This week I have mostly been shattered. Seriously though, I have been getting over our Center Parcs trip all week. The twins were the same too. They were both very cranky for a few days (due to a lack of sleep and being out of their routine) and so we’ve all been recovering this week! Monday we returned from Center Parcs and I spent the…

One of the most important factors in my twin’s lives at the moment is that of friendship. Friends, and making new friends. They have each other, granted, and will always have a built-in, ready-made, best mate (for life). They are truly lucky. However, they start pre-school in January and one of my worries is whether or not they mix well, and make new friends. “Oh,…

You may have noticed (if you are on Twitter), that every Friday I do a ‘Friday-blog-shout-out’. This is a tweet, which contains a blog that I have either just discovered, or been reading for some time, to share with my followers. I started it because there are so many fantastic and diverse blogs out there – and I wanted to share some love for the truly…

When it comes to winter hats – I have a few. Some really suit me, some don’t! My favourite?…Like the one above, I love a good bobble hat! However, there are so many styles and choices, and some hats are better for different occasions. Below are my hats this winter, and what I am enjoying wearing. Plus – a good hat covers a bad hair day!!…BONUS!

Where we live, it has snowed quite a lot during the winter. We’re in a rural (ish) spot in North Wales, and we have had some fantastic snow over the last 4 years that we have lived here. In particular, late 2012/early 2013, when it was so deep and all the power went off for days and we had to dig ourselves out and go…

I have a small but steep flight of stairs in our cottage, leading to our upstairs. It is narrow and feels dark. It needed some TLC to bring it to life! As I am obsessed with photographs I thought it was a quick, easy and cheap way of updating the walls. I visited a friends house recently who had a whole wall full of photographs and…

As you know from my previous post, we went to Center Parcs in the Lake District this weekend. To the ‘winter wonderland’, with our twins Harry & Lottie, and our good friends and their little boy. And as I type this tonight I am totally shattered from it! The trip didn’t start all that well though. I trimmed Harry’s hair on the Thursday night before,…

We’ve had this little trip booked for a while. A good friend suggested that we all go to ‘Winter Wonderland’ at Center Parcs (Lake District) for a long weekend, during December. And we agreed, as we knew it would be a fantastic idea. Having not had a holiday abroad this year – we have saved up for it all year! We went to C Parcs…

Lots of the twins friends like a comfort item. Favourite blanket, toy, teddy or rabbit. It makes them feel content; they like to carry it around, and go to bed with it. Lottie started off, at around 12 months old, becoming attached to a cuddly monkey. She saw him in a shop one day, pointed to him excitedly and REALLY wanted him. He’s been her best buddy…
