Welcome to my blog!

If you ask me what my very favourite thing is I would not hesitate to say my family. I came into motherhood quite late on, and was immediately overwhelmed with how amazing it is. Now I would like nothing more than to be a Domestic Goddess, and surround my family in love, good food, beautiful things and lots of happy memories. And like the majority of families these days, we need to do it on a budget!

I firmly believe we all have a little bit of the Domestic Goddess inside us, just waiting to break out. Whether that is knowing how to make a roast chicken feed a family of 4 for a week, being able to make, repair or recycle clothes, hunting down a bargain, or simply turning everyday, simple things into pretty or useful items, with a little bit of imagination we can all dip in to the Goddess inside and make our lives that little bit more interesting.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy sharing my (challenging) journey into Domestic Goddessness!

Baking at 7am? What's that about?!

Yes, you read it right. I was baking at 7am this morning. Partly thanks to the rubbish bananas we got from the supermarket this week which were already on the turn after only a few days. Now I am trying desperately to stop wasting food, and did not want to throw them away (well I wasn't going to eat them...anyone who knows me knows I can only eat bananas when they are the right shade of yellow and without any blemishes at all!) and although my lovely daughter is rather fond of them, I'm sure even she couldn't eat 4 in a day.So the only solution it seemed was to turn them into something.
God bless Nigella. Banana Muffins. Although I'm not 100% sure it is her own recipe, but it was on her website.I can highly recommend these. Easy, relatively quick (bit slower when you have a small child pulling at your pyjama'd leg though!) and delicious.
The other 2 bananas will find their way into banana pancakes in the morning.
