My Twins Have Started In Year 1 Scary!

My five year old twins have started back at school after the summer holidays. They are now in year 1, OMG! Very scary. Is it really two years ago they started nursery at the school going for two hours five times a week? The tears and I don’t want to go to nursery, were fairly common at the beginning, very stressful and upsetting times.Reception last year was a little bit tough when they started and we definitely had a few tears especially when the reality hit home that they had to stay there all day, but they settled and school… [Read More]

My Sunday Photo ( Rock Painting)

The summer holidays are over and as usual it’s had it’s different fads. We had the fidget spinner, but if I’m honest the girls bored of this very quickly. About half way through the holidays a craze started in our neighbourhood, as I’m sure it did in many other neighbourhoods up and down the country. People started to paint rocks and then hide them around the neighbourhood. The idea was really simple. If you find one, you re-hide it somewhere else, but also take a photo and post it to a Facebook group. There were some very elaborate designs that… [Read More]

If I Hadn’t

If I hadn’t got married twice and fathered five children, I would probably be driving a Bentley, living the dream and I’d have pots of money in the bank. Would I change if I could turn back time? That’s a tough question! Material things in life that can make you happy or love that has no conditions or boundaries. Which one would I choose? The truth is, it’s a no brainer. I would have picked the Bentley! No, no, I’m only joking! I would always pick the love of five children and a beautiful, stunning wife, but why you may… [Read More]

Gender Stereotyping Is Not Going To Stop My 5 Year Twin Girls: So They Say

Nearly every morning my five year old twins wake up at around 6am which is ok because they are usually fast asleep by 6.45pm every night. The downside for me is that once I’m awake that’s it, I can’t go back to sleep, so I generally get up with the them, while their mum lies in bed with her eye mask on and earplugs in, dreaming in the land of nod. Haha! I always sit with the girls on the sofa while they watch CBeebies and it’s a time of day I love, because they chat away about all sorts… [Read More]

My Sunday Photo: Summer Is Ending

On Friday we had our final day trip to the seaside this summer. We went to our local beach, where it was a beautiful sunny day. There is no better way to spend a day, than building sandcastles with your children at the seaside. My five year old twins love the beach and it’s a shame that it will most likely be months before we are playing on the sand at the beach again. Autumn/ winter is coming and it will be upon us, before we know it. Roll on next summer for those these fab times, to return, where… [Read More]

My Sunday Photo

My five year old twins spent a number of days making masks from balloons and newspaper, with their mum. This is the finished product and it’s very scary or least I think so Haha! Actually I think they still look very cute although they could be extras in a horror movie. In this world of overdone technology it’s really nice to see kids do crafts, and get so much satisfaction of making something completely by themselves. Sometimes the old pastimes are so easily forgotten, with our online world.

Born For The Blog

Our children are growing up in a blogging world. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? They are very aware of the fact that both mummy and daddy have blogs and from the blogs they on occasion have new toys for no real reason, so in the minds of five year old twins it has to be a win-win situation. Hey, it’s June 10th nothing special in our household about that date, except the fact that the girls just got toys related to the latest film or something similar. or mummy or daddy need to review them. Throughout… [Read More]

My Sunday Photo

Yesterday we visited a National Trust site near to where we live called Dyffryn Gardens. It’s a fantastic house set in the most beautiful gardens. My twin girls got to play croquet and had a great time wandering around the gardens. Discovering many things including a very large pumpkin patch. We went around the house and in one particular room, they were able to dress up as soldiers, which they loved doing. I love this photo, because I think they are so cute! I think I may be a bit bias. Haha! I guess we are now all enlisted to… [Read More]
