Earlier, my blog used to be mostly about me: my world, travel, work-life, and general musings.

In September 2007, my husband and I were delighted to adopt two little girls, Mrini and Tara (”the twins”), from Pondicherry, India. We are now in the process of legalising their adoption. The twins have, naturally and inevitably, become a major focus of our lives. Many of my posts are to do with them and their antics, or are related to children and parenting incidents in general. Whatever does not in any way relate to the twins, falls, loosely, into the “I” part of The Twins & I.

If you want to read only about the twins, check Twinnings or Travelling with the Twins.

If you came here looking for my book, or if you would like to know what my book is about and where you can buy it, click here.

Oh, and if you’re wondering why on earth my url is “poupee97”, part of the explanation is here and another part of it is here.

I love to read, too, so leave me a comment. You can be anonymous, if you like.
