Time time time

One thing I’ve realised I need more of is TIME! Time seemed to disappear at the end of last year at an alarming speed. Deadlines crept up on me a little quicker than expected, and I felt I spent a lot of time playing catch up with myself and my to-do list. The time I’d put aside to breathe and be a friend, a wife, a sister, a daughter, and

Christmas is over and a new year is here!

With Christmas came the end of VLOGMAS (I made YouTube videos every day in December in the lead up to the big day), then with the New Year came the end of working on page proofs for Happy Mum, Happy Baby (which is published in just 7 weeks!). Therefore it’s no surprise that I’ve started the year feeling much lighter and ready for what’s to come. Even the horrid throat

‘Putting yourself out there’ is a daunting prospect…

Well, it’s been a few weeks, hasn’t it! I’m so so sorry about that. I’ve been caught up in deadlines for Happy Mum, Happy Baby. I’m now onto the page proofs, so get to read the whole thing once more. It’s overwhelming knowing that the next time I hand the text back over to my editor is the last time I’ll see it before it goes to print. This is

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
