Hope you’re all well. My little girl Aoife Belle has just been chatting away to me in her new Irish accent â€“ and it’s adorable! She picked it up while we were over in Ireland at New Year. It’s amazing how quickly young children can pick an accent up. She’s taken to calling me ‘Mammy’ rather than ‘Mummy’ now â€“ I think she must’ve heard me saying it to my mother. She tried saying ‘Granny’ a lot while we were over there but that comes out as ‘Danny’ at the moment which is really cute.
While we were in Ireland my TV show Una’s Dream Ticket was on. I got a real kick out of seeing kids live their dreams and I watched a few of them back. I was really happy with how my solo presenting went but the most satisfying part of it all was seeing the smiles on their faces when their dreams came true.
Aoife saw me on the screen a couple of times but it was difficult to tear her away from her new presents â€“ she couldn’t be separated from her new colouring book for days! She was so spoilt this Christmas â€“ especially by my sister who bought her a huge hamper of presents. Aoife woke up to find that Father Christmas (or Santy as we call him in Ireland) had delivered her presents at the end of her cot â€“ she was beside herself with excitement!
