How sad. An eclipse is a special thing; it's a moment to celebrate the great celestial coincidence that the sun is exactly 400 times the size of the moon and it's 400 times further away, creating the necessary conditions for the great blazing light to be eclipsed by a candle.

Let's be honest, when it comes to the issue of kids at your wedding (with the exception of your own...at a push), every bride dreads the possibility that they may have to endure screams throughout the all-important ceremony, or food fights during the speeches.

There was no traffic, there were no men with large nets and child catcher wagons, in fact, looking around me the worst hazard I could identify was the frightening amount of sugar that was on sale.

Somewhere along the way of growing up, we lose that special talent of not taking things personally and we get so serious about any little offence. We don't let other people off the hook with forgiveness easily, and we harbour ill feelings for a long, often unhealthy, amount of time.

This is something I have heard many times before. When people hear I have two girls they say something along the lines of "Oh, would you like to try for a boy?" or "Thats a shame, it would have been nice to have one of each." I have no idea why people say this.

The Best Mum in the World - Really?

You would think I had asked them to tell the person next to them how often they have sex. Speaking up about your parenting ability is just not something parents find easy. Had I asked them to talk about what they get wrong as a parent, they would never shut up.

As a receptionist by day and a comedian by night, it's always good to get a story from the office that people can relate to. I'm currently in the middle of writing my second solo hour show and I've been putting together some of my most memorable day jobs over the last couple of years.

It's official. I have become a nag. Just like my mother before me, and probably hers before that, and it goes on and on and on to when Eve had a baby in the Garden of Eden, and became a nag. Because that's what you do when you become a mum.

Replace the nice restaurant, well-behaved children and hot food, with a soft play centre, very noisy children and chicken in a basket, and you are a lot closer to reality. The truth is you are only going to have a happy mothers day if the kids are happy. And that means doing what they love.

It worries me that boys are told that showing emotion is a weakness. And don't get me started on their notion of invincibility and willingness to jump off sheer cliff faces just for the hell of it. So, with all of this in mind, I've done a lot of thinking about how I can raise my boys to be good men.

The stuff that memories are made of: Arriving at Delhi Airport and making our way to the railway station was like being launched into a real-life version of Mario Karts - our taxi lurched through the city amid a maelstrom of fumes and horn blasts, black and yellow tuk-tuks swarming around us like angry bees.

At work you need to work. Nobody is interested in whether your baby can eat a whole carrot or not. Why would they be? It's bloody boring! And they're normal -working people who have deadlines, clients to please, travel to book, emails to send.
