In September 2008, I hauled my huge bump home from work for the last time. In November, my twincesses were born at 38+1 weeks weighing a healthy 6lb 6oz and 6lb 12oz (I’ve the stretch marks to prove it!) Now, all of a sudden, they’re starting nursery school…my little babies are all grown up and I’m left wondering where those 4 years went!
Here we are outside the Nursery Unit with my friend Cora and her daughter. About 5 minutes later I left to the sound of Katie SCREAMING the place down. We waited outside until the screaming stopped then legged it for some caffeine to calm the nerves!
I took advantage of the free time (and a great Facebook offer) and had my hair cut before the girls were picked up..happy as larry with their first day, especially Katie who seemed very proud that she’d stuck it out (and enjoyed it). We headed for ice-cream to celebrate another milestone in the girls’ lives..
What about the momentous occasion outfit? It was all about a great coat today – a Karen Millen mac, a present from my sister in law. I’ve had it for about 18 months now and I’ve decided this autumn to wear it more. In the past, I’ve kept it for special occasions but from now on, I’m going to enjoy it whenever I can.

Two happy girls who can’t wait to go into school again tomorrow! Meanwhile, Mummy is taking the M&S press bus to Dublin this afternoon for their Autumn Winter launch, which is being held in the Grafton Street store. I’ll take lots of pictures and report back later in the week!
