When I started this blog 3.5 years ago blogging wasn’t really a ‘big thing’. People certainly weren’t aiming for it as a career choice, nor were many making much money out of it. Mine wasn’t very polished at all and was simply the trials & tribulations of raising 1-and-a-half-year-old boy & girl twins. Totally focused on parenting matters because that…

When I was pregnant with my (rather large) twin, baby-bump I obviously dreamed of the kind of Mum that I’d like to be. I hoped that I would be heaps of fun, caring and kind. Radiate love. Our babies had taken quite a few years (and tears) to conceive and so I definitely knew that they were going to be the centre…

Dave and I fell for each other over 10 years ago. It was one of those relationships where you literally can’t wait to see them or speak to them – and get excited when you receive a text! I was in my late 20’s at the time – so we weren’t young kids – but it was still exciting all the same.…

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…

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…

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…

So, here we are. Harry has chicken pox (boo!) and is covered in spots. Bless him. He is doing OK though. He is a little itchy so I have been giving him Piriton to ease it as he won’t let me put Calamine Lotion on. He’s playing and seems OK so we are just waiting for them to disappear now.…

I have written before on here about Lottie’s separation anxiety towards me. This has been a really challenging part of parenting as a Mum…having a little girl who doesn’t like being with anyone else, or being away from your side…especially when she is a twin. It is something that I have spoken to other parents, friends, health visitors, sought advice online over –…

When I used to dream about myself & Motherhood I actually thought that I was going to nail it. In my head (during the week) I’d be off swimming one day, baby yoga the next, and then meeting up with my new Mummy friends to do Starbucks and shopping with my new baby. Days out galore. I thought I’d really…
