And now for something a little bit different…

Hello and a wonderfully happy new year to you and yours! Here at Wardrobe Towers life has been shifting and changing and expanding with the arrival of my beautiful baby girl in July 2017. I’ve been on an extended period of maternity leave and becoming a mum has changed me in more ways than I can articulate: I am kinder, more present, more open and loving and much, much more emotional. That Cadbury’s advert with the girl buying Dairy Milk with her toys?! It has me WEEPING! When I was pregnant I honestly thought I’d be back at work 9 months after Erin’s birth. Nine months on from her birth I was fully consumed with being a mum – my business wasn’t even in the back of my mind, it had wondered out of my mind as Erin was all consuming. At 12 months I still wasn’t emotionally or mentally ready to pick up my styling suitcase and start fixing wardrobes again. This shocked and surprised me. I had anxiety attacks about being physically far away from Erin – what happened if I was in London and something happened? It would be 4 hours before I could get home. Other questions popped up – how could I do evening talks if Rich wasn’t home from work until 7pm and the talk started at 7.30pm? I sat down and thought long and hard about The Wardrobe Angel and asked myself what I loved about my business and what I was happy to give up. The list was long and surprising; becoming a mum had shifted my focus and my energy....
