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…

Hubby and I decided that instead of getting each other lots of presents for Christmas, that we would rather have a night away in a hotel together, in early 2015. We arranged for my parents to have the twins for the night; staying at our house. Harry & Lottie love their grandparents (and vice versa!) and so I knew that they would all have a…

I’m really pleased with Lottie’s finished bedroom. Her woodland themed bedroom is looking so cute and pretty. A while ago, I wrote a post – wondering whether or not to separate the twins into their own bedrooms. As they were approaching two-years-old I thought it might be the right time. Plus Lottie was waking Harry at nap times. However, I was worried that they may miss each…

If you read my posts you will know that I like to take a photograph (or two!). Especially of my precious and gorgeous twins. I also like having photographs and pictures all over the walls of my home, which makes me smile. I love capturing memories and then having these printed and framed. If you remember, I put some pictures up on the stairs walls…

“Mummy, juice peese” “Mummy, done a poo” “Mummy, toe hurts” “Mummy, Mummy, Mummy, Mummy, Thomas is broke” “Mummy, snack peese” “Me draw peese Mummy?” “Mummy, Elsa dress on” “Mummy, Elsa dress off” Are a few examples of MOST of my day. Now I don’t know about you, but just reading that makes me panic. Sends me into a small frenzy. Gets my heart racing. Stresses…

Those first few months after the twins were born were wonderful. Our little miracles were here, both beautiful and both adorable. Except that they didn’t sleep much. So, of course, neither did we. Hubby and I thought we were prepared for the sleep deprivation. EVERYONE tells you that it’s going to be tough. So you know it will be. However…when you are getting up every few hours…

The 2nd of my New Year’s Resolutions was a vow to get fit again. To get back into running. You might remember me getting all excited and smug about starting to run again during the summer. I hadn’t been for a run in over 2.5 years (after having the twins) and I was totally ready to do something. I had a Mum-tum and wobbly bits, but most of…

As a blogger I thought I knew a fair thing or two about social media. I’m using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest on a daily basis. However, as I have recently discovered, these are only a very small number of the social media networks that exist. And (to be honest), I haven’t even heard of most of them. So as a parent, this lack of…

As you may well know Harry and Lottie started preschool this week. A day that we have been looking forward to and preparing for. I was hoping that on the day there would be no tears. Day one went really well (I stayed for it) and they loved it. Lots of drawing, playing and singing! The staff and the other children were very nice and…
