#Dadboss Interview with TV Chef Dean Edwards.
So half term was part 'chill out' time and part 'let's start prepping for our move down south'. We won't move until the summer and whilst I lived in London for 11 years before relocating back when Oliver was 1, it feels like quite a big move as we have two kids now.
I love, love, love an LBD (as those who follow me and my LBD-obsessed ways here, already know), but I do like to cheat on my go-to black with it's classic sister from another mister: red, adoring the whole spectrum from scarlet to ruby, peach, crimson russet and even oxblood and maroon.
A weird post to write I hear you cry (does anyone cry anymore or shriek for that matter or do we now just insert emoticons and move on with our lives?!)- I digress, for those who don't know (where've you been people)-I just won the double at the BritMums in Brilliance Awards and am literally walking on air...
Tuesday was one of my life highlights. I was honoured to be asked to speak at Mosaic, a charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2007.
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
I've always been a bit of a girl's girl-I'm still friends with many of my oldest girlfriends from school, sixth form and university then from working in the film industry; I love how empowering good female friends can be! I'd be lost without them!
It's what we'd been gearing up for all summer...trial days at the end of last term were enjoyed (mostly making play dough cookies and playing in the sand pit), teachers had visited us at home (manic hoovering followed by a friendly chat with us both) and then finally, FINALLY Oliver was embarking on the biggest milestone of his little life yesterday-starting school!
My darling little man is 4 today ( I know what you're thinking/! I look too young right?! Why thank you) Ha! But seriously now 4? 4 feels insanely grown up for a tiny little baby I had in arms, well, 4 short years ago.
