Chilled out

If there’s one thing I adore about having twins it’s the fact they have their own special bond which I can see developing every single day. Of course don’t think we don’t have fights as WE DO! and we have many, one of Bessie’s favourite sayings recently is ‘Shut Up Alice!’ Have no idea where she got those words from *cough*

Our days are busy, messy and often so jammed packed we never get everything done so when there is time to chill out, we do.

As a family we’re active and on the go, swimming, beach trips, DIY more so recently, gardening and all the other tasks that are part of family life, these pastimes of course tire the girls out and the sofa is a favourite place of there’s for crashing out. You may have seen our sofa is old and you’d be right to think so, Paul bought it back in his bachelor days and when the girls’ arrived it was our intention to upgrade to a beautiful brand new leather one but then the girls started bringing up milk, catching colds and cleaning their noses on the material (not intentionally, they were only tiny!) so the spanking brand new leather one has been pushed back well – for three years now! And whilst we’re at the sticky fingers stage I can’t see my dream brown leather sofa arriving for a while yet, sigh.

Talking of Sticky Fingers, Tara wants Chilled out this week so here are my daughters in true chillax twin mode….

Make sure you head over to Tara’s place to see all the other Chilled Out photos

      H&M the dresses, they’re lovely as they’re easy to clean and nice and fresh to wear. I should have pulled Alice’s dress down but if I had she would have moved and I’d have lost the moment, so nappy on show!
      Chillax is annoying – I agree but chill out babe, let it go! xx

    Speaking from experience that bond will only get stronger as they get older, despite all the fights they may have.. Beautiful little girls..
