If you'd have asked me a year ago what my plans for March 2009 were, I would have told you that I'd be gearing up to return to my job as a Communications Director after the birth of our second child. Things didn't exactly go to plan.
On 31 July 2008 our daughter Sophia entered the world 10 weeks early (having already forced her mum into hospital for bed rest five weeks earlier) and turned our world upside down. I won't bore you with the details...it was a hard long slog until we got her home two days after her due date but she is now doing beautifully.
Her lungs, however, are still quite dodgy so childcare is not an option for at least another year - maybe two. And that means no return to work for me for at least another year - maybe two...and so, despite now having two beautiful girls under three (Olivia was born in July 2006) to look after, I have some time on my hands...not to mention a lot of creative energy to expend!
So, what to do with myself? I've decided to blog about my attempts to become a modern domestic goddess...I've got the cooking bit under control (I love ANYTHING to do with food) but could do with a bit of help in the cleaning and sewing departments. And, let's face it, we all have more to learn when it comes to child-rearing!
And what domestic goddess would be complete without a solid knowledge of world affairs (particularly things fashion and entertainment related). Expect a fair serve of celebrity content plus the odd thing of interest to we girls.
I hope you enjoy the blog, find something in it that you can relate to, and join in if you've got something to say!
