The year that went by - 2014

Last year was a mix of happenings. Well, so is every year! Gist of them chronologically (inspired from Ani) for posterity.

Jan -  High point was completing the blogathon successfully.

Feb - Celebrated parents wedding anniversary together. Happy times. Made new friends.

March - Started swimming classes for Sid. Had a low key celebration on his birthday. Lost a cousin and Bhaiya's little one. Tragic. Ani had asked me to write a letter to Sid on his birthday - which I hope to do at least during the blogathon.

April - Trip to Kannur. Family still coming to terms with the loss.

May - Back to moms place. Joined a swimming class there (although we could go only for 5 days) to help Sid get comfortable in water. Learnt swimming (if I can call mine so) - this was something I thought I can never do in life. Was able to help Sid with his swimming after we came back. He is only getting better by the day now!

June - Sid joins regular school. Huge change from the earlier alternate education system he was going to. He adapted quickly. Got myself a work from home job. Teaching online. Love my job!

July - Crossed the age I was dreading to. Nothing much happened. I was getting more involved with my work.

Aug - Trip to Coorg with friends. Had fun.

Sep, Oct -Enjoyed Golu (and loads of food) at mom's place. Took a break from work (that's the best part of my job). Little Sid started going down to the play in our apartment on his own.

Nov - My brother came to India after a long time. Had an amazing time with family! (Re)Started waking up early and jogging. Joined back to work.

Dec - Lost another cousin. Christmas vacation and New Year at Kerala. Spent quality time with family  although the mood was grey.

Looking back, I can only think of how fast an year seems to have whizzed past.  I should definitely take time to write more often.

 Sid is a big time Lego boy. When he is at it, he is in his zone. He can sit, sing to himself and do this for hours together. The focus...
