Green Parent june july 2018.jpg

The June/ July edition of The Green Parent magazine includes the latest in my series of interviews with parenting authors and experts.

This time I had the enormous privilege of interviewing one of my heroes, the one and only Gretchen Rubin!

We talked about ways to be increase a family’s happiness levels, how to understand your children and yourself and why getting more sleep can make life much easier.

I really had to remember that I was doing an interview and not just having a chat with someone that I have been a fan of for years. Fortunately Gretchen was just as delightful and interesting as I expected her to be – and I just about managed to contain my excitement…

I feel so fortunate to be in a position to get to speak to people I admire, and never take it for granted – even if does sometimes make for a more difficult interview!!

I recently had the great pleasure of writing about one of my specialist subjects – my home county of Staffordshire!

“Welcome to Staffordshire” is published by Kingfisher Visitor Guides and can be found in leading hotels across the county. I was excited to find one in my room during a recent stay at Swinfen Hall Hotel (yes, I did tell them that I’d written it when we checked out, and no, I didn’t sign it!).

It’s an absolutely beautiful guide with gorgeous photography and I’m so proud to have been involved in it. It covers everything from days out to nightlife, history to shopping, eating out to sport, and much more in between.

Have a look at it on the Kingfisher website (link).
