About Me

Li’l Old Me……….

In one word……A  Housewife….. 🙂
BUT!!! Neither bored,nor boring…and certainly NOT desperate !!  😉

And the aim of this blog ???…To browbeat you into agreeing with this statement… 😀

A mother to a 10 year old absolutely adorable daughter, I dabble in varied handicrafts,as and when my whims dictate.   In fact, I am called a “Knit Wit” for my love for knitting and crotcheting. 😀 Reading books is as vital to me as oxygen…

Take a glimpse into my life as a homemaker,………….. which contrary to the popular perception is NOT mono-chromatic…..but comprises of stripes of various colours!!!

  1. Dear Amrita
    Thank you so much for visiting my site and your appreciation. Your site is very interesting, and refreshing ..no cooking business :-).
    I wont understand the technicality of Crochet and knitting but all your work is just too good.
    ( You cant believe I was very good at knitting when I was in school and boys used to make fun of me!!!)
    I will find your writings very interesting , I can smell that from the introduction to your blog.
    Apart from my cooking blog, I am sure you will find my other 2 blogs quite interesting, i.e Indian Himalayas and “Truth and Imaginations”.
    Let me start reading your blogs starting with Fairy tales India
    Enjoy the last week of 2009 and happy new year to you and family.

      Thanks alot for stopping by….and also for sparing me the trouble of browbeating you into agreeing with me. 😀
      LOL @ no cooking business. I hope your foodie friends are not listening as you say this. 😉 I just happen to be more passionate about eating than about cooking. 😀 :DOtherwise cooking and housewife are almost synonymous.

      Thanks for the compliments! 😀
      And congratulations on breaking the knitting stereotype!! *applause*
      Wish you and your family a very HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010

Just take the plunge and join the bandwagon. I can tell you from my own experience that you will learn “on the job”. All the best 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Amrita you have a very engaging and unpretentious way of writing !Thanks for being in touch .I am inspired to have my daughter (she is nine) join me!

    • Amrita says:

      Thanks Varsha, good to see you here 🙂 I can vouch for the fact that blogging does wonders to a childs confidence and creativity. It has to be done under a parents supervision, of course. Do introduce blogging to your daughter. She is just the right age to start 🙂 All the best 🙂

  8. All the intro stops at my own daughter and I am gonna tell her.

    Dear Amrita,
    You are so humble, and kind. All this time I had no idea you had a blog of your own.
    Today is the first day I realized this is your blog (and your wonderful daughter’s:)
    Just shared a poem by K. Gibran that you had posted here.
    Thank you for being who you are- a wonderful soul. Blessed to have a friend like you.
    Loads of Love,

    • Amrita says:

      Sarwat, I do have a blog but I continue to be a reluctant blogger so I usually keep this fact under wraps 🙂 You are doing a woderful job on your part. Hats off and proud to be your friend. 🙂 Keep it up 🙂
