The outro ends our episodes with a reminder of how to stay in touch and all our contact/social media details. It then moves onto a clip of our children still hanging on to us, threatening to 'stay awake forever' (oh dear Lord!) as well as trying to get us to fit into their bed to cuddle them.

Our intro shows a snapshot of us getting ready for our podcast - trying to put the kids to bed. They come up with every excuse under the sun including wanting '5 more minutes' to 'I want to stay with you' and 'let's play lego!' We put them to bed, grab some snacks and a hot drink before we settle down for a cosy conversation after hours.
