Dear Diary

My schedule these days is different now and I think I need to have a conversation about it with Clarke. A Grandparent working group might be a good idea to assist me.

Being the Prime Minister of New Zealand is a demanding job with all those visits to schools and Pacific island nations. It took me ages every morning to read all those letters from school children and those photo shoots for magazines can be exhausting but I must admit that this motherhood gig is really tough.

I mean look at my schedule since 11pm last night.

  • cuddle her
  • change her nappy.
