- Aunty Mum
- 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.

Yarn Comfort Zones
So the bag is almost complete. I am now working on the strap but had to put it aside to do my least favourite job in the whole world . . . cover school books. The instructions (which I read avidly every time I do this chore) make it look so straight forward. What the don't tell you (and I always forget) is that if any tiny part of the book touches the wrap and you're not ready for it you're up a large creek with a very small paddle. I am so glad I got three rolls or we'd have been in trouble. One book, in fact, is almost a disaster. But, the covering is silver and sparkly and Kayley will love it regardless. Thankfully she doesn't have an eye for detail . . . unless it's a new piece of clothing, makeup or shoes.
Well, best hit the sack. I have three lots of swimming lessons tomorrow one of which I'm expected to take part. Those poor mums seeing me in a bathing suit. Still, it's worth it in the end. Added to this pressure I've got to think about the vicar coming to tea sometime next week. Our Fergus and Carolyn are just lovely, but being the anal retentive that I am I'll have to clean and tidy for the next five days in preparation and I still won't feel like it's right. Oh well, God understands I'm sure.
