A new fever

My trip to Pune last week was more than justΒ fun-filled. I met lot of school friends after around say 2-12 years…yes..after 12 years also !! It was no doubt a great time with friends with whom you’ve spent your precious childhood days πŸ™‚ and last week I was spending time with their kids and listening to their interesting blabber and hearing their gurgling laughs πŸ˜› ..one of my friend’s daughter was so surprised to know that I was her mum’s school friend..very innocently she asked my friend: mumma,that means me and Aisha will also meet when we grow this big ?Β Kids and their cute questions πŸ™‚

Childhood is so precious..all the time learning and forming…it’s an experience in itself to spend some time with a child and see what are his/her views about things…those with children here would understand what I mean…

Any way, so the new fever that I was talking about is: Quilling craft. Apart from meeting my old friends and having fun doing simply nothing in particular I learnt quilling craft from my kid sisters at my aunt’s place. These girls are 10 and 6 and they know a lot more craft than I’ve done in my entire life,no really !

Some interesting crafts that they have done :

Punch Craft
3-D quilling

And yes the quilling fever has caught me and I’m totally into it these days πŸ™‚ Loving every moment of quilling…it’s real fun..Surprisingly I thought it’s a new stuff and was baosting about it to my friends here,like Varsh,they said they’ve already been there and done that 😐 So may be I’m the last one to put my hands on this craft…oh so what ! At least now I know πŸ˜‰

Oh and how can I forget these ? Umm….yummmm ! They say it’s Pune’s famous biscuits and one should not miss them πŸ™‚ So I got 2 packets of these and now relishing with my green tea while I write this blog πŸ˜‰

The Pune Fame

All in all I had a great time in Pune and a day in Mumbai πŸ™‚ How was your weekend/long weekend ?

  1. Yeah…had A Jr been a bit older he’d get scandalised seeing us go all freaky and huggy with each other…it was indeed fun to meet up after so long…didn’t feel like it was 12 yrs though, did it??

    I have to admit I did a lot of that Quilling stuff, but none of that was as superb as these girls did! And it was not 3D..the concept is new to me.

    The cookies look good. But if I had to pick something from Pune, there are no ways about it. I’d buy the Chitale’s Bhakarwadi. I love it so much I ask my BIL very blatantly to bring it for me whenever we’re going to meet πŸ˜€

    1. oh of course I did pick up bakarwadi and amba wadi too πŸ™‚ Didn’t want you guys to be super jealous of me hence didn’t post πŸ˜‰

      1. Good girl..without that the trip to Pune is incomplete…and FYI…i’m not jealous…2 more days to go…and I’ll have an endledd stock of it back home. (Though I’m trying very very hard to cotrol and not eat them. Extra calories are not needed!! :P)

        1. oh please don’t tell me that you’re fat ! you’re so maintained having junior A !
