Mother

My debut ‘Mama of the Month’ questions begin with some mothers who have more experience than I do… and I always love to hear advice from women who have been through it all and can look back and tell us newish mothers what it’s all about.   To start – who better than Lucia Whitehouse aka Grandmother Pukka, mother to Anna aka Mother Pukka.  Lucia has recently become a grandmother for the second time when Anna gave birth to beautiful Eve last week.

I’m about to shatter your impressions of how you perceive models.  Please do not read on if you want to believe that all models are perfect in every single way. Yes I thought you may want to read on… cheeky. This is an account of what really happened when I shot this TV commercial.  A ‘behind the scenes special’ if you please. You may be familiar with this TV commercial – it’s on your screens now and I’m the blonde girl . It all started the day of the casting.  I
