I’ve dusted off the laptop. I’ve dug it out from behind the sofa and stared at a blank page for a while. You see, I forgot how to do it. When everything happened it was all I wanted to do; pour my heart out onto the screen. My head was so full of feelings and they needed to escape so I wrote. What I have realised over the last couple of months that for the first 6 months after the twins were born I was in shock, a huge amount of shock. I wanted to shout it from the roof… View Post

Me time. Have you heard of it? Yes me too. Apparently, you ignore the big to do list on the notepad and light candles, eat chocolate, have a bath, read a glossy magazine. Sound good? Sounds bloomin’ amazing! But seriously, who has time for it? Me. I have time for it. I’m a bit embarrassed to say I do have the time for it to be honest but recently I have started putting it on to the to do list.

With a husband that works away all week every week routines are the way I get through life especially now I have two children.

You often hear people moan that all parents do when they get together is talk about their kids. I agree that sometimes there needs to be a no kid talk rule. We all need time off and we all need to talk about things that don’t include references to poo, the naughty corner and the battle to get our kid to eat something green. However, there is also a lot to be said for the chats about our kids. I was chatting to a mummy friend one day last week. Little Lady had driven me mad all of the day… View Post

Wow 6 months! 6 months ago I was in shock. One of my girls had grown her wings and one was in an incubator fighting for her life. Not forgetting my little man waking up to find Mummy & Daddy had gone in the night and Granny and Grandad were there instead. It’s amazing how your life can change in an instant. How your whole outlook can change; my whole world was rocked and to be honest it’s not stopped since. So 6 months on we have a new normal. So much has changed. I am learning how to walk… View Post
