Aoife’s in the ‘wow’ phase

Hi lovely readers,

Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend.

I’ve got some really cute photos of Aoife to share with you all. She turned one in March and she’s really coming into her own now. She’s at that age now where she’s discovering new things every day and is really intrigued by what’s going on in the world around here – everything is ‘wow!’ at the moment. I’m not sure where she picked the word up from but it seems like it can be applied to just about everything in her world at the moment! Even really little things like she’ll notice flowers in the garden and she’ll point at them all wide-eyed and amazed.

She’s still woofing at every dog she sees – whether it’s on the TV, in a book or in real life – she just woofs! I can’t take my eyes off of her at the moment because she tears off. She’s learnt how to run and there’s no stopping her. She runs for a bit then stumbles, we say she looks like a little drunken sailor when she’s running around.

The photos are from when I took Aoife to work with me. I’m doing some work with the children’s toy company Fisher Price for their new range called ‘Little People Big Discoveries’. It’s aimed at Aoife’s age group and the idea is that they have toys that they grow up with.

They’ve been a real hit with Aoife – so much so that she climbed into the box for Princess castle when it arrived! The little farm is a favourite of hers too – she’s worked out how to press the buttons to make the animals make their noises. We ask her ‘what does the cow say’ and she goes ‘MOOOOO!’. Animals are a big favourite of hers, I think we might hold off on getting a pet for a while though!

Speak to you soon!

Celebrating five years of The Sats!

Hello lovely readers,

Hope you’ve all had a great week.

We shot the video for our new single Disco Love last week. There was lots to fit in but we managed it all in a day. Because there are various different storylines we had a few different looks so we got to dress up all day – the Sats were in their element!

Time has really flown by and last weekend the Sats celebrated their five year anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been half a decade since our first single If This Is Love.

If someone had asked me five years ago where I thought I’d be now, I’d never have imagined I would be Ben’s wife or that we’d have had a baby together! Five years ago I was single having just broken up with my boyfriend and I was living on my own in a little flat in London.

I don’t look back and think I was a different person or anything but I’m now a wife and a mother so I do feel older and wiser. I sometimes have to pinch myself when I come home from doing a job I love to our little family. I find their support and love very comforting and I wouldn’t give it up for anything in the world.

When someone asks you that question – “Where do you see yourself in however many years time?” – I find it impossible to answer. Of course you know where you’d like to be and you have hopes and dreams but you just don’t know where life will take you.

Five years is a long time for a girl band to be together and I’m very glad to say we’re still very much together. We’ve managed to make motherhood, families and marriage work alongside our careers and I think we’re very lucky to have done so – here’s to the next five years!

This weekend, Ben and I are going to a golf tournament for a charity of which he is a patron, Niamh’s Next Step. He’s playing but I don’t think I’m quite ready for a full round yet. I’m loving taking lessons and I’m improving lots so hopefully I’ll be able to play around before the end of the summer.

Happy Friday!

Speak soon.

Love Una xxxx
