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 I can into these three…

Usually, at the weekends, we are dashing here, there and everywhere. Hubby plays cricket on a Saturday, the twins have clubs or a party, we like to go swimming on a Sunday, and more often than not somebody might also be visiting us! We therefore usually feel pretty worn out by Sunday evening! But this weekend we had a nice, relaxing one and spent a lot of time…

Monday morning will see our family return back to our pre-summer routine. It will mean that the twins are once again attending at preschool three days a week and I’ll be subsequently working again. 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 had only just moved to…

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 and enjoy some more R&R.…

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 all either! So when Bassetts…

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 with floral bunting hanging from…

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 to Worcester (over 100 miles…

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 few new pieces recently (which…

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 wedding is going to be…
