I don't want to make this post look like a plug for my career, or an ad for my band. But can I just tell you, I am a performer at heart - and last Sunday's first gig back since giving birth was a blooming slice of heaven!
I was delighted to be making music again with my sensational guitarist, brother-in-law and good, good friend Cam. It was the Tidbinbilla Extravaganza and we thoroughly rocked the crowd, especially the kids on a perfect Sunday in the gorgeous surrounds to which the event was dedicated.
Oli waited for me during sets, and fed and cuddled with me during breaks - he is definitely a good stage baby - now road tested for his portability and willingness to be happily minded by his doting grandmother and aunties...
I tell you people it felt good to do what I do! And only seven weeks after giving birth, I felt kind of secretly proud, and clever! I realised that no matter my age, stage or the scale I do it on - I will always perform - it's part of why my heart beats, and my eyes glow...
And clearly for me, it has ever been so.
