IPL in India has been getting hotter, just like their summer by the day and so does UK's weather. ( Right now temperatures are back to their teens) Well, we have accepted that UK's weather is always in terrible twos ;) and we have to live with it.  Unseasonably the UK got so warm, the blistering sun was firing its rays. and making it the warmest April day in nearly 70 years. Suddenly the beast from the east seemed long gone and some of us just couldn't bear the sudden change in weather, Lol, I managed to get a bit of sunburnt while doing gardening.

Life is full of challenges, no matter who you are? rich or poor, black or white, man or woman, when they are in your life, how you respond to them that makes a difference to your life, either they are thrown by life or people. Tell you the truth, I don't like to face any challenges, and I like to live in my comfort zone. But then recently I joined a group called Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge, the brainchild of Priya's Versatile Recipes and currently, lead by Mayuri of Mayuri's Jikoni.
