IT’S NOT ABOUT BEDROOM ANTICS
There was a press story out last week about how I’d put a lock on my bedroom door to stop the kids interrupting me and Ryan having alone time. It made it sound like we’re at it like rabbits! I wish we bloody were!
The reason there’s a lock on the bedroom door is because the wind kept opening it and it was constantly banging. It was made out to sound like I locked the door so the kids can’t come in while we’re having sex. I might have said something in jest, but the way it was made to sound has made me feel mortified!
My auntie Angela has now been laid to rest. It was a lovely service for her – she had a beautiful send-off. It was obviously very different because of Covid restrictions. We couldn’t have a wake, so it’s not like we could all sit down afterwards and reminisce and talk about her.
I think when lockdown is over, we’re going to hire a venue and do a proper wake for her. I’m still in shock with it all, to be honest. I’ve been so busy, I don’t think I’ve been able to properly grieve. My mind has been so occupied, it’s all been a bit of a blur.

I’ve been staying up north since my auntie’s funeral as we’ve been busy house-hunting here. It’s been a bit of a nightmare, to be honest! We’ve seen loads that we like but it’s a stressful process. But I’m hopeful we’ll find our dream home.
The thought of going back down south actually makes me feel depressed. I’ve been there for 13 years now and I’m definitely ready to come back up north. My mum’s here, my family are here and my friends are here. It’s just me, the kids and Ryan down there. It’s been a long time coming.
UNITED IN GRIEF
I feel really sad about Prince Philip’s death. I feel so sorry for the Queen, losing her husband of so many years.
I also think it’s sad that Prince Harry wasn’t in the country when he died. I think he should have flown over sooner.
After losing my auntie Angela, it’s definitely brought me closer to all the family. I think death definitely does that. As a nation, I think we’re all really hoping that the royal family can come together.

It’s really sad news about Nikki Grahame’s passing. I didn’t know her personally, but I met her once. She was so full of life and so bubbly. My thoughts go out to her family and friends.
Her mum said that the gyms shutting had really affected her – and I can completely understand why. Lockdown has played a massive part in some people’s mental health, mine included. The sooner this all over, the better.
We all know the death toll is through the roof because of Covid itself, but we can’t forget about those who have also suffered because of the mental health side of it. It’s been tough for so many people and not everybody is able to fight it, unfortunately.
