Welcome to another week of my guest series Other Bloggers Family Lives, this week I am pleased to be featuring the lovely Beth from Twinderelmo. I love Beth's blog it is one of my all time favourites and I have been reading it more or less since I started blogging two years ago, I have laughed at her posts about Peppa Pig and double buggy's, cried at her posts about losing her beloved mum and related to her posts about life with toddlers. I have met Beth in real life and she is just as lovely and funny in real life as she appears on her blog.
So let's find out a bit more about the family behind Twinderelmo.
1.) Tell me a bit about yourself and your family ?
I'm 30 and have been married for 3 and a half years. We have a 7 year old son and identical twin girls who will be 3 in June. I am now a stay at home parent following voluntary redundancy after maternity leave.
2.) Where do you live ?
We live in Shropshire near the Midlands and I live in the same little town I was born in!
3.) What is your favourite thing to do as a family where you live ?
There are so many fields and little woods nearby that we love going for a long muddy walk of a weekend in. We also have so many gorgeous little shops and cafes near the river, it's lovely to be a tourist and visit them when the sun is shining.
4.) If you could live anywhere where would you ?
Dorset. It's such a special place as my Mom and I used to take trips down there together to visit our favourite place Monkey World. It is such a beautiful part of the country and has so many memories.
5.) Did you grow up close to where you live now and what are your favourite childhood memories of where you grew up ?
My parents brought our family house plot and watched it be built. Dad still lives there now over 36 years later! I lived in the house until I had Charlie, but have only ever moved a few minutes away. The fields we used to play in as kids are where I take my children now and Charlie attends the primary school I did - some of the same teachers are still there!!
6.) Have you got any exciting family plans for the year ahead ?
It'll be all change come September when the girls start nursery. As they do this, Charlie will start year 3 so will go over to the Junior part of the school meaning a new building and I don't wait on the playground. It's sad but exciting that my babies are growing up. I'm also on a health kick so I'm excited to see where I'll be come the end of 2016 (Clue - SKINNY please!!!)
7.) What is the best thing about family life ?
When I look out in the garden and see my husband and kids laughing and playing I realise that whilst it is bloody hard at times these four people are always there for me. To pick me up when I'm down and put a smile on my face. I'm so lucky to have a healthy and happy family and that is more important than anything else.
Thank you Beth I have loved reading your answers, my dad still lives in my childhood home too and it is lovely to go 'home'. I love that your children are growing up in your home town and go to the same school you did. I bet you will be lovely and skinny by the end of the year too (Jealous!).
