What do you do with your old clothes, clothes which are not really torn or worn but are off size ? If you donate , then where ?
The questions are directed to all , but I request Bangaloreans to come with specific details.
I have donated clothes and toys a few times , when office had organised collection center for goonj. After that I thought of donating directly at goonj collection center but no one actually picks phone there and so I do not know if that really exists.
How much of your personal life do you discuss in office ?
Do you crib about certain family members / issues at work ?
Do you talk about your/family member’s wedding proposals in detail ?
Do you talk about the talks/fights/Issues/expectations between you and your partner ?
Do you talk about the antics of your kids ?
Do you share stories/pictures about you vacations ?
And whom do you share , if you do ?
With people who you consider friends and would like to be in contact even when you move jobs.
With team members / lunch partners who you just call friends.
I do talk about antics of my son and share pictures of my vacation with colleagues who ask or show interest in the same.
I do not share family issues / had not shared wedding proposals with anyone at work , even when I consider them friends.
I cannot think of talking about things between me and my partner to anyone in the world , except 1-2 people whom I consider my lifetime friends (and who are not at work) and that too in rare cirumstances.
But I have seen people doing all of the above. And so I wonder how different I am.

Does your spouse call you during his/her day ?
Mine does and so do I. Whenever we need , we call each other and talk about ..whatever ..whats happening in offices , what is the plan for evening /weekend , what is happening with Aryan, What did my mom say over phone ..whatever ..but we talk ..everyday …atleast once. Sometimes our talks last for only 30 seconds and sometimes 5 minutes or so, depending upon how we are placed at work.
Do you think its unusual ? I don’t think so. But one of my colleague does. He saw me talking to my spouse and asked if that was my Mom. When I told , no it was husband , his response was “WOW”. I said , “why WOW ? ” and there was another question , “he calls you everyday ?” , I said the obvious and he goes “Great !!!!”. Confused I asked , whats so great about it and he says , that he finds time to talk to you !!!
Now , first of all , not “HE” , “WE” find time to talk to each other. Second , we never really make any effort to find time to talk , it comes naturally to us. I look upto him when I have anything to talk and so does he. Its how we are. Its how I think all couples should be.
The colleague , is middle aged , married for long person. But he found it extraordinary.
Another friend of mine told me once that she and her husband hardly talk after they get home. She told that most of the time husband is busy with newspaper , while she takes care of house and kids. And at night too , she sleeps with the kids while husband , gets to bed late. And they are a happy couple. To me this is what is strange. How can you live with a person without a heartful talk. I feel stressed unless I tell my husband everything important that happened during the day. Having his point of view makes me feel relaxed. And I believe he sails in same boat.
Is this unusual ? How is it with you ?

Yes I am back and I had a great time ! But now I have no time to write about my great time 😦 Yeah , like some of you know office was really hectic before I went and the trip was uncertain , now that I am back its worse 😦 Hence the details about the trip will come in bits and pieces.
To start with , we attended a Holi Milan program on the eve of holi. It had a few artists performing folk dances. Plus everyone played holi with flowers. Nice experience over all ! A glimpse for you :
