The past two years have been all about adjusting to motherhood and finding my way through it via craft. The out pouring of this came in the form of my blog Aunty Mum. Now I'm finally finding my feet, the children are growing, I'm getting some independence and my interests are morphing . . . into cooking. Join me in exploring creativity in many forms, food, fabric, frowns and laughter.

Baking Soda!


I got the most wonderful gift last night . . . a book all about baking soda and all the things it can be used for. I know! It sounds like an unusual gift but it's fabulous. This morning I was all eager to try it out so Kayley and I made some scouring scrub and attacked my ensuite. It sure goes a great job on stainless steel taps and stuff, great job on porcelain and not too bad on the shower. Now I'm eager to try out some of the other things, like stain remover, shampoo and soooo much more.

So that kind of set the scene for the day. It's been a Martha Stewart eat your heart out day. I made batch of lemon cupcakes and iced them. Yum they were delicious. By this evening I had a beautiful roast in the oven, a lemon merengue pie (made virtually from scratch) in waiting, the lawns were all mowed, kids bathed and all of us feeling a whole lot better than we have all weekend due to some much needed sleep this afternoon. And the best part? School's back tomorrow. Yay!
