Hello! I feel like it’s been a little while since I last posted… Or maybe it’s just because the past week has been manic! But anyway I just felt like writing a little life update in case anyone is interested!
Since the twiglets started school, I’ve been feeling a bit… well… lost. It can be such an emotional time – it certainly has been for me! So how do you cope with feeling sad when your children start school?
If you know me, you may well know that I am not really one for beauty treatments as a rule. I LOVE a massage (though I rarely have them), I get my nails done every so often, but that’s about it. So when a lovely local salon, Nouvelles, got in touch to offer me an LVL lash lift, I felt a bit out of my comfort zone. I mean I’ve never even had my eyebrows done! But it was such a fab opportunity that I jumped at the chance.
Since I became a parent to twins, there have been so many times when the kindness of strangers has quite literally made my day. Just one small act of kindness can have a much bigger impact than you might realise.
This is kind of a hard post to write… But I’ve seen so many posts recently from mums who are struggling with their little ones only wanting them, and not wanting to be with their other half. Now I totally get the whole feeling of being touched out and having your personal space invaded by small people allllllll day. So I get that it would be really hard to be the one solely in demand all the time, and not be able to hand over the reins to someone else for a bit. But what about if it’s the other way round? How do you cope when your child prefers your partner to you?
