I’m a mum of three mischievous little boys, living back in Surrey after tens years on and off in France and Switzerland. The idea for this blog came to me a while back when I was still abroad. My favourite wine and cheese friend and I would talk about our ‘tens and twos’ moments. We agreed that living abroad came with an abundance of wow moments, take your breath away moments, ‘ten’ moments. From hiking in the Swiss Alps to water skiing on a glimmering lake, nature there was heightened and every weekend felt like a holiday. But then there were the low points, our ‘twos’, when we would pine for home, where everything felt comfortably familiar and just easier. Well now we have taken the plunge and moved back with our brood and so far we’re loving it.

So now that I’m a mum on the cusp of 40, I realise our tens and twos philosophy rings true for many other things. Motherhood, relationships, health, ageing parents….Our lives are littered with highs and lows.

In this blog I hope to share some of my tens and twos moments as I navigate my way through motherhood. Please feel free to comment or share.
