A very British babymoon: Mawgan Porth, Cornwall

When my best girl recently asked if a pre-baby holiday was a good idea, I think my reply was a smidge hysterical. "YESSSSS DO IT" Because the chance to hang out with your other half before your little bundle arrives / endless nappy duty begins is so worth it!

In fact, don't judge, a babymoon (gross name but let's go with it) was one of the first things I looked into when I found out I was pregnant. After maternity clothes how to look after babies, of course. I was thinking long haul, because my 'moon would need a beach, some sunshine and a tonne of booze free cocktails. But then we found out that there were two babies on board so I'd become a no fly zone much earlier than planned. Probs for the best...  I'm not convinced that even the biggest of jumbos would have got airborne with me and my 7-and-a-half-month bump on board.

So we started to look closer to home and I tried very hard to put thoughts of beach and sunshine aside.

Baby shopping: moses baskets

Kitting out the nursery was one of my favourite things to do while pregnant. Suddenly a whole new world of shopping opportunities had opened up! Although there was one teeny tiny pitfall. 'Why is everything pink, blue or white and lacy?' I'd shout in the middle of a baby shop before brushing my outburst aside as pregnancy hormones and waddling sauntering off. Probably to find more cake.

Not that pink, blue or lacy white are bad things. We just didn't know whether we were having boy twins, girl twins or one-of-each-twins at the time, and we weren't keen on those stereotypical colour schemes anyway. I'm a girl and I don't love pink, unless it's in Muji pen form.

So what to buy? Well, HELLO timely advertising from moKee on my Instagram feed. I clicked onto their website and was thrilled to find oodles of nursery options in fun, neutral colour schemes. Just look at these!
