"I remember a couple of friends who couldn't be there for me and I got it" - Harriet Hadfield

Journalist and "wannabe politician" (her words) Harriet Hadfield joins Samantha Baines to talk divorce, living abroad and her love for the Isle of Wight. Harriet opens up about breaking up with someone in a different country with a one year old and the traumatic journey back home to the UK. The two discuss the importance of friends, how triggering your experience can be for others and getting annoyed with people around you. Harriet describes going through a lorry of her belongings from her marriage and how her new community has helped her so much. Sam and Harriet talk new love, hope and Harriet details her fertility and IVF journey (which has had a happy ending).
