For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a love/hate relationship with my body. In my late teens, and my early 20’s, I treated my body with such distain. I was embarrassed I had curves. I hated my “chunky” thighs and “big bottom”, always enhanced by my smaller waist. When I looked down at my […]
I am quite an open book in real life. I’ve spoken to lots of friends and women I’ve met over the years about my struggles with motherhood, but one thing I’ve not really touched on publicly until now, was my intense periods of heightened anxiety following my eldest daughter Sailor’s birth. And it’s not because […]
I get a lot of requests from charities and organisations and I try my darnedest to always help out where I can, but it’s not always possible to be everywhere and to help everyone every time. It plagues me sometimes but I’m dealing with it. Late last year my hubby and I were discussing helping […]
I can’t quite believe that this time last year I nervously launched this website. This blog. This collation of stories from my incredibly chaotic life. As it’s been one full-on year, and I think it would be remiss of me to not acknowledge it! Looking back now, I’m actually kind of proud that I forged […]
So something absolutely monumental happened this week! We got INTERNET at home! I can’t believe nearly four years of struggling with phone data, constant (patchy) calls to our service provider to try to get something hooked up, were all put to rest this week, and for that I just want to thank the brilliant team at Peak Connect. I cannot recommend this […]
I love my kids to death. Like, literally I love them more than I can explain. I could smother them with so many kisses heart explode kind of love. BUT after a huge year for this little household I also needed a holiday. A holiday with 2-year-old Scout, whom I adore, don’t get me wrong, did not sound like […]
I have been pretty busy lately with my third baby. No, I haven’t given birth again! It’s not a child as such but more of a dream or a vision that I’ve tried to create to fruition – Mummy Time TV. You may have heard me talk about it a bit lately and if you’ve […]
When I was asked to be an Ambassador for Jeans for Genes Day this year, I jumped at the chance. I’ve been an annual supporter of this wonderful cause for, um, nearly twenty years now?!
Comparison is the thief of joy! There’s no truer a sentence than that one right there. I know this. I practice loads of gratitude and always try to talk myself around and give myself a little face slap if I find myself trying to size up something someone else has that I don’t. But, I’m human and the above […]
When I was younger I thought confidence was something you could fake. I thought that if you really just acted confident, that you were confident. You could succeed in most scenarios purely by acting. I lived out my late teens and my twenties with this kind of false bravado. Throwing myself into situations with little […]
Chezzi as she calls herself, is not regal per say, but she is always courteous and best of all, she quite loves Corgis, so we are reasonably fond of her
The Queen – Madame Tussards
Chezzi knows nothing about football but by gosh she can tackle hard! Read her stuff please. Get her off my back
Greg – NFL wannabe
I’ve never trained anyone quite like her. She makes lots of odd sounds and pulls strange faces when working hard. I have to push her though as she prefers to chat. Um, she tried really hard. She’s super enthusiastic and not scared to sweat buckets! I love that about her. She brightens up my day with her mad life stories!
Bev – The Personal Trainer
Scout – Daughter (18mths)
Cheryl was always dramatic. At 4, she told us she wanted to be like Miss Piggy & work in TV! She never drew breath but was always a sweet child. Wild but very sweet.
Peter & Shelley Rogers – The Parents
Butterflies are always following me, everywhere I go.
Mariah Carey – International Singing Superstar
Chezzi thinks she’s hilarious but in fact, she laughs at her own jokes and often loses it before even getting to the punchline. I’m much funnier. She gets a lot of her material from me.
Lisa (Moons) Mooney – The Best Friend
A gifted storyteller with self-deprecating wit; tales of Chez’s day-to-day life need no exaggeration. If it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen to Chez! Over a decade of friendship, she has never ceased to amaze me with her strength, courage – and hilarity! I’m so glad her humour and wisdom has been given a platform to be shared with the world. Bookmark this blog!
Kate Fox- Producer, Writer, Avid Exfoliator
She is my wife and I’m scared of her, because she’s tougher than me therefore I can only say nice things about her! She IS unique and funny, so read her stuff. Please!
Grant Denyer – Husband
Mummy is a good cookerer. She’s pretty nice to me most of the time and she reads me books. I love her because she gives me nice food but she can sometimes be a bit rough when brushing my hair.
Sailor – Daughter Aged 5
