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 recognising letters of the alphabet! I love trains, cars and being outside.

Hi, I’m Arthur!

I’m the youngest little mister, but I can do everything my brother can! I love playing shops and making things go ‘beep’ on the scanner, and I love trains and cars too! My favourite book is ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt.’


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 and proud dad to the two little misters.

Woof! I’m Gracie!

I’m a five-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).

    Just thought I’d drop by to find out a bit more about you. Love your blog design, photography and your whole ‘about me’ page. I think I need to update mine!

      Hi Ruth, thank you so much! That’s really kind of you. I find writing these pages and bios one of the most difficult things! I’ve just had a look at yours and think it looks great! I would have to say synchronised naps would be in my top 5 favourite things too, although I’m sure it’s easier getting twins on the same nap schedule than siblings! Those quiet moments are much needed, aren’t they? Look forward to getting to know you better x

    I love your about me page set up and how you’ve introduced your whole family, fabulous idea! I’m also a big fan of your prints – you’ll have to start that back up again! xx

      Thank you so much Cat! I would love to get back to printing but it’s just far too time consuming at the moment, plus it takes up so much room to set up! x
