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!

I won! I won!

It's not often I can say that I won something because I so rarely do. But I had a lovely surprise in the post the other day, when I received my first official blog candy. It came courtesy of Jo over at Everyday Adventures of a Yummy Genius (you can also find her at The Stamperie ) and it consists of a large handmade gift tag, some beautiful ribbon and some brown wrapping paper.
It really does look even nicer in the flesh, and I am thrilled with it. I believe Jo intends to sell similar sets in the future at around £2.99 and I honestly think they are worth every penny of that. Please have a wander over to Jo's blogs and see what other lovely things she has been making!

All that remains is for me to now decide who will be the lucky recipient of a present wrapped with this lovely set, and whether the gift I choose is worthy of it!
