exam time. I just love handmade cards. She is such a sweetheart and an idiot! She comes up to me on my birthday morning and tells me, ‘Abi, I have planned a surprise for you, so be surprised okay??’!! Lol! I love her!!
One of my close friends, Alia bought me this cute card and picture frame with our family snap. It was such a lovely gift!
That’s how half of this year went for me. I have tried to make it brief as much as possible. Hope you didn’t get bored with my rantings! How was your half year? Do let me know in the comment section below!
Have a wonderful day!
