  • The Pros and Cons Of Center Parcs

    11th Nov 2019 by

    Last week we all went to Center Parcs for 5 days. My plan was to write a blog about our time in the same way I did for our Glasgow trip. Unfortunately Flyn was unwell with slap cheek during the holiday so we didn’t do as much as we would have liked. So I’ve decided… Read more

  • Mother’s Lurgy – When the plates start dropping!

    4th Nov 2019 by

    Being a mum, or an adult, means there’s normally a lot going on. For me, I’ve always liked the analogy that you are spinning lots of different plates. Now when I imagine this analogy in my head each plate is a different size. Some are big as they take up a lot of your attention… Read more

  • Midweek Musings – How do you choose your pals?

    30th Oct 2019 by

    When you’re a kid you choose your friends by what their favourite colour is. Or if they like the same flavour of haribo as you. My favourite dinosaur is a triceratops but I don’t ask potential new friends what there’s is! Well at least not the first time I meet them! However once we mature… Read more

  • Midweek Musings: When The Kids Are Away!

    16th Oct 2019 by

    Recently I read an article on whether people enjoy time without their children or not. It got me thinking if people feel the same way that me and my husband do. Child free time for us is bloody exhilarating! I didn’t crave child free time so much when it was just one child I was… Read more

    Mess. I live my life surrounded by mess. No matter how often I declutter or tidy the house, it is a midden at least 95% of the time. I understand that with three young children my house will never be Instagram perfect all of the time, but I do wonder how others seem to keep… Read more

  • The First Year with Twins (Part 1)

    7th Oct 2019 by

    Just get through the first year, then it gets easier. These were the words we heard in twin antenatal classes. These were the words we were told once the twins were born. These were the words I repeated over and over again when I didn’t think I could cope any longer. And if you are… Read more
