Presenting a Piece For Sky News’ ‘Morning Stories’

So Tuesday was a rather exciting day! Thanks to John at Dad Blog UK's recommendation, I was invited to Sky TV to film an edited version of my post on the Imposter Syndrome for 'Morning Stories' a series on Sky News where academics, bloggers and media experts share their opinions on all manner of topics from politics to well-being and beyond.

A Weekend Away in Bath Without the Bambinos

As all you parents will know, it's rare to get 'couple time' when kids come along, and the last time Peter and I got a night away together was way back in June. A whole season ago then

Our Weekend in Pictures

Oh the wonderful weekend, where did it go? It feels so long ago now and it's only Tuesday, and I'm missing running through russet fields at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and breathing in that crisp autumnal air, squinting at sunlight filtering through the trees.

‘Get Santa’ Film Premiere

So we'd not attended a film premiere for a while (hard life huh) and then two come along at once! I know!!! We attended the glittering world premiere of Paddington last week at the Odeon Leicester Square and before even hitting the publish button on the post about it, I'd received an invite for the Get Santa premiere, the following Sunday!

Summer Days

Isn't summer time simply the best (when they kids aren't making us feel like we're going slowly insane that is)- so far we've had some gorgeous Vitamin D fuelled days in the garden and out and about in glorious Yorkshire to make us happy. Why not get yourself a lovely glass or jug (ha) of Pimms and enjoy some of my favourite photos taken so far this summer-carefree, fun days pf the kids enjoying the rays:

Happy Mother’s Day From Us

When photographer Kirsty Mattsson kindly offered me a family shoot, we'd discussed a Mother's Day theme to start ( it also evolved into head shots and a style shoot too) but the most important, most utterly enjoyable part of the day was with my family: my husband Peter and our sons Oliver (4) and Alexander (18 months)-a Mother's Day shoot I'll always cherish.

Baby in a Basket

I've just found these brilliantly cute pictures taken at Christmas and wanted to show you them to share the sweetness this Friday.

Far Away Family…

I often think of my far away family and more so now the new baby is nearly here. As a British born Greek Cypriot, my beloved 95 year old Grandma (Yiayia) lives in Cyprus with the majority of my father's family and my husband is an English South African whose relatives live in Port Elizabeth.
