Well, if you’re Meg Mathews that is! Best known for being the ex wife of Noel Gallagher, the multi-talented blogger, scarves and interior designer, is also mum to their 12 year old daughter Anais.
Chatting to Meg at her launch of her range for furniture and home accessories store, Dwell, the 46 year old was more than happy to share her secret.
Over a glass of champagne at the Tottenham Court Road store, she said ‘Monday to Thursday I know Anais is at boarding school – she loves it. No-one worries about what they look like and walk around in their pyjamas, ripped Converse trainers and limp hair!
‘I grew up in boarding school and loved it, lots of happy memories – so I didn’t think of doing anything different for Anais. I went to school with [director] Guy Ritchie and I’m still best friends with his sister.’
Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against boarding schools – it’s definitely an individual’s decision – and it seems to be working for Meg…
She went on, ‘During the day I don’t really have schedule – I make lots of lists and rush around till everything’s done!’
