One of the toughest times of the week day in our house is around dinner time. The twins come home from primary school around 3.45pm, complain that they’re VERY hungry! and yet also want me to chat & play with them.

I know that everyone goes absolutely crazy over leopard print whenever someone posts a photo of their new coat, boots, loafers or bag on Instagram – but for me I have occasionally found it a hard print to buy & wear.

Like I’ve said before on here, I wear many hats. Well not real, actual hats, but I have got many different roles throughout the day. I’m Mum first thing in the morning (until the school gates at 9am) and then during the week days I’m also a blogger & freelance social media manager. For these jobs I mostly work from home but some weeks I…

After I had my boy & girl twins (back in 2012) I was somewhat prepared for some challenging things that were going to happen to me. These included my body taking a long time to recover after a twin pregnancy & major operation (c-section), as well as knowing that I’d probably feel incredibly tired and busy all the time.
