I don’t know where the Christmas break went, but whilst you were busy enjoying the break from the alarm clock and trying to figure out where you were going to put all the new toys your children were lucky enough to receive, I have been scouring the internet for posts that will keep you reading […]
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.)

Hello! And welcome to Good Reads December 2014- the last for 2014. So this is it- in a week it will all be over, we’ll be pushing towards 2015 and before you know it we’ll be thrust blinking into the daylight of 2015 and wondering how the school holidays disappeared so quickly! I’ll tell you […]
The great decline to Christmas has begun now that Halloween is over. The Ads are all over the TV, the Strictly Come Dancing Contestants have been whittled down to the serious contenders, and there is debate on social media about what will be Christmas Number One. As someone who has a birthday at the end […]
Bonjour friends, strangers and Doctor Who Fans, how are we this splendid afternoon? Happy to have the school routine back in place? Grieving the passage of time that means your baby has gone off to Reception/Secondary School/University? Then gather close and we shall comfort each other. I’ll dig out a blanket, a box of tissues […]
So how’s it going? How are the children? How are you enjoying the summer holidays? At the moment of writing I am five weeks in and counting the days until school goes back in September but by the time you read this I shall be on our actual Summer Holiday an eight hour flight away and […]
Welcome to Good Reads July 2014. Are you feeling the burn of holiday madness or are you still struggling to get your children out of bed for the last few days of school? I always find it hard to decide whether I like holiday or term time more but in this heat I am tempted […]
Hola Ladies, Gents, Boys, Girls and Goldfish, are we enjoying the World Cup thing? As I am waist deep in watching Gossip Girl on Netflix the only reason I know that there is some giant Media-Consuming Sports-related thing going down in Brazil is the sudden increase in the number of British and English flags flying […]
Hello! How are things? Did you miss me? Probably not, but to flatter my own ego I am going to assume that you pined. For hours. And speaking of pining, with half-term a hop skip and jump away I am confident that I shall be pining for school mere minutes after 9am on Monday morning, […]
March is here and it brought Spring: the leaves are beginning to bud on the tress, the daffodils are blooming in full force throughout the land and I feel at last that I can put my washing out on the line without it taking three days to dry! Of course Spring also means that we […]
The season of Love is upon us! Are you feeling it? No, me neither. I’m mostly feeling wet and miserable. Then I tell myself to snap out of it because I do not live in the Somerset Levels and Lord knows that they have been wet and miserable since well before Christmas. On which happy […]
Golly the year has got off at a pace! I’m already cruising towards February and feeling every bit as cold and damp as the weather. I do hope that Christmas brought you all your heart desired. At the very least I hope you and your sanity survived in a better state than our car, which […]
As we hurtle towards 2014 there is still little chance to sit and reflect on 2013 which will, I imagine, be remembered above all else as the year that the World mourned the loss and celebrated the life of Nelson Mandela. There is nevertheless much to be cheerful about, much to be grateful for, much […]
Can anyone tell me where this year is going? I couldn’t believe it when the latest Strictly series started because it signalled the beginning of Christmas. Eeek! Anyhow, I won’t hang around banging on about all that I have to do before Christmas, which is a mere six weeks away. Instead, forget about the ‘C’ […]
You’re feeling it, aren’t you? The switch has been flipped from summer to winter and as the temperature of the British thermostat drops to meet winter standards there are a couple of blissful weeks where the leaves fall like post-wedding confetti bringing chaos to commuters on train lines and joy to dog walkers and small […]
So how was your summer? Did you go anywhere nice? Are you glad the children are back at school? Did I miss any crucial hairdresser-style questions? No, good. So get the kettle on, quickly whilst no-one is looking. I’ll dig out the secret stash of biscuits and we can have a good old catch up. […]
The 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? If so, settle down, shove the children in front on […]
The School Holidays have arrived in the house of Domestic Goddessery. I am a little nervous of all those weeks stretching ahead of me when I have nothing but two weeks in sunny Norway planned. The summer holidays, though an awesome and magical time in the life of a child do nothing but fill me […]
The countdown is on: less than a week until the event of the year, BritMums Live. I, of course, will be there. So if you are too, stop by and say hello. You won’t have trouble finding me: I’m very loud and I have really nice pink shoes. Plus if I get the chance I […]
