Y so?
Hmmm...ok in short we are shifting to our new apt on 24...and guys b'coz of that we had an inspection for the current we thought lets pack and the first stuffs packed where baking dishes and the books from which I had prepared the recipe...I dint realize then as I was too busy cleaning...but after that immediately it stuck me....My hus told that he can unpack the stuffs...but thinking about the work done to pack it made me say No!!!...So with these things going at my end..I think I will be away from blog for some more time...
