And have you con­tin­ued to fol­low the tra­di­tion?

Friday - - Leisure Food -

I started out en­ter­tain­ing like my mother did but have def­i­nitely pared it down over the years.

As a work­ing mum I don’t al­ways have time for more elab­o­rate en­ter­tain­ing, but on Di­wali I do lay the ta­ble, take out my nicest serv­ing dishes and all other pretty ta­ble things I have col­lected or been given over the years.

I do like to or­der some flow­ers as well and prob­a­bly cook more than I need to, but less than what mum did! a two-year-old son Aditey as well]. It is a fam­ily friendly place, the chil­dren al­ways have things to do and I have lots of friends who now live here so it feels very com­fort­able and fa­mil­iar.
