Sunday Smiles: Of Monsters & Mommy

Ever since I landed in Sydney, my Mom has done more research on Australia than I could have ever managed. I have no idea from where she gets all her information, but then, you know how Moms are… they are quite resourceful. She know the places where Dil Chata Hai was shot, the tall structure of Sydney Eye and is often reminding me to stay away from bushes for the fear of snakes and other reptilian creatures. Should I tell her that I go for bush-walking and walk past water-dragons all the time? Naah, a paranoid mom is worse than an informative mom πŸ˜›
A fact she couldn’t fathom is the use of tissue paper for ‘you know what’ and that we drink tap water. With anxious voice she would often ask me if we use same water for kitchen and bathroom. And when I say yes, she would go,”tsk tsk!! boil the water ok“. Moms!!

Here’s a picture of Waverley Cemetry where Dil Chahta was shot. Waverley cemetry contains graves of many who shaped Australia. It was opened in the year 1877.

 If I had known earlier I would have shot exactly like that πŸ˜› Well maybe next time.

I haven’t done much crafting for a really long time. Last night, while I was reading a paperback – Thirst by L A Larkin, I realized I don’t have any bookmarks. The papercrafter in me “tsk tsk” for not creating my own personalized bookmark.
So today I opened by crafting bag, and armed with tea and cauliflower fritters, I made a few monster type bookmarks.






Those are my earlier works. I had placed craft glue and bbq sauce together, because “glue” and “bbq” rhymes πŸ™‚ but that only lead to, not one, but three people telling me not to mix them up while eating πŸ™‚ With my history, yeah that’s possible!!

That’s how my sunday went, how about yours?
