- 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.

What's so sweet about the school holidays I hear you ask? The fact that they're nearly over. I cannot believe that two weeks has been more stressful than a whole six weeks of summer. But, we're on the home stretch now and I'll have a couple of hours alone with the supermarket today so I'm not complaining.
Yesterday we took another trip to the toy library. That's the beauty of such things. The toys we got last week had lain idle in the newly appointed toy room for a few days, I had three restless children so I packaged them all up and exchanged them for some new ones (the toys were packaged, not the children). Alas, things all got a little sandy last night.
In the midst of dinner cooking I looked over to see great piles of wet sand on the carpet and Rogan on the sofa cuddling his digger and dump truck with dry sand all around him. Needless to say he had a look of complete bliss on his face. There had to have been a look of thunder on mine as I'd got stuck into beautifying our living space yesterday morning. Mortified at the state of my lounge is putting it mildly. Upon looking at it this morning it doesn't seem nearly so bad. The sand in this picture is just the left overs of what I couldn't scoop up and throw outside . . . along with the dump truck in the first picture.
