A look back at 2011 – Q2

January 14, 2012


Well April was a month we will never forget. April Fools’ day was my last day at work — my colleagues gave me a lovely card and a very generous gift of Amazon vouchers. It was a month of two babies — at the start of the month J became an Uncle when his sister gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. And of course, towards the end of the month, my precious Baby D arrived! In the weeks in between, well, I kept myself busy but I’m not entirely sure doing what — enjoying the glorious spring weather, knitting, baking, and putting my feet up as much as possible, by all accounts.


In May, Baby D was settling in at home. I somehow managed to find the time to finish his hooded striped top, but thinking back I have no idea how I found the time to do anything creative at all back then. We travelled with Baby D for the first time — to visit his Great Grandma on her 90th birthday!


Baby D was becoming more alert and I made him a cheery floor mat. I was also working on another summer garden crochet blanket — which I have since decided I don’t actually like very much. There’s just something weird about the colours. I bought some amazing Derwent Inktense Blocks as soon as they hit the shops and was very excited about giving them a try — but you know what? I still haven’t taken the celophane off the box. Ah well, I have come to learn that with a baby in the house, some things get deprioritised. There will be time for drawing and painting and all those other things further down the line. For now, my boy is the most all-consuming and wonderful thing — and becomes more so every day.
