'I had a one night stand with my husband’s identical twin brother'

"And it was probably the best sex I've ever had."

Most people can’t tell my husband Danny and his brother Tom apart. Even their own mother mixes them up from time to time. It doesn’t help that they dress in a similar way, have the same hairstyle and the same hair colour.

Once you get talking to them you realise who is who. My husband Danny is an absolute extrovert while his twin is the opposite, the introvert. He speaks softly, doesn’t like being the centre of attention and he’s a great listener. My husband is very loud, some people think he’s obnoxious and you’re lucky if you can get a word in at all.

There are a couple of very subtle physical differences that you only notice when you’ve spent time with both of them – for starters Tom’s nose is slightly misshapen due to a football accident. And Danny’s left eye is slightly ‘squinty’ but, from a distance, it’s difficult to say who is who.

Trusting that your children love you, allows you to do the “parent things” that may sometimes make them dislike you for a while.

There’s a secret I’ve been keeping for years and only one person knows about it

At a friend’s 30th I met a gorgeous guy, he was quite shy but we had a few laughs, a few drinks and ended back at my apartment. We had an amazing night together but, the next day we didn’t exchange numbers. I guess it was a kind of silent agreement that it was a one night fling only.

It was probably the best sex I’d ever had. He’d told me he had a girlfriend, so he made it quite clear our night together wasn’t going to go any further and I didn’t mind, I was just looking for a fun night.

About a year later, I found him on Tinder

We arranged to meet for coffee and I couldn’t believe he didn’t seem to remember me. I’d had my hair cut and dyed so I thought that was why he didn’t recognise me. Anyway, I thought that was okay, I’d remind him of our one night stand when we caught up.
