A few weekends ago, Little Planet had her favourite books blessed at a Saraswati puja here in North London. Saraswati is the Hindu goddess for learning and the books blessed included Where The Wild Things Are, The Cat In The Hat, Gruffalo's Child and In The Night Kitchen.
In a couple of weekends, Little Planet will be Christened - as a Catholic, like myself. Though it may be interesting for you to know that her father is an atheist, her maternal grandparents are Hindu, her paternal grandmother is Methodist, her paternal grandfather is Jewish and her childminders are Muslim. And when I was younger, I called myself a Zen Catholic - go ahead and Google the term, it makes for interesting reading - as I segued from Buddhism to Catholicism (but that's a whole other story). We truly are a 21st Century family as far as belief goes.
Here's her Christening dress:
My weekdays are filled with writing the second draft. That's it.
This is my life right now. So, until later...
