Helen Farmer

A BBC-trained broadcast journalist and mum of two young daughters, Helen Farmer juggles a career in broadcasting and blogging with cleaning cereal off the ceiling. She has worked in publishing and radio in Dubai for more than a decade, and is an award-winning journalist, known for her honest (perhaps too honest…) take on living, working and parenting, through her blog The Mothership.
