Seize the day or hit snooze?

Seize the day. I’ve always been an early riser – which used to piss me off as a teenager, but serves me well now.

 

What motivates you in the morning?

Tea. Ticking off things on my to do list. Achieving shit.

 

What would your dream weekend involve?

A run in the sunshine, a cuddle with my dog, making pancakes with my kids, sitting by a pool with my girlfriends, having dinner with my boyfriend and buying an item of clothing I’ve always hankered after in a 75 per cent off sale.

 

What outfit are you most looking forward to wearing after lockdown, and where will you wear it?

I have worn the same jeans for 365 days so can’t wait to get into my new Wyse dress for a cocktail-fuelled party to celebrate my new book.

What do you think is your finest quality?

Kindness.

 
What was the greatest day of your life?

Not a milestone one – like my wedding or giving birth to my kids – rather a ‘normal’ day surrounded by friends and family, love, chat and sunshine.

 

What one item could you not live without?

I’d like to say a treasured keepsake, but really it’s my phone.

 

Coffee, tea or cabernet?

All three.

 

What was the last thing that made you laugh?

My boyfriend.

 

And the last thing that made you cry?

My divorce.

 

Rosie’s book, How to Heal a Broken Heart

 

Whats the most useful thing your mother taught you?

Love.

 

What is your greatest achievement?

To have navigated heartbreak and emerged stronger and more self-aware. 

 

What embarrassing memory would you most like to forget?

That time a body I was wearing under a see-through dress unpopped at a swanky dinner to reveal my lady bits…

 

What is the greatest life lesson youd like to pass on? 

I love the Buddhist saying about the two arrows of suffering. The first arrow is the bad event, which undoubtedly causes pain. The second arrow is actually optional. It’s about how we choose to react to the event, or the amount of energy we spend worrying about what might occur because of it.

What song will always make you move?

Candi Staton’s You’ve Got The Love

 

And what book will always move you?

Winnie The Pooh. It’s infused with childhood comfort for me.

 

What is your most burning ambition?

To create writing that is truthful and connects with women. And to own a convertible again.

 

What one thing do you avoid at all costs?

Anchovies

 

What is love? 

There are so many forms of love. But the unconditional love I have for my children is mind-blowing.

 

How would you most like to be remembered?

Here lieth Rosie Green. She spoke the truth and made us laugh.
