Today is my Birthday…
And I have nothing more to say as I am totally lost for words… Blank.. Let me try if I can rattle out a few words from my brain.
No idea what one is supposed to do for birthday on the blog, but since one is supposed to spend time with friends on this day… I am doing so too.
Spending the day with you guys since most of you have become my friends, and I am surrounded with more warmth here on the blogosphere than anywhere else, other than family.
So thank you, one and all, for spending this entire year with me liking my posts, commenting, sending me warm vibes, love, happiness, and LAUGHTER!!!
ALL OF YOU ARE SIMPLY AWESOME! THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE IN MY LIFE!! 💖💖
To Nina, my gift hypothesis still stands!! 😂 😂
- Take care of my health
- Organize my time well
- Get Netflix
- Sleep more
- DNF books
I will add more to the list when I think of it!! Any suggestions??
As Meggy says
Be gentle with myself

Happy birthday Shalini! You rock as a blogger that’s for sure but you seem to be so much more. Let me rephrase that. You are so much more. For me, you are like a good book. You know, the kind you want to read over and over again because it makes us feel good and it inspires us. Yep, you are definitely this kind of book. Wishing you a great birthday. And a very happy 2019! 💕💖💕
Aaah my darlin Dominique, you bring light to my heart and make it float. Your wishes are most precious. Thank you so much. And I like being a good book, which has a special place in the mantle of your heart. Thank you. Wishing you a happy 2019♥️💕💞
Looking forward to the new year. In the meantime, I hope you will enjoy the time and a special treat or two. Wishing you a happy 2019, too. 💕💖💕💕💖💕
I always add “be gentle with yourself” as a good year resolution! 🙂 Happy birthday!!! I hope this new year in your life brings lots of love, bookish surprises, and happy moments 🙂 x
Meggy, you are right… I will add it right now😘😍
Thank you so much 💕
Wish you a very very happy birthday
Thank you so much Sir
Welcome mam, its a party for your birthday
Hahaha no sir, so far nothing. Aaj my favorite restaurant is also closed Hahaha 😂😂
You can also organize party at home and cook delicious food
Nahhh things are a bit difficult now. And I don’t cook.. But a good idea, one day, I will implement
Thanks mam for implement my idea. God bless you mam
Thank you so much
Too bad I can’t send voice comments on WordPress else I would have started singing for you (then again, my singing voice isn’t so great, so it might not have been very good anyway lol 😂😂). A very, very happy birthday to you Shalini. You are without a doubt one of the kindest people that I have met her on wordpress and just one heck of an amazing person.I really hope that 2019 is going to be an awesome year for you, but for now just enjoy your birthday🎉🎉🎉 I hope you have had some wonderful presents😊😊 Have a wonderful day Shalini! 😘❤️❤️
Aaah Michel, how are you darling, I have been worried about your health..
Thank you so much for your wishes. Not many would use kind alongside my name, I am so happy you saw that in me.
I hope 2019 is awesome for you too..
And presents? What are they? 😂 😂 Nopes, haven’t bought a single thing for myself yet… I always buy loads of gifts for me. I know what I like best 😂😂
I like those words – amazing and kind… Never thought it would be used to describe me 😘😘😍😍💞❤️💞
Honestly my health is still pretty much the same. But I will be visiting the doctor again next week, and probably get some tests after that visit. We’ll see. I’m trying to stay positive, and enjoy the two days off I’m having as much as I can, even though there have been a few moments especially yesterday where I wasn’t able to that. But I’ll be okay, as I said I try to stay positive 😊😊
Haha…well…both amazing and kind are words that pretty much are definitely words that suit you, and describe you very well 😘
Haha: well…that’s what I always do as well: buy presents for myself 😂😂 As you say, I know myself best as well lol 😂😂😂
I hope you will have a wonderful birthday sweet Shalini: enjoy it, because you definitely deserve to have one 😘❤️❤️
Thank you.. I will be praying for you 😘💞
Happy birthday Shalini, may your new revolutions around the sun bring great redemption and respite from the all hardship. Stay blessed and happy.
Thank you so much Aquib.. Very well said… So beautiful
Thank you sir

Awww Brenda, thank you so much. I will be kind to myself. And I hope to read more books with you guys in the new year😘😘😍😍
🎈🎀A MERRY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you, Shalini babeeeeeee!!! Hope this coming year you’ll find more strength and true happiness in this life!🎇🎶
Ghost, thank you sooo much 😘😍😍💞💞 how you doing babes? How’s life what’s happening?
MY PLEASURE!!! I’m doing fine, thanks for asking 😄 Had a reading slump recently but working my way through it, gotta get some posts up. I’ve read quite a bit but haven’t posted all the reviews. Life’s been steam rolling me lately.
You’ve been on a roll though! Sooo many books. How’s your life?
I am okay… Ups and downs… Part of life… I read more during downs 😂😂
Now THAT is an awesome way to deal with the downs! The genre of book I read depends on whether my life’s in an up or down state, too😁
Well I read thrillers when I am down and need to distract my brain… Should be trying horror soon
Eeks😱 Does that mean what I think it means? Lol, you’re the opposite of me! I tend to read contemporary romance or sci-fi/fantasy with good endings when I’m down. To balance things 😁 What title are you planning on devouring next?
Btw, totally off-topic but is the onion samosa that’s really popular called irani samosa? The type that’s vegetarian without potatoes and is flat, not the ‘bonda’ type.
I think so, the small ones are onion ones Irani samosa and big ones are with potato aloo samosa. Yummy 😋
When I am down I want brain totally distracted, thrillers cause adrenaline rush and negates the ‘downer’ hormones
Thanks! Samosas are lip-smackingly good!
That makes sense 😄
I am hungry now. And it’s 2am here 😂😂
Hahahaha xD Have you ever made them before? I’m planning on trying them out. Some recipes say you need chaat masala and some don’t…
Use chaat masala… I love chat masala… It brings out the extra oomph
Haha 😁 thanks! I’ve never used chaat masala before. From your words it sounds like the kind of small thing that you underestimate but actually makes a sizeable difference!
Thank you so much ❤️ ❤️
Thank you so much…😘😍💞💞
I found this comment in the spam folder hence the delayed reply
Happy Belated Birthday Shalini. I do nothing on my birthday except my kids usually take me out for dinner. I wish you all the best in the coming year and that something wonderful happens for you.
Thank you so much Carla 😘😘I hope so… Thank you for your wonderful wishes 😍💞
Happy Birthday! I will keep saying it on every post or tweet I find. 🙂
Love the resolutions. DNF! 🙂
Yayyy… Cutie you are… You are making my year so special already… Do you know how much I love you… You should by now… I fan girl you so much… 😍😍😘😘 We are both 23 from now on… 😂 😂
Yay!!! I’m so glad. I promise I’ll be back chatting soon. I’ve been a bit down and taking some time offline, but once I get home from visiting family for the holidays, I’ll be back! 🙂 xoxo
Cool… Me too… I have down with a fallen ceiling and other stuff. So see you on the other side.. Ooooh I sound so mysterious
Happy birthday! Wishing you a wonderful day, and a beautiful new year.
Thank you so much Lisa… I wish you a happy and peaceful year too
Belated happy birthday!! Hope you had a wonderful day!! ❤
Thank you so much… It was a good day 💞 💕
You’re welcome! That’s great!! 😊 <3
Awww readers really get to our heart, eh? I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Also nice resolutions! Ive giggled a bit at « get netflix » ahaha, me too I spent my time without it for a while, stopped it, and i’m back on 😂😂
Hahaha 😂 😂.. I got it too.. Hopefully I get time to see it now 😂😂
Yeah, same 😂 I first got it in the middle of summer… didnt worked well as I was more into youtube stuff *aherm*
I still have a few days before Alex come back … so I thought hey, as I had 7days off out of the 12 he was gone surely i’ll get a use of it xd
Excuse me, my dear! As always for such moments i a too late. ;-( HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! You are blessed beeing born on Boxing Day! ***lol*** Best wishes, Michael
Hehehe 😂 😂… Thank you so much Michael… I already know you only have good thoughts and wishes for me💕❤️
💕❤️ Always Shalini!💕❤️ You are my favorite farest away woman. 🙂 Best wishes, Michael
Hehehe now I want those Sci fi thingy to transport myself to you so that I become your favorite near woman 💕❤️
That could be great.💕❤️ I think time will show. We will find a way. However! 😉
I like to see posts from you about you now and then, though I’m not as able to engage. But yes, do take care of yourself. However, Netflix may reduce not increase sleep!
That’s fine. Thank you so much for your good thoughts… I have yet to find time to binge on Netflix… 😂
Happy belated birthday. I hope it was filled with lots of books, chocolate and family and friends. Your list sounds wonderful.
Yayyy thank you so much.. The day was filled with chores, sweets, and books… And of course, I did get Netflix, yet to find time to binge on it
Ha, ha. If you like cartoons How to Train Your Dragon series is amazing as is Troll Hunters.
I saw the dragons movie, I loved it… Troll hunters is new for me…
Basically, I haven’t seen TV or movie in 2 or 3 years now… Hence I thought I should see something… Will bookmark troll hunters.. Keep suggesting Yayy… I was planning to binge on 31st night
What did you end up watching?
I saw birdbox… And I enjoyed it thoroughly 😍 I got scared too😂😂
Scared is not for me as noted by my list.
Ooooh maybe I should just review Birdbox the movie😘
Happy, happy belated birthday, Shalini!!! 🎉🎊❤️❤️ I only got to blog hopping today because of the holidays, but I felt like I must write! You’re important to me. Thank you for being in my blogging life. You’re amazing and a very good friend to many of us. We’re lucky to have you in the blogosphere. ❤️😊🎂
Oh honey, you have no idea how important you are to me. For me, Dora means happiness, cuteness, my darling. These words come when I think of you. When I see your comment, I always have a smile. When any review if mine finds a place in your post, I am like a kid, wanting to clap and jump. You make me feel like the happy kid…
Your words warmed the papillary muscles of my heart and made it quiver in a good way. I have tears filming my eyes knowing your thoughts. I am so happy that the warm vibes I send to each one of you, reaches you.
Thank you my dear heart for all the love you send me… It is returned in plentiful back to you. Hugs and kisses always 😘😘💕💕💞💞
Your words sound like poetry… I love reading them! ❤️ I’m so happy we have each other here! 💗💃💃 I hope you did have a wonderful birthday and I wish you a happy, happy new year for next week, too!! 🎉🎊❤️
I am late, sorry! But Happy Birthday!!!!! <3
Aaah matters not… But your wishes do… Thank you Susy😍😍😘😘💕
Belated birthday wishes Shalini! 🥂May you be gifted with life’s biggest joys and never-ending bliss! Have a beautiful new year! xoxo 🎉🎁💕

Absolutely my pleasure 😄! ❤️
Happy belated birthday! May it be filled with much love, wonder, and many books.

No problem Carrie, I know your good wishes are always there with me 😘💞
Yes definitely! And of course all the best for the new year to come. 😊
Happy Belated Birthday!
Yayy thank you so much 💕💞
Hi Shalini, I’m reading this post exactly after a month of your birthday. Belated wishes ! And since we are still in the first month of the year, wish you a beautiful year ahead. I love your wish list. May you make them true… Best wishes…
Awww…. That is so sweet of you… It was nice to celebrate it with everyone in the blogosphere..
My wish list is half done – got Netflix and I am kind to myself
It’s been a while since I was last active on the platform and I hope you have been doing well.
Also, I see that I have a lot of catching up to do! For starters, is there any book review from your blog that you think an irregular reader like me shouldn’t have missed? Please mention, if any! 😀
Lock Every Door by Riley Sager… There are many such thrillers.
Hey Paoos padate, umbrella kuthe aahe? 😂😂😂
