The changes which have made life better.
Our big move to Windsor.
We all lead busy lives, right? From dawn to dusk, the whole Broadbent family are busy bees, working hard and playing even harder ;)! My sons, Oliver, 7, and Xander, 4, zip between school...
Welcome to the latest installment of Who's The Daddy, a feature which shines the spotlight on the most talented Daddy bloggers, worldwide. It's an honour to welcome the talented Grant Robson of Looking For The Postman with his guest post: Seven Steps To Being Creative When You’re A Tired Parent Who Just Wants to Crash Out.
How sisterly are you. Really? Do you share those 'Be Kind & Be Brave' Pinterest posts then forget to practice what you preach? I wanted to share my sister code with you so you can 'check yourself before you wreck yourself'- and potentially your relationships.
Recently, I've noticed a fair few people remark on how confident I am, or at least appear to be (it was mentioned several times at Blog Camp where I spoke recently, with many asking me how they could become more confident when it comes to going on camera or making their blog their business and I receive a lot of emails on the subject too.
OK so let me explain, ever since I was a teenager, or a tween even (isn't that word odd?!)-when I was a tween and that term hadn't been invented (thankfully), I realised I had a bit of a lovely bond with kids, I connected with children and adored playing with them. I did play with dolls pretty late so I suppose they were an extension of that!
Kids have honestly made me more creative. That's a fact. I was of course creative before kids working as a screenwriter, director and magazine editor...you get the picture. I was born creative, baby. Hear me out though, those kids took my creativity to another level. Throughout history (and I've found throughout my life so far too), creativity arises and thrives within limitations, be it time, budget, tools/access, they exist and are are actually vital in making creativity happen.
