It’s dawned on me recently that my 15 year career in TV production has set me up perfectly for having babies. Here’s why… Turns out that producing, directing and editing a series is an exact mirror of the three trimesters of pregnancy. In the first trimester, you feel nauseous at the overwhelming amount of work…… Continue reading Making TV is just like having a baby.
Mindfulness seems to be one of those buzzwords at the moment. I don’t really know what it is, but I know I just experienced the opposite of it. And I really enjoyed a bit of mindemptiness. Being mindful sounds like having a full head. And thinking about lots of things carefully with a pensive look on…… Continue reading Mindfulness? Nah. It’s all about being mindempty…
I fear this *may* be an unpopular post. But I’d like to add that it is, of course, purely my opinion and whatever you choose to call your child is totally up to you. Feel free to rant about whatever I might call my child on your blog should you so please. Or to my…… Continue reading A short rant about: ‘Princess’.
Today I took 8 month old Little P to her first ever class. Not school, you douche, a music class. You know, tambouriney, singy, cringeworthy actions type class. It’s taken this amount of time, because her older brother has been mainly occupying my time with his attention-seeking requests and my house-wifey/other motherly duties.

So – the question, which coughs…… Continue reading Middle of the Road Mum… too boring to blog?
You may know I’ve been trying to tone up the ex-baby-house wobbly bits with some spinning classes. I’ve been loving (and hating) it! I even take the small people along sometimes, which is a life saver as it’s meant I can be really flexible about what classes I can make. Most days, M asks if we’re…… Continue reading I’m getting ‘virtually’ fit in 2017.
We love a good walk in Windsor Great Park. Brilliant opportunity for a #MySundayPhoto too. If you haven’t found me on Instagram yet, you can follow me here by the way… M takes his bike, I push the buggy and often catch up with a friend as we walk. (If we bump into someone with a remote…… Continue reading Foggy Ruins – #MySundayPhoto
M had to go to hospital for a blood test today. Nothing serious, I might add. I had to pull out my best parenting moves to get him out the front door. At three and a half, he’s old enough to remember his last vaccination – and whilst the jab itself wasn’t painful, he spent the following…… Continue reading Hospitals and wake-up calls
