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 up on my priority list for…

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. I get a weekly shop…

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 I jumped into the car…

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 where we have lived, both…

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 the Prosecco! On Tuesday, after…

We only have 5 more sleeps until our family holiday to Levante Beach, Rhodes with Mark Warner! Whilst I am crazy excited and simply cannot wait I am also currently going through that feeling of ‘preparation panic’ – trying to organise everything to make sure that we get there on time and safely, as well as making sure that house and work matters are sorted out before…

I feel as though I am always shopping every few days for more supplies of fresh fruit and vegetables. We seem to run out of it all so quickly – which is great – but making sure that they eat a variety of fruits and vegetables each week can be a challenge. We all know that eating fruit and vegetables is important, for young ones and…

I have just returned home from a lovely weekend away with Lottie at my Sister’s house, near Cambridge. My little Sister gets married to her long-term partner at the end of July and so we were sorting Lottie’s bridesmaid dress (and making sure it fit her), as well as chatting about everything ready for the wedding! My Sister is going for a ‘vintage meets summer-fete’ theme…

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 the amazing things about having…
