Yesterday, I turned a year older. Again. (why does this keep happening every year?!!)
But, received some lovely gifts.
My friend in the box started crocheting this on the day she heard that I’d resigned from the box. She would weave it bit by bit, every day, after going home from the box. And she gave it to me as a farewell/ birthday gift. Such a warm and lovely gesture 🙂
And this gift is a shawl from Sindh, Pakistan. Yes, really, from across the border 🙂 A friend of ours had gone there on a press-tour, and got this shawl with such rich, warm colours. It is called an Ajrak – a unique form of blockprinted shawls created in Sindh. Its lovely 🙂
A field hockey stick!!! yippee 😀 😀 :D.
(making do with a tennis ball right now, till i get proper hockey ball. But wow, i love this gift. I’d given away my old stick to a cousin, who never took to the game, and lost my other one. I’ve held a hockey stick after ages – so this is just just just great. It also came to me on the day our team made it to the finals of the Champions Challenge. I smell a good omen 🙂 )
