"Welcome to Disney World. Where Dreams Come True" Like most my age I grew up on the classics: wishing I had red hair like Ariel, wanting a pet tiger like Jasmine, whistling in the hope woodland creatures would help me tidy my room and captivated by the beauty and simple elegance of my favourite Princess, … Continue reading A day in Disney
We have just returned home from an amazing 20 day holiday in the USA. Are we crazy? I hear yourself ask. What would possess you to take your twin toddlers on a nine and half hour flight? Well my youngest brother was marrying his American bride and we weren't going to miss it! I have … Continue reading Toddler Twins and A Long Haul Flight.
Recently I've been scrolling through others' social media feeds and feeling inadequate. I see the pictures with bunches of tulips, the perfectly placed coffees and the stay at home mums who've managed to contour their make up!

One of my favourite songs as a teenager was Baz Luhrmann's Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen). Released in 1999 I did not stumble across the song till 2005/2006. It instantly became a hit with me and my best friend. We even downloaded it and listened to it on our MP3s (I'm showing my age!) A … Continue reading Everyone’s Free To Wear Sunscreen
Over the past few weeks I haven't ventured out with all three kids by myself much. Don't get me wrong I haven't become a hermit, my personality wouldn't allow for that!
