Roughly six weeks after having twin girls, my father asked me if I had managed to do anything vaguely intellectual in that time. I realised I hadn’t.
Seeing as I write for a living — albeit in a very different capacity — I was encouraged by my husband (and some others) to start blogging to put down all my feelings into words and to have a creative outlet if ever I get some spare time in the day.
I hear that people quickly forget how difficult pregnancy is and how the first few months of having a baby goes by in a blur. Which must be why people have more than one baby.
So ultimately, this blog is mainly a reminder to yours truly: to never put myself through this again.
