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 Love Tea!

As you will be aware if you know me at all!
I will happily drink any kind of tea, with milk or without. Black, green, white, herbal... there's very few I have tried that I didn't like. I don't have a favourite, although my preferred tipple is probably Earl Grey or Lady Grey with a bit of lemon.
But you can't beat Tetley!

So you can imagine how happy I was to come hone yesterday afternoon, from traipsing round the shops with a hot and grumpy baby, to be greeted by a Big White Box. Inside that Big White Box was a selection of fine teas from Chash who are a Fine Tea Company. I had entered a giveaway on Isle of Tea and I was one of the ten lucky winners! It was a generous prize, too! Four varieties of the teas they offer on their website.

I couldn't wait to get the kids in bed so I could sit down and enjoy a cup. Unfortunately that turned into quite a challenge. The phrase Sod's Law springs to mind.  But eventually I managed it, and enjoyed a cup of their Fountain of Youth blend which was lovely!

Just waiting for the opportunity to try the rest now!

Til next time!
