Who is your Valentine? Your partner or your children?

 It’s crazy the love you have for a child.  When I was pregnant with my first child, so many people told me about the overwhelming love I would feel as soon as I delivered my baby.   The truth is, I didn’t really!  It kind of grew.  I think a dramatic emergency C -Section, followed by two…

Do you have ‘ME’ time?

No-one else, no kids, partner, family, phone, TV, JUST YOU?! It dawned upon me recently that I have very little, if not until lately, zero me time. When I say me, there’s the odd hour I can catch a bit of catch up TV or a quick coffee/glass of the old Vino when the kids…

What kind of Mum are you?

This week I was thinking about what type of mum I am. If we sit for a second and literally think about little children’s eyes looking at us everyday, what kind of mother do you think they are seeing? It’s hard just going about doing our day to day stuff and surviving until bedtime,  that we…

The best intentions…that offend?

Do you offend people with your routines? So, I am blessed to have the best family ever.  My extended family, Mum, Dad, Brother, Sister and a huge family beyond that. My Mum is one of 11 children and all married with children and were super close.  My mum and Dad would do anything for us and…

How to grow great kids.

So I was listening to a podcast which totally resonated with me. A great motivational speaker, Robin Sherma talks about ‘growing your children’ in the same way you would grow a flower, with water, nurture, sunlight, look after it. At the moment my times with the children are pretty hectic, wild, impatient, patient, I’m learning,…

Two year old sleep regression or just an excuse?

Oh my goodness what a month and we’re only just over half way through January🤓  Since New Year’s Eve I’ve had two poorly children, both with a viral infection that lasted almost two weeks. It started with my son aged 3, a temperature as I was walking out of the door on New Year’s Eve…

Bring your daughter to work day…

Ok so, it wasn’t exactly work as it was a family occasion I was asked to just get up and sing at, rather than a corporate event, private party or such like. The difference being, this is my work as a professional singer, though my children ages 2 & 3 have never being anywhere near…

Say no to Mum shaming

A conversation came up been myself and another mother about  the time frames of which both of our children did things, such as sleeping through, potty training etc, you know the story.  It dawned on me that there is such a thing as mum shaming out there between other mothers.  Where one mother can feel…

Singing was my destiny

Singing and performing was my destiny… it’s all I ever knew. From Salford to Singapore, Chorlton to the Caribbean, Droylsden to Dubaiand everywhere in between. Travelling the world has been fabulous. And then I became a MUM and my heart, reality, and life blew wide open. I’ve just trusted myself to combine these two worlds…
