Understanding Changes Everything

I absolutely love Christmas. I love making my tree beautiful; I love baking the cookies that my children then give to all our neighbours; I love wrapping gifts and making them look stunning; I love carol-singing; I love making Christingles and I love opening my presents. And so I really really don’t have much time for people who openly moan about Christmas – you know the ones that start being negative as soon as the shops play Christmas music or seem to get cross when you give them a present.

Snobbery, Tack and Last Minute Shopping

It's that time of year again. The time when I drag out the present box from under the bed to see what gems I can find that could be given away to save me a few quid this Christmas. The problem is my present box is filled with unwanted presents from the last ten years. I should really just throw them away; after all if they are too tacky for me to want to keep or use, then they are too tacky to give away.

Things I wish I'd been taught at school

Assume everyone will love me.

Now I am not saying for a second that I think that wherever I go people will love me. But there is a great deal to be said for learning this one single social skill of assuming that whoever you will meet and speak to, you will naturally get on. I think the technically correct terminology for this is 'assume rapport' and it is a really powerful tool for going into new situations such as meetings or interviews or even parent/toddler groups with confidence. I always struggle with the advice that you should try and picture people naked when you have to give a talk or do an interview - I mean what the heck is that about? Why would I want to have that image in my head? So so much easier just to assume that the situation will be easy and relaxed; you will be a success and that you are an instantly likable person. I find that when you truly start acting like you believe this, it will actually start to become a reality.

A Right Royal Malarkey

I'm excited! Today has arrived. The kids are off school, the hubby is off work, the housework is on hold and an estimated 2 billion people will be pressing the pause button on their lives to watch history in the making as our very own Willy chops and Kate Middleton get married.

Now I have always had a slight affinity with Will as he was born on the same day as me - which I know sounds slightly ridiculous as every 365th person shares the same birthday. But I remember as a four year old that this royal baby had been born on MY birthday - and so I felt ever so slightly special. So there we are - Willy and I are on 'special mates' terms and as such I kind of feel like today my little brother is getting married.

A Frazzled Yummy Mummy

Parenting can turn you from super-sizzling career woman to frazzled but yummy mummy. I'm not entirely sure at which point the transformation takes place. I think it might just be a change in the way the brain works that occurs at conception and becomes increasingly obvious once your precious bundle of joy arrives.

It Makes It All Worthwhile...


  • when I see my 'special needs' child comforting his little brother

  • when I see the excitement and anticipation in his face as he gives me a home made card or bunch of dandelions
