People keep saying to me that time flies by once you have babies and they can’t believe how quickly the past year has gone since I had Edie and Mabel. In some ways, I agree… in others, I feel like it’s been a lifetime! Perhaps it’s because they were preemie twins and they haven’t grown as fast as fast as some of my friends singleton babies but I feel like I’m waiting forever for the next milestone or for them to put on a bit of weight.

‘I’m so glad I’m not you.’

The other day I was out and about doing a little window shopping. I was minding my own business waiting for the lift in Dunelm Mill and when it arrived a man and woman got out and saw me standing waiting with my Bugaboo Donkey pushchair. The hoods were completely down as the girls were having their afternoon nap, right on schedule and after a pleasant morning out and about. As the man walked past me, he laughed and said: “oooh double trouble, I’m glad I’m not you.”
