I hardly slept at all last night. My youngest is once again unsettled at night and I had a lot on my mind.
I had done an interview for our local radio station, Hallam FM, on the importance of outdoor play for children. I loved the experience and it was a real privilege to be asked. I was simply nervous on my voice appearing on radio. What would the clip sound like that they would use? What if I said something controversial? What if I came across like an idiot? I guess just normal thoughts.
I had nothing to worry about, although it was rather strange hearing yourself on the radio. It was also strange, as I am a regular listener to Hallam FM having the news readers, who you become familiar with, mention your name. I would love to do it again.
My eldest daughter had a similar stars in the eyes moment when she came home from nursery. She saw cake. She saw a Victoria ring cake. The icing and cherry on top prompted her to sing 5 current buns. She wanted cake but she knew that she had to eat her dinner first. Cake is a treat and a special treat.
After dinner the girls really did enjoy their cake
This day I love stars in the eyes.
