You asked for it!

Please be gentle!

I haven’t listened to it (how Tilly watched herself on TV I have no idea)…but I make no promises for erudition or entertainment!

    Fabulous! It’s so lovely to put a voice to the face too. Fascinating to listen to the man before you,

  2. Aww bless you, you sound sweet, confident and very practical – not that we hadn’t got that from your blog already!

  3. You came across really well Evie, bravo! Nice to hear a familiar accent (I’m also from Lancashire!) I agree about hearing your own voice on tape, it’s horrific, I can’t even bear to hear myself on the answer machine! x

    That was really fun! Thank you!

    Oh Evie, that was so much fun (and I agree with Clipped Curves – you do sound sweet!). I agree with what you said about these skills not being respected by the powers that be. You should see the looks I get from my lawyerly co-workers when they find out I knit and sew. Here’s hoping that attitude changes soon, and that we can find more time in a day to do all the domestic things we love.

    • You are too kind. Your lawyerly co-workers are really missing out!
      I do think, though, that the tide is slowly changing. I’ve read several articles over the past few weeks lauding the stay-at-home mother. It’s long overdue, I think. We should be free to make the choices that work for us and our families without being though lacking for putting our homes high on our agendas.

  6. Fantastic, you came across so well and I love your accent. Ooh, that makes me sounds “foreign” saying that 🙂

    You sound great, and you have a lovely laugh! I’m very impressed, though not surprised of course — you are quite well-spoken. Congrats on a successful radio spot! 🙂

    you did sound great- and quite a lot like your Mum!! I am determined to retire as soon as possible so I can fit in all the knitting and sewing that I want to do. Being a stay at home mum and looking after your children is the most worthwhile job. Ignore anyone who tells you otherwise!!

    • Oh Sue! Mum will be howling with laughter when she reads this!
      I do think as mothers we are “damned if we do and damned if we don’t”. But I do think we each have to find a way that works for us and our families. I am very blessed indeed to be able to stay at home. But I do long for the day when every woman’s choices are respected, whatever they are.

    I loved listening and I’ll hear your voice from now on when reading your posts! Great
    points. I’m still trying to figure out how to get my husband to work two jobs so I can stay home – he’s not going for it 🙂

    • I am so very, very lucky to be able stay at home. We don’t have as many luxuries (or new carpets) as I’d like but it’s a trade off we all happily make, and I know it’s a choice that’s not available to everyone so count my blessings every single day.

    I can’t believe you made your wedding dress – did I know that?! Evie, you sound adorable. I think you are a charming radio guest. You shouldn’t worry about listening at all. I think you’ll like what you hear. BTW, as someone who went to boarding school in Somerset, I do think you have a more southern than northern accent. (Natch, I’m no expert!)

  11. Fiona says:

    Brilliant! Lovely to put a voice to you Evie! You really showed the enjoyment and value of sewing.
    I want to see pictures of the wedding dress please! Is it on the blog?

  12. I loved listening to your voice! I know it’s hard listening to yourself but you have a very nice voice! You came through very well, professional and witty, I think. Can’t wait for the 3D version 🙂
