It would be foolish to think that a man would not be soon pricked by a slow and slow speaker, when he says: “I am an old wench.”
“I was completely turned upside down and I was so skeptical that I looked for what was wrong in the first place. I don’t think I was always like that and maybe we weren’t born like that but I always feel like this.
“I think it’s an Irish thing: our expression for a good day is ‘not bad’, we’re never too happy about anything.
“If you ask someone how she’s doing, they’ll say, ‘Yeah, she’s great,’ and you’ll think, ‘She’s a good girl.’

His podcast-topping podcast, Thanks a million,reinforces this idea, a daily practice she has honed since becoming a mother to Ruby (4) and Marnie, 9 months.
It’s the same sense of hope and optimism that made the 37-year-old so successful that she was the only cover choice for our gift guide magazine.
“I see them (the kids) living in the moment, and I get a kick out of that. We think it’s all about yoga and these Instagram-worthy moments, but most of the when it comes to enjoying a little hug or a meal together.

“I have ordered a surprise cake for the team because you never know what next year will bring. We had a lot of fun doing the show, and it went down really well, and that’s not often the case in this industry,” he said.
“You’ve put your heart and soul into something, and for whatever reason, it doesn’t matter. It’s not easy, I’ve been away from my family every week with a young child, but I’m very proud.
After interviewing everyone from Jedward to Mary Berry, he said: “I come to the show with a heart, it’s normal. I don’t accept (guests) what under oath. People are very open-minded and will analyze things that don’t exist.
