I can’t tell you how long I was in hair and make-up for this photo, but the words ‘trowel’ and ‘cement’ spring to mind. Sara, of course, is naturally pretty. She’s also enviably slim (and works hard at it). When she tweeted after our shoot that we were the ‘hot sisters’ I spat my tea out.
The reason for our meeting though was a serious purpose. Sara is the ambassador for the Tesco Mum of the Year awards 2012. I went to this year’s ceremony back in March and it really was the most amazing, humbling afternoon; the women who were honoured had all achieved so much despite facing incredible adversity, making a real difference to the lives of those in their communities. Sara was at the event too (she told me she used her tablecloth to dry her eyes) which is why she wanted to get involved with the 2012 awards.
