Author mornings are a little different to the Before Baby Days, now a glorious yet blurry time in my mind when I'd wake up at an acceptable hour, go for a walk before work, hell, maybe even make it to 9am without yoghurt in my hair.

I might get rudely awoken by two tiny emperors these days, and I definitely don't have time to take anything more than a cursory look at my face slash outfit, but I'm always excited to get to my desk and feel incredibly lucky to be able to count book writing as part of my career. So I thought I'd share with you how my working mornings pan out...

Where you been this summer, boo? Tell me your news! I hope it has been a sizzler.

I've spent 98 per cent of the summer so far in my writing den, 73 per cent watching Love Island and the other 100 per cent (maths is not my strong point) doing some mothering. Oh and at least 2 per cent sunbathing. #Factor50Thick.

So HI HELLO THERE! I've been missing this blawg and thought it was high time I wrote a little update on life.

The past few months have been BI-ZEE, book-wise. First up, The Year of Saying Yes got a stunz summer makeover. Doesn't she look pretty?

Seven super books for tiny toddlers

Recently I was asked what nursery rhymes I sing to my twins and I was flummoxed. Do I come clean? Or do I pretend to know every single verse of, um, Humpty Dumpty? The truth is, my boys get absolutely zero baby songs from mama. Inappropriate gangster rap with questionable lyrics, on the other hand? I'm afraid so. It's little wonder that they prefer story time to singing time. So when we're not "enjoying" a rousing rendition of No Diggity, these are the current books getting lots of smiles from my tiny toddlers.

Davina's Kitchen Favourites

Guess who's back? Back again? It's only blooming Davina with a sizzling hot new cookbook! Davina's Kitchen Favourites sets out to provide simple, healthy, refined sugar free recipes for the whole family.

There's a lot to like about this book. Firstly, Davina's enthusiasm for healthy food makes you want to get in dat kitchen asap. Secondly, her thoughts on the word 'healthy' itself are simple and sensible in an industry where things can get a bit bonkers. Davina says: "If you tune out the nonsense and the fad diets and the pseudo-science, there are clear nutritional rules that will help us all live longer and live better." Praise be, b*tch.

This is a book geared to feeding your family, be that little ones or older relatives. I'm currently cooking for my twin toddlers (more on my fave baby cookbooks here) and LOVED the ethos of Davina's Kitchen Favourites. Recipes packed full of fruit, vegetables, unrefined carbs and pulses? Let's gooooo!
