I love our new-build family home in Worcester – I mean, I really do love it. It is so perfect for our modern family living and our twins just love the space we have.

The beginning of a new year compels me to want to make fresh, new changes in my personal and work life. I also want to make changes to our family home too and get those outstanding jobs completed. After all, our house is a sanctuary that the four of us love to spend a great deal of time in. Whilst they aren’t major changes that are needed,…

Like many people each year Dave and I take it in turn to visit/host our own families at Christmas. Last year my family came over to stay in our new-build home in Worcester where we had our very first Christmas! It was lovely because our twins and their two cousins excitedly opened all their presents together and then played with all…
