We’re finally starting to get used to our new routine with our days revolving around the school run. It seems like she has only just started and yet we’re only a month away from half term. We’re hoping to go away for at least part of the week, we’re so aware now of how important it is to make the most of the time we all have together. Our week Work has been busy for me this week but in an enjoyable way. I’ve got some exciting new projects going on that are great fun but not too time consuming.…

We’re finally starting to settle into our new routine now that the dreaded school run is part of our lives. For the first week, Libby only went to school in the morning but yesterday she started to go for the whole day. Whilst she’s predictably tired, she’s also loving every moment of it. For Lia, being on her own without her big sister has been quite lonely. At various points during the day she asks if Libby’s back yet, or if she’ll be joining us for lunch. I think it will take a little while to get used to having…

We all love the beach and it feels like we should make the most of holidays to swim, surf and just play in the sand. But on a bank holiday weekend, wherever you go the coast is always busy. Going somewhere inland for a few days in the Elan Valley was a bit of a revelation. The campsite was quite full but every pitch had an enormous amount of space. The scenery was stunning, and we were able…

This time last week, I was nervously looking forward to my trip to the Black Forest. I was excited of course, but it would be the first time I’d left my girls for more than a night since I had them. As it turned out, I didn’t have much to worry about. We were all sad when I left and the few nights I was to be away seemed like a lifetime. Libby in particular was upset, but she coped with it well and I went on my way. I had an amazing trip and going to the Black Forest was…
