Last weekend Scott, Lily and I jumped on a bus and went to explore The British Museum in London. We are lucky to live within easy travel of most of the museums in London but have never really made the most of that so we have decided to start visiting more places – particularly as most of them are free entry so it’s a relatively cheap day out!
I’m so excited to have Beth from Twinderelmo with us today to join in with the ‘This Parenting Lark’ series. Beth’s blog was one of the first parenting blogs I ever read and I love it – super inspiring!
Tell me a little bit about yourself and your family
My name is Beth and I am in my 30s. I am a married Mother of three – my son Charlie has just turned 8 and I have identical twin daughters who are 3.5. We live in Shropshire and I am a full time stay at home parent after taking voluntary redundancy from my local authority job when on maternity leave.
Tell me a little bit about your blog
I started Twinderelmo in October 2013 as a positive take on twin pregnancy. When I found out I was having the girls, google led me to believe I would definitely have them incredibly prematurely and they would be in special care for weeks weighing a few pounds. My pregnancy was the complete opposite so I wanted to try to promote that not all twin pregnancies are high risk.
Was supposed to post this yesterday but ended up having a super busy day and not getting round to it 🙂
My meal plan this week is slightly fractured as I am out on two evenings – tonight with Mayflower Blogs for Giovanna Fletcher’s book launch *exciting* and on Thursday I’m out with my old team at work for dinner so it’s a busy week.
That being said I’ve still planned meals for Scott and Lily for those days and shopped for them so they have stuff to eat!
It feels like forever since I had the most amazing holiday in Iceland with my friend Carla (of Carla Thomas Photography) back in November – and I can’t believe its taken me this long to post about it *tut-tut* but here it is – our incredible trip to Iceland.
I’ve been pretty useless on the blog front this past week or so – I’ve had an awful lot on my plate and it’s left me feeling pretty uninspired and exhausted at the end of everyday. Plus I’m not sleeping very well which hasn’t helped. That being said I’m still really enjoying taking the time out to think about the things that have made me grateful.
- Lily loving her first ever ballet class
- Taking the afternoon off of work to go and watch Sing with Scott and Lily at the cinema
- Listening to Lily’s delight at getting to go on a ‘daddy-daughter’ date to see Lego Batman last week
This week’s ‘This Parenting Lark’ post features Sarah from Digital Motherhood – thanks so much for sharing Sarah!
Hi Sarah, tell us a little bit about yourself and your family
I’m Sarah, 36 from Poole in Dorset. I’ve been married for 9 years and we have a daughter who is 5.
Tell us a little bit about your blog
I set up my blog Digital Motherhood in August 2015 (though it had a slightly different name then!). It’s mainly focused around being a working mum, but also touches on anything parenting, family, days out, reviews and social media.
I was nominated by the gorgeous Bethany at A Blonde & A Baby to answer 10 questions that she put together as part of her post for the Sunshine Blogger Awards. I love reading these types of posts but I rarely ever join in (basically because I’m boring ha!) but I figured I would this time as I think they are a great way to get to know other bloggers 🙂 So here goes…
