The Reality of Being a Single Mum Part 2

The reality is, I’m sure you’ve never had to wait weeks, even months for any money towards your child.  The reality is, you probably don’t know what it’s like to never have a ‘sorry’ from someone who’s so unapologetic and sees nothing wrong with their actions or how it impacts their child.

‘I’m basically a single mum myself’ are the words that probably every single mother has heard from more than one person in their lives, usually followed by ‘my husband works long shifts / is always working away’ etc etc Before you say these words to an actual single mum please consider the following: Does your partner […] Read more…

Keep your Head, Heels and Standards high

It’s been almost 2 years to the day since I became a single mum and in these last couple of years I’ve learnt a lot about myself.
