A morning walk at Cefn Onn Park

Cefn Onn

Cefn Onn country park is situated in North Cardiff, approximately a five minute drive away from our home. It’s a well known local park, but one that I tend to forget exists because it just seems so out of place where it is! It’s hidden away at the end of a long road and accessible via a long path that runs under a motorway bridge. This beautiful woodland park is a real hidden gem! The last time we visited Cefn Onn was when our girls were little. We brought the double pushchair with us and I always remember watching my… [Read More]

JD Williams Clothing Review

JD Williams is the UK’s leading direct home shopping company, operating over 20 successful catalogue brands. A quick online search tells you that they offer value plus size clothing in sizes 12-34 plus underwear and footwear. I’m a size 12 and a healthy weight so I don’t class myself as plus size, but some companies do view size 12 as plus size. Anyway, moving on… I was sent three lovely items to review from JD Williams. The first of which is this gorgeous Neppy Jersey Tunic. I chose in light olive, but it does also come in black and raspberry…. [Read More]

Knowing what I know now….

Hindsight is a wonderful thing! Knowing what I know now about being a twin parent, I thought I would share with you what I would do differently if I could start again! * Put our girls in the same moses basket/cot for naps and bedtime. This is so they get used to each others noise * Only use a swaddle for the first 8 weeks * Put our girls down to sleep awake * Go to a baby group as soon as you can * Try and get out most days. Even if it’s just for a walk * Accept… [Read More]
