A Rosie World is exactly what it says on the tin. It’s about me, my family and our lives.
I have been toying with the idea of having a blog for years because, as people who know me well will tell you, I have so much to say about everything. This is my space to share all of that – my thoughts, my ideas and my memories.
I questioned myself several times before doing this. My children are growing up so fast and had I listened to my heart years ago, I would have written several hundreds blogs by now and you would have shared those precious moments with me. But life is not about regrets and after talking myself in and out of the idea, I’ve finally decided to take the plunge. After all, there’s never a right time to start. The beginning is where you want it to be.
It’s scary and exciting at the same time. Life is a big adventure and I want to put ours into writing. I want to document all of those special moments that make my life what it is.
I can’t really pinpoint my genre because I will blog about everything that affects us and is a part of our everyday lives – the day-to-day things, the momentous occasions, holidays, family events, special days out and lots more in between.
This is the world through our eyes.
That’s me. I’m the writer of everything on here. I’m a wife to Sukh, and mother to Shalini and Shivam. I’m nutty, I’m loud and friends say I’m fun to be around. Growing up, I was always the clown. I somehow feel it’s my job to keep everyone entertained. I’m the all-singing, all-dancing act. I don’t mind making a bit of a fool of myself in order to extract a few smiles.
I’m also full-time radio producer. My life is busy and can often get very hectic. I won’t lie, I do get very stressed and sometimes obsess over the minor details. I give everything I’ve got to my job and sometimes I’m drained by the time I pick up the kids and get home but as a working mum, my day doesn’t end there. As every parent knows, the evenings can be just as hard. That’s all part and parcel of life though and no matter how challenging it may feel at times, it’s not something I ever want to change or swap for a different option. I love my life. I enjoy my life. This blog is my outlet to share all of that with you – all of the ups and downs and everything in between.
Shalini is my daughter. She was born in 2005 and I can’t believe my baby girl is now at secondary school. Shalini is an Indian name which means modesty and I feel it’s the perfect name for her. At times she’s a tomboy, opting to wear a comfortable hoodie and trainers but when it comes to weddings and parties (and boy, there a lot of events for us in any given year!), she likes to be girly and feminine. She’s a budding photographer and I love that she finds a picture in everything. We recently invested in a good digital camera for her so expect to see a lot of Shalini’s shots on this blog.
Shivam is my son. He was born in 2009 and is now on his primary school journey alone, since Shalini left. He’s a lad’s lad through and through. Shivam means Lord Shiva and is as powerful a name as the boy is himself. He loves Harry Potter, Ninjago, Power Rangers, every kind of superhero under the sun (and we have the figures to prove it!) but his biggest obsession is wrestling. He has over 100 figures, a wrestling ring, lots of belts and props. He eats, drinks and breathes it. I might write a post on it one day!
Sukh is my husband, the father of my children and my best friend. We met in the year 2000 and married two years later. One day I will tell you that story. Sukh’s humour is an acquired taste. Either you love it straight away or you grow to love it! He’ll always manage to find a joke or a double-meaning in something. He’s confident in his own skin. He’s a full-time cameraman and calls himself the hardest-working man in show-business! Forget flash cars, he’d rather have a flash gadget any day of the week. Oh and one more thing, which is really important to me, he can cook!
So that’s us. That’s my world and the people I love most in it. I’d just like to end this on one more fact about our family. We’re all born in November!
