Not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love – Mother Teresa

Happy Mothers Day ! I hope you’ve been enjoying a lovely Mother’s Day and been spoiled with love ! Maybe even a cup of tea in bed !


We were up early (thanks clock change whose bright idea was that ?!) and as 8am rolled around twin daddy made it home loaded with breakfast treats, he whipped up a quick breakfast before heading to bed for the day – the girls were so excited to wish me ‘ Happy Mothers Day Mummy ‘ and honestly it did melt my heart….. We spent the day in the garden, pottering and listening to the radio before indulging in some treats and a Disney movie.


Mother’s Day has been so difficult in the past, it’s been 15 years this year since my own mama passed away so since then Mother’s Day has always been painful, even more so through the times I didn’t think my own dream of becoming a mama would ever come true, I don’t think you ever grow out of needing a cup of tea and hug from your mum …. it’s bittersweet now, as we take flowers to her headstone I count my blessings to have the girls by my side, but I still very much miss her & would love to have her here along this journey through the motherhood…..For me ┬áher loss has made me appreciate the girls so much, their love is my home & there really is no place like home…..


I hope whatever you are going through, this Mothers Day has been kind to you

Once upon a time …

Yesterday,the snow fell & for me this magical scattering of snowflakes signalled winters arrival.

We played in the snow most of the morning and then spent the afternoon snuggled up under a blanket drinking warm milk watching movies & reading books.

The girls love getting cozy and listening to a good story. They have their usual favourites which they insist on each evening at bedtime, but I decided each month to introduce a new book. This month was ‘ The Princess and the Pea’ which was a lovely christmas gift from some friends.


I had already brought the bedding & the girls love looking for the ‘pea’ in their bed !

I’ve found a Valentine’s inspired one for next month and if your over on Instagram I’ll be sharing our monthly books over there.

If you have any suggestions for must reads I’d love to hear them.
