“The future is green energy, sustainability, renewable energy.” Arnold Schwarzenegger I grew up watching his films and have followed his political career ever since he entered it. I endorse his views on renewable energy and I am strongly motivated to try my level best to reduce carbon imprints on the planet. My immediate and extended family is aware of my fascination with this big guy and I am often at the receiving end of their humor at most family gatherings. Some even calling me Arnnie in zest. Thankfully, I have succeeded in convincing my twin grandsons about the future of green energy and the importance and urgency of embracing solar and other forms of renewable energy. Its been a while that I have visited their school for grandparents’ day activities and celebrations, but last year early in the morning on... read more


The following is the list of quotes that ring in my ears as I set up my out-door barbeque unit. It is with utmost pleasure that I repeat and sometimes shout it aloud. It gives me some sadistic pleasure, as two decades ago I was on the proverbial, other side. Now I am in charge and it is my domain. • Always be nice to the chef. • Annoying the cook will result in smaller portions. • Only I have the license to grill. Till very recently I fell in the category of a reluctant, bottle/packet ready to open and enjoy kind of person, for whom the concept of instant and microwave cooking was magical. Circumstances are now entirely different. A health scare of dear relative and two small children have converted me forever. For me cooking, specially grilling is... read more

A GLOW THAT ILLUMINATES AND SECURES TOO. Solar garden lighting is a very practical and naturally popular option among home owners. With its use of free energy, easy to install feature and automatic ON/OFF, it effortlessly succeeds in adding convenience and character to its surroundings. I am a first-time independent house owner and am leaving no stone unturned in my research to get the best deal, service and look, for the entire gamut of furniture and fixtures for my dream nest. My front garden though small, is my pride and joy. Besides the perfectly manicured lawns and trimmed hedges, the seasonal flowering plants adding their multiple hues to the surroundings, what gives me extreme satisfaction and deep pleasure is the ambience that is created with the solar lighting. Placement of solar lighting is of extreme importance. Careful never to place... read more


MAKE UP IS ART, BEAUTY IS SPIRIT I am a mother to twin teenage daughters and I am in a constant dilemma as to the appropriate age to use make -up. What is the right age? Will early usage translate into an unhealthy obsession with appearance? Or will usage cause damage to their skin?  One of them is blessed with flawless skin and the other suffers from regular bouts of acne. All through their growing years we as a family have stressed on the need to accept and be comfortable with their imperfections always reiterating we love them as they are.  They looked fairly similar though not identical but comparisons from acquaintances and strangers are the norm. Some insensitive souls blatantly drawing attention to the acne and giving unsolicited advice. Every time that happens the demand to buy concealer grows.... read more

HAPPINESS IS HOMEMADE Family is the building block of every society. Strong, supportive families go a long way in creating stable, secure and confident individuals and by default these very virtues transcend over numerous boundaries leading to a balanced, humane and stable society. My Grandmother often said,” Happiness is Homemade” Whenever, we gathered at her residence she reveled in the bonhomie displayed by her clan and at the cost of repeating herself and being called senile often muttered “Happiness is Homemade”. Contentment in her eyes and an angelic smile on her face she went about feeding all, her home-made goodies. Her cakes were most sought after and there was yet to be a gathering where there was any left over. Every scrumptious crumb was devoured. The lady had a heart of gold, so generous was she with her time, money... read more


My tryst with solar lighting started due to a school project. My 10-year-old was to make a small presentation on Conservation of Natural Resources and the Benefits of Green Energy. He was required to give day to day examples of conservation of natural resources and the usage of green energy in the vicinity of the home and school. He worked in all earnest on the presentation, the kids of today take to technology as fish take to water. It just a  matter of time an extremely informative, explanatory and factual power point presentation was ready, underlying the effects of Global Warming, primarily its adverse effects on flora and fauna and human health. One slide showed the emergence of the ZIKA virus in the cooler latitudes due to rise in temperature caused by global warming. A harsh reality that sent shivers... read more


Queso, Cheese, Fromaggio, Keso, Peynir the most delicious words in Spanish, English, French Swedish and Turkish. Cheese has been known to mankind for over 5000 years. History records its making as accidental and there is no concrete and conclusive evidence to show where its making originated. However, it can be safely said that cheese as an ingredient has always played a pivotal role in all world cuisines and helped transform many a staid dish into an appetizing meal. Besides tantalizing taste buds and suiting various palates it is a wonder food containing the goodness of several nutrients including proteins, calcium, zinc, phosphorous, magnesium, vitamin A, B2, B12. However, I Must caution that it must be consumed in moderation as it is a primary source of fat too. On my travels across the continent of Europe I had the pleasure to... read more


I am a photographer first by passion and then profession. It was after great persuasion and pleading that I had managed to convince my parents about my career choice. I wanted to be an event photographer and shoot weddings in particular. That was almost 15 years ago when freelancing photography wasn’t the most stable and substantial source of income. I always said that I wanted a passport full of stamps and not a house full of stuff. I have always pursued my dreams and encourage all youngsters to do so. It is my tryst with the camera that has allowed me to traverse continents and shoot destination weddings and events. I truly believe that the best stories are found between the pages of a passport and I have been extremely lucky to have experienced some amazing ones. It is with... read more

It all began 33 years ago, a goodwill invite transformed the lives of three families. We were the oldest in the neighborhood, my parents invited two couples over for tea, coincidently they had moved into our neighborhood within a week of each other. Having children close in age made it all easier. The uncertain smiles were soon replaced with exchanging notes on parenting. Before we knew it, a strong bond was formed between three families and two generations. Instrumental in creating that bond was a common love for grilling. Before long we graduated into weekend gatherings in the park, chilling and grilling. We called it our C&G parties. Sprawled out on the luscious lawns with our picnic baskets and grilling appliances, many weekends were spent under the sun. While the parents grilled the most amazing dishes and created scrumptious meals... read more


Grilling is both my hobby and a passion. I dream of becoming a chef of repute, with BBQ and grilling being my forte. In the quest to achieve my dreams, this past summer I invested in an outdoor grill unit. It now occupies a position of pride in my backyard. It was a precious purchase as a lot of sweat and sacrifice was required to allow that purchase to happen. This first investment to achieve my career goal is indeed my most prized possession and I will continue to treasure it forever. With winter upon us I have the urgent task of protecting it. The size of the unit makes it cumbersome and difficult to cart it indoors time and again. So, the best, safest and most practical option will be to cover it safely and fully leaving no room... read more


“Cheers to renewed friendships” is what the invite for the party scheduled for New Years Eve is going to say. Renewed friendships because I moved back to my birth town six months ago after a very long span of almost 30 years. I left as a college kid and returned with kids in college. Connecting with childhood friends and picking up from where we let off is the most precious and special connection. There is no “getting to know each other period “you just know each other. Nothing artificial, No pretense!  Some friends I met up with at the local Parish, one another in the supermarket and slowly but surely managed to connect with almost my entire batch over Facebook. This party is a reunion of sorts for my batch of school friends and those who I grew up with... read more


I have very fond memories of my grandmother and many a summer spent in her company. She was a lady of few words but many virtues. It was she who always said to me BE SOMEBODY, WHO MAKES EVERYBODY FEEL LIKE A SOMEBODY.A simple piece of advice I follow religiously and that has helped me both in my personal relationships and my professional career. I work in the field of education, I am an assistant Montessori teacher and I aspire to continue in this field, making a difference in the lives of the tiny tots as they continue to march forward in their quest of an education. The present batch that I have the pleasure of teaching has children from varied social class and background. Everyday adds to my learning curve too. The children of this generation are out-spoken and... read more


Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional. Yes, I have grown old, the creaking knees, teenage grandchildren and the number of candles on my cake shout it out but, I haven’t grown up the least. I’m a little kid at heart, so my eyes light up when everything is lit. Its holiday season and my living room is lit, ready with decorated tree for the seasons celebrations. The loud laughter, constant banter, unlimited supplies of goodies is what our holiday gathering is all about. I haven’t grown up but, the others haven’t too. We have this tradition of playing Secret Santa, that all young and not so young look forward too. The picking of the numbered folded chits, analyzing the size of the wrapped package, imagining what is inside, is riddled with humorous comments and more comments. The... read more


Strange, odd, quaint, eccentric, peculiar were some of the adjectives used by acquaintances, neighbors and others to describe my grandfather, a grand old man of 87 years. Unique, singular, original, non-conformist and learned was how I saw and described him. My grandfather was an extremely well read man, way ahead of his time, with great love for prose and poetry. He often spoke in verse and phrases not stopping to explain the meaning or connotations but repeating them often. His favorite one for me was “Life is about using the whole box of crayons” I have been fortunate to have enjoyed his company and wisdom for the better part of my life. However, it is only on his passing that I have been able to truly understand and appreciate the depth of that phrase. I am an introvert, shy and... read more

The Party Is This Way —-> I think…….

It was my youngest son's 13th birthday. Having two older siblings the hype created on him becoming a teenager was evident. The upcoming party had been in planning mode for weeks. The older fellows were in charge. I picked up titbits from their conversations that I overheard in the passing and I must admit I had my reservations. I was developing an impression that the party was going to be a rowdy, noisy and a messy affair. The birthday falling bang in the middle of football season had given them a reason to have a theme party which revolved around football/friends /food. As the ideas flowed and were exchanged I was very politely told that I was not part of the organizing committee but a very special guest. They collectively decided that they were going to TAILGATE. All my objections... read more

Yes, its that time of the year where I have the sole attention and possession of my grandchildren. The twin girls are all of eight and my grandson is four. It has been a tradition for almost five years now, that after spending 24th eve with the family my son along with his wife takes off for their annual holiday, leaving the children in our care. It is that time of the year where I don’t mind the mess, noise and disruption in routine. In fact, I relish it and so does their grandfather. I must admit, I quite look forward to having the kids all to myself. I have the liberty to indulge and pamper them or discipline and regulate them. There is no one to prompt me. If there is something as mothers’ instinct, there is also a... read more


A day into the Thanksgiving week and the excitement is palpable. Everyone, whether at work or in school is impatiently looking forward to winding up matters on hand and joining in the celebrations with family and friends. There is something about this season that revives in you, the faith in humanity. Problems that seemed unsurmountable seem easily solvable, nothing seems unattainable and impossible. It’s the spirit of that season that creates this magic of positivity and hope. Thanksgiving gatherings with family and friends is a tradition followed in most households and ours is no exception. We gather at what we call the headquarters, that is the house where we all grew up, our parents’ home. My sister and myself converge a day before, husbands and kids in tow, my brother arrives on Thanksgiving Day as he lives a distance away.... read more

For the longest time I did not know what the abbreviation DIY meant. Now it has become the philosophy I live by! DO IT YOURSELF. There was I time I was dependent on the services of carpenters, plumbers and other utility workers to get the odd repairs done around my home. Not only was it inconvenient to wait around till they arrived but also shockingly expensive. Very often after they had left I would think to myself ‘that’s it, it looks so simple I could have easily fixed this myself” It was solely by chance that I was introduced to DIY tools. We were expecting guests and the handle of the guest room door had come loose. It was not a regular kind of screw but an itsy bitsy one that needed a precision screwdriver with a 2mm head. Ooops!... read more

“Do what you love and don’t look at the clock “is definitely not the best advice to give a 14-year-old. I have learnt this from the daily altercations that I have with my son.  Ironically this is what I happen to have said to him often in the summer when he took up extra coaching for basketball, but now this teenager with his warped sense of humor claims he will only play and nothing more. Says he is doing exactly what I had advised him to do, doing what he loves and not looking at the clock. Yesterday, I helped him pack his kit as he was to accompany his school team to play the elimination round for the local championships. He must have reminded me to put in his alarm clock in the backpack at least thrice and I... read more

Every single member of my family and all my close friends were involved in the planning. I could sense the exhilaration and the excitement as they put their heads together to make my big 50 a memorable one. They tried their level best to keep it a secret, but nothing escaped my sharp astute ears. I had this silly smile stuck on my face as I played pretend, I didn’t know exactly what they were up to but something special was cooking. I felt blessed and loved. Realization dawned at 50! I had covered more than half my life, life had just whizzed by. The children had flown the nest and parents were at eternal rest. My days were no longer spent being the primary care giver, I had so much time on hand that I did not know what... read more

Happiness is ………... buying your dream home. I am the proud, new owner of a very old house. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it, a quaint little house away from the city crowds. I have lived and worked in the city all my life and now as I approach retirement I am looking forward to living in the lap of nature. Surrounded by peace and tranquility. With my children having moved out in pursuit of their respective careers, this decision was collectively taken by my spouse and myself. We had a common vision of how and where we wanted to spend our twilight years. The minute we stepped on to the property, us being there just felt right. We were engulfed in a warmth that said WELCOME HOME. Yes, it needed more than just a... read more

KEEP CALM AND ENJOY THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR May all your troubles soon be gone, Oh, beautiful lights keep shining on…. That’s what my grandmother got us to chant as all the family got down on their knees and decorated the tree and strung the fairy lights around the house. The tradition continues and come November this tune buzzes through my head and no matter what I do I can’t seem to stop humming it. Holiday season is around the corner and I am excited. It’s the magical season with family and friends bonding, a time to share and bask in the warmth and goodness of love and happiness. A mere mention of this holiday season spreads cheer and warmth all around, its thought brings on a smile, no matter what trials and tribulations one is facing.... read more


SHAVE OLD MEN LOOK YOUNGER YOUNG MEN LOOK HANDSOME. It started as a fun challenge in our group of girlfriends, who met up once a month. That gathering always succeeded in rejuvenating all of us mentally. We led such mundane lives that these gatherings served well to entertain us and kept us in good spirits. We played nonsensical games, laughed without reason and had loads of fun. We played games and whoever lost had to complete a task or a dare. As luck would have it, last month I lost the game we played and had to perform a task chosen by the group as my punishment. My task was not an easy one, I had to demonstrate the use of an article that could be used by a teenager and septuagenarian alike but the article could not be a... read more


NINE O’CLOCK IS NOW WINE O’CLOCK My mother is the humorist amongst us. She says the wittiest things always. She is the life of every gathering and everyone looks forward to her one liners. The last few days have been tough on our family as she suffered a mild heart attack and had to be hospitalized. Not a complainer, all she told her well-wishers was that her heart had skipped a beat and that she was in the hospital to tune it but would soon be ready to rock-n-roll. The day she was to be discharged was like a mini- celebration in the hospital. She had endeared herself to one and all and she was being sent off with gifts and cheers. All that was missing was a celebratory band! She received a variety of gifts ranging from books, DVD’S,... read more


I AM PROUD TO BE A WATERHOLIC Its 6:30 A.M. and I am up and about. We have a walking club in our gated community and I am the latest entrant. Enthusiastically I collected my house keys, phone, ear plugs and water bottle all that I would need for my morning workout. Wow! that was a lot to hold in my hands. I returned from my very first workout exhausted and extremely irritated. If this was to be my morning routine, I definitely needed to find a way of making it more enjoyable. I had struggled with and juggled with all the paraphernalia I had carried along. There had to be a better way I thought to myself. I had dropped my keys twice, my phone once and I couldn’t take a sip of water as I had dropped it... read more


Among the human work-force multi-tasking is fast becoming a disliked word. A couple of years ago if multi-tasking was an attribute you claimed to have, you would probably be the favorite of the HR head, but not anymore. Multitasking has been known to affect quality of work and  cause mental and physical stress besides which  nobody is looking for a Jack of all trades and a master of none, It is all about specialization now. However, the same does not hold true for gadgets. Infact, more the variations, more popular the gadget proves to be. The gadget that successfully performs the function it was built for and meant to perform but also does something additional is well liked and received .Wow! Now for the price of one you are getting multiple function gadgets. Multi-tasking gadgets are here to stay! The... read more


The joys of receiving a gift are boundless, irrespective of how old you are. A child’s joy on tearing out the wrapping off his present is in no way less than the joy of an adult opening his. The sense of excitement experienced when the gift is exposed is always consuming, no matter how many gifts you receive. Gifts and the idea of gifting is loved by one and all. Primitive man gifted, modern man gifts too. Human beings are social creatures and gifting expresses emotions of love, helps form connections, creates memories. Human physiology is such that it interprets the act of gifting as an utterance of affection and appreciation. Birthdays and Christmas are not the only occasions to receive or present gifts. Gifting needs no occasion. Seeing someone after a very long time, visiting a sick friend, you... read more


Massage therapy dates back thousands of years to ancient civilizations both in the east [India and China] and west [ Egypt]. Massages have proven to soothe muscles, relieve pain, strengthen muscle and heal injuries too. Ayurveda the traditional medical system in India propagated that an individual who was not in sync with his natural environment would feel sick. To be healthy again Ayurveda taught that the five senses would have to be balanced, treatment included diet, herbs, aromatherapy, color therapy and touch therapy. Touch and massage stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers and brings about relief. Massage in Chinese medicine too was based on a similar concept. Derived and developed in the East these concepts soon spread to the west. Athletes in Ancient Greece kept their bodies well in shape and ready for competition using the massage... read more


BE SAFE, NOT SORRY We belong to a generation where in most households both parents work and children are encouraged to become independent at a very early age. Right from answering the telephone, taking messages, learning the emergency contact numbers by rote, to using the gadgets in the kitchen, this modern generation is quick to learn through observation and practice. Often children return from school to empty homes as their parents are away at work. Independently go about their chores for the evening from preparing food and feeding themselves and sometimes their younger siblings too. All very commendable and definitely something to be encouraged. However, I am of the opinion our responsibility as parents does not end there, in fact it has only just begun! The fact that our children are returning to empty homes their safety and security fall... read more

TRULY SMART ESSENTIALLY CONFIDENT : MAKE-UP 101 Some were pointed, some were blunt, some were fluffy some were stiff. I was totally perplexed and did not know where to begin. I was out shopping for some make up and brushes. However, I returned empty handed as I was bewildered looking at the vast variety of shapes and sizes available. Did I really need so many? I really did not know what to do with those thin sticks that they were passing off as make up brushes. I needed make up brushes for personal use, not to distribute in the neighborhood. What to buy? How to use? Where to use? were the queries that raced through my mind as I looked at the brushes collectively. I decided to research my make-up brush requirements and revisit the store with complete information. Those... read more


Hurricane season brings a humbling reminder that, despite our technologies most of nature remains unpredictable. -Diane Ackerman Hurricane season officially began on June 1st and will end on 30th December but 2017 has been a year of exceptions! Arlene an off-season Atlantic Hurricane formed off the coast of Bermuda in the month of April. So, we can very safely say that 2017 is slated to have a long Hurricane season. What is disturbing is that Irma had developed into a category 5 storm while it was still over the relatively cooler waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Hurricanes usually gather momentum as they enter the warmer waters of the Caribbean Sea. But Irma had gathered momentum long before. These two instances of Hurricane behavior are consistent with results of Global Warming. Nature is all powerful and all giving. The earth provides... read more

My nose is special, it knows. It announces the change of season before the weather man does. I dread the months from November through March. That means almost 1/2 of the year I behave like a bear with a sore head. Trust me It is not a very pleasant situation for all around. I enjoy the holiday season, I enjoy the snow, but what acts as a spoiler is my itchy nose. I have lost count of the embarrassing situations that present themselves due to the uncontrollable sneezing that invariably occurs during this season. The most embarrassing one so far occurred during the examinations last year, just before schools closed for the holiday season. Every one of us were writing our paper with utmost concentration and then it started, the uncontrollable sneezing and sniffing. If looks could kill I would... read more

Everyone deserves a place to call his own, a place where he can be himself, a place to unwind, a place to destress, a place to create. I found my space, I found it in my home, it’s in my KITCHEN and my lifeline is my OVEN. I made my career choice at age 5 and it has forever remained unchanged. Lots of cajoling, loads of appealing from my parents to reconsider as it was not considered challenging enough, fell on deaf ears. It made my resolve only stronger. I wanted to be a baker and a top one at that. My grandmother was my mentor. I was awestricken as I observed her work in the kitchen. I always thought her to be performing magic as she converted the most basic ingredients into the most delicious breads and cakes. Baking... read more

Buy one get one free”, was the sign that stared down at me. I was 10 when I insisted that my mother buy the multiple pack of apple juice, one for me and one for my sister. I could not fathom how we were getting a carton of juice absolutely free! We were not to be charged a cent extra! Not wanting to witness a tantrum in the middle of the supermarket aisle, she bought that pack and inadvertently created a loyal customer in me. I continued to buy that very same brand of juice even after the offer was discontinued. HURRAY!  For brand loyalty. At the very onset let me reiterate that I am not a marketing guy, but an entrepreneur looking to grow his business in this highly competitive marketplace. After trying various strategies for promoting my business... read more

My work requires me to travel, and I am often asked which is your favorite city? My answer has remained unchanged over the years and that is, I am happiest in the lap of mother nature. I am an outdoors enthusiast and every opportunity I get, is grabbed with both hands. Setting up my tent under the star lit sky with my solitude for company or walking through the forests looking through the canopy, spotting a native animal is my way of dealing with stress and anxiety so rampant in our lives. I clearly remember my first sojourn. It was special, as for the very first time I was allowed an overnight trip, not accompanied by my parents but in the company of two cousins barely a few years older. It would be an absolute understatement to say we were... read more

Some of the most dangerous things are weightless-fire, love, regret. -Jonathan Carroll This very intense quote by Jonathan Carroll is the crux of my thoughts today. More about fire and regret and a grandmother’s unconditional love.  My granddaughter all of six returned from the trip to the fire station all sad and cranky, very unlike her usual chirpy and buoyant self. On gentle prodding, she informed us that during the visit to the fire station the children were informed about fire hazardous materials, causes of fire at home and in the kitchen and a whole lot of useful information that every child must know. Her parents and I could not yet understand what had affected and disturbed her about the trip, as whatever she told us seemed very relevant and important information for a six-year-old. It was only when I... read more

Road trips with friends and family is an activity that many of us have undertaken. Considerable thought went into zeroing in on a location that was agreeable to all members, the toss usually being between beach or mountain. My father never participated in these discussions, he was more concerned about the condition of the car that we were travelling in. He said he owed it to the family, he took the responsibility of family safety very seriously. He never failed to relate the incident that occurred when he was a teenager. The front tire of his vehicle burst due to inadequate pressure! The act of kicking and punching the tire to check if there was adequate pressure has never been a foolproof inspection. It was his wise experience speaking, so we always left him in charge of the vehicle. My... read more

Do More of What Makes You Happy- COLOR

bulk polaroid art set
To be able to express your innermost feelings and be embraced by all, is the test of true acceptance. The inability to express oneself verbally is a challenge faced by many, often leading to reclusive and introverted behavior. We are all masters of our own identity. We may not be eloquent speakers or orators but can choose various other mediums for self- expression, music, dance, sculpturing, painting, doodling or even calligraphy and coloring. To be able to express oneself freely allows free flow of emotions, which in turn is very important for a healthy mental framework. I distinctly remember the first set of coloring pencils I received on my 4th birthday. I was so excited that I hugged it tightly and went to bed that night. I refused to open the box and use them lest the pencil points broke... read more

Personality and confidence are great friends. Where you have one, you will soon find the other. A person who is confident has a magnetic personality, the vice versa also stands good. One with a compelling personality is invariably confident. Fierce competition in every walk of life is a grim reality. The first impressions we make not only must be the best but must be a lasting impression too. To maintain an advantage and to create a positive impression on our coworkers or bosses we must make a conscious effort to be well dressed, well-groomed always. To walk into a room and make heads turn is in your hands literally. Either you will feel the complimenting gaze or you will sense the disapproval. You can choose to be either mediocre or magnificent! Applying makeup is an art. The different brushes used,... read more

In this age where reuse, recycle, reconstruct is the norm for almost everything TIME is an exception. One thing you can’t recycle is wasted time. This lesson learnt early in life goes a long way in shaping your personality. Nobody wants to be perceived as unreliable, rude with scant regard for another. If people think of you in such terms you most definitely are unpunctual and willingly making a habit of it. The saying LIKE FATHER LIKE SON does not apply to the virtue of punctuality. You do not inherit this virtue, it is not part of your DNA. It is a virtue that must be adopted conscientiously, nurtured and maintained. A person who is punctual says a lot about himself without trying too hard. It shows he has purpose, builds for himself a positive reputation and is regarded as... read more

I.T was always meant to be INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY but we are solely responsible of having mindlessly transformed it into IRRESPONSIBLE TECHNOLOGY. ALBERT EINSTEIN had rightly envisaged when he said.” I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots” We have created a generation of digital gaming addicts whose idea of fun is interacting with a screen, who have lost all their social skills, are strangers to their siblings and have evolved into emotionless robots. This was my observation on interacting with my grandchildren over the weekend. I had offered to look after them while the parents were fulfilling their work commitments.
