Putting yourself first is okay! Trust me!

My debut novel The Little Theatre on the Seafront is out now on Amazon and Kobo . 

Half term holidays are fast approaching and as much as I love this time of year of cuddling the kids snuggled under blankets and drinking ridiculous hot chocolates covered in whipped cream and marshmallows, there are times when life gives you an endless to-do list.

 

The school holidays might be a break for the kids but the chances are it isn’t for the mums, dads and carers out there. That’s why I don’t think there’s anything wrong with admitting and owning the fact that sometimes you have to put yourself first. Whether that’s sorting out a play date so you can have some time to yourself, or just prioritising a nice hot bath with a glass of wine and candles! We’re often programmed to feel guilty for taking time for ourselves when there’s always something else to do, but those precious minutes of peace and quiet can really help settle the mind and get you back on track to handle what life (and kids!) can throw at you!

 

Shameless plug time! A great way to unwind is reading, so why not grab my book The Little Theatre on the Seafront for a funny, chilled-out read. amzn.to/2NpUio9

The first thing you need to know about me is, I like gin. Lots and lots of gin.
I live in the South East of England in a lovely little town by the sea and spend my time working, running around after my kids, walking our King Charles Spaniel, Wotsit, and writing!

I love history and have a Master’s degree, but have also been lucky enough to work in various castles and museums over the years. I’ve yet to get one of them into a story though – I really must try harder!
