- 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.

Some Days are Just Bliss
I had to pick our little man up early as Nana wasn't feeling well. I had thought that might put the kybosh on my cruisy afternoon. It was, however, brilliant as he and our little one played for hours and they played well.
I dragged the sun umbrella out of hibernation, got the outdoor seat covers out of hiding and grabbed my crochet bag out of the car and settled down for a wonderful afternoon.
I love summer because we all live outdoors as much as possible and I can let the children feel that I'm really a part of what they're doing but they're still doing their own thing.
Unfortunately the weather started to close in, I got colder and colder and I had to retreat indoors. But it wasn't long until my neighbour turned up with her two girls, a bottle of wine and lots of laughs. Now I'm tyring to get through the last ten minutes before bedtime. I'm sure such a fabulous day will get me through!
