Bhola 2011 and beyond...

Returned from another Trustees Meeting in respect of Bhola's Children.  It's always a delight to catch up with everyone - and this time to introduce Simon to them.  It seems that despite the occupational hazards of living in the Bay of Bengal (monsoon, cyclone, flooding), the home is going from strength to strength.  Ali and the children remain self-sufficient in terms of vegetables and fish, and the plans for a purpose built workshop instead of the haphazard lean-to, are well in hand - funds permitting.  This will allow a more comprehensive training for carpentry and tailoring for the older young people, thus giving them a better chance of making their own independent living when they leave Bhola Garden.  Dinah is off this week for her visit and I think we have plans to take Simon next October... it really will be his second home.

Speaking of Simon - a milestone for him in that he ate his first non-milk food today!  Or rather he smeared a pin-prick of banana everywhere in sight; banana carnage doesn't cover it.  'Outraged astonishment' is the best way to describe the first taste but since he's still licking his fingers hours on, I'd say it was a success.  If only sleeping came as easy... don't worry, says Julianne, our lovely Health Visitor, it'll come....  She went away with a copy of A Blonde Bengali Wife.  I'm not sure of the etiquette of blogging your own book to professionals just trying to do a job, but her donation was much appreciated!
