- 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.

This year we've had a lovely time . . . so far. As I had to speak at church this morning on my unique motherhood stories I was determined not to be the grouchy, stressed out mother I usually am on a singing Sunday so this morning we put on our High Five DVD and boggied down to some funky tunes until breakfast time. I'd gotten up early and showered, done my hair and makeup and dressed so that I had plenty of time to get the kids ready.
Afterwards she enjoyed a cup of tea and a piece of very rich chocolate cake with everyone. It was quite funny really as she saw women she used to play golf with and sat there proudly saying "Yes, Belinda's my daughter." I think we always know how proud of us our parents are but don't often experience the full force of it; today I did and it's made me feel very loved.
I know that tomorrow is another day and we'll all be back to our normal selves, but I'm sure I'll remember this Mothers Day next year. I couldn't be happier being a mum and look forward to many more celebrations of our little family.
