I’ve never been one to shy away from the limelight – I quite enjoy talking in public and I find it more exciting than stressful. I also have a bit of an internal battle going on where on one hand I am very pleased with things I achieve or get the chance to do and then on the other I am very disappointed in myself for not being more clever, witty, thinner, nicer, etc. Complicated, eh?
We were asked to appear on BBC Breakfast this week to talk about our experience of Scarlet Fever and I was very excited and a little regretful of all the biscuits and wine I eat and drink (and thus my dress size!). Joni and I went on a Big Adventure on the train and to Manchester. We had a great time.
Joni was a delight. She was perfectly behaved on the train, at the hotel and at the BBC studios. She was charming, hilarious and a healthy level of 3-Year-Old Mischievous. Oh and on watching it back I have realised that my voice is a lot more posh than I had originally thought. We also got to meet All Saints AND my lovely friend Rose whilst we were there – it was really lovely.
I had a bit of an epiphany on the way home: whilst I’m always a little bit proud of things I do it’s my children who will bring me the most joy. I have been beaming ear to ear today – so, so proud of Joni. This little person we created is a force destined to be far more powerful than the sum of her parts. What a poppet.
