The modern Christmas tree at Welaro. All the kusudama made while visiting my parents have become the ornaments on the tree.
I had my birthday this week. The waiter arrived with this cake and candle at the end of the meal. A wonderful surprise. Thanks to hubby dearest and the restaurant didn't charge us for the meal. That was a wonderful surprise for both of us.

We drove to Chennai for a meeting on Monday and to spend a day with family. On Sunday 4th December it was announced that Jayalalitha had suffered a cardiac arrest. So our meeting was cancelled as the worst was expected.
Stocked up on essentials and as expected her demise was announced close to midnight on the 5th. Tuesday her funeral was held at 4.30pm and there was no untoward incident.The end of an era.
Thanks to demonetisation we could pay all the tolls with our debit card, at all the toll booths from Coimbatore to Chennai.

Of the 100 chicks we bought in September we kept 20 and sold the rest. The twenty chicks have grown and they were let out of their enclosure for the first time to scratch and feed on the lawn and amongst the tea bushes.
