Lord Howe on Kerri-Anne

A little while ago, I was invited to do an interview about living at Lord Howe on Mornings with Kerri-Anne.  In spite of being utterly terrified, I said yes.  It’s not often you have a chance to talk to thousands of people about Lord Howe.  Also, I have a theory that women, not men, make decisions about holidays and lots of women watch Kerri-Anne.  

In the end, Kerri-Anne was away for the week and the interview was with Sophie Faulkner.  When I looked her up on Wikipedia, I discovered that she was born in the same year as me and has a son who is the same age as Elsie.  That made me feel a lot less nervous.  I’m guessing that even supermodel mums spend a lot of time dealing with poo, wee, snot and vegetable refusal.  Having kids is a great leveller.      

So, anyway, here’s the interview.  I hope you enjoy it!  (Personally, I can't watch it.  It's excruciating.  Ever heard a recording of your own voice and winced?  TV is much worse!) 


What you can’t see in the interview is Allan, my father-in-law, who drove me to the interview through very nasty Sydney peak hour traffic and waited patiently in the green room with little Pixie, who fortunately slept through the whole thing.  Thanks Allan!

  5. Hi Dani,

    Just saw your interview this morning on KA, well done.
    My husband Peter ( known on the island as Mav) lived on Lord Howe for a few years and was quite good friends with Fadge,..when I met my husband all he spoke of was his amazing life on Lord Howe and how he wanted to return one day...and we later did and were very fortunate to spend some time at was a magical spot..and we have some wonderful memories to look back.

    Wishing you all the best with your new venture...I have no doubt that you will do the family proud : )
