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. The girls started to sit up on their own shortly after our holiday…

Everyone told me that teething twins was going to be horrendous… I kept waiting and waiting for some signs of teeth to appear and nothing seemed to be happening.

So my vision of a dreamy, simple white and grey room with coordinating furniture went out the window. Before the chaos began, we did manage to purchase ourselves a new bed but it was the only exception and our room still features lovely…

Back in June I wrote about how I’d been mourning the loss of my old self… the pre-pregnant me and lots of people got in touch with self care ideas that might help me out. These ideas ranged from taking time out to get my nails done to finding some time to read but then an interesting press release and opportunity popped into my inbox. The release stated ‘Sereniti Salt Retreat is a unique space in Newcastle City Centre that has been created with the sole intention of helping people achieve a better quality of life.’ So they basically had…
