A Brave New Dawn!
It?s 5am and I?m woken by sounds.. First a sniff, a chortle, a grunt, a sigh, a gurgle, a little shout and finally a small cry. That split second when I?m not sure what day it is has been and gone and now I?m catapulted into reality. My baby needs me to feed him now, […]Continue reading
New Life, New Me.
It?s been 3 weeks since Nick and I became parents for the second time and we couldn?t be more delighted, thrilled and over the moon with the beautiful addition to our Steinberg clan! Little Rory Alexander attended his first concert on Wednesday night and was good as gold listening to his Daddy perform Mendelssohn. It […]Continue reading
B-day! When a big concert day approaches, I always feel like I?m being sucked into a time vortex that shoots me towards the inevitable ?big day? and when it?s over, I feel like I?ve been spat out the other side in a spin of emotions, haggard but elated, exhausted but high as a kite, older […]Continue reading

I have the feeling of uncertainty, unease, anxiety and a need to look into the future to see what will happen next. I was totally surprised by the EU referendum result as I quite […]Continue reading
Love makes the world go round..
With our 1901 Arts Club concert just around the corner, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time recently thinking about this tiny four letter word that is at the centre of our themed programme celebrating St Valentne’s Day. L.O.V.E. It gets used so freely in my world, I hear it, feel it and […]Continue reading
Three is the magic number!
It’s a very odd feeling when suddenly the ground is moving beneath your feet and you’re in the middle of doing the washing up! Or when you feel sick to your stomach at the prospect of eating when your whole body is crying out to lie down right now, next to the washing machine, curl […]Continue reading
