The trouble with twins 

Twins cuddling

Having twins is pretty cool. As a mum it’s actually quite reassuring. I mean knowing that they have an instant best friend for life is something quite unique. When they first started nursery they had one another. They didn’t not know anyone as they had each other. They’ve recently started school and they’re in the same class which offers me great piece of mind. I have a pretty good understanding of the twin bond myself. You see I’m also a twin. My sister and I are pretty close. Even though we don’t live close to one another, we talk on… [Read More]

Giant Piano Mat Review

Giant Piano Mat

Like most children, my four year old twins love music. Ever since they were babies, I’ve sung songs to them. I’ve played various musical instruments to them such as shakers, tambourines and drums. They even have a mini piano which was a bargain buy that I’m very proud of! We have a dedicated drawer in our living room that’s full of musical instruments. Of course, they’ve kind of grown out of some of the instruments, but I keep them just in case! My husband loves his music too so he’s always playing songs on his speaker to the girls. It’s… [Read More]

Personal Training Session Number One!

Skinny me inspiration!

I wasn’t sure whether I should write about this or not. I’ve been having personal training sessions! I’ve written numerous times over the years about how I want to loose weight. I always start out well. For a week, maybe even two, I’ll stay on plan. I’ll exercise regularly and I’ll feel great, but it doesn’t last. I soon find myself slipping back into old ways. I’ve tried meal replacement diets, low carb diets, fasting diets, but nothing seems to work. I’ve signed up to diets that I’ve had to pay for and I’ve invested in way too many gym… [Read More]

My Heart is breaking. It’s tough being four 

Twins cuddling

I’ve just sat down after lying in bed with R.  She’s fast asleep now. Hopefully dreaming of all the things she loves. Half an hour ago though it was a completely different story. She was really upset. Crying. Inconsolable.  My words had no effect.  All I could do was hold her in my arms. Shush gently and tell her that I was here. Right next to her and that I wasn’t going anywhere. It’s come totally out of the the blue and I’m putting it down to tiredness.  God, I really hope it is just tiredness and not the start… [Read More]

Topsy and Tim Book Review

TopsyandTim

Topsy and Tim are without a doubt one of our twin girls favourite TV characters. They love watching them to see what adventures they get up too! One of their favourite episodes is when they ‘pet sit’ their friend Kerry’s guinea pigs! I think this has something to do with the fact that their cousins have guinea pigs too! Did you know that Topsy and Tim are also available in other formats not just on TV? We were recently sent some ‘Start School with Topsy and Tim’ books to review, along with a Peppa Pig Going Swimming book! In addition… [Read More]
