Single Parent Round-up: Dating – how does that work?

Valentines Day has just passed us by, leaving a trail of rose petals, a whiff of perfume in the air and the echoes of sweet nothings….or maybe not. Do single parents get the time to date? How do they meet people? Are they sat at home, feeling lonely and left out? It’s not all as […]

Single Parent Round-up: Public personas & primary school placements

This month I’ve been thinking a lot about the “public persona” we put across on social media. A friend complained to me that I keep “showing off” about how great my life is on Facebook, but the reality is that I just don’t want to dwell on any negativity so I’d rather only show the […]

Single Parent Round-up: Happy new ear! [sic]

Happy new year! How are you doing? It feels a little silly saying that now, at the end of January – but my daughter is saying it so why shouldn’t I? In fact, she’s not actually saying happy new year; she’s saying happy new ear! She says it to bin lorries, to shops, to dogs in […]
