Domesticity. Just saying the word makes you want to find a comfy chair and contemplate your cup of tea, while having a nice long chat with your great-grandmother about pickling. There is a lot involved in domesticity. It's hard work - and endless work - but fulfilling on so many levels. A clean house; fresh laundry - folded and put away; healthy, delicious meals; spending time with your children (or dogs), tracking their days; the ups and downs of families. It's good stuff.
