When I saw pictures of George and Amal Clooney attending the royal wedding, my first thoughts were of their twins. Were they nearby, who was looking after them and were their uber famous parents thinking about them much during the ceremony? Because they're extremely private about their babies, we'll possibly never know and either way, … Continue reading Twice as amusing
My husband inadvertently mixed his bright white new bath towel in with his dark clothes wash and it turned into a lovely shade of lilac with a hint of pink. The first words out of his mouth when he saw it was "it's like what happened to Daddy Pig". That got me thinking about Peppa's … Continue reading The craic with Daddy Pig
Along with the line “children say the funniest things” or “give a child a toy and they end up playing with the box”, I’d like to add my own stereotype if I may. Here it goes, “Children make the best detectives”. OK well maybe just in relation to finding things THEY like, but it has … Continue reading Hide and find
Ireland has just had the heaviest snowfall since 1982. It’s all been very exciting. The country may have been at a standstill but it was like having a giant (white) playground outside the door. Beautiful to look at and even better to get stuck into. The array of fun to be had from it were … Continue reading Magical snowy moments
I deliberated for some time about whether to write a post about my hair – I mean what’s the connection between that and the craic with twins?! More than I realised actually. When looking back through photos on my computer I found one of me looking heaving pregnant with such glistening locks that shades are … Continue reading The craic with hair…knot (pun intended)!

Before I explain further, firstly I resolve to do my best to eat meals sitting down as much as possible for a change (even five minutes in succession would be nice!) and make time to have a … Continue reading New year resolutions
As we live in a city, the bus was something I used quite a bit to get around with the twins, as it was handy for the most part. I’d stroll down the hills with the buggy and be grateful for the lift back up later. For the record, Irish public transport, particularly buses wouldn’t … Continue reading To bus or not to bus…..to park or not to park?!
Getting out and about comfortably with twins is extremely important and deserves quite a bit of thought beforehand in relation to how you’ll transport them. Let’s start with car seats. As far as I’m aware - you’re not allowed leave the hospital with a newborn without them. First stage baby seats seemed easy enough to … Continue reading A little bit about transport
In the film world, they say never work with children or animals; with good reason. While both are very cute, they're equally unpredictable and if you've a certain task you need to get done with them, it can become very challenging. In certain circumstances, it's a challenge worth taking, especially when it comes to getting … Continue reading Lights, camera, capture.
Here are my husband's musings below, primarily about sleep; a few weeks after the arrival of our identical twins; “I have recently encountered two characters who would make excellent material for evil nemesis in a blockbuster. Their plan is to conquer the world using only the weapon of sleep deprivation. Yes, it is a powerful … Continue reading Sleeping (male perspective) – part 2
