Travel with Twins – Walt Disney World

The first time we flew abroad with the twins, they were only seven months old and I was really anxious. I worried about carrying milk through security and how many nappies I needed to take to see me through the week… it turned out I didn’t really need to worry at all. It was certainly different to holiday’s we’ve had pre-children but it wasn’t a bad experience. Since our week in the Canaries went so well, we took several stay-cations and road trips in the UK with the girls and my confidence traveling with them sky rocketed. So after a…

My great car seat debate…

I had very little knowledge of car seats when I was pregnant and to be perfectly honest, I still don’t. I find the whole combination, stage 0, 1, 2, 3 thing really confusing and I ended up buying a pair of Maxi Cosi Pebble seats for when the twins first arrived. The reasons why I bought them; I knew that the Bugaboo I’d bought came with a Maxi Cosi adapter and there was a really good deal on at Mamas and Papas which included free rain covers and backseat mirrors. When the girls were here, I’d posted a picture of…

Mini Breaks With One Year Old Twins

If you follow my Instagram, you’ll know we haven’t had the easiest of times lately. Work and life in general have been making things not bad but just sour and so after a run of illnesses, teething and rubbish stuff, J came home from work one day and said, ‘let’s go away.’ We had a quick local search but most things were fully booked given the short notice and on a whim, I searched for Edinburgh. It was a long shot as it was the week before the Fringe started but it’s only two hours drive from where we live…

New York New York

November seems like a lifetime ago now but things just kept getting in the way of me sitting down and really having the time to write this post! Blogging isn’t a business to me and it never has been. Don’t get me wrong it’s certainly helped my career and shaped the path I took – I’ve been writing online since I was 13 (& I’m 28 now) but it has always been because I enjoyed it. When I didn’t enjoy writing online… I didn’t do it and so over Christmas, naturally spending time with my family and friends took precedent.…

Sunny Memories

This feels like a lifetime ago now but as a matter of fact it was only a few weeks. I spent the last week of January on holiday with my family in the Canary Islands. It was a blissful 25 degrees every day and was a very welcome break. While it was very much a healthy trip, I did treat myself to a couple glasses of champagne (since it was free). My brother meanwhile preferred the most gigantic Bombay Sapphire Gin cocktails! I very much miss waking up to bright sunshine, (not to mention spending my afternoons on a Bali…
