- 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.

Gloves and things
I have to confess that knitting the second glove was a little more difficult than the first as you have to think backwards a bit. Sometimes I get a bit frustrated with patterns that simply state "Make as first but in reverse". If only it were as simply as sitting backwards to knit it.
We're far from disappointed though and I have a feeling they'll be used a lot this winter and Kayley will be thankful for them. She'll be asking for a matching scarf next.
We have a banana cake in the oven (the timer has just gone off) and three hungry boys waiting patiently for it to cook and cool so they can eat it so I'd better get cracking. Oh, which reminds me, there were no photographs of the much anticipated macaroons. Why? They were all eaten in seconds so not time for photographs. I think Nicky confessed to having five so they must have been good. I've ordered "dummy" cakes for next time so they can at least make it to the tower stage before being eaten.
