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!

A busy week with not much done!

It has been an odd  week really.I think I've come across the perfect chocolate cake for the top tier of my mum's wedding cake - it's an adaptation of a Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall one and since it is still moist and edible even after 4 days or so I'm sure it will be good on the day. My only job now really is to work out how much cake batter I need for the size... but I'm sure it won't hurt me to *practice* making it a few more times!

One or two cards have been made and I'm actually posting some photos today!

We've also been cutting and sticking to make a little scrapbook for little 'un. Some fun crafting that didn't involve torment over whether things are straight or cut properly, or measured and beaten correctly! And for those who wish to know... yes, pva glue does come out of hair without tears or the need of a hairdresser...!

I have made a (feeble) attempt at felting. Not overly pleased with the results, but I'm sure something can be done with the mass of matted fibres currently drying on my kitchen table... if anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them...

Well it's tea time now so time to attempt something creative with a cheese sandwich and a biscuit cutter... does my imagination know no bounds?!!

Toodle pip!
