I carry a small purse while going out, handbags are used only when I travel out of town.But the items inside both are more or less the same..

Money- in notes and coins
House Keys
Mobile Phone
Phone charger, comb, tickets and some hand towels (Handbag)
Couple of recent bills ( in the purse if I have forgotten to throw them away)

That's it friends..

Customer Service

I recently received an account statement by post from a financial institution. There was a slight spelling mistake in my email id in the statement i.e was written as I called the toll free customer service number and was told to courier a letter with my signature and the correct email id. I was told that this was the only way out since they needed to tally my signature with the application form.

Suddenly, I thought of sending an email to the customer service and accordingly did that. Within two hours, I received an email from them saying that they have updated my correct email address in their records.. I had just asked them to correct the email address which was promptly done without asking for my signature. But then why was I told to send a signed letter to their postal address while speaking over the phone??

Is It Mere Coincidence or...???

I have been noticing this for the past ten years or so. Whenever a new building is being constructed in the vicinity where I stay, I am bound to shift house. It has happened about 7 times till now. This spans across cities and even spread to the UK when I lived there. I am unable to find out the real reason for this, but all I know is that my move was not deliberate nor did I have any problems with the owner of the property when I stayed in a rented place.

The reason why I am writing this now is that some days back I got the news that a new building will soon be constructed opposite my house and so.....Do I get ready and pack my bags???

What Makes Me Happy???

Shaktii tagged me to know what makes me happy...So here I start with a list that is surely incomplete....

A smiling face when I open the door

When I sleep well at night peacefully ( an indication that the day has passed well)

When I see people showering their affection on me

When my grandpa telephones me to say " I am always thinking about you "

A good plate of chaat

Eating lots of fruit salad instead of lunch or dinner

When I get scolded that I spend money on others but not on myself

A kitchen sink full of utensils... I just love doing the dishes

A bucket full of water and some soap and scrubbers to do some cleaning

Mails from old friends

When I hear someone speaking in Marathi even on the TV

When I see someone doing good in life after facing lot of hurdles initially

When family likes a particular dish I made etc etc etc
