This years BritMums Live 2016 weekend clashed with my two Nephew’s Christening in Leeds. So, like the mad-woman that I am, I thought that I would attempt to do both of them in the one weekend. I dashed away from the blogging event in London late on Saturday afternoon to meet Hubby and the twins half-way as they were en-route to Yorkshire on Saturday evening. After…

Parks have played such a huge part of our family life over the last 4 years. I have written many a blog post about our trips to the local park…and taken lots of snaps of the children there too! The twins and I love going to a park and playing – especially to our local one. We have actually been lucky…

If you’ve been following me on Facebook or Twitter during the last few days then I am terribly sorry about all the ‘drama’. My emotions have been running high and I’m feeling pretty exhausted from it all! First we were going to Rhodes, then we weren’t, now we are again. Phew. Life with kids is never simple. Or easy. Pass me…

We all know that eating fruit and vegetables is…

My Sister is going for…

When the twins were a few months old, somebody (I can’t remember who) told me that they would get ‘easier’ at around four years old. I didn’t quite know how to react to this news, and thought (at the time) that four years old felt SO far away. “It can’t be all that bad surely?” I naively thought. Of course there have been all…

I just can’t let what was the MOST glorious weekend of weather go by without singing its praises and sharing a bit of love for the recent UK weather. Last week we were dressed in boots and coats (there was actually some snow in places) and all feeling a bit glum with the cold…and then this weekend we were basking in…

Becoming a Stay-at-home-Mum was really important to me personally and I will forever feel fortunate to have been able to do it for the last 4 years. Luckily, financially, my Husband and I were in a position to be able to select this option – and it has worked really well for both of us; achieving the right work/life balance for us…
