Yes, they're twins. Both of them!

Everyday experiences with twins. The ups, downs and downright unexpected.

A bit about me October 22, 2009

I used to have a job. Really. A proper job with a salary, a team of people to manage, a pension scheme I didn’t understand and management meetings I tried my hardest to avoid. I was a working mummy who “had it all”. Well, not quite as it turned out.

My son turned 4 and was about to start school when my super-flexible company turned out not to be quite as super-flexible as school day timings required.

So I quit my job to go freelance. And then my husband got a new job. And then I found out I was pregnant with twins. And then we moved to Dubai.

We like a challenge.

So, here I am, an expat mummy in Dubai with three children, a husband, a dead fish and a rather lovely Filipina helper. Oh, and this blog of our daily ups and downs.

    And despite our lack of contact this is what keeps me upto date with you daily routine and in touch with your lives and is a bloody good read – so keep them coming and we are reading from afar! quote ‘proper job?’ now which one was more rewarding I think you know the answer!!

    I am creating an anthology on the topic “Twins, Triplets & More” and was wondering if you could contribute it. If you wrote a short piece it would help so much. You could write an inspirational, humorous, suspenseful, or entertaining tale. Stories will be published in a book (available in all major bookstores). The word-length should be anywhere between 300 and 4000 words.
    Thank you so much for considering this. I love reading your blog.

    Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to send me a bit of your writing!
    Thanks again,
    Reba Emory

    I read the title of your blog and laughed out loud. We have identical girls and when someone asks me if they’re twins I say “I don’t think so.”

    I think it’s only appropriate.

    Do you still have the dead fish?
