After 12 years of trying to have a baby, we gave up and resigned ourselves to the life of DINKS (Dual income no kids). We partied, holidayed and stayed in bed until lunchtime at the weekend. In 2008 miraculously we discovered I was pregnant, completely naturally with no medical intervention. Tragically just as I hit the 6th month milestone, our little miracle died and part of us died too. Our “safe” little world crumbled around us. Eventually out of the tragedy came the desire to try one more time, again with no medical intervention and in 2010 after a terrifying 9 months our daughter was born, quickly followed in 2011 by her now 8 month old baby sister!
After all those years of just the two of us, the adjustments we have had to make to our lives has been immense, chaotic and at times really hard. Come with me on my journey into my forties as a new mum and a clean freak whose house is now a tip!
