Moving out? Keep yourself nice—ten top tips

Look Mama's Ten top tips for keeping yourself niceEventually there comes a time when we all move out of home. Well, most of us. Yes okay, I moved back a couple of times before I left for good but eventually my parents gave me the boot.

I designed this little number for parents to give their student child on departure. An A4 framed image to watch over them and help keep them on the straight and narrow.

To tell the truth it probably goes face down the second the parents hop in the car and wave their way all the way down the street (and around the corner). But it’s good for a laugh until then. After that it’s good as a little tray or extra-large drinks coaster.

For the newly moved out of home > ten top tips for keeping yourself nice:

  1. Don’t leave all your assignments until the last minute.
  2. Call home before home calls you.
  3. Clean your room occasionally.
  4. Drink safely.
  5. Be kind to people.
  6. Look after your friends.
  7. Don’t walk home in the dark, get a taxi. But don’t fall asleep in case your taxi driver is a weirdo.
  8. If something itches (and you know it shouldn’t), go see a doctor.
  9. Eat some fruit.
  10. Be happy—have fun!

“Ten top tips” isn’t available in the Look Mama shop as it was done to sell at a market I show up at occasionally. If you really want one email me (salesATlookamamaDOTcomDOTau) and we’ll sort something out no problem. Posted unframed it should be easy on the pocket.

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.

    I was always told to watch my “drink” because someone might put something in it.
    and
    Only charge what you can pay off next month.
    (ah….I tried to do the drink one but failed the credit card one.)
    😦
