I have a lot of passions in my life, of which I should progress and focus on a lot more
Remembering a film recently viewed “stepford wives”; leaves me feeling like wow you could really dress that great and have a tidy home, meals cooked and still able to engage in family life and more social life.
My passions are –
My loving family
Papercraft – card making
Culinary skills – my inner goddess screams to be a mix of Nigella !
Domestic cleaning goddess – following Flylady
Make up artistry
So a snippet of my passions I do love all of these and possibly more and love to combine them, I take photographs of almost anything and everything, iphonographer springs to mind; along with apps such like Instagram, and others which give me the opportunities to frame and be creative.
Cookery I love but confidence is an issue, like with a lot of things confidence for me is a major issue, tend to do a massive bulk cook session as I have containers to store in the freezer and ready for the coming days ahead, would be great to have a full months batch cooked; not just dinner but deserts to, need to look into the space, we have that is available to me, previously when purchased fresh vegetables and found a lot was wasted and thrown away, but now I’ve discovered the beauty of frozen vegetables, really do need to portion control these for per meal.
Due to London whether we are currently having it is spring/summer… Which is welcomed highly, would enjoy taking little moo to a fruit picking farm..
Watching a programme at the moment on Americas poor children, very sad to see the poverty that the recession has caused to so many people in many countries, makes me feel lucky to have the family I have and to think my money situation isn’t great but were not at a cross roads that bad… My heart goes out to them and hope they find salvation soon.
In my opinion,right or wrong.. I feel we have exported all our working factories, we used to make clothes, cars and such, in the Second World War we had dire straights rationing, back to basics.
The example shows the woolwich arsenal gunnery factory; where my lovely nan, made bullets and weapons from recycling cans and such, we was all very resourceful back then and coped money wise, I did think to follow a lady on YouTube, who recently passed away, thoughts go out to her family, she made recipes for the Great Depression, to which I might give a try to see if my little family enjoy them, I shall post a link of this lovely lady named Clara, http://www.greatdepressioncooking.com/Welcome.html
Nigella, Jamie Oliver, the hairy bikers are to name a few of my favourite chefs not forgetting Mr F Word; Gordan Ramsey … My obsession with Pinterest comes in handy for compiling lovely recipes
Along with helpful hints and tips, to help us not too organised people work out our budget and clean home, with a lot more time with family and to socialize.
Hard thing about being a mother is knowing good places that are inexpensive to take, also a lot handy to pre pack lunch and food as some cafe’s are stupidly priced;
Another reason Pinterest is amazing as they show really good tips for easy packed lunches that are also cheap and can be pre-made..
I could write about local places that I can take my little moo, for short days out, I am hoping when I pass my driving tests that I can take off for the weekend after school grab her and we can all go seaside, would have to find cheap hotel that we can go to, looking forward to sharing the hopefully fun times ahead with you all, and hopefully show people about London UK …
