Girl About The Yard Chats to… Charlie Gray

This week; I’m chatting to Charlie; a mummy to 3 children and a wife to Simon, with a background of fashion, retail, interiors, holiday rentals, and childcare and a love of homemaking, cooking, gardening, animals, exercise and all things practical to make our lives’ easier.

She is full of energy and love getting stuck in! Whether that’s in the garden or cooking up a feast! Organising a party or greeting B & B guests! Or watching a good movie while tackling a pile of ironing! (fitted sheets are her speciality!)

Over the years, with a varied background and a wonderful mother that taught her so much, she has picked up lots of different skills, which is exactly why she started Ask Charlie – She is acutely aware that a lot of these practical skills that were passed down from parents have been lost over the passage of time. And without home economics lessons being taught any more, I hope with Ask Charlie; you feel empowered! Every day Charlie am learning new ways to do things and hopes to share this with you.

Girl About The Yard Chats to… Georgie Round

This week I chat to Georgie Round – who is a professional show jumper based in England. We discuss the mental approach to nerves in the ring; getting from 80cm to Grand Prix and how she used to love dressage until something happened. 

She is a humble horse rider who is going from strength to strength. Since we recorded, she has been diagnosed with breast cancer and remains to be as up beat as she is on the podcast.

Listen to her question on her favourite drink… I was shocked!
