My Belfast adventure with Cole

Sorry for the delay with this week’s blog. I came down with an awful virus that totally wiped me out over the last few days. It started when I got back on Friday from a week working away and I’m only just starting to feel human again! Thankfully Justin was around but it’s so awful being ill when you have kids and they want to see you. I’d been so looking forward to spending time with Bobby as I’d been away and couldn’t believe I was sick. I also missed my brother, Adam’s girlfriend’s 30th birthday party which was rubbish as I had been looking forward to it. I don’t get ill that often but when I do I certainly appreciate my health!

So last week I was away in Belfast filming a new acting project that I’m involved in. All will be revealed soon, I promise! I’ve really loved acting again after such a long break and it’s been fun getting back to work for a few days as it my first proper job since Cole was born. I have to say learning lines and having a baby brain is not a great combination though, I usually find it so easy but I had to really focus this time. I took Cole with me and my mum came along to look after him. He loved the time with his Nanny and she did too. She’s so amazing with babies and they had lots of little adventures in Belfast, shopping and sight seeing while I was working. He was an absolute star when we were travelling again too, he really is such a happy boy, he doesn’t stop smiling. It was lovely to get home and see Bob’s and Justin as I was away for four days and that’s the longest time I ever spent away from Bobby. He was absolutely fine and loved being with his Dad doing boys’ stuff. I found face timing lots really helped when I was away as you feel like you’re not missing out and you get to see how well he’s doing. I don’t know what parents did before face time.

Bobby is really growing up fast. He’s such a character too and doesn’t miss a thing. He’s just starting to notice that I’m on TV sometimes and the other day I came on CBeebies telling a bedtime story and I could see he was a little confused. Later than day he sat on a chair and starting doing an impression of me saying “Hi my name’s Kimberley this is a story about….” it cracked me up. He’s only two and he’s already taking the mick out of his mum! He’s also a typical boy and loves nothing more than finding sticks and anything he can use as a pretend weapon at the moment. This means regular visits to the woods in search of his new favourite stick and means I’m constantly finding random sticks around my house!

I finally watched the final episode of The Line Of Duty, I’ve not had a chance to watch it as it went out on TV but I made the time for it as Thandie Newton was so incredible in it. She was the star of the show for me. Watching the series has got me back into my box sets.

There’s nothing I love more than being really into something so I have something to watch every night. I loved Shooter with Ryan Phillippe and now I’m into Designated Survivor with Kiefer Sutherland. It’s actually nice to have an evening again with Justin as I feel like it’s only the past few weeks that Cole has started going down really well at seven pm and I haven’t had to run up and down the stairs all night. I don’t mind though cos in my head they’re all phases but it’s good to be through that stage now and have a bit of time to chill in the evening.

Seeing my old Strictly partner Pasha Kovalev

I attended the Good Morning Britain Health Star awards last week at the Rosewood hotel in London to present an award. It was a celebration of the the incredible health stars that work in our NHS who received awards for going that extra mile. I presented an award to Rosie who was being recognised for her support towards patients with respiratory problems in their final hours. It was such a fantastic thing to be a part of and it really made me realise how lucky I am to have not experienced any serious health problems in my life so far and how lucky we are to have people like this to look after us when we do. It was so lovely to see some of these people being recognised.

A few days ago I went to the theatre to see my old Strictly Come Dancing partner Pasha Kovalev perform on his tour “Dance The Night Away”. It was great to catch up and always amazing to see him dancing again. It really makes me realise how much I miss dancing, I really loved my time on Strictly. The show is about the journey he and his dance partner Anya Garnis have been on and their dancing life together. They started dancing together as children in Russia then moved to America and then Strictly brought them both to England. It’s amazing to think they’ve been dancing together for all these years and it really shows. It was a really fun show and it was a treat to see them dancing together again.

I’ve been trying the new Kit & Kin baby products Emma Bunton has launched on my boys and I’m loving them! All the products are made from natural ingredients, are eco-friendly and smell gorgeous! I’m generally not too precious about the products I use on myself but I’m always very careful about what I use on my children so these are a great find. They’re really affordable too so I’d definitely recommend them!

Easter fun times with Bobby and Cole

Cole is doing great, he’s so much more responsive and engaged now which makes life a lot easier. He likes attention so as long as someone’s talking to him he’s happy! He’s incredibly smiley and giggles a lot now, I love it. On the down side the four month sleep regression is in full swing so we’re not getting as much sleep these days. I figure it will pass and as much as sleep deprivation is tough I keep reminding myself how quickly this stage passes and I just wanna enjoy him while he’s still so tiny, so I don’t mind the night time cuddles just wish they were a bit less frequent!

Easter has been fun this year and Bobby has definitely enjoyed receiving far too many chocolate eggs! I had to make my first Easter bonnet for Bobby to take in to nursery which was fun. I had no idea what an Easter bonnet was supposed to look like so we just stuck as many Easter related things on there we could find! We put some flowers, feathers and little chickens on there. Bobs enjoyed sticking things on there which was fun. He’s also just getting into playing dress up which is a new thing for him. He’s got a superhero outfit with his name on which he loves along with his Gruffalo outfit. He’s going through a real phase of watching fairy stories and loving playing the Big Bad Wolf in The Three Little Pigs so I definitely need to find a Wolf outfit next. I seem to spend most of my time these days playing the parts of the little pigs!

We had a family roast on Easter Sunday with my mum and my sisters and my nephews. I hosted for a change as it’s usually my older sister Sally that hosts our family gatherings cos her and her husband Joe love cooking. There were six adults including my mum and little sister Amy and myself and Sally’s five boys. We had a leg of slow cooked lamb with roasties, veg and cauliflower cheese, it was so good! I did a jam roly poly for pudding which is always one of my faves! I used the Hairy Bikers recipe because I think they do puddings really well and always keep things really simple which is what you need when you’re cooking with babies and toddlers around. It’s actually the first proper roast I’ve made since Cole was born and he is now 4 months old! It has just felt overwhelming up to now but I guess things are getting easier because I managed it and it was really nice to have everyone over for Easter.

We did an Easter egg hunt for Bobby and his cousins, they loved it! I don’t think Bobby could believe that there was an actual day dedicated to eating chocolate so he was in his absolute element! My mum made Easter crowns with them too and they played a “pin the tale on the bunny” game. I think when I was young I was just happy to get an Easter egg in the morning, we never did anything like that but I have to say it was so lovely to watch them all playing and having such a good time.

Sarah explores her ‘light and dark’ side on songs with Jethro Sheeran

Sarah Harding has written six songs with Jethro Sheeran that reflect the “light and dark” moments of her life.

The 35-year-old singer – who recently starred in the touring production of ‘Ghost: The Musical’ – has been working on new solo material to reflect her transition from being a young pop in chart-topping group Girls Aloud to the woman she is today.

And Sarah has been in the studio with rumoured romantic interest Jethro – the cousin of Ed Sheeran who is known in the music industry as ‘Alonestar’ – and the pair have created several tracks together for her potential LP and he has been very impressed with her talents in the studio.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Jethro, 31, spilled: “Yeah me and Sarah have written three songs together. It’s about being the underdog. The passion she has for music, the situation she’s been in and just the darkness. This Isoface Light I call it – an equal amount of light and dark and we both kind of seem to do [experience] that. A lighthouse, as the ship [approaches] it has an equal amount of light and dark, so it’s called an Isophase Light. So that’s kind of the whole thing, it’s three tracks, where we’ve actually done six but three we want to work on. Three were dark and three were light.”

Girls Aloud took a break in 2009 with each of the five members – Sarah, Cheryl, Nadine Coyle, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts – choosing to use the hiatus to explore solo ventures.

Sarah kick-started her acting career, appearing in ‘Bad Day’, BBC film ‘Freefall, Run for Your Wife’ and ‘St. Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold’ for which she wrote three solo songs to the film’s soundtrack.

In 2011, she checked in to rehab to be treated for depression and alcohol and prescription drug abuse before reuniting with Girls Aloud in 2012 to celebrate their tenth anniversary together before the band split for good in early 2013.

Jethro insists Sarah’s many life experiences are shaping her new sound and, in particular, her deeply personal lyrics.

He said: “It’s all character building that’s why I like her. She’s real and that’s what I like in an artist and when she sings it she balls it out and the words really come from within. If I wrote any old pop throwaway song, it wouldn’t be believable.
