Welcome to the Twiglet Homestead blog. This is where I share what I’m up to; my nutty thoughts and photos about chickens, plants, crafts, growing and making food and trying to live a more natural life. Two years ago The Husband and I moved to our very own dear house in the Waikato countryside in New Zealand, which I decided to call Twiglet Homestead. We also lived in the lovely, but shaken, Christchurch for a while, which will always hold a special place in my heart. However, home is where the heart is, and for me, that is where the family is.

Home is my happy place. And my favourite place of all is in the garden. I like to grow all sorts of things, with a particular fondness for edibles, native grasses and burgundy coloured flowers and foliage. There is a whole heap of work to be done in the garden, which keeps me busy, along with my millions of other ‘projects’. I’m a stay-at-home mum for our bright spark of joy, The Little Fulla, who is 1 1/2 years old. I’m on a mission to become more self-sufficient, sustainable, natural and any other number of things that make my life more simple, healthy, cheap and responsible. Join me as I journey through skills like knitting, DIY around the home, discovering food that I can make instead of buy and various other experiments. I hope you enjoy getting a glimpse into my world.
