For the Mother’s Day Special of #RaiseHerUp, we welcome the brilliant Katie Kirby: award-winning blogger, cartoonist, writer, and role model for harried mums everywhere.
Katie’s blog, Hurrah For Gin, very quickly found a large and loyal following of parents who identified with Katie’s honest yet warm observations of motherhood, as depicted in her unique and very funny cartoons. Katie has since published two Hurrah For Gin books, has well over 700k followers across her social media channels, and has recently published her first two children’s books. The Catastrophic Friendship Fails of Lottie Brooks is the second in the series which follows an 11 year old girl as she starts secondary school and encounters the challenges that go with it, from the trauma of bra-shopping, to the daily mortification of putting up with younger siblings.
Katie gives us her take on motherhood and reinventing yourself after children, and you can listen here or from wherever you get your podcasts.
