People often ask me how I manage my Mum-life and freelance business. I have been told that I come across on social media as though I have my act together! Like I have said on my blog before I am a very organised person and I thrive on routine, lists and working hard. It comes rather naturally to me (sorry don’t hate me!). I dislike…

I’m a really busy Mum of (almost) 5-year-old twins. The majority of my week revolves around them. My typical weekly tasks involve the preschool run, running errands, shopping, meeting clients, the preschool pick-up, making dinner, bath & bed. As well as housework and ALL the other jobs that go along with being a Mum! Because I am getting them ready in the morning I don’t…

Seeing as December is nearing an end and 2017 is upon us (eeeek), it feels time to get organised and ready for the start of new tasks doesn’t it? I don’t know about you but at this time of year it prompts me to want to start ‘afresh’, achieve many goals for the new year ahead and get more organised. I am, however, a VERY…

Politically, what a bizarre year 2016 was. First Brexit (who’d have thought that?) and then Trump became President of the USA. I’m hoping that the world shapes up to be a good place for my twins to grow up in because I’m a real advocate for fairness and equality. Here’s hoping. That aside, on a personal level, 2016 has been pretty amazing and exhausting. Here’s why…

I have actually considered putting them in for more days (they currently do 3) as my work is SO busy lately; I keep swaying from one decision to another. The ‘Mum guilt’ however keeps eating away at me and so I don’t know what to do. I am not…

There is so much going on in our little world right now that I thought I’d condense it all into a post and do a little update as to what we’re up to with our life. September and early October is proving SO hectic for us and exciting too! Family… The most exciting thing right now in our life is that our babies (or not so…

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…

It’s true that my friends have had a huge impact on my happiness throughout my life. And this has been even more so since I became a Mum nearly 4 years ago. Since becoming a Mum of twins my friends have provided me with support and joy…and MOST definitely prevented loneliness and isolation for me. I have talked before about how my friends have been a huge support when I…

Whenever the clocks change, the lighter nights arrive, the sunshine makes an appearance and new life starts blooming everywhere I always feel SO excited and ready for spring. I can understand why some families emigrate – parenting is tough during the winter when the British weather is dull. Being stuck indoors on gloomy, wet weekends are tough and finding things to do inside is a real…
