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!

Mummy's Easter Egg

I've been carrying on with my #100Happydays photos on instagram/facebook/twitter and today's picture is my special Easter Egg from my Tornado Tig. It's not easy to see properly because it's covered in cling film (to keep the mini chocs in and little fingers out I should think!) But it is a painted jam jar, decorated by Teaghan Alice aged 2 3/4's (with a bit of help from Grandma!)  The apology is for making me stressed and cross because she is 2 3/4's and is doing it very well!  Even though it isn't my *own* handmade item I would like to share it on Wendy 's blog over on HandmadeHarbour
For Handmade Monday. I haven't posted there for a while so I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone !
