Hello, I’m Gemma.
I’m a mum of twins (my two little misters) who were born in May 2015. My blog is a place to document the boys’ early years, with (time allowing!) some creative, educational and lifestyle stuff thrown in for good measure!
My background is in childcare and I still have a passion for children’s learning, so I can’t wait to get stuck in to more and more activities as the boys grow. Among my other loves are photography, graphic design, decorating (and redecorating) our home, upcycling and crafts. I love stationery and before I had the boys, I dabbled in letterpress printing, selling my prints and cards on Folksy and Etsy. My shops are currently closed but you can have a peek at some of my work here.
I blog when I can at nap times and in the evenings. Life is busy and time is short but I love to write, and hope you enjoy reading.
Allow me to introduce the rest of the clan…
Hi, I’m Douglas!
I’m the oldest little mister (by a whole nineteen minutes, and don’t you forget it!) My newest skill is running, I love bubbles, my favourite song is Hickory Dickory Dock and I love to pull my socks off so Mummy has to keep putting them back on.
Hi, I’m Arthur!
I’m the youngest little mister, but I can walk too! I like being lifted up high in the air, yanking Daddy’s chest hair and taking off his glasses. My most recent skill is controlling the television!
And not forgetting the Big Mister and the Little Miss…
Hi, I’m John.
Provider of technical expertise. Best friend to dog. Fab husband to Gem, owner of the aforementioned chest hair and proud dad to the two little misters.
Woof! I’m Gracie!
I’m a four-year-old Cocker Spaniel. Life’s been a bit different since those two boys came to stay (if anyone knows when they are leaving let me know). My favourite animals are chicken (eating), squirrel (chasing) and fox (my most loved soft toy).
