Diwali week-end

A Diwali to remember...

These are just some of the sweetmeats that we had at home... I had such a fantastic time in East London. It was just what I needed, because I'm feeling so refreshed! The best part was being with the family. It was a very busy day... we were invited to my uncle and aunt's place for lunch. All I can say is - WOW - the food was DELICIOUS!

We went to mandir (temple) in the evening. It was so lovely - the warmth that exuded in the mandir was amazing. Everyone was in such a joyous mood, and everywhere you looked, people were hugging and wishing each other. I met so many people from the community, including friends I havn't seen in a while.

Two of the cutest kids I know - Nirmal & Nishani Jeevan


Our garden was looking particularly gorgeous this week-end...
especially the roses....
