Menu Planning with Allergies {Home-Making}

I don’t know about you, but our food bill has got completely out of hand over the past twelve months. What with everyone being at home all the time and needing to be fed multiple times a day, the food allergies (Charlotte is both dairy and gluten free, whilst Abigail is dairy free), feeding four…

Home Made Fire Lighters

One of my favourite things about autumn and winter is using our log burner in the living room. There is honestly nothing more cosy than watching a film, snuggled under patchwork quilts, with the fire crackling and flickering specks of reds and oranges around the room. Last winter, we seemed to use a lot of…

Can I Have a Well Stocked Pantry Without an Actual Pantry?

I have this goal.....a long held, nearly impossible (for me) goal, but one I shall keep working on until the day I die.  That goal?  To have a well stoked, well organised pantry.  Thing is, I don't own a pantry.  I don't really even own kitchen cupboards which we could use as a pantry. We…

Be-you-tiful Science: How to Make Your Own Lip Balm

A couple of weekends ago, my four girls and I cooked up a beauty storm in the kitchen!  Oh. my. goodness.  What a mess!  I had kind of decided that we had most of the ingredients for a rather nice lip balm.  I'm guessing my beauty range is as ad hoc as my cooking.  It…

Around the House in 80 Hours: Progress Week One – Bathroom

This week we have concentrated on the bathroom, which has needed such a lot of work done to it.  We only have one bathroom between the seven of us (we have a second loo upstairs but only one bath/shower), which means this bathroom has to work hard and, as a corner room off the kitchen…

Home Making Goals – Five in Five

I feel I need to apologise for all my posts in the coming week.  They will likely be boring for most of you to read.  I want to write some goals down for the forthcoming term.  I have in the past always written my schooling goals down but no others.  This term I want to…
