Good Reads: Mistakes, divorce and Mars Bar moose

good readsThe weeks are sailing by aren’t they? OK maybe not sailing but certainly chugging along with determination. The whole world has been wrapped in the the New Royal Baby bubble for several weeks and I bet you’d be delighted to have a little distraction, yes?

About Kelly Innes

Kelly is the face behind the vintage silhouette at Domestic Goddesque. She eats too much cookie dough to have a waist that small. She is a thirty-something Mother of two absurdly photogenic little girls, is married her beloved DH and endures daily battles-of-will with the dog she refers to as the Wonder Hound. She likes to avoid housework as much as possible, preferring to bake, craft and drink cocktails. Sorry, did I say cocktails? I meant coffee. And nap. She likes to nap too. When not blogging, you can find her haunting Facebook for interesting snippets of gossip, or throwing her wit around the twittersphere. (She may have made that last bit up too: she's not that funny.)
