Feelings, Hormones and Terrorism

(0) Comments | Posted 15 June 2016 | (22:51)

I have often moaned about the topics covered in ante-natal classes. We talked a lot about 'feelings' during pregnancy. What would have been really useful is how to raise your corpse from your bed, having had three hours sleep in four days. I would have liked to have learned how...

Busy Week for Mum Skills

(0) Comments | Posted 12 May 2016 | (00:00)

It's been a busy week and it's only Tuesday. My week really starts on a Saturday when all the kids are off school and nursery. Then they have to be driven to football training and swimming lessons. I have my favoured short cuts and fast routes and after 14 years...

Embrace the Shame

(3) Comments | Posted 23 March 2015 | (23:00)

The older I get the more complex my reactions are to certain situations. In my 20's everything was black and white. Of course if I said the wrong thing whilst I was drunk, I agonised about not being liked or upsetting people. I worried about being over-weight, although not to...

No Massacre Valentines

(0) Comments | Posted 19 February 2014 | (23:00)

One Valentine's night my husband and I did what couples do on Valentine's Day and went out for dinner. The food was good and the company was excellent however we spent most of the evening laughing our legs off at couples trying not to bicker and find things to say...

Reluctant Feminist

(83) Comments | Posted 19 June 2013 | (00:00)

A few years ago I would rather have admitted to being a Justin Bieber fan than a feminist. To me the term "feminist" was someone who banged on about "causes" and "campaigns" and looked a lot more like Germaine Greer than Angelina Jolie. They were feminists because they had to...

Let's Start With Us Shall We?

(4) Comments | Posted 4 December 2012 | (23:00)

Today I was sent another email asking to help "stamp out bullying". I've had a few of these and they are all from valid worthy causes. Bullying is a horrible thing to happen to anyone. Most of us have experienced some kind of bullying. At school I had a few...

Poison Chalice

The first time we met Chantelle Houghton, it was 2004. She entered the Celebrity Big Brother House as a non-celebrity. By 2004 Big Brother was in full swing. Initially no-one knew how the public was going to react to Big Brother. It was a warped popularity contest and as the...

Fashion Crisis

(0) Comments | Posted 24 September 2012 | (00:00)

One of the great things about my job as a stand-up is that it means I can be anywhere doing anything. I love this unpredictability. I have no definite routine and this suits me very well. I can be at a comedy club one day, hosting a fashion show the...

I have to say I was one of the people who thought the Olympics would be a pain in the arse. As a Londoner I initially thought it might be ok, so I applied for tickets. As my mates and I worried about how we'd pay for the hundreds of...

Black Beauty

(3) Comments | Posted 13 June 2012 | (00:00)

The past few months I have been thinking a lot about how women view themselves. In April, Samantha Brick wrote an article about what a terrible trial it was for her to be beautiful. She became the subject of a Twitter storm with people saying the most awful things about...

Healthy Happy Mum

(2) Comments | Posted 11 April 2012 | (00:00)

In New York a study has been published that says working mothers are healthier than stay-at-home mums. Apparently they are less depressed and report a better general overall health than mothers who stay at home full-time.

I don't know the best way to do things. I muddle through and try...

Don't Tell the Kids...

(4) Comments | Posted 12 March 2012 | (23:00)

I've not blogged for a while. I've been caught up in the whirlwind stages of a newborn whilst working and trying to make sure the other two don't feel marginalised because a baby has turned up.

I get a lot from my children. It is really hard work but it's...

Faking It

(0) Comments | Posted 12 January 2012 | (11:49)

You don't have to be the best mother or girlfriend or homemaker. You just have to look like you are. I was at a friend's house when my first-born was around three months old and he was staring at me.

"What is it?" I asked.

"I'm just trying to...

To Be a Better Woman

(2) Comments | Posted 13 December 2011 | (23:00)

For a start, I don't make New Year's resolutions. Why would I set myself up for a failure so early in the year? No chance. That said, I've had an interesting month. A month that's made me stop and think a bit. I generally I feel I have to get...

Techno Heaven or Hell?

(0) Comments | Posted 14 November 2011 | (22:00)

I love my iPhone. I really do. I make full use of all the apps. I am a particularly big fan of the Tube Exits one which tells me which carriage to get on so that I can disembark right by the exit - I know! It's amazing! I really...

Celebrity Let -Down

(3) Comments | Posted 8 November 2011 | (22:00)

Ok. I've had enough. I'm sure I can't be the only one who has had enough but I've cracked. I can't be the only one who is irritated by it but I really don't know what to do about it.

When I was growing up, the celebrities I looked up...

To C or not to C

(8) Comments | Posted 1 November 2011 | (23:00)

This week the NHS has decided that if you want a C-Section you can have one. There have been a variety of responses to this. The first article I came across on the internet was in the Daily Mail - I know I should know better but I got sucked...

The Whirlwind

(2) Comments | Posted 17 October 2011 | (00:00)

First of all let me apologise. It has been some time since I last blogged but I have been the victim of a delicious whirlwind. Everyone in my family has. On the 27th September - after a tricky birth - my youngest son was born.

The first week was spent...

What Now?

(2) Comments | Posted 16 September 2011 | (17:00)

In ten days we will have a new addition to the family. We know exactly when he is coming - I have to have a C-section after an emergency one and another so I'm locked into this one. Most mothers who have C-sections feel a little guilty, as we're not...

Post-Edinburgh Slum Down

(1) Comments | Posted 7 September 2011 | (00:00)

The Edinburgh Festival is once again over. This is an exhausting month for comics as we gig every night and perform for an hour a night - rather than our normal 15-20 minutes - slackers that we are. This year I decided to do the whole thing eight months pregnant...
