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…

What is a good Mother?

What actually defines a good mother? One who can show love unconditionally? One who finds it hard to show love physically but can clothe her children well? Is it someone who puts herself second because she loves her children so? Or is it someone who puts herself first in order to be a better mum…

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…

Do you believe in International Women’s Day?

By being a woman alone, you are making a difference.  You see, I’m not a feminist, I support both men and women and I think we all do an incredible job.  I am not trying to prove anything to any man except to prove to myself alone, firstly, that I can do and be anything I…

You have permission to rest.

I saw this quote and it really resonated with me: ‘You are not responsible for everything  that is broke’  This used to be me.  ‘You do not have to try to make everyone happy.’  This IS me.   ‘For now, take time for you.’  This is GOING to be me.  ‘It’s time to replenish.’  This Is GOING…

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…
