About Hannah and the Mini Beast

Hi there,

I'm Hannah 31 year old mum to four very lively and very wild boys -

Noah - 9yrs old is into everything Star Wars, Minecraft, WWE.
He loves to read and draw when I can tear him away from his PS4 and the Xbox.
Noah was born at home and delivered by my mum who is the home birth lead for Sutton and Epsom.

My identical Twins Alex and Oscar 4 are my wildlings, they are complete nutcases and find everything and anything funny.
There main loves are TMNT, Avengers, Batman, Minions.
They are very much outdoorsy boys and would take running around in the open to being stuck at home.
They are survivors of twin to twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS)  they were born at 33 weeks and spent 2 weeks in ICU.

Then there's little Ru bear - 2 
He loves Paw Patrol, Bing and Cars.
He's happiest when inside a box or laundry basket.
He was also born at home with the help of my mum.

After both the twins and Ru I "ate my placenta"
I did the placenta smoothie and had the capsules.
I swear by them and would do it all again if I was to have another baby.

I have moebius syndrome which is an extremely rare congenital neurological disorder which is characterized by facial paralysis and the inability to move the eyes from side to side.
I lack facial expressions which does make it difficult for people to see what I'm feeling.

For people who have been around me long enough do say they don't even notice it, but for new people I'm sure it must be quite strange.
I do get stared at a bit when I'm out which used to get me down, but since having the boys I have less time to notice what others are doing as I'm so busy keeping my eyes on them.
I try not to let it get in the way and I'm as friendly as I can be.

I was also bullied a lot at school, but I think I've only become a stronger person for it.
The boys don't see me as someone whose different, they just see me for me.

As a new venture my partner Jon and myself have just set up an online shop - selling cool and funky homeware - www.islandhomewares.co.uk why not head over and have a peek at what's in stock!

We live in Norfolk.
We have a Pointer X named Ray, who we rescued him from a Cyprus rescue centre.
We also have a little black and white cat named Indie, and a rabbit named Bella.

We love finding family friendly places to visit,
such as farms,
National trust places,
exploring the woods,
making Dens,
muddy puddle jumping,
walks along the beach,
snuggling up on the sofa to watch a new film or read a new book.
...you name it we love it.
