Mother’s Day


Good evening everyone, and to all mothers, Happy Mother’s Day πŸ™‚

To my mummy, thank you for always being around when I need you, and for always being able to comfort me when I feel like the world is about to collapse. Yu have been a great source of strength to me, especially over the past few difficult years. Yes we may fight, and drive each other crazy, but I will always love you. Happy Mother’s Day

To all mothers, first and foremost thank you for having us. Mums will always have a special place in all our hearts. They do so god damn much for us, even before we officially become part of the world. So please, never ever forget about your mum. yes you’ll fight with her, I know I do, but that’s normal, everyone will fight with each other, what really matters is how you feel towards each other, how you treat each other on a regular basis and most importantly, that you never take each other for granted. It’s the little things that matter the most. You can buy her expensive gives on those “special days” like today, but what I’ve found is that it truly is that thought that you put into a gift that matters, not how much cash you put into it. It may sound childish, but I still love asking cards for people and find that those are the things that they appreciate they most. An original gift is way more appreciated than something you purchased. Of course the best would be to give both πŸ™‚

Anyway, before I sign off, here’s a shout out to all my “second-mums” who have come in during the 22 years of my life, They may have not been in my life at the same time, but all have played a significant part at when they were in my life.

Sheka – my no.1 aunt. the one who stayed with us until I was six and I would sneak into her room when my sis snuck into my parents room at night. She is still a big part of my life, and I would like it to always be like that. I know it hasn’t always been perfect, and there were a few years that we grew a little apart, but I’m not going to let that happen again. Btw, Sheka is my word πŸ™‚

Kak Tinah – she was more than a maid, she was with us for 21 years. She saw me grow up, I called her Nina. She knew what I liked, she knew how to drive me mad. But she always took care of me.

Masiji Amarjeet, Nindy, Kulwant & Baldish, I may not be as close to you guys as I wild like to be, but I will be asking an effort to change that. Thank you all for always being around to support me when I’m down, and he me get back up. The four of you have been great sources of strength. Yes we do irritate each other from time to time, but that’s what happens in a family πŸ™‚

Aunty Vim – thanks for all the help you have given me over the years, I’m so happy that you have returned into my orbit. I love talking to you, you always are able to relate and understand. Thank you πŸ™‚

Aunty Prema – aunty Prems I relatively new to the list, becoming close during the SPM years by torturing us on Saturdays during Add Math lessons. She is kind and generous and so very organised, and not to forget her cooking is to die for. She may come of a little strong but her heart is always in the right place. πŸ™‚

Roxane Tiana Picard – now Rocky, you were a major source of support and comfort to me in my first year at MUWCI, you may be younger to me, but I will always think of you as my senior, my big sis, the one who always knew how to comfort me when I was down, who baked a cake to celebrate the 410, always encouraging me, always knowing what to say. Thank you for being there for me, I miss you so much.

Thank you all for being in my life,



Straight From The Heart,
