Here goes:

When and why did you start blogging?
I  started blogging in October 2014, so I'm quite a newbie.  The reason was to document our family life, to create memories.  I also like the creative side of blogging and how it links with Pinterest and Instagram - my fave pastimes.  I also enjoyed reading a couple of blogs and thought why not give this a go yourself.

What is the one thing you would be lost without and why?
Most definitely the internet.  I am surfing all day long.  What I ever did in my teenage years without it, I will never know.  I probably had a life instead.

What do you watch on TV?
Emmerdale, Corrie and I am watching 'The Real Housewives of Cheshire' at the moment too. I also love Strictly Come Dancing in the autumn. Oh and I just remembered, I also watch In the Night Garden, every single night.  I am sick of watching Makka Pakka washing his stones...ahem!

If you could do anything what would it be?
Afford to be a 'stay at home mum'.  I would never get bored of being a proper Mummyyummy!

Where was the last place you went on Holiday?
Cala Bona in Majorca.  We love it there and are going back again for the fourth time, this year.

When is your favourite time of year?
Autumn.  I love the cosiness and the colours of autumn.  I can really enjoy my Yankee Candles and I love the build up to Christmas from mid-October onwards.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Probably America.  I love the houses, the values, the people, the weather - everything really.
If not there, Cornwall or The Lake District. My whole family would have to join me though, I couldn't leave them behind.

If you were given £500.00 tomorrow, what would you spend it on?
Boring, I know, but it would be an American Style Fridge Freezer.  I can't fit everything into my existing one, now that we are five.

How did you choose your blog name?
My blog name is a play on words.  I sometimes think that people think I've got things mixed up, but it's all intentional. I would love to be a true 'yummy mummy', but feel that my time as a mummy should come as priority with the yummy part as a bonus, if it happens. The twin part is obvious, but also makes me feel guilty as I have 3 children. Perhaps I should change it to 'Trimummyyummy'. Lauren never complains though, probably because she isn't really one to have her nose shoved out of anything!

Tea or Coffee?
Neither. Never have, never will. I just don't get it!

Eat out or Take away?
Eat out.  I am a very fussy eater and only like plain foods so most take-aways don't do for me.
