We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

Guess who met Richard Branson today?

It wasn’t me – but my younger sister totally did this a few hours ago!!!

One to show the kids for sure wee blisseeeeeee!

She works at Virgin, obviously, and he came for a meet and greet this afternoon.

And there were hundreds of peeps and security around but I’m proud to say that she managed to tap Mr B on the shoulder and ask for a photo.

He said “yes” and the rest is history!

What are the chances of capturing a blink? Not many, if any!

Anyway, I am TOTALLY in awe of her for having the guts, confidence and ability to walk up to one of the world’s most famous men and photobomb ask for a photo with him.

You totally rock sissy – no shit!

Here are some more pics of Mr B crowd chilling with the V gang!

What a dude!

Totally in awe of him, my sissy just HAD to touch his freshly ironed white shirt!

And just recently my older sister had an AMAZING few days working chilling with the talented actor Russell Crowe!

She said he was extremely smart, thoughtful, clever and very loving and connected to his kids 🙂

My older sissy said she could also feel his whiskers on her face - SWOON!

It seems I’m the only sister with no claim to fame – okay I did get the chance to interview NZ’s first female Prime Minister (YAWN) Helen Clark.

She was WAY nicer than the media portrayed her, and I wish she was given more credit for all that she achieved. She really is a pioneer and I think she is proof that women can be or do anything they desire.

Helen Clark - NZ's first EVER  women Prime Minister, who I had the privilege to meet and interview on numerous occasions as a journo back in NZ some 8 years ago.

However, today I’m just super proud, envious, and totally in awe of my wee sissy.

If you want something, go out and grab it, it won’t come to you!

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. What a cool bunch of chicks you all are! I met Bob Hawke once. He was tanned to the max, like a leather lounge suite!

  2. Awww Ems you sure know how to make a gal feel special- love ya!

  3. That is so exciting!!!!!! You’ve got a strong gene pool there – you all look similar. X

  4. I love Helen Clark and would totally love a yarn with her. Your sisters have almost done as well with their hobnobbing too x

    • Totally love that word – hobnobbing, but I have to say their meetings are more impressive, I pushed myself upon the PM because I was a pushy journo but my younger sister had to stake her claim and my older sissy was there because she has spent years as a super yacht guru! – thanks for comment and visit – Em xx

  5. Very cool shoulder-rubbing there….on all your parts 🙂

  6. How cool is that! Very impressed.

  7. Oh, very cool, Em!! Rubbing shoulders with such high-profile personalities is one thing but having the guts and the confidence to ask for a photo with them is another!
    You guys look so alike! 🙂 x

  8. So jealous!!! I LOVE Richard Branson 🙂

  9. Hehehe!! Hello Mr Branson. I worked at Virgin too – for nearly 10 years!!! Brings back lots of memories seeing these pics xx
