If you had told me five years ago (2008) that the greatest joy in my life would be being a housewife, I certainly wouldn't have believed you. I was newly and happily married, half-way through my first degree and planning on a Masters and potentially a PhD after that. I loved academics and wanted to stay in that world my whole life. Children were certainly in my future, but somewhere distant and unseen. My husband and I ate cheese-toasties almost every night and I did washing when we were getting desperate.
Now I'm a full-time stay at home
Mama with no intention of going back to work and every intention of having three
more babies. I love my son and my husband more than I can say, and the best
thing in my life is looking after them. I find so much fulfilment in keeping a
tidy house, cooking homemade meals and looking after the men in my life.
So, follow me in my day-to-day life. To many (if not most?!) it will be
dull. I'll be writing about my continued effort to be a good cook (something I'm
not too bad at) and a decent baker (something I'm terrible at). I'll be
detailing my attempts at good housekeeping (getting better at) and learning new
skills such as sewing (honestly can't do a stitch). Any tips I learn along the
way I'll be sharing, and would welcome your tips in return.
