Asha from Aroma had tagged me for What's in a name.
I had promised her I will do it in a week or two. But as you can see it took longer.
I was saying to my daughter that i was tagged by Asha and i didn't know what to write about myself and her reply was oh easy if it was me i can write a lot of things about myself. Kids they live in their own world.
So here it goes.
H : for Happy. The word say for itself. Most of the time i am happy. When i was in School one of our teacher used to call us ( my two elder sister and I ) lauging sisters ............so that says itself i am always (mostly) happy.
P for Patience. Idon't get easily provocated. But then when i get angry, you better move, because then there is fire!!!!!!!
P forPen. If i was using a pen i would have written much better ( NOT) but i am typing.
