Kia Ora & welcome to This Mum Rocks!- a blog by a retro, op shopping, suburban Mum
Thanks for visiting! I’m Heather Baron, a Canadian who met & married a Kiwi, living in Christchurch New Zealand. I’m now in my 30’s with a young one trying to make sense of this thing called parenthood/adulthood.
Why This Mum Rocks:
Originally I started This Mum Rocks, to compliment my weekly radio programme that aired on ArrowFM 92.7. The focus of This Mum Rocks changed after I shifted to Christchurch and discovered many of the Garden city’s great Op Shops.
I post my thrift and op shop finds weekly on Monday/Tuesday (depending on the time zone you’re in) and share these posts via several link parties in NZ, Canada, the US, and the UK.
If time allows, I also plan to post about my veggie garden adventures and urban cycling experiences in CHCH.
