Hello! Welcome to The Twinkle Diaries.
I’m Caro — designer, maker, mama to twins — and this is my diary.
A little space for me to record my thoughts but, most of all, a virtual memory box for my beautiful boys.
I live in a wonky cottage, in Middle England, with my little family.
He is one clever cookie. An encyclopaedic brain when it comes to trivia; he can build things, make things and he’s fanatical about rugby and cricket.
Long suffering with my crazy ideas, he’s helped me upcycle a caravan and is wholly responsible for building my long awaited garden office too.
He’s the love of my life — unquestionably — and the most amazing daddy to our twin sons (my tiny boys) who were born in the spring of 2013.
The organiser. This boy likes order; lines of cars, books in bags plus he’s a whizz at building things too. He’s got a killer right arm (future cricket star perhaps?) and he loves his bunny (Bee-Ya) more than life itself.
A little shyer than his brother generally, until he’s at a festival when he suddenly comes into his own. A bit like his mama ;)
The entertainer. Chatty, cheeky and emotionally intelligent. Cosmo is 30 seconds younger than his twin but has always reached all of his milestones first.
This little chap is a sensitive soul who likes to talk — unless Paw Patrol is on and then you won’t get any eye contact from him until it’s finished. He does an awesome Peppa-Pig impression too.
So that’s us!
A POTTED HISTORY OF THE TWINKLE DIARIES
I began The Twinkle Diaries when I was 17 weeks pregnant and never anticipated that I’d still be writing after 6 years.
I work really, really hard to create every single post or film and — as a result — our family has been fortunate enough to work with some amazing brands and we’ve had some fantastic experiences.
This little space on the internet is more than a blog.
It’s my creative outlet, a memory box for my boys and a diary, charting family milestones.
This is our story.
