Laugh. That can be over bedtime books, board games or the beach.
3. What is the thing you miss most about life pre-children?
A friend of mine told me she’d spent a whole Sunday in bed inhaling a book. I was so jealous I nearly pinched her.
4. What has been the biggest surprise for you about being a mother?
The bottomless basket of washing.
5. What does 'me time' look like for you?
A sneaked-in yoga class.
