And this perhaps is my fav throwback pic from 2012 during my first onsite trip to Paris, this pic is so special it reminds me how enthusiatic I was when I started my career , I loved my work and I was so fearless. After becoming a mom the priorties have shifted to mihika, sometimes I miss my work,getting ready everymorning going to ofc daily but nevermind I am sure will be back to track soon, till then lets enjoy this maternity off and travel without the worries of taking off.😁😂😈
P.S : Another train journey awaits for Mihika tomorrow. 😀😊
There’s wonder, joy and magic when you look at the world through the eyes of a child. People are good until proven otherwise, cotton candy is one of life’s greatest gifts, everyday is a fresh start, scars are badges of honor, every trip to the park is a potential to make a new friend, mundane car trips are an adventure, the floor can turn into an active volcano at any point and random objects are used to dodge hot lava AND they forgive quickly, they ask for what they want, they let themselves need people, they are honest, they invent solutions if they can’t find any and they accept people as they are. Let’s learn from them, friends❤️
I’m always searching for more, more money, more in my career, more progress with my body, more from myself, more,more, more.
But why are we always searching? Putting ourselves down in the search of this so called perfect life?
Sometimes I need a reminder to take a minute and focus less on what I want or need & show a little gratitude towards what’s in front of my eyes. And you know what? Life’s actually pretty dang good 💘
Can I just say, I did make up for being a terrible wife by whisking #strongarms off to the Lakes on Sunday-to test out his birthday present, which he and #yellowshoes are modelling in the picture. And, I bought him TWO pieces of humongous cake from that amazing shop in Hawkshead, but it was so busy I couldn’t get a picture 😔so you’ll have to make do with husband and child looking delighted.
* Organised Chaos *
This is what our dining room table has become since having Monty. He likes to be in the action, listening to me getting things done around him. I pick flowers from the garden he can look at while lying in his Sleepyhead. This purple flower is a Vitex Agnus-Castus tree grown beside the garage in our garden; it has a sweet fragrance.
A friend bought Monty this pineapple Plan Toy. I love them because they look and sound old fashioned; it rattles like a maraca. He will enjoy playing with it in no time.
WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY, celebrating my beloved husband's birthday, yesterday! 🎂 #ThaddeusRay and #ElisabethRay have been in on the birthday surprise for weeks, and kept mum about it 🙆 I've not seen my hardworking hot farmer so happy and relaxed in a long long time 😊 I think it is safe to say a good time was had by all... Including #CatherineRay_ who turned 6 months old and had her first taste of something other than breastmilk and fingers 🤣 (She's not a fan of solids yet, story for another time).
I am one to make a big deal of occasions and celebrations. I think it is wonderful to set aside a day/time to celebrate. At the same time, I can't help but contemplate why do we not make an effort to be extra nice every day? Are we afraid the "extra" will then become the norm and go unnoticed? 🤔 methinks it is lovely to have it become "the norm", and then go a little further with each special occasion!! The joy in seeing our loved ones happy, is really next level, and carries us through tougher times 🌹
Liams first theater experience @caixaforum watching original Disney shorts projected on the walls after checking out all kinds of original artwork from the films! He was very into Snow White and I'm not mad about it.😏✨
#tbt to 2 years ago when my 24 hours of labour with #katherinebelle started.
So thankful for the people who positively supported my hope of a natural birth and my gynae who is truly an instrument in God's hand!

Я визжала, нервно улыбалась и смеялась, а потом расплакалась. Очень боюсь высоты. А тут на Мысе Плака стою и переживаю за детей, вдруг не удержим, или неловкое движение😬 а ещё вроде бы и не так уж высоко и не так уж и страшно, но организм за тебя решает, кружится голова, ноги не идут, всю трясет. Муж говорит, я сильно смелая ради инстаграма😂 не, да ну ты брось, какой Инстаграм😅#мысплака
I could pick out a ton of faults and flaws with the way I look in this 🙈 But I'll just focus on how happy my lil twiglets are, cos they don't care about my goofy teeth or squishy bits (although C does look like she's desperate for a wee 🤣)
Feeling so grateful for my amazing husband today 🖤 I'm so tired and run down at the moment (not sure why, I have an exam in 2 weeks & I haven't been sleeping much so I'm blaming stress!). So he's working from home today & looking after the kids so I can rest. Living away from our family means we don't get much support but we still manage to make it work 🌈 #examstress#bestdadever#teamwork
What’s your child’s favourite game? We play doctors and nurses everyday! When I hear Eden give her dolls ice cream medicine, I know I taught my kid well 😆 Ice cream is indeed the best medicine 👌🏼📸 @annahardyphoto for @acornandpip ✨

These 2 😍😍
We are SO lucky to have been blessed with these 2 little monkeys! When people ask me how the twins are going, all I can really say is how lucky we are! (They can usually see the chaos for themselves 🙊) They are such funny little characters & along with their brother, they bring us so much joy 💗💙
As I smiled at one of their little twin interactions (twinteractions 😋) today, I thought to myself that it really is about enjoying the little things ✨
When they make each other giggle
When they run away from you after their bath, giggling as they say, ‘chase!’
When you open their door after their nap & they’re both jumping up & down in their cots with big smiles
When they get things for each other, like their drink bottles (just not when they swap them 🤦🏻♀️)
When they tackle or tickle each other & giggle away
When they share their food or toys with each other
When they comfort each other with cuddles or little pats on the head
When they get up to mischief together with that little sparkle in their eyes 🙈
When they repeat every word they hear (double parrots 🙉)
When they both climb into your lap with different books to read
When they both dance around to music playing or a tv show
When they are both captivated by their big brother & take in his every word as he teaches them
When they both put their bowls on the table & announce they’ve finished breakfast, yelling, ‘finished!’ or ‘all gone!’
When you ask who has done poos & they each say the other ones name (which is apparently ‘brother’ for Mr N 🤣)
When they say ‘nigh nighs’ to each other & give kisses...
I could go on 💛
Whilst there are the extra challenges of having twins & double the cheeky, tearing out your hair moments... there are so many extra special moments that having 2 little ones at the same age & that special bond they have can bring 💗💙 They’re at such a good age at the moment (the extra challenging baby stage does pass 🙌🏼), & seeing them do all these things & more (& with their brother too), makes us feel so lucky to have been blessed with twins 💛
We spent more time at the playground and roaming the grounds then actually watching the game with a four and one year old. But it was fun, because her love language is time spent and she likes her time spent with the “whole family - mama, daddy, duda and me.” These are the moments I want to cherish forever. Oh and #gonats ❤️
