My Birthday – The Highs & the lows – Part 1

It was my birthday on Friday, 21st March. I was very excited from Thursday onwards as I received the courier from India on Thursday early morning. When we opened the garage door to leave for work, we saw courier delivery man standing there. We kept the boxes in the garage & left for work as we were getting late. Whole day, I was looking forward to going home to open the boxes. After work, I had salon appointment, so I went there for couple of hours. Then we went for dinner and by the time we reached home it was 9.30 PM and we were dog tired. Still, we opened the boxes, unpacked the stuff and then hit the bed straightaway.For those who want to know, the courier had sweaters, 4 pairs of jeans, 4 pairs of sandals, Indian outfits, Holi sweets – Ghevar and sweet biscuits, Surat famous Khari, Coco making packets, glass stand, onion chopper etc πŸ™‚

The courier boxes

PK woke me up at 12.00 AM sharp to wish me. I was unable to open my eyes because he switched on the lights. He had beautiful diamond earrings in his hands for my present, I thanked him, we hugged each other & went back to sleep again πŸ™‚

Present from PK πŸ™‚

Next morning, I woke up & checked my phone. there were so many missed calls from India & so many messages wishing me β€œHappy Birthday”, it was really a good start of my day. I was happy throughout the day seeing so many people showering their wishes and blessings through messages or by calling me. All the whatsapp groups that I am part of changed their group name to β€œHappy Birthday TP”. It feels good when people show their affection & love, It feels good when you know you are important part of someone’s life, It feels good to be pampered and loved by everyone close to you on one same day πŸ™‚

At work also, it was double celebration as I completed 3 years in this company on my birthday. We went for Italian lunch, one of my co-workers gifted me pink nail-paint, few others gave me a pretty orchid plant which I have taken home & asked PK to water it regularly πŸ˜‰ I received an 3 years milestone award and medical check-up & meal that I can claim upto certain amount as recognition for my dedication to this company.Β  I left home early after lunch. PK also came home early with cake. It was yummy caramel cheese cake. We cut the cake & ate that in evening.

Gift from colleague

Then, BIL called and informed us that he is coming home & will join us for dinner. So, we went to pick him up from train station and went for dinner directly. In the middle of having dinner, MIL called PK but he did not answer the call as it was too noisy & crowded in the restaurant. Also, as they are not talking to me, PK was upset that they have not called me on my birthday. Then, she called BIL and within a second BIL answered the call and forced me to talk with her. I felt very awkward. If they have to wish me, they can call on my phone also, why calling both their sons?? Did MIL already knew that BIL was with us at that time?? I knew something fishy was going on. I told BIL not to force me but he kept pushing phone to me. I was very angry & told PK to ask his brother to not create scene in restaurant. So, PK asked BIL to tell them we will call later. My mood was totally off 😦

BIL behaved as if he doesn’t know anything and kept asking – β€œWhat happened?” β€œWhat happened”? I was very angry, I bluntly told him that we are not talking to each other since months!! BIL replied – β€œTake it easy, chill, they are like that only, you just take it easy” I was fuming – β€œI have been taking it easy since 5 years, not any more. I know, that you know everything so better don’t pretend as if you don’t know anything and you better be away from all this” He stepped back and started behaving normal. To be continued….

PS : PK is writing about that phase of his life when his parents were looking for a suitable match for him, I get butterflies in my tummy when I read his posts πŸ˜€

    Exciting to see what is inside your package! I hope you had a lovely birthday aside from the that incident with your BIL/MIL.
    It is the really small sweet things that warm you and make you realise that people care. I especially like the gesture of changing the Whatsapp group name!
    Belated Happy Birthday! Wishing your next year to be prosperous, happy and healthy πŸ˜€

    Aww many mang happy returns of the day dear, belated birthday wishes.. Hope this new year brings you much more happiness and success.. πŸ™‚

    You know TP, there are some people like your MIL who really don’t know to value what God has given them. They are losing their peace and ruining their good times uth family due to silly egos. She should be proud of her kids and you but she is choosing to be unhappy. But God is watching, hope she learns to value all she has soon. Sorry if I sounded rude but such people make me mad, who chose to be sad and upset when they can count their blessings and enjoy.

    Anyway, you are doing it right TP, good that you guys handled it well.

    And yeah, even I’m enjoying PK’s side of story, he ends it with full expectations for next part, very interesting. πŸ˜€

      And oh yes, I totally loved those gifts, the diamond earring is so pretty and how special are the gifts from India. Oh god, my mouth is drooling with the names of the Holi sweets.. Could you celebrate Holi in Aussie ?!

      • yeah they organize a Holi Fair here just like Diwali fair, but I have never attended it.
        I have heard that people play with dry colours, distribute sweets, there are dance performances as well..

    • Thank you soooo much Jazz πŸ™‚ Why did you took a bite from my twitter cake??? 😦
