Amazing people who make me go on n on n on:)

I miss You December!


Christmas is round the corner and this Christmas is making me kinda nostalgic.
From the last ten years, December has been a month that I spend in indulging n self pampering because my beloved is heavily touring during most of the peak winters*yes, I do wonder at his sense of timing too*.

December is the month then, when I would go out for coffee with friends...shop at the onset of “sale” across the counters...spend more time than usual with my students n get connected.
It also marks nights of me loving me.

I take out my double bed*got in dahej waale* soft satin cosy blanket and dig deep into it at the stroke of nine-ish each night for everyone would know her husband is not in town so she’ll retire early for the day.
I would have already checked in the morning in the newspapers*yes, that was THE only reason why I read them* what flicks would show on HBO or Star Movies*the only reason I view the idiot box* or if nothing suited my taste...get DVD’s of what did.
And from 9-11 n then again 11-1 n sometimes in sheer madness 1-3...I would sit before the television screen watching mush or suspense or simply nonsensical comedies.
I would even try semi horror is desperation days and then spend the last hour before falling into slumber in checking if someone is peeping from the other end of the bed or not.

There would be a big bowl of Act 2 popcorn or Lays chips sometimes*yes, the secret of me being in the shape that I am, is finally out ladies n gentlemen*...
Or a plateful of Maggie with Diet Coke loaded with ice*er..diet coz I would be on a supposed “diet”*
The lights would be dimmed...
There would also be my laptop on one side of the bed to write some blog post in case I feel inspired or to chat up with some lonely soul on Facebook after splashing all my madness on statuses.
Whoa...I would even do stupid quizes like ‘How sexy is your name?’ ‘When would you die?’ ‘What is your true calling?’ along with other insanities n even publish them to display how in need of a life I was!

A phone on one end*to yack with friends in case the ears n mouth felt too left out of the action while the eyes gulping down all the glory*...
The mobile on the other*btw conversing on sms when you get 500 msgs per day free is a great deterent to normal human social behaviour*...
A remote on my lap...for a CD playing in the backdrop...or visions appearing exotically on the screen...
I was almost a techie...hehe...well, almost!

N then at the day’s end*or rather the night’s* I would slowly cuddle up my own self n slide into a warm bed...missing my G a bit but feeling the ultimate pleasure of a week night well spent. It would be quite a contrary mood if the week day was substituted by a weekend n I’d be alone in the four walls then and in the mood of “life’s-not-fair”.

And often than never Life takes such a turn!
It’s been over five months of having Seeya.
One year now of she being on this planet!
No movies watched on the television during all these months of her sauntering into our lives.
Just four movies caught in the theatre*we watched a movie every Sunday n also during the weekdays if there were choices available...n now the average of one movie a month...tch, tch...ghor kalyug*
We have left Seeya alone just one night in five months for a party n two nights*half night actually* to watch two out of the four movies mentioned above.

Why am I relating all this here?
Coz December does not feel like December anymore...
No more bothered about how to look hot at the New year’s bash as I am so bothered round the clock about how to keep Seeya warm each moment.
No longer cuddling into the quilt but getting out of it every hour through the night to settle her layers in the crib, when she moans in sleep, to check if all is okay, feed her and make her cosy again.

No more luxury of taking steam baths at gym or sitting and frittering away time in the sun reading a best seller doing the rounds.
No more wearing new nail paints and watching them take their time to dry.
No more changing earrings to match with an outfit while going out or bothering to complement my purse to let it also breathe in fresh air out of the cupboard.

Yes, December has made me nostalgic!
December this year is not the same.
If you hear my sigh...I don’t know if I also ought to make you watch me hold my hand to my heart when she smiles n starts a new drama of her own.
I miss the stars on the screen or the narratives of authors opening the portals of my vivid imagination...
But then my little star twinkles a bit longer and suddenly the galaxy seems lit enough for now!:-)
But yes, good old days...
Often we do not realize how good a life we had till it swishes out of our hands for good!
Often we do not realize how good a life we are leading at present, till it also would swish out of our hand some day!

"There would be a big bowl of Act 2 popcorn or Lays chips' and watching no film to just a film is pure kalyg..kya hoga iss duniya kaa if we girls stop watching cinema! :P

We are in constant state of nostalgia. As a student you miss Junior school, in college you miss high school, while working you miss college life, when married you miss single life ... [you get my point!] ... I guess it is a bitter sweet feelings. As long as everything is a sweet and happy memory ... Nostalgia is also good for the soul [or so I think! :)]

AKSHAY SINGH said...

Forget the magic of december ...the cold b***h comes around every year ..you have the magic of Seeya to keep you warm for many more Decemebra and Januries .... muuuuah :-)

Pythoroshan said...

This is such a cool, lovely post. December is important for me too.. but for the opposite reason - its usually a month where i get a big unexpected kick in the bal.. in the ass.
so i prefer doing all that you said, be it the tv, the lays chips, the sms,Facebook and phone,but for the opposite reason.. to avoid the thunderbolts December inevitably lands on me.

it is indeed true that we never realise how good a life we have till its gone :)

JAGDISH BALI said...

Nice light read, and interesting too.

Mr. "Niraj" Lemon said...

ahhh...something in life happens for good...but u know life changes it really recalls some of the goood golden days... In fact after reading your post even i went nostalgic and went to my school days. Being from a Christian school we you use have a gala time during x'mas and the a good 10 break...Life changes but one thing that haven't is going to church every year on X'mas and lighting a candle...

Ria said...

Have a blessed & cherished winter with ur little one. :) Wish u all the happiness.

A said...

Trust me, December will be better than last years around Christmas.

You have Seeya.

Give it a few years, you would love December more than ever. I spend a lot of time with my daughter in December..great time to bond. :))

Devil Incarnate... said...

Hmmm y is it that we miss our bygones, though it was once our present!
Dec is one of sweetest month of the yr, romantic n festive n njoy this time with seeya :)

Sameera said...

So true.. December's are not the same. It was my birthday on 3rd, and i was stuck in office till 10 pm.. :( I missed the birthday celebrations I used to have in college days..

Miles Of Style said...

wow you just put into "exact" words what i tend to associate with Dec. Awwww sweets Im sure you have other things to look fwd to this year...and perhaps in the years to come you shall look back upon these days just as fondly as well...Hugssss.

Alka said...

Hope your dahej waala blanket is warm enough...lol. Its cold. And December isnt over as yet.
So true...that we never realize how precious and beautiful the present is until its over...
Yummy mummy..dazzle them all on the New Years eve.

suruchi said...

Hi Nads,
Yes...not getting to watch a movie in theatre is the modern day form of torture like that done in the gallows:(
I hope we all squeeze out time for ourselves from our schedules:-)

suruchi said...

Mr Happy...
Ji bilkul...dhanyavaad aapke marg darsha ke liye..
Mein bhool he jaate hoon ji..
Bas kabhi kabhi mere dil mein khayal aa jaata hain:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Tanvi,
You put it brilliantly honey!
I guess we are always in a constant state of nostalgia...
Even if not here n not now...I’d be missing something else somewhere else:-)
Thanks for clearing the air a bit
Big hug:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Biky,
Pata nahi kaun sa waala post u are referring to becoz when someone says THAT to me in capital letters...I just think of THAT!;-)

I am chillax baby...
Bas kabhi kabhi straight walk se walk down the memory lane ho jaata hain...
It takes very little for you to go from “Life rocks” to “Life sucks” n vice versa!

And woh sab quizes bandal the...
According to them I should have already been dead:-(
N watching the kiddy movies...OMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGG!
Yeh to meine socha he nahi the...
Abhi WOH din bhi aane hain!
Bhagwan mere raksha karna:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Akshay,
Yup..I didn’t say I want December back, didn’t I?
It’s a see saw..this feeling...comes n goes:-)

Awww...n miss ur mommy...come lemme give u a hug till u get to her...
Hypothetical hugs mein bhi bahut taakat hote hain:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Roshan,
Haaaaw...why is December mean to you?
It’s such a cute heart of a month otherwise...
Brings in the cuddles n blankets n slight shiver n warm fires...
I hope the kicks in the bal..ass..are lesser this year:-)

suruchi said...

Hello Jagdish,
Thanks for stopping by:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Sobhit,
Thanks for getting senti yaar...chalo koi to hua...
Waise since u baton my dreary thoughts here...u already enter the criteria of getting closer to do a guftago with me...a
Arre kabhi bahut man kare to sache dil se yaad karna...I’ll be there*read that as msg me on fb*:-)

I also loved those lines that u quoted...n also live by them now:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Niraj,
How sweet to go to the church n light that candle!
I am also from a convent but we generally used to have vacations at the time of christmas..though there used to be way too many celebrations prior to it...so I guess the fascination for Christmas n December grew from there:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Ria n Devil Incarnate,
Thanks for the wishes lovely women...
I guess time to move on to welcome the new n keep a happy memory for the old...that’s the way of life, right?:-)

suruchi said...

Hi A,
Wow...a little more insight into your life for a change...
So you have a daughter too...
It’s time now we parents bonded..lol:-)
I am sure what you say will happen..is happening too...just takes a little time for things to sink in with me:)

suruchi said...

Hi Sameera,
Awww...Happy belated birthday baby!
Haaaaw par sab ko office mein bataya kyon nahi ke birthday hain?
Everyone deserves a break on their bday yaar!
Wish u all the joys n hope u celebrated it well at least on the weekend...
These are your days to live n laugh n love...don’t let them fritter away too much in the humdrums of everyday:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Persis,
I guess then it is true that great minds think alike...
I wish great thinking minds would look alike too n by default then I would get some of the drop dead gorgeous looks that u adorn:-)
December is special for many of us in more than one ways...
May we all find our peace:-)
Hugsssssssss!

suruchi said...

Hi Alka,
Woh dahej waale blanket ke kahani to intee lambi ho gaye ke ek naya post he likhna pada uske liye...
It is also warming in this cold cold month to have a baby giving you the tightest of hugs...
Forgot to mention that in the post:-)
Preparing to dazzle:-)
Thanks a bunch!
