Closer (UK) - - Interview -

HAN­DLING GRIEF “If it’s not hurt­ing you or any­one else, then it’s the cor­rect jour­ney to take. There are no rules. I left Steve’s things in­tact be­cause it was com­fort­ing to me. A col­league did the same af­ter his daugh­ter died, and peo­ple would say he needed to pack up her things or he’d never have clo­sure. Well, you’ll never have clo­sure any­way. You don’t wake up one morn­ing and say, ‘I don’t miss them any more’.”

SIN­GLE PAR­ENT­ING “I’m blessed with a cou­ple of great kids. But it can be chal­leng­ing, and we have a re­ally good group of peo­ple around us. We should all reach out when we need help and not be ashamed – it re­ally does take a vil­lage.”

SO­CIAL ME­DIA “It’s a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to get your mes­sage out to a lot of peo­ple, but it’s some­thing you need to just be mind­ful of. We are very proac­tive with manag­ing things. Any so­cial me­dia that’s neg­a­tive never gets ad­dressed – I tact­fully ig­nore it all!”
