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!

Meet Herman

Herman is a sourdough friendship cake mix that you lovingly stir and feed for 9 days and on the 10th day you split it into 4 and pass it on keeping one portion back to make your own cake. Or start the whole process off again of course!

I got mine from my dad this morning. Caoimhe was very excited and couldn't wait to get him into the bowl when he arrived!

I'm not sure what kind of cake we'll make him into yet but there are loads of versions on the internet so I'll have a good look with Caoimhe and we can decide together.

I'll keep you updated on his progress :)
