Something has happened to me since I became a parent. It’s to do with my eating habits. Since I’ve had the twins something has happened to me – food-wise. Because I no longer eat three meals a day, at regular times of the day. Like I did before. Pre kids – Hubby and I loved our food. We liked eating…

“Mummy, juice peese” “Mummy, done a poo” “Mummy, toe hurts” “Mummy, Mummy, Mummy, Mummy, Thomas is broke” “Mummy, snack peese” “Me draw peese Mummy?” “Mummy, Elsa dress on” “Mummy, Elsa dress off” Are a few examples of MOST of my day. Now I don’t know about you, but just reading that makes me panic. Sends me into a small frenzy.…

To, the Creators of Peppa Pig, RE: Muddy puddles Hello. And thank you for reading (which I hope that you are, and that it’s not just your ‘people’ opening this letter). You see, I do realise that you are probably on a beach somewhere, in the Bahamas’, drinking cocktails – stinking rich. I know this, because, not only have you…

Hubby told me over our family Saturday morning breakfast that he was playing golf tomorrow. He informed me that he’d be going out early and would be gone all morning. That he needed some “down-time” because he “hadn’t played golf in ages”. My initial reaction to this news was to throw my spoon at him, swear a bit, and then…

Something very odd is going on with my twins at the moment. Something, that for once, Google can’t help me with. Take today. They woke up normally, nothing different happened overnight, everything was standard. And yet something had changed within those 12 hours.

Hubby puts Peppa Pig on for her on TV, whilst we try and snooze a little until Harry wakes up. It finishes, so she turns…

That picture above is of Hubby. Lottie and I (mostly me) made it from play-doh. You can see the similarity, right? (OK, maybe not. It’s totally pants isn’t it?). My Sister, who has two small children, sends me over a photo of a bus that they made out of a cardboard box. It’s amazing. And then a fish tank, with fish attached. And then Tidmouth sheds – from…

We are at a friends 2nd birthday party. It’s time to go home. The twins are bouncing on the trampoline, red-faced and wild from all of the excitement they’ve had. My heart starts beating a little faster; I feel a tad anxious at what’s coming. “Come on darlings” I start with. Very calm; a gentle voice. “It’s time to go now”. “No” replies Harry, defiant. Lottie just ignores me. “Come on…
