Â Hope you had a lovely bank holiday weekend.
The Sats are absolutely thrilled that Frankie and Wayne are expecting a baby. We’re so excited for a third Sats baby and we think they’re going to be wonderful parents. We’d known about their exciting news for a while because Frankie told us straight away. I did the same thing when I found out I was expecting, it’d be really hard to keep it a secret because it’s such exciting news so you naturally want to share it.
There were a few times when I almost let the news about their baby slip! In various interviews they would ask about the Sats getting married and having children and Frankie’s news was in the tip of my tongue but luckily we kept it under wraps.
It seems like we’re all becoming mummies now. Just because we’re in a band it doesn’t mean we’re any different to other women. We meet people, we fall in love then we want to get married and have babies!
I worked as far as I could into my pregnancy and returned quite soon after having Aoife but I never sacrificed my family time, it’s very precious to me. I’ve showed Rochelle and Frankie that it is possible to juggle the two. I’m always there for them and very happy to give advice if they need it.
We saw Rochelle last week. She’s doing great, she’s really fit and healthy. There are only a few weeks to go until her and Marvin’s baby is due and I think she’s got to that point in her pregnancy where she really wants to meet the baby and of course the Sats aunties can’t wait either!
I’m off to the driving range with Ben tonight. We went at the weekend with Aoife and some friends and I’m totally hooked. We started off on the crazy golf then we hit some balls. I’ve never played properly before but Ben and my dad are both pretty good so I’m really keen to get into it.
Ben is trying to teach me but I’m probably going to need some proper lessons. He’s told me I’ve got a really good swing. When I was younger I would sometimes go along with my dad and I couldn’t even get the ball off of the tee but now I can swing and lift the ball off the ground so that feels like an achievement in itself!
Hopefully the weather will last because I really want to get better at it, I’m so busy with the band and being a mum but I do still want to have another outlet and I think golf could be my new thing! It strikes me as being very relaxing and it’s always good to get outdoors.
I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to in the sunshine.
Love from Una x
