I had planned to take the two weeks of the Easter holidays off blogging and social media management when the twins were off school, posting to instagram if and when I felt like it. However, (typically) new work ALWAYS comes in when you make these kind of solid plans. And when you’re freelance (and don’t know whether anything juicy will come in again for a…

I know, I know, I’m going on holiday during Easter time — are you fed up of me going on about it yet?! But seriously. Only 3 weeks to go! Before we jet off to sunnier climes, it’s Easter time — and that means plenty of chocolate, the Easter bunny visiting us, time off school & work, roast dinners, fizz and catching up with family.…

This Easter bank holiday weekend we haven’t actually got lots of busy plans, (which suits us fine). We have just got back from a few days up North visiting my Mum and my Sister and so it is really nice to land home and catch up. Our plans for the holidays include relaxing together, hoping the weather stays dry (please, please) and maybe catching up with…

So, here we are. Harry has chicken pox (boo!) and is covered in spots. Bless him. He is doing OK though. He is a little itchy so I have been giving him Piriton to ease it as he won’t let me put Calamine Lotion on. He’s playing and seems OK so we are just waiting for them to disappear now. And so as a result…

Here in the UK we try to grab any opportunity to get outside whenever the weather allows us! Our garden is still a work in progress since we moved into our…

We are therefore throwing ourselves (as a family) into the local community as best as we can…trying our hardest to make friends with the neighbours and with the children and Mums at school. Everyone has been SO friendly so far, and we are lucky…

One of the best aspects of having children is the fun and joy it brings you every day as a grown-up. It brings me such pleasure to see how much enjoyment they get out of anything I do with them. I know lots of people find the holidays too commercialised, but to be honest I love getting involved in anything seasonal with the children for it gives me great ideas,…

This Easter we haven’t actually got lots of family coming over to see us. It’ll just be me, my lovely Hubby, Harry – my dinosaur obsessed little dude, and Lottie – the chatterbox who loves playing ‘Mummy & babies’ at the moment. We have no real plans for the Easter holidays, other than relaxing, hoping the weather stays dry and maybe catching up with some…

We had a little mini Easter egg hunt, in the garden, for the twins. They LOVED it. I hid some mini-Kinder-eggs and some bunny chocolates; they had to count and then come and find them. They thought it was brilliant! Last Easter they were a bit too little to be involved in activities like this, however this year (at 2.5 years old) Harry & Lottie adore anything…
