For You, Daddy!

Who’s Who



I will very likely talk the most about certain people simply because I interact with them the most. The following list will introduce you to them.




1. Daddy

With the angels.




2. Mummy

Blessed to still have her around.




3. Big Bro: Bully Bro would be more appropriate. He is the eldest.

4. Big Sis: Bestest Sis would be more appropriate. She is the middle child.

The wee un’s me!




5. Godbaby: Big Sis’ only child. She is also my god-daughter.




6. BFF One: She’s been my best friend since primary school.




7. BFF Two: She became my (other) best friend in 2006.




8. Bestie Boy: The man in my life who I’ve shared a purely platonic relationship with since we met in 2005.




I love animals; almost any animal. My family encounters the following fur-on-four-feet on a daily basis, so they might make an occasional appearance here. These are their real names.




1. Shlaap: The name doesn’t mean anything. That sound popped into my head when I first began playing with her. She was a stray cat.  I got her fixed because Mummy took a liking to her. She is now officially our cat.



2. Trot and Hanger: An affectionate pair of girl-dog mutts who guard our neighbourhood. Trot literally trots like a pony and Hanger was a late comer who hung around Trot and Rag (she looked like one). Rag now scampers around in doggie heaven. That’s what Mummy told me.



3. Dack: Again, a meaningless sound to most, but a suitable name in my opinion. She is Shlaap’s mother. She is allowed to walk in and out of our home as and whenever Lady Cat’s Whiskers Herself fancies. She’s a street cat at heart, so she’s more out than in.



4. Pretty Cat, Orange Pekoe, Earl Grey, Pumpkin Patch, Frankie, Bushy Tail, Midnight, Rawny, Scotch and Seamus: All of them belong to our neighbours, so they each have names given to them by their respective owners. I call them by these names because these are more descriptive of them. These cats like our family, too! They pop in every day to see how we are doing. Yeah, around mealtimes. How did you know?










  1. Hi, I just met you on Cheerful Monk blog.

    • Hello there bikhikebabe,

      I have recently begun following Cheerful Monk’s blog and I’ve noticed you there frequently. Thank you for taking the time to comment here.

      I found Cheerful Monk when looking for a ‘light bulb moment’ image for my 15 December 2011 post. She graciously permitted me the use of her work.


      P.S.: I like your name.

      • What’s not to like, Pooja? A very pretty place, wonderful looking food and blessings for my family? That can come only come from a good heart. 🙂

  3. A mighty heart? For realsies? Are you by any, wild, impossible chance saying that I look like Angelina Jolie? Why, thank you! That’s not what you meant? Oh.

    Be not deceived by my e-magnanimity, dear Pooja. Mighty heart also morphs into mighty mouth more often than is good for her, um, me.
