It's always a joy to welcome back monthly columnist, registered dietitian, Laura Clark.
Those who follow this blog will remember that I wrote a piece on our proposed move to the outskirts of London or Windsor a few months ago, sharing that the family and I were set to relocate.
I was a multi-award winning screenwriter and director pre blogging and vlogging (winning awards at film festivals internationally, Ch 4 and more) and I'm now writing my first book Mumboss for Piatkus/Little Brown under the Hachette umbrella.
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.
I've been reflecting on the year that's just gone a lot over the Christmas break as it was a time where I totally kicked back, hung out with those I love without deadlines or school runs and it got me thinking about what I'd do differently this year. What I'd like to switch up in 2017.
So yesterday was a day- THE DAY-where dreams were made.
It was my birthday yesterday-whoop, whoop, whoop (insert all the cake, balloons and champagne emojis) and I'm now 36!!
In this interview I'm speaking to Giles Paley-Phillips, the author of 'THE FEARSOME BEASTIE' (Maverick Arts Publishing) which has now sold over 70,000 copies and won countless awards. This summer will see the release of a CG animated short film of 'The Fearsome Beastie'.
So FOMO means the 'fear of missing out' (FYI those who have no idea 'Hi Dad') with the online dictionary informing me it's, 'Anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening elsewhere, often aroused by posts seen on a social media website' (please tell me you also laughed out loud at 'aroused' and the use of 'website' after social media-yes I might need to grow up #natch).
Let me kick off by writing, I'm that girl who literally wants to be friends with everyone.
Welcome to Creative Lives: An Interview With...my new feature that will share the experiences of inspiring men and women leading creative lives.
