Our New House – The Estate Agent Pictures

After a whirlwind couple of months, we completed on the sale of our new home on Friday and finally got our hands on the keys. Despite the sale only taking a couple of months to go through from offer to completion, I’d forgotten all the reasons we had fallen in love with it. We both thankfully have an ability to see past decor and as J runs a fire and flood restoration business, he has an eye for spotting any major issues. So hopefully you won’t think we’re too crazy when you scroll through the photos. I have an uncanny knack…

AD | Lansinoh

AD | I was kindly gifted these items when Edie and Mabel were born but Lansinoh exercise no control over the content of this post.  I have had this post on my to write list since about two weeks after the girls were born. That’s nearly two years now – so if that isn’t bad blogger behaviour I don’t know what is! I actually wasn’t asked to write a review though, Lansinoh kindly sent the items through shortly after the girls were born and offered me help with breastfeeding if I wanted it. In terms of feeding I hadn’t really…

The Secret’s Out – We’re Moving Out the Farmhouse

The first owner of the home had quite eclectic taste and so we had spent a lot of our savings and wedding money turning it from the rainbow house, into a calm neutral and modern space. We had just completed the inside renovations that summer and had started working on the garden when found out I wasn’t just growing one but…

Identical Twin Diaries: 18 Months Old

I started drafting this post back in December when Edie and Mabel had just turned 18 months… it seems only fitting that it’s taken me until now, the week before they turn 19 months to actually finish it! This generally happens with most things in my life right now. I haven’t wrote an update post since they were 11 and 1/2 months, so I figured it was about time for a catch up. Things I’ve learnt: I’ve probably covered this before but the happier I am, the happier they are. If I’ve managed to get some decent sleep and wake…

The best twin pushchairs, prams and strollers according to me

The pre-baby me always had this vision that one day if I ever had a baby, that I’d wander round Durham city centre popping into  little boutique cafes to meet friends for coffee. I saw myself pushing a petite little pram over the cobbles, maybe getting take out and heading down the winding path to beside the river for a long walk while the baby cooed away… how wrong I was! Funnily enough whilst pregnant with the twins, I met my friend Katie one day for a cuppa at Flat White (a tiny little hidden away coffee shop on Elvet Bridge that…
