So here’s the thing: it’s the middle of May and I am sitting wearing a fleece over my, not inconsiderable, layers as I type. I have committed the cardinal sin of putting the heating on because even the dog is shivering. There is a very real chance that summer has been and gone for me. [...]
About Kelly InnesKelly 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.)

Oh man, those holidays seemed to last forever. I don’t know about you but I never imagined that I would ever have a white Easter! And this relentlessly wintery weather has made the holidays seem so unbearably long. But, now that they are back in the halls of learning and you are, briefly, free to [...]
My goodness, I am sitting watching the announcement of the new Pope with my heart thumping. I can’t help it: I love Pomp and Ceremony. I blame growing up in the Armed Forces, where everything has ceremony attached. I wonder if the new Pope had any idea how his day would end when he woke [...]
Can I just say how-the-heck-did-we-make-it-to-the-middle-of-February-already? No, genuinely! Half the country is on half-term and we are headed to Galway on Friday and I thought I had more time. Argh. But enough of me, lets talk about how panicked you are. Tell me you are. No, tell me. Make it up if you have to. Oh no, [...]
This is it, people, 2013. We survived the end of the World and the Christmas Binge and the repeats on TV. We’ve stepped over the threshold of a New Year. Even better, the schools have gone back, and routines that had been abandoned for the past fortnight (in my case nearly a month) are back [...]
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmaaaaasssss. Aren’t you just a little excited? No? Well, obviously not: there are just days until the schools break up so you need to make the most of your time alone. So forget about Christmas cards and wrapping presents
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmaaaaasssss. Aren’t you just a little excited? No? Well, obviously not: there are just days until the schools break up so you need to make the most of your time alone. So forget about Christmas cards and wrapping presents and queuing in the Post Office to pick up a parcel that [...]
Yo, yo, yo! Wad’up, homies! Sorry – listening to Puff Daddy circa 1996 and the current craze for high-tops and baggy pants has made me go all gansta, innit? But what is up is a list of ten stunning, superb and superlative posts that I have come across whilst I should have been working [...]
