- 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.

My New Toy
I looked at it when he brought it around and panic set in. I could only remember the G and Am chords. Thankfully he brought around chord charts too and this morning after Mainly Music I printed off some sheet music. I have spent the afternoon sitting on my bed and now I can play three songs. I fingertips are raw from the unforgiving steel strings, my wrist aches from bending around the fret and my fingers don't span as far as they used to, but I'm feeling very positive for day 2.
Because it's been snowing nearby (we had sleet on the orchard yesterday) it's been too cold to get out in the garden so it's been the perfect opportunity to work on something like this.
So crochet and music. Ahhh, it's almost the perfect life!
