Hi, I’m Corrie and live with my gorgeous husband and 6 beautiful children on a couple of acres. I always wanted a big family and I couldn’t be happier. And yes……………just in case you were wondering. I’m Catholic. I consider being a mum my vocation and am working so hard on raising my children to love their faith as well. I have 3 girls and 3 boys all under the age of 10. There is a set of twins in there and one very sweet little girl with special needs who is missing part of a chromosome. She brings our family so much joy. Sometimes I write about children with special needs because it is a subject very close to my heart.
When I’m not cooking, cleaning, changing nappies or playing with my little ones then I’m folding laundry. No really. I am, it never ends. I have a 9.5kgs washing machine and just need a commercial size dryer in my laundry room and I’m set. But I do try to find time to fit in my crafts – knitting, crochet, sewing, quilting and baking. I love baking. I also love white kitchens and have renovated 2 beautiful kitchens over the years.
I’m an accountant by trade and worked in banking here in Sydney as well as London. I married an accountant but after almost 10 years in the city I knew that I didn’t want the long hours and was desperate to start our family. So I left work and fell pregnant the next month. Life is pretty crazy here but you know, I wouldn’t have it any other way. My place is definitely at home and I’m loving it.
I started blogging when I was overdue with my first baby, way back in 2006. I wanted a way to share my knitting projects and a bit of family life since I was going to be at home with a new baby. I didn’t have any mummy friends around me and I figured I could meet a few online. I’ve learnt a lot over the years and love to share our family life and all of my craft and baking projects with you all.
