A few weeks ago, we spent a fabulous morning at Mayfield Lavender with the very lovely Rachel Thornhill. I’ve known Rachel for a few years as she used to teach the twiglets Gymboree before she embarked on her career as a photographer. Her work is amazing so when she offered to take some photos of … Continue reading Twiglet Top Tips – Rachel Thornhill Photography
Back when the twiglets were babies, whenever I met a mum with older twins, one of the main questions I'd end up asking was ‘when will it get easier?’ Always spoken with a slight undertone of crazed desperation, meaning ‘please tell me it gets f**king easier, please, PLEASE!'' 🤣 The other day, as I got … Continue reading Has It Finally Got Easier?

I felt utterly and completely overwhelmed in those first few weeks, even months, and constantly found myself wondering ‘is this normal?’ In the very early days, when we first brought our tiny bundles home, the midwives and health visitor … Continue reading How Do You Know If What You’re Feeling Is Normal?
I'm not too sure what the point of this post is going to be – in fact I'm pretty sure there isn't one.
