If you could give your children and sisters one piece of advice what would it be?
Nikki: To always be happy. Do what makes you happy. Follow your dreams forever. Lean on the ones that are closest to you. Walk away from the people that give you bad energy. And always just self-care. That was something my mum wasn’t very good at. She always put everybody else first. I have to say that I’m not great at it either but it is something I am learning to do. So it is something I would encourage my sisters and my brother to do.
What will you be getting your sister this Mother’s Day?
Croia: I’ve always got Nikki something for Mother’s day anyway because she is my God Mother as well as my sister so I always got her a little present but I think this Mother’s Day it’s a surprise so if I said it, it wouldn’t be a surprise.
Nikki: It’s going to be a big surprise by the sound of things!
Croia: Yeah, duh!
Nikki: It’s okay I don’t need presents.
Croia: She just needs our love
Nikki: And a takeaway.
What’s your favourite memory with your mum?
Croia: One of the funniest memories I have with my mum is when we’d be sitting at home, minding our own business watching the tele and we’d just look at each other and say ‘let’s go shopping!’ So we’d just get up and go down to the shopping centre and stay there until it closed. There were a few times when they’d turn off the lights and we’d have to be escorted out! There were a few times she would hide from the security guard.
Nikki: My favourite memory is... I’m trying to just pick one. It’s really hard. One would be when we’d be in a supermarket and she’d start dancing and making a face. You’d find her down the toilet roll aisle dancing and I was mortified at the time but that was very funny. Another memory would be when me and my mum took a Sunday and literally snuck off. Told everybody in the house that we had a business meeting and snuck off to find out if Pippa was a boy or a girl. When we found out it was a girl it was the best day we ever had and the best secret we ever kept.
