Closing our this Season with a quick review of how featuring my triplet brothers, Montgomery and Horatio, is going. I couldn’t tell if it would be a smooth experience until I tried, obviously.

Time is precious whatever our age. Wasting our time on conversation topics that bore us can feel pretty mindless. In todays episode I explore the idea of things I don’t care about. You’ll hear examples of conversations that fall into this category. My triplet brothers, Montgomery and Horatio will probably make you almost fall sleep UNLESS you’re into the topics they are passionate about. I find that hard to believe but it’s possible! You’ll learn about one topic I drone on about to anyone who will listen. That’s also possibly a subject my family would say they don’t care...info_outline Behind The Scenes Bulletin - On Reframing Bad Habits
Let’s make bad habits normal, could we agree on this?. In todays behind the scenes bulletin you’ll hear about even more so-called bad habits including how a particular one sparked a mega successful TV show. You’ll learn why I believe that asking neurodiverse people to change bad habits may be unkind. Plus, I encourage listeners to start up conversations about reframing bad habits at school, at home and in friendship groups. Let me know about your bad habits and how you reframe them!!

Habits shape our behaviour. Bad habits; we all have them (apparently) and some people have several in their life. In this episode we consider a list of habits that kids display and how these are seen as bad, by grown ups. But what would it be like if we thought about these pesky habits differently? Could this be possible, and if so, would reframing them make a difference to how we feel about ourselves? Flipping the script on our bad habits can fill us full of hope and compassion for ourselves. I hope you start conversations about bad habits wherever you go. Tell me about your...info_outline Behind The Scenes Bulletin - On Pyjama Weirdisms 2
Being a critical thinker is important. When we notice other people do things differently than ourselves we can find out why without making anyone wrong, or right. In this tiny behind the scenes bulletin I raise awareness of the responsibility brands have about this topic. I make a plea for gender fluid pyjamas - let me know your opinion on this!

In this episode, we explore one big pyjama issue. Can you believe this ordinary garment causes such a stir? Having covered pj storage and social norms of pyjama wearing in public in the last episode, we move onto something that adults get into a pickle about. The focus of this show is on examining taken for granted things we do everyday. I prize apart basic assumptions. It’s important I mention this as today we are wondering about what people wear under their night wear. This is not out of any interest in anything other than why some people seem to wear undies underneath nightwear...info_outline Behind The Scenes Bulletin - On Pyjama Weirdisms 1
There are ‘rules’ of society and actual legal rules. So while many frown about people wearing pyjamas in supermarkets, are there any actual laws stopping us from doing it? In this behind the scenes bulletin the reality of bans on pj wearing while shopping is explored. How come there’s a big fat gap between what ordinary people on the the street can wear out in public, compared to celebrities who are celebrated for being out in their pyjamas? Let me know what you think! Send me your thoughts to If you’d like to know more about me and what I’m doing as a social...info_outline On Pyjama Weirdisms 1
In this episode, we explore the fascinating world of pyjamas and their significance throughout history. From their origins in India to their association with gender equality and liberation, pyjamas play a unique role in society, even now. Seriously, who knew that these humble garments could bring big dilemmas and even some pretty significant double standards. It’s hard to imagine controversy around such cosy clothes, isn’t it?! Which is why bringing you two different debates in this episode on pyjamas is a great pleasure. In fact, I was wearing pyjamas as I recorded this episode for...info_outline Behind The Scenes Bulletin - On Adult Sayings That Make No Sense
Honesty is the best policy, I’m told. This behind the scenes bulletin pretty well tests out that idea and stretches what’s okay to divulge. Maybe this will be tame for you, maybe not. Whatever you think, I’m keen to hear your responses to my backstage admissions.

It’s important I mention this as today we are wondering about what people wear under their night wear. This is not out of any interest in anything other than why some people seem to wear undies underneath nightwear while other people do not.
This is a sensitive topic because my asking this question could be misunderstood. But that’s the thing, we need to talk about this as it seems like rules are being made up about what’s normal, what’s the ‘right’ thing to do, and why people wear what they wear!! Team undies, team no undies. Hear what my correspondents say too; isn’t it an interesting topic?!
