For some reason quite a few people seem to like my Instagram account It has nicely crept up to 7.5k followers in the last 2 years, which I am continually amazed and astounded by! I must admit though – as this blog post title suggests – that I do love and totally adore this photo-sharing app. Out of all the social media channels it is still BY FAR my favourite!

I’ve just had a phone-call from a potential client about taking on some more freelance blogging work. My initial reaction: “Yippeee things are going SO well”. My next reaction: “How am I going to fit this in to the already packed hours that I work?”. Gulp. I started this blog 2 years ago as a release from the ‘strains’ of early Motherhood. As well as to…

I love writing my blog…*you may have guessed*. Surprisingly though, I have not become bored or fed up of it nearly 2 years on (April will mark its second birthday!). In fact, I cannot imagine my life without it now. Sure, it has taken many twists and turns; changing completely since my initial style, but I think that is only due to a reflection of my…

So this week saw the twins and I appear in actual print. Because I was featured in Very magazine, in their ‘bloggers corner’ section of the magazine! Which comes with the extremely popular OK magazine! As soon as I knew that it was in print and on the shelves I ran out to the shops first thing in the morning and grabbed quite a few copies (I…
