He saw mine, he did. She saw his, she did. I saw theirs - I’ve done

So, Tom saw my blog and that inspired him to blog, then Carrie saw his blog and was inspired to write her blog again, and now I have seen their wonderful efforts I feel inspired/pressured into blogging once more. But what to blog about?

My life at the moment mainly evolves around entertaining Buzz (pulling silly faces and dancing like a plonker in the hope that he’ll find me funny and laugh), trying to be a wonderful wife in the kitchen as I cook up some Vegan deliciousness (I’m mostly vegetarian but will go Vegan as much as possible) and attempting to WRITE (not easy when I only have a few hours in the evening to really work – but by that point I’m shattered from the early start, being a mummy, and all round great wife ;-)).  So, with all that going on, what else do I have to talk about other than babies and food? Hmmmm… I’m sure I used to have thrilling chat before mummyhood. No…? Oh, okay. I’ve always been a bit of a bore.

In an attempt to make this here blog a little more interesting for you, I’m suggesting inboxing me with your questions/pondering thoughts and I’ll address some of them, or do a Frequently Asked Questions piece. How does that sound? It’s up to you to give me some direction. Yep, I’ve passed the pressure on to you!

Big love,

Gi.Xx

…the wheels are in motion! ;-) Xx

Hey Gi. I feel like saying you should make a Vlog. I reckon it will be amazing, because really just reading your stuff is awesome, to see you with the emotion of it all would be great! Thanks for being you. I love looking up to you. You and Tom are like my role models in life. <3

Aw, thank you. I did think about it before Buzz came along… maybe I’ll revisit the idea at some point! ;-) Xx

To love is to act.

Are you planning on raising Buzz as a vegetarian too or will you introduce him to meat and let it be his choice?

It’ll totally be his choice! ;-) Xx

Firstly, your books are wonderful as are you. I really look up to you. I just wanted to ask if you will ever do any book signings? Sayeh

I’d love to… although I’d be extremely worried that no one would turn up! Ha! Xx

I've been a vegetarian for 2 months now! It's great! I feel so much better for both ethical and health reasons:) do you think you'll last long?

Asked by
verovati

Yes, I do. I don’t feel like I need to go stuff meat into my face or like I’m missing anything. Just learning a new way of eating and living. It’s fun! Xx

Can you juggle?

Nope. I’m useless. It always surprises me when someone throws a ball in my direction and I manage to catch it. Ha! Xx

I've just spotted that You and Tom have became vegetarians. Has this been a recent decision and if so what made you make the change in your lives? Do you miss anything? I could never do it. I love my chicken, steak and bacon far too much.

Firstly, my favourite meal was always steak and chips so I totally understand why you feel it would be impossible to do. BUT it’s been a few weeks now and I don’t miss meat at all. 

I was juicing for a couple of weeks and watching different documentaries on food and where it all comes from. One film led to another until I stumbled upon Earthlings… From that point on I made a promise to myself that I’d steer clear of meat. So far it’s going well. I’m eating more vegetables than I ever have and I feel wonderful.

When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?

Asked by

I’ve always loved reading (so much so that I used to get in trouble for it when I was younger), but I always thought it was an unrealistic dream. Turns out I was wrong. I’m incredibly lucky to be able to sit around in my PJs every day, run off into my imagination, and then be able to call it work! Xx

I'm not sure if you'll get this or not-I'm really hoping you do. I just wanted to let you know that I've finally had a chance to read your book and I wanted to tell you that it is absolutely phenomenal. By far one of the best books I have ever read. You are a fantastic writer and, like I said, Billy and Me is fantastic! I just had one quick question and I was wondering if there was any advice that you give a young, amateur writer such as myself. Thank you again.

Hello! Thanks for your lovely message! My top tip would be to read as much as possible and START WRITING! Nothing can happen until you put pen to paper… or fingertips to keypad. ;-) Enjoy and write from the heart. Xx

Getting to spend everyday with my little dude… he’s awesome! Top tip - chill out and enjoy! Cleaning and washing can wait. Xx

I've literally just finished reading both your books and absolutely loved them -couldn't put them down! Just wondered if you had based Molly, from Billy and Me, on a real person? And also if you will be writing a third book? I really hope so!!! Xx

Hello! Aw, I’m thrilled you enjoyed them. Yes, Molly was loosely based on a very sweet and kind lady that I used to work with when I was younger. she really left a lasting impression on me. 

Yes… book three is coming. I’ve just got to write it! ;-)

To all the other dreamers out there, don’t ever stop or let the world’s negativity disenchant you or your spirit. If you surround yourself with love and the right people, anything is possible.
