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!

And the countdown begins...

... Just under a week to the Big Day and it's going to be a busy week. I have 2 cakes to make and 3 to ice...but the cakes are sponge so really needed to leave them as long as possible.
But I can confidently claim to be on track and not stressing out...(well not much anyhow!)
Favours - done, centrepieces - done. All that remains is the cake... and a small matter of some jewellery for me to wear on the day too!
I have ordered some lovely cotton dk (God bless ebay) and am itching to start on a brooch to wear, and my lovely husband has offered to make my earrings...although I'm half tempted to have a stab myself. Perhaps I will get that box of beads out when a certain miss is in bed.
I have several cards to make as well this week. Why are there so many people with birthdays in October!My sister's scarf is all finished now and I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out. I have to say The Happy Hooker is a fab book for anyone who isn't that confident with crochet, you just have to remember to translate the terms from American to English which actually isn't as hard as it seems. Thanks for the tip Sharon!
So no pictures this week but I promise plenty after the big day!
