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!

Party planning

How wonderful is this weather!  Even though it's a little bit on the warm side for me really (I don't *do* hot sticky sun probably because I am so fair and I burn so easily) and the nights are a bit uncomfortable for sleeping...but the sunny days just make everything seem happier, don't you think? :)

I'm hoping it sticks around just a bit longer as it is my middlest' s 2nd birthday soon and to celebrate we are having a teddy bears' picnic. Although we've made alternative arrangements in case of inclement weather,  it would be a shame not to have it in the garden. So please cross your fingers that the weekend of the 28th july is a nice one!

Plans are under way for a fun party. Lootbags have been collected and i have an idea what food I'll be servinh too. The cake will, I'm afraid to say,  be a bought one. I was hoping to make it myself but I don't think I have the time. I have managed to finish the bunting for the party after a couple of setbacks - I misread the pattern I had planned so didn't have enough blue flags, then I realised that by rectifying that I would end up with 13 flags which obviously would never do! And finding time to sit behind my sewing machine was difficult too. But over all I really enjoyed making it.

I used 3 different fabrics (one you might recognise as left over from my sling) some scraps of fabric cut into flowers and buttons from my button stash and a long piece of satin effect ribbon.  Amd I'm quite pleased with.the end result.

I'm linking up once again with Wendy over on  Handmade Monday Have a look over there at all the lovely blogs and I hope you have a great week.

Til next time!

I like your bunting - I keep meaning to have a go myself but I've not quite got round to it yet. Fingers crossed for good weather.

I really hope that the weather does hold for. Your bunting looks great and will be able to used more often than a homemade cake would!
