Yesterday was a rather special day for this family as along with my husband Peter, our child Oliver, 4 and my friend Sharmin who was visiting from Amsterdam, I attended the world premiere of Paddington.
No don't get too excited-I won't be attending this year *weeps. You see being up the duff is not ideal for party going Cannes plus I have writing commitments to get on with (must stop procrastinating and writing this blog, instead) but Cannes is AMAZING.
Please don't judge me... As much as I love experimental European films and conceptual art (I do), I need to wind down watching mind numbing escapist crap sometimes. What? No judgement remember.
Just over a week ago, (yes it's taken me that long to write this)- I won an award! *Jumps in the air Rocky style at the memory. It was for the Square Mile 30 Under 30 London Talent Awards to be exact and I won my category: Media, Entertainment and the Arts.
In light of the awards' season: the Baftas and Oscars out there for the film industry, I started to ponder-where are the awards for all the amazing mothers out there-because you totally and utterly deserve it.
