NEVER GO THERE!!

Going into overdrive to get an agent. I've finished my kids picture book and I'm currently writing a young adults book. Figured it's best not to limit myself and be open to write as many different things as I can, just to see where my strength lies. It's funny to think that all I need is someone to sign me and then BAM I can get published. Come on agents!!!! Holla at me.
They say JK Rowling is the worlds RICHEST writer. She's almost worth $1 billion. I admit she has set the bar high but honestly, nothings better than a challenge.

I've seen some amazing talent for my mates in the last two weeks. Ebru performing at Yoyo's and mashed up the stage. Then I hear her on Kiss FM with her song 'Prisoner.' I screamed and Fergie ran out the room. Then Kloe and Jared's solo piece's at Breakout which were amazing. For some reason my address on my ticket said Hackney, London, Afghanistan. Clearly I won't be receiving any mail from that theatre. It's so great to see people's growth. Never felt more grateful for the talent that surrounds me. Fiona and Natalie were at Yoyo's. I haven't seen the twins in forever so it was good catching up. Fiona told me she reads my blogs and likes it! I never think about the fact that people are gonna like it!! That made me v happy, thanks Fi xxx

Got  my tattoo redone. Oh my - the pain. I was breathing like I was giving birth. It felt like someone was slowly slicing my hand with a knife and they just wouldn't stop.I got told off by the tattoo dude. Apparently a tattoo is not a souvenir. He just doesn't understand. I got my tat done in Falarakii, Greece. DO NOT EVER GO THERE! Greece, I think of Athens, Greek mythology, gorgeous food. None of that here. It was the worst holiday ever. My fault for wanting a lazy beach holiday when I hate beach holidays. I love to explore and learn the history cause come on what do I really need a tan for? I got an ear infection from my ears popping violently on the plane so I lived on soup for a week. We were in the ultra tourist section so no Greek food anywhere. Got stalked by a stray dog twice and then one chased Naomi around the beach. So when I got a henna tattoo done and the guy said, “Hey, why don't you get a real one?” I thought why not. It only cost like 20 euros. It was one of the rare great things that happened on that holiday, apart from smashing plates and doing Greek dancing in the octopus restaurant. So damn straight it was a souvenir. Obviously not a great one, when I have to get it re done 2 years later. It does look very pretty.

My kids are looking sooooo much better. The set is getting there but I couldn't believe it when one of the 12yr olds were insecure about wearing a shirt with leggings!! I mean what's to be insecure about?? She's a skinny little thing. There's still work to be done but there performing at the LSO on weds for 7pm so time is kind of up. I swear they do this on purpose to stress me out. Last time they performed there, their tech was rubbish. When we went back to practice it was rubbish. On stage. Absolutely amazing.

We fear my aunt and cousins are caught in the earthquake in Japan so please pray for their safety.

I know I've said this before but it bares repeating. Who the hell voted these Tories into power???? Next time people vote better or just vote period!!

'You want a bubble butt and you don't want to work hard?'

I know my weekly posts aren't exactly going to plan but I think you guys should allow me. I am doing better than once a month right?

The Author School Day was incredible! It's such a weird process because Helen and I are always stressed out and then the day runs smoothly. The speakers were fantastic! The authors were chatty and asked loads of questions. I finally got to meet Katherine Webber author of Wing Jones. She gave me such a great quote for my Emily book and is so sweet in person. We saw each other and was like 'Selfie!'  Honestly, I just love The Author School and now we are planning our London Book Fair one and tickets are already on sale. Now we are doing a different ticketing scheme from tickets selling from £50 all the way to £70, so if you book quick you can get some really cheap tickets but if you leave it to the last minute, you will grab an expensive one. So chuffed that Lit agent Clare Wallace will be back to do a full class and do one-to-ones!! Book

We really wanted to laugh but didn't want to bring too much Hackney and Peckham vibes

Merry Christmas!!!!!!!

I seriously can't believe we are here already. I remember last Christmas like it happened a few months ago. I have already changed my food mentality. Had pizza for breakfast and cake for lunch and I worked out all week for the privilege.

So this is my second to last post of the year. I know guys, sad times but I think my 2018 posts are going to be even better than this year. God willing great and hilarious things continue to happen that I can share with you all.

I had my mini's do a dance performance to O Holy Night for Christmas and I had one of the best ideas I've had all year! I wanted Shiloh, who is about 10 months, to be dressed as an angel and to be sitting in the middle, while the little ones dance around her. See her mum got my vision but some people (Anneliese) didn't and guess what? It worked perfectly! My mini's were super cute and then you had Shi sitting on this little white seat swinging her fat little legs with wings on. Result…

2017 - WE MADE IT!!

Well we made it to another year! Thank God! The amount of natural disasters, terror attacks, we really need to be thankful that we made it.
This has been an awesome year. I truly feel like 2017 set the foundations for my life. Existing things were brought up to another level and for 2018, it's just going to flourish. I have the best feeling about next year. I can't explain it but I know it's going to be one to remember (in a good way)
It's so funny because at the beginning of the year I said I wanted to be single and I have dated more guys this year than I ever have! A lot of frogs (no surprise) but I did meet a special American who has set the bar moving forward. I couldn't even go back to these waste boys even if I tried. So for 2018, ladies don't drop your crown especially for no frog.




Here's my highlights of this year
