An overhead unit that wouldn’t close,
Good customer service, but really slow.
Six months to deliver and install a new door,
When will they take the old one back?
Two weeks right now, and I still don’t know.
The review below is based on our experience with our Godrej Interio cupboards, and purchasing an overhead unit from them, and may not represent the experience of other customers.

It brings me such joy to have less stuff,
To have less storage and feel it’s enough.
To have time to go out, feel the wind in my face,
And come home and sit in my favorite place. Continue reading Minimalism – the way I want to go.
She goes on leave for just 15 days,
From the 15th of Feb, till the 15th of May.
15 and 15 and add some more,
Accept that she’s gone and she’ll knock at your door. Continue reading The Maid
My husband and I made a decision to down size our stuff, in an effort to make space in our lives. In this post, I talk about our decision, our goals and the 6 things that helped us with them.
I just have to write about this, because it’s changed the quality of our lives and given me time to get out and get some sun.

Making a decision to buy a new floor cleaning robot
Our old Eureka Forbes floor cleaning robot started to fall apart, and couldn’t be repaired. We invested in it years ago, but it took us a while to reorganise our home for it. So, we only started to really use it 6 months before it died.
At this time, Eureka Forbes did not have another model on sale – so it was the Roomba or Milagrow. Both brands had models in a range of budgets, with wet and dry options, but the Milagrow had a budget friendly model, plus it had a customer service centre in Mumbai.
We purchased our Milagrow Aguabot 7.0 Cashmere for about Rs25000/- under an Independence Day discount offer in August 2018 and it set us free from the routine of daily cleaning. Read on for a review.

I first started composing my kitchen waste using the anaerobic method. I did this for a year, and later switched to smaller lots of composting using the aerobic method.
In this post, I talk about my current method of composting, why I switched to it, and the process of anaerobic composting I followed during my first year of composting. Plus some links on composting methods. Continue reading Kitchen waste composting at home
Buying a pair of jeans in Navi Mumbai is mostly impossible for me.
The problem is that i am ‘the average woman’ – busy trying to find that ‘perfect imbalance’ that helps me do the things i would like to, and still manage to do the things i need to, and not always succeeding. I’m either too lazy or too busy to have a regular exercise routine. I weigh 20 kgs more than i did at 20, but in my mind, i’m really very slim..
The shops at Navi Mumbai simply don’t cater to ‘slim’, older women like me. They stop at size 34, and usually only keep the skinny fit!
So, i visited the Levi’s shop at the Phoenix mall, Kurla the other day, because i thought that you had taken the trouble to manufacture jeans to fit every woman. I was pleasantly surprised to find my size – only you now mark every size a couple of numbers below the waist measurement (for example : a 34 is now marked 30 or 32)?
However, i walked away without a pair of jeans, simply because the skinny fit just does not do it for me. Like i did before, i’m going to have to really really look around a lot, to get a pair of jeans that fit’s comfortable.
