Bloom featured on BBC Radio Norfolk

Last Friday I was invited to take part in an interview with Sophie Little of BBC Radio Norfolk as part of their series looking at parenting.  I can’t deny I was super nervous, I’ve never done radio before (apart from a questionable workplace quiz where I was an embarrassingly quiet team member a few years back) but I swallowed my fear and headed to the BBC Studios at The Forum, hoping that my mind wouldn’t go blank and my mouth wouldn’t dry up!
