For my girls on their first birthday I have decided to write them a letter in digital form. As they get absolutely everything together I thought I would write them individually. I’d like this to be a tradition but I don’t know if I’ll manage to write one each year. So I’ll start with year … More Dear Dorothy, on your first birthday.
I have now nearly completed a year of breastfeeding my girls. I never really thought I would get to this stage… especially in the beginning. I’ve written about my experience before on my blog, which you can read here . At the point of my previous blog I had been feeding for 5 months … at … More BREASTFEEDING TWINS: What’s it really like?
So this post is a little bit late as the girls are now 11 months old as I write this but I wanted to have a bit of a record of this stage they were in as it was quite different to how they are now. During this stage the girls have still been quite … More Being mum: 6-9 months
Its been a while since I last posted and that is mainly because I have been very busy moving house! On 30th June we headed down to a wedding in Essex and then we came across to Cornwall after that. To be honest, this probably wasn’t the greatest idea we’d ever had as it involved … More Settling in to Cornish life

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. She ended up staying in there until Sunday afternoon and we were advised against taking the trip. We were … More STAYCATION: Our stay-at-home holiday together
Since becoming a mum I have learnt so much about myself. I have discovered aspects of my personality I never really knew existed… or maybe they have developed since I’ve been in this new stage! One of my new found personality traits is determination. I have realised that I have so much more drive and … More Determination
One of my babies spent this weekend in hospital. On Friday, Dorothy was having difficulty breathing and I decided to call 111. They sent an ambulance out for her so off we went. We almost got sent home after a few hours but Dotty’s oxygen levels were low and she was wheezy so we stayed. … More Feeling… exhausted
Today I went to a new class with the girls. I really enjoyed it but there was something niggling in the back of my mind whilst I was there. You see, my girls are 9 months old now. Yet there were babies there who were 7 months old who were already crawling! There was a … More Comparison
