It’s a well-known fact that habits which are learned young are the ones which stay with us for the rest of our lives. With many of the earths natural resources under stress due to overuse, recycling is therefore one habit which we should all be striving to adopt. Getting children interested in (and used to) recycling any materials which can be re-used is an important…

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 they mirror their timetable; meaning…

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 fruit and helps towards 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 trip to Bicester to arrange…

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…
