Do you believe in passing down your culture to your children?

Mine is St Patrick’s Day 🙂 I find it fascinating that when a child is born,  it is born as a complete blank canvas, imagine this…like a canvas you would paint on, just blank with nothing on it. We can paint that however we like for our child, therefore, we set the ball rolling as…

Single and Childless

So tonight the kiddies were asleep by 6.05pm. They were falling asleep on the sofa, I put them to bed and for the first time in 3 years, and I thought, I’ll watch a movie, like the old days!  6.30PM the earliest movie night in history, as I know I’ll be in my own bed…

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…

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…

What is contentment?

“A state of happiness and satisfaction. He found contentment in living a simple life in the country”  This is how I feel today. I’ve had the busiest of weekends. I’m so lucky that I work for myself, most of my work is evenings at the weekend and some daytime events mid week.The children are at…

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…

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…
