About_me_In_the_Snow

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.

MY BOY

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.

BERTIE-BEAN

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 ;)

COSMO-BEAR

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 5 years.

Over the years The Twinkle Diaries has been fortunate enough to work with some amazing brands and our family have had some fantastic experiences, as a result.

This year we’re enormously proud to be on the testing team for the Great Little Trading Company and I’m also a Mark Warner mum.

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.
