Keep Calm You're Pregnant!

I am thrilled to have written this post for the brilliant Twin Mummy blog, and hope it helps mummies-to-be! Guest post by Ickle Pickle. Click here to read her blog.

Mummy teaches relaxation and meditation, so when she was pregnant with me it was natural for her to practise what she preaches!

Top tips for parenting twins

Raising a baby is one of the toughest experiences in the world. 

Our twins spent the first 27 days of their lives in hospital. 

By the time my husband and I brought them home they were almost a month old. 

For that very first month we had a lot of support.

Bedtime routines at two years old

It’s been a long day.

6.30pm arrives.

The girls are in their pyjamas, as am I!

We make our way into the kitchen and grab a bottle of milk from the counter top.

M is in daddy’s arms, whilst R is cradled in mine.

We return to our front room.

The blinds have been closed and the curtains drawn.

We’ve said goodnight to the outside world and turned the lights off.

The TV is on mute and I can’t wait for the girls to sleep so I can just sit and do nothing!

At just over two years old, I thought I would share with you our twins bedtime routine.

A different kind of holiday

I’ve been talking a lot about travel on the blog lately.

It probably has something to do with the fact that we’ve just come back from Devon, plus my step-daughter is in Spain right now, which means I’m avoiding her Instagram feed for a while!

All those pictures of beaches and sunshine is making me want to spend all my savings on another holiday!

We’ve been on two holidays since our twins were born.

The first was to Menorca with my three step-children, mother-in-law, husband and our twins. It was a good holiday overall, but too many people and seven days felt like a month!

My 1st Years Personalised Teddy Bear Review

I love gifts that have something unique about them.

Something that shows a bit of thought has gone into it.

This is one of the reasons why I’m making our girls a quilt each made out of their old baby clothes.

When I was asked to review a product from My 1st Years, I chose two Personalised Teddy Bears.

Joules Field Welly Review

I recently discovered Joules after finding a gift from them in my Britmums Live goody bag. A beautiful, multi-coloured fabric key ring.

Joules sell a range of clothes for men, women and children. You’ll find anything from dresses to hats, scarves and wellies for sale on their website. They also sell a range of home and outdoor items such as pet bedding, stationary and beach towels.

Started by Tom Joule over 30 years ago, he first started selling his products at country equestrian and outdoor events. He realised one day that clothing didn’t reflect people’s personalities and so Joules was born.

Joules are all about colour and detail. They’re passionate about prints and they get their inspiration from the eccentricities of the countryside.

When I was asked to choose an item from their website to review, I chose these fabulous Navy Field Wellies.

This linky is for bloggers who have been blogging for a year or less. It's your chance to link up your favourite post of the week. It's a great way to find new blogs to read and to raise your blogs profile.

Binky is the American term for a dummy which babies obviously use. I thought the name Binky Linky would suit seeing as this linky is aimed at newbie bloggers!

I'm your host!

Norovirus: What you need to know

It’s something that most people have heard of, but how much do you actually know about Norovirus?

A few months ago, myself and one of our twins ended up in hospital as a result of Norovirus (read more here). It’s an awful virus and one that took me just over a week to fully recover from.

Why I could never be a stay at home mum

Some people may think badly of me after reading the title to this post, but I assure you that I love my children more than anything in the world and would do anything for them. 

I just don't think I'm cut out to be a stay at home mum! 

I absolutely admire anybody, Mum or Dad, who stays at home with their children 24/7. 

Being a parent is the toughest job in the world. 

Before my children were born I thought that I would want to spend all my time with my children and that I would never want to be apart from them. I dreaded the thought of going back to work.

Help us help Bliss and CRUK

Last year my husband and I started our very own charity campaign.

Our aim is to raise £1,000 for Cancer Research UK and £1,000 for Bliss, the baby charity.

We’re so pleased that so far we have raised a total of £701.00.

As well as asking friends, family and complete strangers to donate to these two great charities, we also organised a charity raffle and a children’s Christmas Party.

Both were a huge success and helped to raise lots of money.

So now we are back!

We will be skydiving for these two amazing charities – hopefully this year!

We don’t have very far to go in hitting our target, but we need your help to achieve this!

Can you donate just £1.00 to either of our fundraising pages?


We also have some very exciting competitions and raffles which you can be involved in to help us meet our target.

Thank you again to everyone who has helped us raise as much as we have already!
