The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 068 – When I’m 83
In the latest episode I apologise for the break between podcasts due to my children being unwell.

I discuss trying to explain death to my children when I struggle with the concept myself.
The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 067 – Apologies To My Second Born
Today I make apologies to my second born daughter. My new baby who isn’t my only priority like my first born was, is left to cry whilst I look after my other children, and will never experience the intensely close bond of living alone with just me.
The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 064 – Sex Beyond Biology
Tonight I talk about schools only teaching the technical facts about sex leaves the humanity and fun of sex education being left to pornography. I discuss that girls are being expected to do things far more extreme than they are comfortable with, and boys don’t learn how to make sex pleasurable for both partners.
In tonight’s episode I talk about how important it is that we talk about it when we’re finding it hard. How sharing your fears and vulnerabilities will ensure we don’t feel alone and can welcome the help we need from others around us, and how we weren’t supposed to go through the stress and worry of child rearing alone.
The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 059 – I’m Not A Disappointment

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 050 – Natural Mother
Tonight I talk about how I’m not someone who’s natural at parenting and I’m not someone who has always felt at home around children. I discuss the impact it has on me to be raising children when it doesn’t always feel like something I’m good at.
