Glam Night Out at the Children’s Baftas

Being a busy mum means I don’t often get a chance to glam myself up, especially if I’m working on a book and therefore unable to go out much. For the last few months my daily attire has largely been anything comfortable that I can just chuck on and forget about. There’s been lots of grey. Nothing that’s made me feel particularly special, but that’s been fine because I’ve been

Halloween and Bonfire Night Celebrations with Fab Friends

We’ve not really celebrated either Halloween or Bonfire Night for quite some years. We’ve invariably been working on Halloween and then forgotten to organise anywhere to see fireworks. We used to have parties and get all our friends over in fancy dress and make quite an event of it. Decorating the house with skeletons and cobwebs and then lighting a few fireworks and having a play with a couple of

When Everything Arranged Can be Dropped

I’ve always been one for organisation and planning. I’ve had a diary for as long as I can remember and am not the most spontaneous woman in the world – although on the off occasion that I have done something last minute I have seen the joy and fun in it (no anxiety of everything going to plan in the lead up, no overthinking of parking, babysitters and other little

A Fabulous Night In With Two Inspirational Ladies

I know how incredibly lucky I am to be an author. It’s a job thousands of people would love to call their own, yet I’m one of the privileged few who get to sit at my desk and procrastinate on a daily basis, usually with a jar of nutella and a spoon (or a glass of water if I’m feeling good) near by to keep me going. That being said,

A proud wife and friend!

I have been in awe at least twice this week! First with my husband Tom, and then with my wonderful friend Kris Hallenga. Tom’s debut children’s novel The Christmasaurus was published this week, and to celebrate Penguin Random House threw him a rather swanky and unique party at The Natural History Museum. I say unique because I don’t think many authors get their title character built out of crumpets for

A New Book and Buzz Joins McFly!

Today I’m announcing a new book of mine, although unlike my previous published work this one is non-fiction and an honest account of being a mum. I’ve been thinking about writing a mum-themed book for quite some time, but it was only after having Buddy that I really discovered what I wanted to share. When I was pregnant with Buzz I became obsessed with reading ‘mum books’ – the ones

The McFly Tour Kicks Off!

This week Tom and the McFly boys kicked off their tour in Manchester for three nights before heading to Glasgow. It was the first time they’d played together as a four piece since I was pregnant with Buzz, thanks to the McBusted adventure taking over, so it was a pretty special gig! The original plan was for me to take both the boys on tour, but that set up became

Animal Hero Awards!

This week Tom and I attended The Animal Hero Awards, organised by the RSPCA and The Mirror newspaper. There were lots of friendly faces in attendance, and lots of furry friends too. The invite was extended to the feline members of the Fletcher family, but we didn’t think they’d mix particularly well. Unsurprisingly I didn’t see any other cats there either, but all the dogs were very well behaved. In

I’m an Aunty!

Firstly, I must apologise for the lack of blogs over the last few weeks. It’s been fairly busy workwise and our cat has been poorly so there hasn’t been much fun news to report. HOWEVER, lots has happened in this last week or so which is definitely worth shouting about – the biggest news being that I am now an AUNTY. My sister Giorgie started her maternity leave on the

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,
