I'm an ambitious and stubborn 31 year old writer, working, hospitality graduate, engaged to a wonderful man, mum to three amazing little girls and one baby boy. I'm a twice cancer survivor (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia and Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma) and survivor of the very deadly HELLP Syndrome, all of which are things I try to raise awareness of on this blog. In addition to spending time with my wonderful family, I have a love of travel, poetry, dancing, music, writing, social media, the Somerset Carnivals and blogging.
I aim to use this blog to tell the funny, beautiful and unsightly truth of being crazy with twins - it began with my twin pregnancy and will continue through raising twins and a singleton, as well as my current pregnancy. There are also posts on this blog about being a stepmum and many posts written whilst my ex husband and I were still together. I am brutally honest, I wear my heart on my sleeve and I bare all my scars and my heartaches on this blog.
It is a journey of tears, sarcasm, rants and giggles!
Bunny, 9 years old. Stubborn, creative and very kind. She has a somewhat unique sense of style and loves "designing" her own outfits. They are usually disastrous, but very cute. Likely to have a career in marketing, as she regularly quotes adverts, describes how great products are and does accidental sales pitches in shops! Bunny loves all things pink, purple and yellow, glittery, sparkly or shiny. Dresses instead of trousers ALWAYS and has quite a temper on her. She was angelic until she started Primary school, now she is 9 going on 13 in the attitude stakes.
Fluffy, the first of born of our twins, by 35 minutes (YES, it was a natural birth). She's got the longest hair and the most curls. The leftie, the thumb-sucker and the one who hears you say no, but does it anyway! She has an ultra cheeky grin and a full set of teeth (by time she was 18months). Fluffy loves watching tele, looking at books, destroying books, chatting, laughing and doing anything which involves either climbing or sitting down. The first to speak, the last to walk, but she is a very fast learner and spends little time practising.
Tiny, the littlest twin, was born weighing just 4lbs 1oz. She has the softest hair and the cheekiest grin, but mostly does as she's told. She was a mummy's girl at first, because Daddy was too scared to hold her, because she was just so tiny, but now is most definitely a Daddy's girl (and has him wrapped around her little finger). Tiny has an obsession with hair and shoes and is often found with a hairbrush in her hand, wearing someone else's shoes! The first to crawl and the first to walk, but she takes a long time to perfect things.
My beautiful cheeky little boy, currently 10 months old (will be 1 year old in July 2017). Already standing and trying to walk, absolutely loves his food. His favourite things are his Jumperoo, swings at the park and breastmilk!
