- 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.

Hair Cuts, Clothes and Girlie Things
So often I write about the children or my latest craft project or something like that: today I'm going to write about me.
Yesterday, recovering from horrid tonsils etc I took myself off to my lovely friend Doreen who proceded to transform my gastly hair and, it seems, my outlook on life. I haven't had my hair done since before Christmas and it really was starting to show. Added to this I had been feeling awful and it was nicer to be in ugly clothes that, while feel cosy and delicious, look atrocious.
Today I'm a new woman and I've been out and added to my wardrobe in a bid to keep that attitude going. Way out of my colour and style comfort zone I've bought this gorgeous black and purple top and a gorgeous necklace to go with it.
It's difficult to see in this photograph but the purples are the perfect match and it's not too way out there. While I love looking at truly funky jewellery on those I love, it's just not for me I'm afraid.
As you can tell, it's been a bit of a "me" day today. So often I'll go and get the children new clothes or shoes; I'll concentrate on making sure they're well dressed, warm and have all the things they need and forget about me. It's time to tart myself up every morning (and I mean every morning) and take time out each day to make sure I feel good about how I look instead of looking like a tired, grouchy and slouchy old mum all the time. Here's hoping the attitude sticks and I'm still in this mode in a few weeks time. I have to motivation of knowing that I see Doreen almost every day and if I haven't straightened, or at least blow dried my hair, she'll be telling me off for sure!
