The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Hiya…my name is Jacqui and I have taken this giant leap into the megaspace that is blogging…

I am a wife, mother and law graduate who cherishes everything about my family and home. We are an incredibly close family, with my husband (Paul) working from home, and my two children being home educated by yours truly!

I am a self-confessed sewing nut, having used my talent for over twenty years, creating wedding gowns and dance costumes. Recently I have taken a back seat in this realm to finish my degree and concentrate on my children’s education. However, this hasn’t stopped me from continuously and obsessively downloading sewing patterns and designs for my embroidery machine…some of which I will share with you!

I am trying to simplify my life and the stuff that surrounds me. As a home educator, I sometimes feel that I am drowning in piles of worksheets, which can somewhat overpower and overwhelm me. I dare to say that despite my inner mess and chaos, I have managed to support my daughter through to uni!! Viola, success! Now I just have to replicate this success with my eleven year old…if you are a home educator too, then you will be able to find printables and goodies to help you in your homeschool life!

I am also at a point in my life where I am seeking a healthier way of living. We presently reside on a beautiful country estate in Kent, with rolling hills and farmers fields surrounding us. With all this beauty knocking at our front door each and every day, I am finding that I am forced to follow a less ‘fast-food’ diet and approach our eating habits with a bit more care. So why am I mentioning this? Well, I intend to proactively follow a healthier regime, which I will share to my blog, just in case you, too, wish to give my new lifestyle menu a try!

Then, how to combat the chaos…I intend to hygge my life, clear out the clutter, and insert more organisation!! I hope you find my organisation posts handy too…

In conclusion, you may have noticed that this blog could include just about anything!! From arts & crafts, diy & sewing, cooking, healthy living, cleaning, teaching, home schooling, reading, writing, organisation, positive thinking, how to posts, money & finance, business and everything in between!!

All I ask is for you to subscribe so I can continue to do this for free for you!!

Thanks for reading!

warm regards
