Mother of tags!

Rajni has tagged me to name 5 of my own posts with the following criteria: the five have to be about
1)Family
2)Friends
3)Myself
4)My Love
5)Anything I like (my favorite post)

Family-Well I have written quite a few posts about my family but this one about the trouble my children gave my ageing father in law takes me back to the time my children were in their pre teens. Why did not time stop just there? I cherish the blind faith they placed in me and do wish that we had continued so for ever.

Friends-To be frank I have not written much about my friends who have been like family to me. It seems rather strange that I should have missed writing about them. May be I will do so soon. However I have written one about a colleague who could laugh at herself and I feel I have given her due credit.

Myself-Well, well my blog is almost an autobiography with most of the posts dealing with personal experiences but ‘Striking roots’ written in 3 parts depicts me as a young bride in Jamshedpur and I cannot believe that I really felt so out of place here.

My love-My husband of course! And I love pulling his legs. I’ve done just that in this post of mine.

My favorite post-‘Living Fossil’ evoked a lot of responses and is a clear favorite. However I also like this one a lot .

I have to tag 5 others including 2 new ones. Well I do hope they haven’t done it already. I tag hillg’mom, eve’s lung and artnavy among my older friends and pooh and parijatha among the new ones. No excuses and all of you must carry this forward if you haven’t done so yet.
