The Curious Mummy


WHAT IS IT YOU LOVE ABOUT MUSEUMS? So much! Going into a museum is like entering a new world. Even if you’ve been to the same museum 50 times, there is always new characters to meet and new stories to listen too šŸ™Œ
BEST CHILDHOOD MEMORY? Going to the beach with my family. Building sandcastles with my brother, donkey rides, ice creams, watching my Mum & Dad laugh together and ending the day with a fish & chip supper. Magic! šŸ–šŸ¦šŸ–
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MUSEUM AND WHY? Eeeek! I love so many, the V&A for the fashion exhibitions, the National Maritime museum for their brilliant children’s area-I wish this was around when I was a child, The Natural History for the Dinosaurs and animals, The Science Museum because it is so interactive and it hasn’t changed since I was a kid. The London Transport Museum for it’s artwork and the Horniman Museum for its variety-Its like the best bits of all my favourite museums ā­ļø
WHAT WAS THE LAST PICTURE YOU TOOK ON YOUR PHONE? My Dad cuddling Finley and Olivia šŸ¤—
IF YOU WERE TO CREATE A PIECE OF ART WHAT WOULD THE SUBJECT BE? I would create a piece to depict my personal journey into motherhood and in the style of my fav artists – Alison Watt and Jenny Saville šŸ’œ
WHO WOULD BE YOUR PERFECT MUSEUM BUDDY? My perfect museum buddy is my son Finley. I love how he is amazed by everything he sees and the stories he hears. Hearing the word “wow” never gets boring ā­ļø ā­ļøā­ļø ANY PARENTING TIPS? 1)Throw away the parenting manuals and trust your instincts. It’s nice to have a guideline but Gina Ford has never met your baby 2) Never underestimate the power of a cuddle. You are the centre of your little ones world and a cuddle will mean more than you’ll ever know 3) If you’re kids are going batshitcrazy walk out of the room, and go put the kettle on šŸ™ŒšŸ™Œ
