I'm an ambitious and stubborn 30-something writer, hospitality graduate and an Independent consultant with the Body Shop at Home (my side gig - feel free to message me about it!). Married to a wonderful man, mum to three amazing little girls and one boy, who are my absolute world. 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 two singletons. 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!
Mike AKA "Tinderboy" is m husband of 3 years and knight in shining armour (the kids used to call him "Mike the Knight"). Obviously, we met on Tinder! Mike is a family man and a car fanatic through and through. He is the most fantastic Daddy my children could ever wish for and we are all blessed to have him in our lives.
Bunny, 13 years old. Stubborn, creative and A TEENAGER (need I say anymore?). A gymnast since she was 5 years old, Bunny can often be found upside down. She has a somewhat unique sense of style and has always ALWAYS wanted to be a fashion designer. Her outfit choices are usually disastrous, but aren't all the top fashion designers a little nuts? Likely to have a career in marketing, as she regularly quotes adverts, describes how great products are and does accidental sales pitches in shops!
Fluffy (8 years old) is the first born of my twins, by 35 minutes (YES, it was a natural birth). She is the thumb-sucker and the sensitive soul of the family! She was the first to speak and the last to walk, but has always been a very fast learner. She loves books, dresses, cuddly toys and anything to do with dogs (except the real thing). When she grows up, she says she wants to be a vet or a doctor and live next door to Mummy.
Tiny (8 years old) was the littlest twin, born weighing just 4lbs 1oz. She is the leftie with the short attention span and the feisty attitude - you won't want to cross this girl when she's a teenager! Tiny is a typical girly girl who loves hair, shoes, dressing up and boys! When she grows up, she wants to live with her husband and be a school teacher.
BEAR (Formerly Baby Bear) is 4 years old and a total Mummy's boy. Bear is the clever clogs of the family and a self-professed "cutie". He loves anything to do with space, dinosaurs, cars, trains, planes, diggers, boats, Paw Patrol, PJ Masks and role play cooking and cleaning! A little spoilt as he's "the only boy".
In older posts (Pre-2016) you may also come across "Jonny" (my ex husband) and "SD" (someone I almost dated once - dodged a bullet there!).
