About

 

 Hi there,
 
My name is Vinitha. My life pretty much revolves around my husband and our 4 year old boy.
 
Two months back we moved to UK from India as part of my husband’s job. Before that we were in US for 6 years – again as part of my husband’s job. Then came January of 2014 when we shifted back to India. 
In short for the past 6 months my routine pretty much included packing the bags and unpacking half of it and packing up again. Trust me its exhausting, specially for someone like me who hates the not knowing part, the non planning moments. 
I am not a spontaneous personI like spontaneous long drives, long walks, shoppings. That’s about it. 
I like to plan ahead.
But I’m deprived of that privillage for the last few months. 
I was a software professional- that was ages ago, before I became a wife and mother. I couldn’t work in US because of visa restrictions. 
Then when we were moving to UK people kept telling me, there I can work legally.
I regret for letting myself falling for that fool’s dream. You ask why. Let me tell you why. 
Remember I have a 4 year old at home. Play schools are full now. We are waiting to hear back about the school application. And schools reopen only in September. 
I went online. Found a few software companies, jobs which I felt is good for me. Then realized most jobs are little far from my place and needs me to be at work from 8 to 5 a day. Even if I manage to get a job from September when my son goes to school who will drop him to and pick him up from school? 
So there goes my career dreams. 
And there lies the how and why behind this blog’s birth.
I like to write. I secretly wish to be known as a writer. It will become a dream come true if I could ever publish a book. But trust me I am nowhere near in accomplishing that dream. Well, one day I might!!! *sigh*!!
I write on and off. Very very inconsitent. Its not that I don’t have ideas or thoughts provoking me into writing. Sometimes for reasons I quite dont know I dont write. Sometimes by the time I get time to sit and note my thoughts down those might have gone their way, leaving the empty paper behind. Does that happen to you too?? 
Mommy in me has been born and active since December 30th of 2009.
 This blog will be bearing the tiredness, sleep deprivations, the laughters, and all sort of mommy-hood experiences I have been through till now and those awaiting me.
You can catch me at Void Thoughts too.

    I’ve read that a blog is a great way to get started if you want to be a writer, and I’ve seen a few people do it! So good luck! And you might be able to find a job along with daycare arrangements for your son in a year or so, once you are settled in UK…
    And I’m so excited to see that I share my birthday with your son!! I know that it’s not a big deal, but I haven’t come across many people born on Dec 30th, so I’m excited!!

    So, this is the story of Vinitha Dileep :)

    Yeah, the writing stuff you said happens with me too 😛 But, that’s okay. Everything has perfect timing, I believe and someday you will start writing a book of you own.

    Good Luck Mam!!

    1. Vinitha says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Sankeerth. I will visit you soon. Have been putting off visiting so many blogs now owing to the change in schedules, and yours is one among those blogs. Will stop by soon. :)

    Hey! thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me some encouragement :) My son is 2 and i work so life is very crazy…I could totally identify with what you have written out here. I used to paint and read loads before and now I just can’t seem to do anything as I seem to be exhausted all the time! Well, I hope I can do some good as far as my writing is concerned….Good luck to you too – u seem to be doing a great job out here :)

    Thank you for visiting my story.. I did not find an entry from Friday Fictioneers… Regarding your career I think that many software companies would allow to work from home part time.. so maybe it is possible to combine. There is always a big need for software developer.. But writing is a lot of fun too…

    1. Vinitha says:

      Thank you for stopping by, Bjorn. You can read my entry to Friday Fictioneers on my other blog http://thevoidthoughts.com/2015/01/30/when-everything-fails/ To tell the truth, I am enjoying the writing part too much now to worry about my career. :) Writing is fun and liberating. :)Thank you for visiting. :)

    Hi Vinitha,

    I was browsing through several blogs when I landed on yours. Your about-me section was what got my attention instantly. I can relate to what you have written here, as I had pursued my Masters Degree in Finance & worked as a Research Analyst before getting married, and ever since marriage and the move to US, the visa restrictions forced me to be a stay-at-home mom to my now 3 year old. I must say however, I quite enjoyed the time that I got with my little one, which would not have been possible had I been working all along. I started blogging as a creative outlet too. :)

    Juggling parenting, work and fulfillment is tricky but I wish you well. My kids are now 12 and 10 and things have changed. They’re pretty busy with activities so instead of comforting a baby during the night, it’s taxi duty but these trips are also a good opportunity to touch base.
    All the best.
    xx Rowena
