“So what are your plans about going back to work?” I hear this a lot. People don’t think anything of it and nor should they. But for me it’s actually not that simple. For me there’s no “going back” to work because I never actually started working! I mean, I’ve obviously had jobs before when … More Hi I’m Kate, and I’m a stay at home mum.
As many people who read my blog will know, we love to travel! Last week we had a trip to Berlin booked Monday-Thursday, however on the Friday before, Dorothy was taken in to hospital by ambulance.

As I was having a look through some of my photos earlier, I realised that I’ve never shared any early photos from the hospital. Everything was such a blur in the early days that I barely remember any of it. I thought I’d share some early photos of us and the girls. Trying to get … More Early hospital photos

For the vast majority of my life I have struggled with body image issues.I despised my body and the way it looked at times and felt disgusted when I looked in the mirror. Before I got pregnant I was in the best state of mind I had ever been in regarding my body. I was … More Body image after baby
I found out I was having twins a year a go today. I realised I’d never written an account of how it happened so I decided to write it now! I was just over 13 weeks pregnant. Our scan was on a Friday morning, so Josh and I decided to go for breakfast beforehand – … More I’ve got a surprise for you…
