The twins have been ill with coughs and colds (for what seems like forever) – so I’ve been feeling more tired and run down myself. Plus I’ve not been exercising or taking care of myself all that well. So last week I vowed to get back on it again and make myself feel better. To do things that make me feel good. Here’s what I’ve…

A few people had noticed that my old profile picture on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc looked completely different to the photographs I had been posting lately of my new, short hair…! And they were right. I’m no longer a blonde, with long hair. I am now darker, with a long-bob. (I’m a bit older now too!!).

On Saturday night I did something daring and exciting. I left the twins, went to a friends house, had dinner & a few drinks with a group of blogging friends and stayed over! It was lovely. And so nice to do something just for me. And it was such a good laugh too! The girls night in was with some of my fantastic and amazing…

An entire decade of being together, as a couple. And in a few weeks, we will have been married for seven of those years. How quickly does time go?! And…how do we manage to stay so in love…

We lived in Chester. I have worked in Chester. Hubby currently works in Chester. So it’s fair to say that we know Chester quite well. It’s steeped in history (it was a Roman Fortress 2,000 years ago) and yet also has a nice mix of thoroughly modern buildings and facilities. What’s not to like about Chester?!

Next month sees the celebration of our 7 year wedding anniversary. Hubby and I got married in a country house hotel on a cold, crisp February day – with frost on the ground but the sun shining. It was lovely. This photograph makes me smile every time I see it. It shows just how happy I am on the day. And I love the way I…

I am excited to be linking up (for the first time!) with the fabulous ladies Aby and Em that blog over at You Baby Me Mummy and Snowing Indoors, for this photography linky – Point + Shoot. I wanted to share something different on this post, rather than a usual picture of my family or me (for a change!). Hubby took some really amazing pictures a…
