Since I turned 40 in 2008, I had decided to do one new thing each year – something new that I had not done in past 39 years of my life. I could mostly keep that promise to myself and have perhaps done more in past 6 years than I did in last two decades. I parasailed, achieved a life long dream of publishing Ammi’s works online, had a fling with English Theatre which i intend to continue and went to Serengeti , Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro which was an amazing experience.
I never decide when the year starts as to what new thing I’d do during the year, but this year things fell in place and I learnt Urdu script which enhanced my understanding of the language many folds. Am glad I took out time, struggled, but learnt the script, this learning though, will be an ongoing process.
The year is going to be challenging; with Aasim leaving the town for higher studies, but I am looking forward to him going out and exploring the world. He will finally get the wings that he so deserves.
Woke up on my 46th birthday to delicious cupcakes that Tarique baked for me. Thank you sweetheart. I love it when you make things for me <3 The day was spent lazing around, with no specific agenda except to eat good food and we did do that – Pari treated us to lovely liver Pâté, and Bianca to awesome cookies when we went to pick up the Parsi dinner of Dhansak and Kebabs.
And yes, I did dress up for the evening
