Day 8 | BB arrived on Diwali

08 Jan

Diwali was on a Thursday and it being a working day here, we decided that we would take the delivery in the evening. Abbas was excited beyond words. It was as if he was bringing his bride home. Hehehe πŸ˜€ Abbas left early, picked Mantam and another friend M (who had earlier stayed with us with his family) also joined him and they went to the showroom together. Ro and I started from our workplaces and directly headed to the showroom. Abbas had reached early and got all the formalities done. Ro was to drive us back home as he was the only one among us to have a DL πŸ˜€ M was more excite than us as he is very passionate about cars and he was constantly clicking pictures. Abbas also drove for a while as he was authorized to drive while accompanied by a person with DL. After reaching home, we decided to freshen up and then go out for dinner. We invited Ro and M’s family also.

We quickly changed into some traditional clothes, lit diyas that Mantam and I had hand-painted. I had made Besan laddoos in the morning before leaving for work. We carried a few sparklers with us to light outside. That was pretty much a Diwali on our toes. We were drop dead tired by the time we hit the bed and there was another working day waiting to barge upon us. (At times like these when we mope about going to work, we remind each other of the days when we were desperate to work and shun the sulking)

GB had asked a valid question about Abbas’s DL. As we had anticipated he failed the next two attempts as well. He passed at his fourth attempt which was 6th of December. So, for almost a month and a half, BB just beautified the garage. Abbas would go meet her in the garage every weekend and spend some time with her. We did take her out a couple of times but when Ro was there to accompany. Abbas was tempted to drive her by himself but I would admonish him and strictly advice to adhere to the rules. We also paid Ro back within November as we had told him. Luckily, Abbas got his DL at a good time as Mantam’s school was closing down on 17th and they joined the school Vacation care from 18th. Abbas also started driving to work which was a great relief.

Here are some pictures of BB and our Diwali celebration:

      Thanks GB. Even Abbas and I love black cars. When we were planning to buy Bulu, many people told us that it is more prone to accident and a few other negatives like that. So we chose the next best. This time black it was 😜
