B'day blues...

-2 gifts, 2 cards, 2 e-mail wishes, 3 phone calls
-1 e-card from my mom which I never actually received because my mom added an extra dot to my mail id (as usual)
-long distance call from my sis Su, cousin Mako and her mom
-1 sweet husband trying very, very hard to make the day special
- went to bed wishing, wishing my mom lived next door

Same day, two years ago,
-12 am sms "Arre crack happy b'day"
-6 am phone call my cousin Mako "yeh loosu, happy birthday kane"
-8am sms my sis Su "Yeh nut, happy birthday"
-10-12 e-cards
-big bouquet of flower on my desk
-distributing kaju roll to all my colleagues (yea, my work place was slightly crazy!)
-"yeh don't forget 5 pm treat in Kanti sweets!!" Stuffed ourselves with samosa and malai gulla.
-"Arghhhh!! I love the watch!! Thanks M and V"
-canteen aunty "evathu ninna b'day antha gothu ma, adikke sweet madthe"( I know today was your birthday, thats why I made sweet) (She told the same thing everytime someone's birthday coincided with her sweet making day!! But it made me feel good!!) Stuffed myself with canteen aunty's sweet
-carrot halwa and mirchi bajji by Mom, yep loaded myself with this as well.
-Went to bed taking 3 Pudin Hara's and feeling like the happiest girl in the universe, not one bit sad I had turned one year older!
