1. Who are you and what do you do?
I am known as Troubles Mum and I am the author of parenting blog Trouble Doubled. I am mum to four very lively girls, including twins, and spend most of my time trying to get us all through to bedtime unscathed.
2. Do you have any pearls of wisdom to pass on to prospective parents of twins?
Gosh, yes, a lot! I think the thing that has struck me the most about being a multiple-mummy is the amount of attention you attract. For someone like me who is very private, this takes a lot of getting used to, but getting used to it you must or it would drive you insane.
3. What would you tell your 16 year old self?
To ignore the silly girls in your class who try to grind you down. You will soon have a way more interesting life than them, and once you're out of that dump of a school, you won't look back.
4. Who makes you laugh?
The children. They all do something that amuses me on a daily basis. Even the twins, who are only 14 months old, do things like pull funny faces or do chasing games.
5. How do you spend your spare time?
Blogging. My only spare time is in the evenings and I can't go very far, so I blog a lot.
6. What was the first concert you went to?
Oooh, wow, that's a long time ago. It could have been The Beautiful South in Hull around 1992. Maybe. Can't remember. I think that was it. I have seen them twice, and also seen Blur, Pulp, Linkin Park, The Levellers, James, and The Manic Street Preachers among others.
7. Have you ever won anything?
Yes, lots of prizes from competitions in magazines and things. I can't remember ever winning a major contest, but I did come third in the Hull Schools Trampolining competition as a teenager. I did a lot of sport, so have won various little tournaments and matches along the way.
8. Do you have a favourite song?
No, not really. I have a wide taste in music and have lots of tunes that I love.
9. If there was a film made about your life, who would you like to play you?
Well, as no-one knows what I look like, I will say Reece Witherspoon. Honestly, probably Laurel out of Emmerdale. With glasses.
10. What is your favourite thing to do/place to visit with your children?
All my children love swimming. We don't get to go very often because if we all want to go, we have to enlist the help of at least one more adult, so usually have to wait for Grandma and Grandad to come too. I'm so pleased the girls have inherited my love of physical activity.
