I’ve noticed a lot of brilliant reads online lately, as well as some fab YouTube videos and TV programmes. I’ll be honest – I don’t really watch a lot of TV every night anymore; Dave and I tend to watch on demand TV (or a Netflix series that we are into) but not as much TV as previously. I do, however, love reading a good…

We have been living in Worcester for exactly two years now; we moved here from North Wales due to Dave relocating jobs and although it was a tough time to move our very young family – and leave both sets of our parents behind – we actually haven’t looked back. It has been a superb move for the four of us, and one that has…

I cannot believe how quickly the summer is going already. We are only 4 weeks away from the September school term starting, where Harry & Lottie will begin in reception class. It feels as though their last summer holidays as pre-schoolers is literally flashing before my eyes! Last week Dave was off work for a few days and so together with some lovely friends we…

These days the twins run into our bedroom every single day, as soon as they wake up, (usually around 6.45am) and instantly want to chat, play and get up for breakfast. I really struggle to open my eyes! Once I make…

Seeing as December is nearing an end and 2017 is upon us (eeeek), it feels time to get organised and ready for the start of new tasks doesn’t it? I don’t know about you but at this time of year it prompts me to want to start ‘afresh’, achieve many goals for the new year ahead and get more organised. I am, however, a VERY…

Politically, what a bizarre year 2016 was. First Brexit (who’d have thought that?) and then Trump became President of the USA. I’m hoping that the world shapes up to be a good place for my twins to grow up in because I’m a real advocate for fairness and equality. Here’s hoping. That aside, on a personal level, 2016 has been pretty amazing and exhausting. Here’s why…
