It’s National Siblings Day!

Ok, so I’m one of 3: I’m the eldest, then my mother had 4 miscarriages, then my brother 6 years younger, then another 4 miscarriages and then my sister 9 years younger. We’re a really close family and I love that about us. My mother wanted a big family, she wanted more than 3, as…

Do you read to your children?

I love this stage of parenting, where I can sit and read a book to them. It’s how I imagined being a mother would be one day. My children are aged 2 & 3 so sometimes they enjoy reading depending on their humour at the time and other times have zero attention span. Reading a…

Shhhhh…Top secret client alert!

Exciting news for a top secret client  I am so thrilled to say that this week I have secured two engagements for team building singing workshops for women in business. One is a VERY high profile team that I am sworn to secrecy with at this stage. Delighted is an understatement.  I have a real passion…

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…

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,…
