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 [...]
I have a new man in my life – Logan was born on 7th May at Chelsea & Westminster and we’re over the moon. My other two boys, hubby Renato and toddler Ethan, are thrilled to have another boy in the family. I’m feeling a little bit outnumbered, if we ever get a pet it [...]

This week I’m attempting to answer the question on everyone’s lips – why are we having such terrible weather and is our climate really changing? Thanks to @gaffa10 for suggesting it (albeit in stronger descriptive terms!).
