Now that we’re parents of preschoolers, we are looking at the upcoming Easter break as a chance to get away…and have some time together as a family. We’ve all been so busy lately, Hubby especially, and we are in need of some quality time away together. We love UK breaks – I’m currently searching for a cottage to visit over Easter. To…

When we were in London a few weekends ago (visiting my Sister and her family) Hubby was busy! He dug out a corner patch of the garden and cleared it all back, with the intention of making it into an area that Harry & Lottie could plant. And grow things. And make it their own ‘little garden’. The sun decided…

The twins have been ill with coughs and colds (for what seems like forever) – so I’ve been feeling more tired and run down myself. Plus I’ve not been exercising or taking care of myself all that well. So last week I vowed to get back on it again and make myself feel better. To do things that make me…

Lottie has been going through a really awful phase lately. Waking at 5.20am/5.30am and calling for me and not going back to sleep. It’s been affecting her behaviour during the day; she is very grumpy and naughty. And yet despite her early wake-up, she’ll still only have a 45 minute nap (or so) – and so isn’t even catching up…

Ok, so the school run is not a catwalk. It isn’t a place for a fashion show. I have barely enough time in the morning to get the twins fed, their teeth brushed, dressed and ready before I even think about what I’m wearing. It doesn’t leave me very long to throw something together! Sometimes after dropping them off at preschool I…

I’ve been blogging for nearly a whole year now (I know, I can’t believe it either!). And yet in all that time I’ve only recently started taking part in linky’s. For those of you who think I’ve been so far behind the times…I have been. But – like many things in blogging – it is so easy to… a) miss…

Don’t you just love shops that you can lose yourself in? Browsing away in them for hours on end?…(without the children, obviously!). I love buying new pieces for my home, and adore shops with quirky, different, and unique items that are really interesting. HomeSense is such a shop. Shelves packed with lovely products, such as furniture, cushions, pictures, frames, kitchenware,…

As I said recently the twins started preschool in January. They started the first week back after Christmas, doing 2 mornings a week. It hasn’t all been plain sailing. Lottie, especially, hasn’t found the transition easy. However, a few months in now and they seem to be far more settled and enjoying it far more. In all honesty though, it has transformed…

The sun is finally starting to appear – at last! And when it is lovely and warm outside, I can’t sit inside. We live in a semi-rural part of North Wales. In a little village. We’re surrounded by fields and lanes and the most amazing countryside and surroundings to explore and discover together. At times, living here can feel isolated though.…
