A couple of weeks ago saw me 'train it' from Leeds to London to meet up with a fabulous group of blogging friends for lunch and a certain multi-award winning chart-topping singer/MC and TV judge, Alesha Dixon (standard ;) )!
Late last year I shared that my family and I were filming something top secret for telly and now, finally, all can now be revealed.
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.
Bonjour all you brilliant bloggers and welcome to this week's Brilliant Blog Posts.

I'm super excited to share a brand new feature with you all as I join forces with the formidable TV Psychologist Emma Kenny in a bid to help offer guidance, support and solutions to your problems, right here on my blog Honest Mum.

Last week saw a childhood dream come true when I presented three short features for ITV's breakfast show 'Good Morning Britain', with my pieces broadcast last Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
It's so easy in life to be constantly chasing dreams, and believe me, I'm a big believer in dreaming big, working hard, and simply going for 'it' whatever 'it' might be, but recently I've had a little shift in thinking...
I'm a pro-blogger yes, but also an award winning filmmaker and TV director, having made TV drama, documentary, short films, commercials and music videos in my time (you can see my website here).
The National Media Museum, situated in the heart of Bradford, UNESCO City of Film, frequented often as child, truly contributed to me becoming a filmmaker.
