So, funny thing. It turns out that when your husband has dumped you it's not the best idea to stay at your parents in law's house and sleep in the bedroom that you first had sex with your husband in. But this time alone, crying. Who would have thought it?! It is my almost ex … Continue reading 11th May: I blame Frank
So I technically can get things done when I'm looking after Emily. She is slowly gaining the ability to sit and amuse herself. But she does like a lot of attention and has a very strong interest in the cat food. I've worked out that if I put Emily at the far end of the … Continue reading 7th May: A tiny traitor
So today was a nice day, we went to visit Emily's dad. Had a walk with the dog in the woods and lunch at Bettys. I enjoyed the day spent together but now I feel a lot of sadness about what we could be missing out on. It seems like such a waste that we … Continue reading 5th May: Feeling blue

Sometimes you just want to binge watch TV and not use your brain (my … Continue reading 27th & 28th April
So I got rather sweary on my last post. Maybe a bit too many uses of the word fuck. Every now and then I get pretty angry at the situation. It's ironic how the post a couple of days before was showing off about Rita giving me a metaphorical gold star in counselling. Anyway I'm … Continue reading 26th April: Must apologise for all that flagrant language. Oopso

Some days I own the title single mother with pride. Single mothers do everything and that makes them extremely capable and strong, who can't be proud of that! (...gets a bit more depressing from here I'm afraid. Click on the title for more.)
