5 Weather

The weather had been glorious lately – the best summer since 2006 and no signs of it stopping just yet! We weather presenters get a lot of grief over bad weather so it makes a lovely change to get the credit for good weather. Although I do have to reveal a secret – we don’t control the weather, only forecast it…

When Logan was born I decided not to rush back to work, but when Channel 5 got in touch and asked if I could cover one shift, I thought why not? Such is the life of a freelancer that you tend to take work when it’s offered, plus I felt I could handle one shift. Somehow it turned into a whole week of covering the weather broadcasts on Ch5, and while part of me was really excited about a new challenge, the other part of me was freaking out about expressing enough milk for 10-week-old Logan, and what on earth to wear (ie what could I squeeze the post-baby body into)?!

Thankfully my husband has been great at looking after baby Logan this week while I was at work, and it has been extra cute watching my toddler Ethan’s face when he saw Mummy do the weather on TV. He wasn’t happy the first day I left for work before he had gone to nursery and even asked me afterwards where I had been. But by the end of the week he wasn’t bothered and the same went for seeing me on TV, he wasted no time in telling me he’d rather watch the Octonauts…
