    His comp for a retro item? Ha ha!
    Looking at the variety of pickles, I am coming over to your place soon for curd rice!

  2. Praveen

    you seem to be a good homemaker too 😀

    books under bed-that didn’t come as a surprise to me 🙂

    you hate washing and doing the dishes?- Catch hold of the man 😛

    What is a thokkara kallu doing in an apartment and I wonder where you place it?

    Different colors for different rooms is what I like too.

    The spouse and my purse was interesting 🙂 , but I didn’t like the question, tags can be crazy at times.

  3. lol that’s a long tag and has too much info :D..

  4. Electric Toothbrush! Whoa! I didn’t even know something like this even existed! I guess I am becoming ancient! 😛 😀

  5. Will ask my fiancee to take this tag after we get married 😉

  6. priyaiyer


    you are most welcome, girl, to come over any time! 🙂
    his comp IS a retro item.. come, see for yourself 😛


    umm, i am an average homemaker.. i dont consider myself a real good one, but i do try 🙂 doing the dishes – the man already does that for me.. 🙂
    LOL at ur reaction for books under the bed…
    thokkara kallu is a retro thing nicely fitted in one corner of a bathroom… that’s the beauty of it all.. 🙂

  7. priyaiyer


    hee hee… nice timepass it was 🙂


    he he.. i knew it did exist.. never used one, though! 🙂


    sure thing! does she blog, or at least read your blog? just curious to know…
    btw i could make out that you love her A LOT and can’t wait to get married… lucky gal! all the best! 🙂

    • she started reading because of my blog 🙂 And I hit the writers block now…what timing :D…yep I do love her a lot and though this was an arranged match, I realized I couldn’t have found someone better :)(Am not a nice guy and all..just that my parents beat me to it 😉 )

  8. priyaiyer


    its average-sized, i would say… will post a pic when time permits 😛

  9. Hey Priya!

    Been a while since I visited…work’s been crazy and I have been barely writing myself 😦

    Nice tag this is and even in such small things it is so easy to see the person you are…I believe our homes are a reflection of our own selves and mental states…and you seem to be a very sweet clean person if I was to just look at this tag and speak 🙂

    Hey btw, there is surely nothing like doing up your own garden or home but my friends have started My Sunny Balcony (not sure if you’ve heard of it) and they do up small balconies very beautifully and help with maintenance too! Do check the site out at least once…they are doing it purely out of goodwill for nature…

    Have a lovely long weekend! What plans btw?

    • priyaiyer


      ya, i noticed there were no new posts up on ur blog 😦

      thanks for the kind words… i don’t think i am THAT good a housekeeper.. i barely scrape by average.. that too with help from the man 🙂

      would love to get my hands on some plants and begin our balcony mini garden, but at the same time, would love some help and advice on what will go and what will not.. will check out the link for sure.. seems to be lovely and will be helpful to us… thanks a lot 🙂

      yes, lovely, long weekend.. no plans as such… just planning to chill out and enjoy myself with the spouse:)
