A Roadtrip With 11 Month Old Twins

If you’re a regular reader then you’ll know I work on our family business Scream Factory. If you aren’t then to give you a little insight, it’s the largest purpose built Halloween Haunt in the North East and even for me, knowing where all the scares are, is still absolutely terrifying. We were lucky enough to be nominated for two awards at the European Scare Awards held by ScareCon at Alton Towers last week and as much as I wanted to go along with the team, having 11 month old twins, I didn’t think I was going to be able…

Identical Twin Diaries: Five Weeks Old

Time is flying and the girls are getting so big so quickly – at their last weigh in the other day they’d both made 5lbs. They’re still so teeny but it’s miles away from what they were in hospital. Their legs are no longer skinny and they have little rolls and double chins (sorry girls you got that from me).
