Time is slipping away through my fingers and I never seem able to catch it. It may be very quiet here at Fantasy Landscape but that isn’t a reflection of life — more the polar opposite, as it is rare these days to get a quiet moment. While I don’t get a chance to sit down and write often, I wish I could do so more than ever since there are so many moments I don’t want to forget.
I have been busy with lots of projects — some still waiting to be blocked, others posted off to friends before I remembered I should take a photo. I’m crocheting a rippled blanket or two, like so many seem to be at the moment, and finally got around to planting my hyacinth bulbs into glass vases for some flowery winter cheer.
The little boy is six months old already — well, nearer to seven months old now as it has already been more than a fortnight since his half-birthday. He’s a bundle of joy and mischief, and keeps me on my toes. Weaning is going well — he currently has two meals a day, porridge with fruit puree in the morning, and some other fruit or veg purees in the afternoon. His favourites are pear, broccoli, butternut squash and mango — the boy eats more exotic foods than his mum and dad! I really enjoy making up his little portions of food and the freezer is suddenly full of pear cubes, butternut squash cubes… one squash makes an awful lot of baby meals!
He even enjoyed spinach.
