So, I put this in the start of the video. But this isn’t one of those brilliant mother and daughter duets. So don’t get excited! When I first got my hearing aids, I wondered a lot whether what I used to hear was actually ‘right’. My hearing loss is mild-to-moderate and that’s actually more different than what I realised.
I used to sing when I was younger, and I used to do shows and competitions. I miss it. It seems to be one of those old hobbies I left behind. Now, when I sing, my hearing aids go all sorts of crazy as everything is too loud and I can’t really hear it properly. And part of me wanted to know if, years down the line, with two kids, if I could still sing and what I actually sounded like. I decided to film myself singing without my hearing aids in, with a view to watching it back with them in. I completely forget about it and found the footage tonight and couldn’t stop laughing. I never intended to share this footage, hence why Daisy (my 14 month-old) is in it with me and I look a bit shabby. But I couldn’t not share it now I’ve watched it back. It made me smile (a lot!) and I hope it makes you smile too!
Regardless of what I sound like, I don’t care, the real star here is her! xx

WHO AM I?
I’m 28, love carbs, rubbish 90’s music, Prosecco and baths without finding a bath toy stuck under my bum.
I have a little boy called Bill (born June 2012) and a little girl called Daisy (born April 2016).
I am, very recently, a full-time vlogger and blogger (the stuff dreams are made of), but I am also a trained journalist, former magazine editor, and content lead.
I’m also part of Channel Mum – which is really worth checking out if you’re a mama like me and want to find videos to make you laugh, cry, nod, or get advice. https://www.youtube.com/user/channelmum
I was a single mum, just me and Bill. But then I had a bit of a fairytale moment when I met Mark (he’s a bit lovely) and things are better than I could have hoped for now. Daisy was born with Stickler Syndrome, and a cleft palate like me. Her start has been rocky but she’ll be fine. She’s got a family who adore her after all.
I know that all mums are different in their own way, but I hope you enjoy seeing snippets of my life, all the same.
