Well, so here I am, planning a housewarming, and hoping all of you will be able to attend. The place needs to be done up a bit more, before it is official, but you’re welcome to come around and tell me if there is more I could do 🙂

Thanks, Solilo, Indygurl, for all the encouragement…

And Dhirubhai and Ajit, for making me go green with envy 🙂

So….

Hi there, everyone 🙂  Glad to be here 🙂

    • Thank yo so much, Bones, such a pleasure to hear that 🙂

      • P.S. Quite a few people have moved to WordPress – is it better than Blogger?

        Like

        • Well it is a bit more complicated but yes, Bones, it has more options, esp. with replies to comments, page elements, stats, and more… most of which I am still discovering.

          Blogspot, by the way has its own wonderful benefits, and if your are comfortable with trying out new stuff, you should try wordpress. Actually it’s rather fascinating 🙂

      • Lol, I have just graduated to bikes, 🙂 🙂

        Rode my younger son’s new bike on first gear, over the weekend, in preparation for learning it so that I can gad about town. He is skeptical, but ok with it 🙂 So long as I promise not to ride it when he isnt home 🙂 Doesn’t trust me with it yet 🙂

  7. Ahan! They say there is no limit to what you can explore when the mind is without fear and yearning to learn 🙂

    You show us that every day.

    Blogger had too many constraints. And this blog looks very good. Plain white, simple and free. Suits your style.

    Happy blogging ma’am.

  8. Hey, loved your new home…great ideas, fresh colours, with lots of light and air! The header, the heading and the comments all look great. Should I think about moving too?(wondering to myself…)

    • Sindhu, do try it… make a blog and play around with it… and then decide.. that is what I did 🙂 If nothing else, you always have that option 🙂 And the best thing is this.. the way we can give more individual attention to each comment, which I really wanted to do, but could not, on blogger 🙂 Thanks for the lovely words for the new home 🙂

Now I take time to move around and find both you and IHM have moved!! This page looks good. I am sure you will be sprucing it up much more!! WordPress IS good!! Enjoy your new home! 🙂

    Thanks Shail 🙂 And it is a joy to see you here as Shail… 🙂 I am still missing so much, and a bit restless for it.. but I do make up by peeking in occasionally 🙂 Yes, WP is a better option, and yes again, much needs to be spruced up on this space… 🙂 Thank you for the wishes … and do enjoy your holiday too!
