I don’t usually use the word ‘epic’. After all, I’m 37 and a Mum of two; epic therefore doesn’t normally feature in my vocabulary. But – on this occasion – it feels like the ONLY word to best describe the last 12 months. The last year has seen a lot of change in our lives, as a family of four. We’ve moved house…

I haven’t bought anything new for our family home for a little while now. I don’t really know why. Perhaps I am at the stage where we have pretty much everything we need? Or maybe I am just too darn busy to think about purchasing lovely home decor pieces at the moment? Or probably both. Anyway, that aside, I actually HAVE picked up a…

As I sit here and type out this blog post, my Sister is currently at home frantically preparing for her wedding in just 4 days time. Bless her. It’s that week before, mad-build-up to your big day that makes you feel incredibly giddy with excitement and yet stressed out to the max because you are so worried that you don’t forget anything. The…

Our summer holidays have officially begun. And, (to be honest), I don’t really know where the last school term went…it seemed to whizz by. But it’s been and gone now and the school holidays have arrived. 6 weeks of not having to be anywhere; no preschool run or routine! The twins attend the preschool of a local primary school and so…

One of our favourite things to do together – the twins and I – is to make home-made smoothies in our kitchen! The kids love them! I try to make one each day, or every other day, for the children…either after their lunch, or with their breakfast. It is such a great way of getting them interested in and enjoying their…

Oh my goodness, the last 4+ months have been nothing short of FULL ON. It all started around March-time with my Cousins hen party in Chester, followed swiftly by her wedding in Malta. Then I have had a few blogging conferences, a Christening in Leeds, a week away on a family holiday in Greece, my Sister’s hen party in Birmingham, a…

I am at a point within our home where the twins now have a HUGE collection of children’s books. They get a new book for every birthday & Christmas, plus they have library books, books from school and ones from car boots sales/charity shops. We therefore have accumulated many books throughout the last four years. Book storage is subsequently something that is high…

Before the twins came along Hubby and I would spend a long time planning our weekly meals, preparing food, sourcing quality ingredients and cooking together. A glass of wine in the kitchen and chatting together about our busy day. Nowadays, however, cooking a meal has become somewhat of a chore, since having our children. Because life is, quite frankly, manic.…
