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.

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

Keys To Contentment

(or at least feeling vaguely content for some of the time)

Love What You Have
Don't you just hate it when you are talking to someone and they are continually looking over your shoulder to see who else they can talk to or what else they could be doing? Read more
