So how is everyone getting on with their Christmas shopping? Are you feeling rather smug at having finished wrapping all of your presents, or are you in full-on panic mode about how much you have to do? My current state is that I’m actually pretty organised – although there are still some last gifts I need to get (there always is though, isn’t there?). Plus…

I feel as though it’s the right time that I can officially do this post. Christmas talk is now well under way, people are getting rather excited about the big day approaching and so I think it’s more than Okay to discuss Christmas wish-lists and what we’d all like to get under the tree from Santa this year, right?

As a busy Mum of two little ones I don’t get into London much these days, despite watching other people on my Instagram Stories pop in and out all the time to many different lovely events.

I literally cannot believe that it’s now officially September and that the twins have started primary school! We’ve had almost 6 whole weeks of being at home together during the summer and enjoying time to take things a little slower; with a long break from the normal morning preschool routine. It’s been really nice.
