I thought I might give a brief overview of things you're likely to find and things you probably won't ever find me posting about here at Domesblissity.
You won't find posts on Mother's Day presents, Father's Day presents, Valentine's Day (well, not for a while yet). My Mother isn't alive anymore, nor is my (ex) mother-in-law or any grandmothers. If the children want to make something for their Dad then I'll help them but I won't be getting all creative. No love in my life other than my children so maybe a special heart shaped cake on the day but here in Australia, we don't celebrate Valentine's Day like it is done in the US.
You will find a lot of baking and meal recipes which are based on basic pantry staples and seasonal produce. You will also find a feature called "Mystery Ingredient Monday" where I go through the pantry, fridge or freezer and see what needs using up and offer different ways to use it.
Everything Thursday, I hold a linky party called "Thriving on Thursdays" when I ask you, my readers, to link up as many or as little of YOUR recipes, crafts, financial, makeup or DIY tips and posts. The following Thursday I will feature my favourite 3 food related posts and my favourite 3 non food related posts, eg DIY project or craft etc. Come Easter or Christmas time, I might feature those theme related posts linked up in a special feature post for say 4 weeks prior to the event.
You won't find interior design photos of my home. After 8 years of letting things go in the house, since the children arrived and having to do everything myself, with the home and the children, I've got a lot to do to get my home up to a standard I was used to. In a way, I'm glad I'm not as 'anal' as I was but it certainly needs a lot of work. I have only ever done some minor furniture refurbishing but hope to do more this year.
I have always been one who sews and crafts a lot but haven't explored those creative pursuits these last couple of years for various reasons, the main one being time. When my daughter was born, I sewed all of her outfits and crocheted matching caps, vests and jackets. Why is it when you think they're older, you'll have more time for it and I'm the opposite at the moment. I'll get back to it once everything is settled in my personal life and I'll share what I'm up to with you.
My blog is all about being frugal, thrifty, making do and trying not to spend too much on the everyday things. I do like the finer things in life and will sacrifice in other ways just so I can enjoy those things.
If there's anything you'd like to see more of, drop me a line. If you're having trouble with a recipe or an ingredient, let me know. I might be able to help. I'm not expert. Just a half decent home cook I suppose with a lot of practice and good teachers, my Mum and my Nanna.
