Single Mum Realities, a long moan

I’ve been feeling pretty shitty lately, no idea why (I know full well why - a big fat FUCK YOU to Mother Nature you old rag). Being a single mum is bloody great and I’m so empowered and strong and blah blah blaaaaah. It’s nice I feel that way sometimes, and it’s really bloody fantastic… Continue reading Single Mum Realities, a long moan

Being A Single Mum

Being a Mum is fucking hard. But being a single mum is a different kind of hard. Not harder, but literally a completely different kind of hard. You're solely responsible for your tiny human. You put the food on the table. You make sure they're clothed. You make sure they're healthy. You do the bedtimes,… Continue reading Being A Single Mum
