To the woman whose husband just left

Fucking hell it hurts. You may have seen this coming, or you might not. Either way I bet it hit you like a ton of bricks. The realisation that the person you thought would be with you for the rest of your life is going. That you aren't the most important person to them anymore, … Continue reading To the woman whose husband just left

Books for a divorcing single mum

Here are a few books that I've enjoyed since finding out that 'till death do us part' actually meant 2.5 years and a baby. I'm not bitter, I'm not bitter at all. (I've actually read way way more as I'm constantly reading but not constantly reading about divorce, do message me if you like a … Continue reading Books for a divorcing single mum

How to feel a little bit better when you’re feeling really shit

Note that I put 'a little', if you read a few posts you'll find I'm not overly qualified for feeling 'a lot' better...but here are my two cents anyway: Put your phone down ...not this second. Read my blog first please. Then put the phone down. For lots of reasons you should put your phone … Continue reading How to feel a little bit better when you’re feeling really shit

Raising a strong little feminist 💪🏻

You know that old saying... I was the perfect parent until I had a child. This is one of those posts. I know I am technically a parent now but this little girl isn't quite old enough for me to be an expert on raising a strong little woman. However I might as well write … Continue reading Raising a strong little feminist 💪🏻

26th April: Must apologise for all that flagrant language. Oopso

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

20th April: Batman in Bury

Bury is Bury St Edmunds, we did not take a mini break to Bury, Lancashire. Ahh mini breaks, I feel like my life has been lacking in mini breaks lately. However this weekend has been WONDERFUL. My sister (who apparently Emily calls 'Auntie Jem Jems' despite the fact I'm fairly sure the most Emily manages … Continue reading 20th April: Batman in Bury

5th April: Loving the little things (or trying to)

I am still feeling yesterday's bad mood. Frank spent all night on and off barking and whining because he wanted to be in the room with us so now I feel exhausted and sad at how unsettled he is. I'm also stuck in that 'I did not sign up to this' particular mood where I … Continue reading 5th April: Loving the little things (or trying to)

1st April: A standard Monday

I think Frank has a love hate relationship with Emily where he thinks she is interesting and loves the offcasts from weaning but also resents her space on the sofa and attention she takes. I often find myself squashed on both sides from them. My husband will soon be taking Frank to live with him, … Continue reading 1st April: A standard Monday
