I am not a great writer (or even a good one for that matter) and my English skills in general leave a lot to be desired. I hope that in writing regularly both of these will improve but until they do, please excuse my spelling and grammatical errors and my often plain descriptive language.
I am a stay at home mum (Miss Berry is 13 months). My job/career is to provide a loving and somewhat clean home for us all, to maintain our financial situation and ensure we are living within our means and are saving for our home. By not working outside the home I am able to save us a lot of money by cooking our meals and snacks, shopping for specials, mending and making our clothes, maintaining a vegie patch, minimising our utility bills and lead the family away from a consumer-driven life and towards a simple, sustainable future.
I enjoy being a 'homemaker'. I love walking in the front door in spring and smelling the bunch of roses I picked from our garden or looking at the quilts draped over the lounge that we use to keep warm on a winters night. The smell of freshly baked bread still warm from the oven and the feel of a handmade jumper are some of the things that I think make my house a home.
And speaking of somewhat clean ... I believe my housework is calling.
