Getting twins ready to start school

Getting Twins Ready to Start School

Your children starting school is one of the biggest milestones you’ll face. For me it was certainly the most emotive, my babies were really growing up. It was the start of a new chapter, the boys being more independent from us, off to make new friends and learn so many new things.  For families with twins, starting school means there may be some extra things to consider.

Snapshots & Scenes from July 18

I’m so late publishing this post this month. The first half of August seems to have disappeared in minutes and with the boys being away I’ve been a bit distracted and this post has gotten delayed which is a shame as I love putting together these rounds ups of our photos and creating a little video each month.  Our main highlight of July was our weekend away in Bridlington where we had amazing weather and so much fun by the sea.  We also celebrated the milestone of the boys finishing Year 1.

Lily Rose London Watch Giveaway

Lily Rose London Watch Giveaway

For me a watch is my essential accessory. I feel lost when I don’t have one on my wrist. I’ve always loved having a new watch for my birthday, choosing a really special one for my 21st and my 30th.  Because of this, I’m so thrilled to bring you this latest giveaway in collaboration with Lily Rose London.  If you saw or entered the last two giveaways I did with them, you’ll know what a big fan I am of their pieces.

Smoked Fish Curry

Smoked Fish Curry

I always thought I didn’t like curry, I thought they were too spicy and I was really unsure of the ingredients but over the past couple of years I developed a taste for them. I especially love fragrant and creamy curries and I still don’t like too much heat.  This recipe is inspired by a Gousto box recipe we tried a few weeks ago and Jamie Oliver’s comfort food tikka masala. I mixed up the ingredients and it turned out so tasty!
