Everything’s Changed!

The moment your baby moves from your bedroom into the nursery is pretty monumental, and this week we were not only faced with Buddy doing just that, but also with Buzz moving from the nursery into his new bedroom with his brand new big boy bed (it’s shaped like a tent and is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen). It was a clear reminder that our boys, my two babies,

Weddings and Mumdays

This weekend we went to the wedding of my cousin Sara and her now husband Karl down in New Forest. We stayed at a gorgeous little hotel called Passford House the night before and spent some quality time with my immediate family before seeing all of our aunts, uncles and cousins the following day. We all used to see a lot of each other growing up, but unfortunately it’s only

Date Day for Two!

For Tom’s birthday last week my sister arranged a little daytrip for him and me, insisting that she (at seven months pregnant) had both the children while we had the day off… We jumped at the chance. Saturday morning we got up super early (this was because of the munchkins more than anything else) and got the tube into Waterloo. From there we did something a little different for us and we

Moving office…

Now, anyone who knows me knows I love to make a little den. They’re usually little cubby holes for me to nest away in and either sleep (usually in rehearsal rooms) or get creative. I’ve been in the same office in our house for many years now. When we first moved into our home it was the spot I used to send endless letters to acting agents and casting directors

Enjoying the great outdoors and writing, writing, writing

I love being outside. That was one of the things I absolutely adored about growing up in Essex (which I don’t think is celebrated enough). Essex is beautifully green and living in the small village of Ingatestone meant we would regularly go on long country walks, sometimes runs  and then family bike rides. There was lots of adventure to be had. Even though we’re in Middlesex now there’s still lots

Tom’s surprise 30th birthday and Formula E fun

Last year For Tom’s 30th we had a big BBQ celebration planned BUT had to cancel when he woke up with a tummy bug! This meant that we never really celebrated him entering his thirties. And we couldn’t have that. So I decided to throw him a surprise ‘Tom is still 30′ meal before he turns 31 in two weeks. I can’t tell you how difficult it’s been to keep

Cooking with the Hemsley Sisters!

Every year I draw a blank when wondering what to get Tom for his birthday. He always says that he doesn’t want or need anything (highly unhelpful), and seeing as we’ve spent months trying to de-clutter our house (and getting nowhere) I didn’t want to give him something just for the sake of it. So this year I decided to do something a little different and arranged for him to

Aladdin The Musical and Father’s Day!

This week Tom and I had a special little date night and headed into London for the press night of Aladdin. We knew it would be an important event, but we didn’t get the black tie memo, so we felt extremely scruffy in our smart/casual attire when walking down the purple carpet and spotted everyone looking ridiculously glamorous! Whoops! Aladdin was one of the greats for us when growing up,

Book Launch Party, Being Mum and Meeting Heroes!

This week has been less busy than the week before but somehow I’m far more tired. It could be the chaoticness (I’m inventing a word) of the week before catching up with me, or it could be the fact that the boys have taken it in turns to get me up in the night before waking up for the day at 5AM. The other night Buzz even seemed to think

Publication Week and Appearing on Loose Women!

My fourth novel ALWAYS WITH LOVE finally hit the shops this week, so I’ve been in full promo mode. The day before publication day Tom and I had our first ever live interview together. Sticking with my ITV family, we went onto Loose Women to talk books, babies and viral videos. Having watched the show for years I’m happy to say I had a great time sitting behind the desk
