Unrefined Mama – why?

Firstly, although time-wise I’m an old hand at being a mama now, I still feel like the new girl in the class.  I’m mostly making it up as I go along and I secretly suspect that everyone else got a handbook I missed out on.

Secondly, I’m in the middle of a slow journey to unrefining my life and home wherever reasonably possible.  That is, I use natural hair, skin and body products; I use natural baby products; I’m working on switching all our cleaning products; I manage our budget and meals carefully so that we can organic as much as possible.

Thirdly, I always feel like one of those people who do things a little too quickly, a little too thoughtlessly, and end up looking a bit harassed and generally unkempt.  I look pretty unrefined to myself, in the mirror.

And lastly, uh…I seem to have taught my baby daughter that burps and farts are funny.  Hilarious, in fact.  I’m reckoning that’s pretty unrefined.
