Hello friends!
Welcome to my blog!

I've been wanting to start a blog for about 4 years now and over that time it has been a thought that has come and gone. I finally decided to do something about it! The story behind the title of my blog is that when my sisters and I were young my Mum (the best mum in the world. ever) used to make pikelets with us on rainy days. Now that I am a mother to two young sons, on rainy days I find myself doing the same thing. I love that it naturally became a thing to do with my children, just as my mother did. I even use her recipe and my boys love it just as much as I did. In a sense that is the way we learn, by the way behaviours are modelled to us by those who came before us.

Also on this blog, I'll be sharing with you different aspects of my life. I am a  mother, a beginner sewer and I simply love great second hand finds (of which there seem to be plenty lately). So enjoy, and bear with me as I adjust to this whole new world of blogging.

Have a great day,
