It’s not an exaggeration to say that our 4-year-old twins are incredibly excited about Christmas this year. Each morning they literally run into our bedroom asking to open their advent calendars and begin counting down the days until Santa visits our home. I didn’t think that they could sustain this level of euphoria for the whole of December…but it has proven to be…

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…

There is so much going on in our little world right now that I thought I’d condense it all into a post and do a little update as to what we’re up to with our life. September and early October is proving SO hectic for us and exciting too! Family… The most exciting thing right now in our life is that…

Since I became a freelance blogger & writer a few years ago, and since the twins started attending preschool three days a week, our daily life has changed a great deal. It now sees me working during the day, as well as using the gym, going shopping, doing housework or catching up with friends. I try to cram as much as…

The six-week summer holidays have been fantastic this time around. Last summer was much tougher for me; the twins were still quite little (they were about to turn three), plus we…

This year saw us go away on our first family holiday abroad as a family of four, which was one of the highlights of our year. Seeing the twins faces as we took off to fly abroad was magical. So much so, that we have also just recently booked another one too! We cannot wait to go to Greece in early October…

Both Hubby and I were never really festival goers when we were younger. I think we both liked the idea of the amazing music and the chilled out vibes – but neither of us fancied the camping part much at all! More recently, since we have had the twins, the thought of a festival has not been on the radar at…

Saturday 30th July 2016 was a wonderful sunny day down in Hertfordshire. It was a particularly special day in the calendar because my lovely little Sister got married! They created a magical wedding day that was relaxed, laid back and informal and yet extremely beautiful and stylish too. They made their guests feel very welcome in a rural village-hall setting filled…
