We have just put the tree up in our family home and it was fantastic watching our twins really enjoying the whole process – they were SO excited! Afterwards, Dave and I were talking about how much we both just love everything Christmas. Harry & Lottie (now 4) are incredibly excited about the festive period already…but us adults are too, there’s no doubt. It’s only the 4th…

I work from home 3 days a week, which subsequently means being in front of my iMac for most of it. This can drive me a little stir crazy sometimes, especially if Hubby is working away that week and I don’t get much adult conversation all day! I therefore like to pop into Worcester as much as I can these days to either do a little bit of…

Family… The twins are really enjoying preschool which is lovely as they have so many little friends. I have actually considered putting them in for more days (they currently do 3) as my work is SO busy lately; I keep swaying from one decision to another. The ‘Mum guilt’ however keeps eating away at me and so I don’t know what to do. I am not…

Despite being highly organised in most areas for the festive period, every year I am sent into a last-minute, desperate panic when it comes to buying presents for the men in my family. I find men’s gifts either super expensive, or just pretty ‘samey’ year-on-year. For some reason my Husband is just so difficult to buy for at Christmas time – because he has pretty much got everything that…

There is so much going on in our little world right now that I thought I’d condense it all into a post and do a little update as to what we’re up to with our life. September and early October is proving SO hectic for us and exciting too! Family… The most exciting thing right now in our life is that our babies (or not so…

At the end of July 2016 we spent a wonderful sunny day in Hertfordshire because my lovely little Sister got married! My Sister’s best friend & I were bridesmaids, and Lottie & my Niece were flower girls. The wedding day itself was relaxed, laid back and informal and yet it was extremely beautiful and stylish too. They made their guests feel very welcome in a rural village-hall setting filled with…

Since September is now in full swing (HOW is it mid-way through the month already?) I thought I would share a little bit of what’s in favour in my life at the moment. A few bits and bobs of the things that are making me smile and that are getting me through these busy family days. Things I can’t live without currently! Something I am really…

Since I became a freelance blogger & writer a few years ago, and since the twins started attending preschool three days a week, our daily life has changed a great deal. It now sees me working during the day, as well as using the gym, going shopping, doing housework or catching up with friends. I try to cram as much as I can into these three…

Pre-children, I used to be an active member of a gym. I went 3/4 times a week after work and really enjoyed classes such as circuit & step aerobics as well as using the pool. I felt fit and healthy. However, two kids later, and I’ve been struggling to manage an on/off relationship with running. It’s just been far too easy to find an excuse not…
