This post was originally going to be ten questions mums ask themselves daily, but then it snowballed as I realised there were a lot more than ten!!Life's questions...Why do I bother having cushions on the sofa? (Please tell me your cushions spend more time on the floor than on the sofa too?)Why do I spend time cooking because my dinner always ends up cold and the kids never eat it if it's not pizza or sausage?Why do I make a packed lunch with morning and afternoon tea (snack time . . .

Getting a DNA test for twins: Are your twins identical or non-identical?

How will I survive long haul travel with pre-school twins and a toddler?!
As regular readers will know, later this year we're going to be making the move from the UK to Australia. This means long haul travel with twins who will be four and a baby just coming up to two. I'm pretty terrified, mostly because my boys can be terrors when they want to be. When they decide to act up, trying to control them is so tricky (did you read about our trip to the dentists last year?) . . . Keep Reading
