It is funny how you can so easily fall in and out of love isn’t it? One day you’re completely and utterly besotted then the next you could happily shut up shop and walk away. I have been feeling this quite a lot lately about social media. I go through phases where it is the absolute bees knees then others when I could happily delete everything and sail off into the sunset. The last twelve months have seen me battle even more frequently. My Twitter account is around 8 years old and has amassed numerous friends from way way before…

Despite being 5’7, I have ridiculously tiny size 4 feet. They really are dinky but this definitely has its plus points as I can buy cheap kids shoes and trainers. Yesterday, we went to get the kids feet measured. It seems that small feet seems to be running in the family. I remember Charlie’s feet growing incredibly slowly when he had small and yet again, my girls haven’t gone up. At almost 4, they are still a size 8. However they really need some new shoes for nursery. We were given loads of shoes so have been working our way…

What a difference blue skies can make to your week. I have felt in a completely difference mind frame this week on the days where the sun shone and the skies were blue. I know it’s still chilly and we are nowhere near consistently nice weather, but the warm Spring days really have been such a game changer for us. The kids have gone and played in the garden after school meaning that the house is that little bit tidier and the TV and tablets go by the way side as they bounce happily on the trampoline. I have been…

I appreciate that my title may be a tad misleading as this week has been anything BUT ordinary, but this week we really capitalised on being spontaneous. I like to think that while I love planning, a part of me really enjoys being spontaneous. When our twin daughters were 8 weeks old, one sunday afternoon whilst  having a pub lunch we decided to book a holiday. For the next day. So it is well documented that we do like to throw caution to the wind at times. I have to admit this is more my husband than I, as I am the…

I’ve mentioned before about how my husband predominately works away during the week. We go to bed Sunday evening and he usually leaves around 4am meaning we don’t see him until around 5-6pm on a Friday. This is how it’s been pretty much our entire relationship and it’s one we are all used to. Last week, we all headed off to Butlin’s for our second ambassador trip meaning that Daddy was home for 9 whole days! It’s interesting to see that the kids quickly gravitate towards him when he’s at home for “long” chunks of time. For me, it’s lovely…

I have talked at length previously about wanting to try to make the most of my time with the girls before they start school in September, so just simple things such as a shopping trip can feel like a parenting win. My girls will be 4 in June and as a whole life has gotten easier. A simple trip to the shops no longer requires oodles of nappies, wipes, nappy bags, spare clothes, snacks, drinks… the list goes on! We literally can decide on a whim what we want to do, however having two little people with their own ideas…

It’s February. In England. A day on the farm isn’t usually what I’d be typing, but when it’s just a fiver for all three of us to go then how could I not?! On Wednesday, I met my friend Sam & her little girl and we visited a local farm. I had somehow managed to get lost and rocked up half an hour late and despite it being freezing, drizzly, muddy and really grey the three girls absolutely loved it. We saw owls, sheep, reindeer, chickens, geese, ponies, donkeys, a pretty peacock, pigs and some incredibly cute baby goats, which were incredibly cheeky.…
