I have been away on a couple of spiritual development courses lately, seek one with Streams and one with Invest. They were  both amazing and I feel very nourished! Many thanks to the grandparents who helped out with the little tiddler!

Tonight I am making cupcakes for a school coffee morning and getting to try out my new star nozzle for piping the top! I also hope to complete some creative projects. Maybe I’ll get some photos up at the weekend. I knowI didn’t get around to updating my Etsy shop yet but I will soon!

Right, off to cakeyness.

It is really hard to get baby clothes that aren’t pale pink! So I am making Mira a funky hat with acid green and bright pink.

Hat idea
I have been searching all over the net for a pattern for a hat that is made out of circles, pancreatitis but couldn’t find one, pregnancy so here I am trying to make one up. If anyone knows of one, let me know!

Shamelessly, I add another Mira picture – I know, I know… But I really can’t help it!

And here is some wire crochet – not too sure about it…

Eight weeks
The photo editor is being weird again, prostate
so here are some extracts from my diary…

28/05/07
Mira was eight weeks old yesterday. We had a wonderful day: she had her nails cut and filed and her ears cleaned with cotton buds for the first time, then after her bath she shivered so Mum wrapped her up in her white lacy shawl like a Babushka. We went to church and she was admired with such joy and wonder, like royalty! In the afternoon we took her to the beach for the first time and Dad bought us all ice creams. There was a coldish wind, but I took my shoes off and the sand was warm beneath my feet. I had an afternoon snooze for an hour and a half. Swaddled in her white blanket and curling up repeatedly on Ben’s shoulder, she looks like a cute white caterpillar, a bit Anne Geddes.

At church I went out to feed her in the purple room, which still has the giant furry purple crab I made in Guides. It looks like the product of a drug-induced hallucination. Sara came out and made me a cup of tea and we chatted about babies – she’s had six. She told me that eighteen years ago she lived in London and she used to go to Habitat where her friend worked and feed her baby in the café. However, there were also gay men who used to breastfeed with dollies, lifting up their jumpers etc; and you couldn’t say anything because of fear of discrimination. She said it used to clear the café in no time.

She woke up at 4am this morning, not what I had hoped for in my desperate desire to feel like a semi-rested human being instead of a soggy newspaper. She has done 5am or 6am a few times recently. I must remind myself she could be getting up twice in the night at this age. And not to feel sorry for myself.

I have now changed 300 nappies.

No, it’s not pronounced Myra!
