February Wrap Up


The things we did in February – in no particular order:

  • Put away the Christmas tree, star and decor – FINALLY!
  • Got a red clock for our living Room from Home Centre.
  • Got a set of 5 black photo frames from Home Centre.
  • Got an Angry Birds bolster pillow and cushion cover for my nephew Rahul’s birthday gift.
  • Got a Glass vase and artificial flowers for the living room from @ Home.
  • Got two 16″ by 16″ cushions for the living room (still haven’t found the covers that we’re looking for).
  • Finally finished off all the Gift Vouchers we had got for our engagement and wedding – yippee…I still wish I had more :p ).
  • Shuffled around the artwork in our house – the Tanjore painting is now in the Mid area between our bedrooms, the Last Supper is in the Dining Room.

So our To-Do List now looks like this (we added some projects and then crossed off some and deleted some from the list!):
