"In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it, you'll be thegrandest lady in the Easter parade."

Sunday night. Last minute emails. Lesson planning. That dreaded 'back to school' feeling.

Easter is over.


Molly was a spoilt little bunny this year - and of course, mummy has to help demolish the mountain of eggs we still have. I'm nice like that.

We were even sent a fabulous Easter box from that gorgeous lot at Nick Jr - full of games to play, cake silicone cases, a chef hat & a Dora dvd.

But now, it is back to earth with a bang, and heavy one at that ;-)

Did you have a nice Easter? What did you get up to Dolly-rama's?

My day with Nick Jr!

So, a few weeks ago, I was kindly invited up to London to have a LIVE web chat with the utterly gorgeous Helena Dowling and scrummy mummy Becky Overton (writer of Arnie & Barnie's Bedtime Stories on Nick Jr).

I had arrived fairly calm and collected, and just excited to meet the lovely team, when a voice perked up -  "Holly, would you like to have a look at the set?", 'Sure" I said, you know like I do this thing all the time. One look at the cameras and lights, and BAM! 'hello' heart beating REALLY fast, and oh 'not seen you in a while' sweaty palms. The nerves had kicked in.

It wasn't so much the topic or the fact I was being filmed, more to the point it was going to be LIVE!
If you know me, you know that I am a bit of a klutz  sometimes I don't think before I speak, and a lot of the time I am quite clumsy. I had visions of Bridget Jones in her first live TV appearance where she got stuck down a fireman's pole (ooh matron).

But, once we got started, it was just such an amazing time. Becky Overton, is just the easiest person to talk to and instantly put me at ease and Helena is, of course, a pro.

You can catch the clip on the post below. I am far too critical of myself, so have watched it once and that is enough...

A huge thank you to Jessica Feldman, Sarah (lovely PR wonder woman) and Becky, the Arnie & Barnie producer who were all so so lovely.

Blimey, it's like I have won a bloody Oscar...

That's next year...
