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…

Even though the summer holidays are now here – and it’s therefore a time to take things slower, without the rush of the preschool run – I still find myself crazy busy. This is because I have to entertain two lively 4-year-old twins, as well as meet all my work commitments too! I find that the summer can be full-on and that my regimes and…

People often ask me how I manage my Mum-life and freelance business. I have been told that I come across on social media as though I have my act together! Like I have said on my blog before I am a very organised person and I thrive on routine, lists and working hard. It comes rather naturally to me (sorry don’t hate me!). I dislike…

Over the last few years (since becoming a Mum) I’ve not been one to obsess or spend lots of money on hair, make-up and beauty products. I always fancy trying new products out, but never really know where to start. I don’t always feel all that confident trying new brands either (over the years I have predominately stuck to the brands I like and know).…

Anyone who has lived with me will probably vouch that I’m not the most sprightly person first thing in the morning, to say the least. 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…

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…
