What couldn’t you wait to go back to after lockdown?
Get a coffee! To actually go out and get a coffee. I was really excited about that.
What words would you use to describe yourself?
Passionate, curious and very compassionate.
Is compassion important as a mother?
I’ve definitely become more compassionate since becoming a mum. From the minute I held my first baby I became so compassionate about the world. It just came naturally.
You have three children under six, what does motherhood mean to you?
For me, motherhood gives me so much purpose. The first time I ever held Saoirse who was my first it just gave me this huge powerful love that I’d never felt before. What was it like juggling home schooling, mothering and working?
What was it like juggling home schooling, mothering and working?
I did have a bit of an idea what it was like to work from home before lockdown, but this was another level. This was three kids constantly there and I had to home school at the same time. We just did half an hour of academia each day and then it was more about life skills like gardening and cooking.
I think the most important thing to remember is to not compare yourself to others. You can only do your best, and everybody has dealt with this in a very different way.
