Get To Know Me Tag

The other day Sandra invited me to take part in a Tag Challenge, and so I stored the email, ready to have a go. Then today my blog Sis Erika, decided to also name me as someone to answer this series of questions… so I figured I had better do it, now two people want to ‘know more’about me!

1. Who are you named after? I don’t believe I was named after anyone specific. But what I do know is that my name, Ratinder, was meant to be! It is a custom  in the Sikh religion for the parents to go to the temple after a baby is born. Prayers are done, and then a random page is opened in the Guru Granth Sahib (our holy book) and the letter that starts the first page is the letter that the baby’s name should start with. My parents already wanted to call me Ratinder, Ritu for short, but the rest of the family were expecting this tradition to be upheld. Pops went, and R came out, but his sisters didn’t believe him, so it was done again with one of his sisters as a witness, and lo and behold, R came out again. So you see, I was destined to be Ratinder/Ritu!

2. Do you like your handwriting? My writing never stays the same… I was like this as a child too, always experimenting with styles, so sometimes I hate it, and sometimes I love it, but can never keep it the same!

5. Do you still have your tonsils? No… they departed when I was 4! I still remember the hospital, and the cot my mum slept on to be with me. I remember the tomato soup I had to eat, and the fact that I could have untold amounts of ice cream to soothe the throat!!!
