Step-off

Recently I found myself chatting with someone I'd met online. The number of kids I have came up as we chatted and flirted and talked about setting up a date, along with the fact that they're not sure they could take on that many and survive.

Twitter roundup – part two

Double lazy post alert! Earlier in the week you may have seen me sharing some of my Twitter posts with y'all. In that first post I shared mostly posts about dating and being single, but that's only half of what this blog is about. Today comes some other posts looking at my constant struggles with...

Year one of being a single parent

Yesterday in the UK was Father’s Day, a typically overblown corporate sponsored event designed to shift boxer shorts, novelty ties and as many soft rock compilation CDs as possible. I celebrated it in as close to traditional style as possible – I was treated to breakfast in bed, got a few presents and went out... Continue Reading →
