Confessions of a Single Mother: Thank You 2017

Well well well, it’s that time of year yet again. How? How is it 2018 in 2 days time? And how are we at 2018? It does not feel like eighteen years ago we were celebrating the millennium.  I am very proud. 2017 has been a pretty amazing year for me, probably one of the… Continue reading Confessions of a Single Mother: Thank You 2017

Confessions of a Single Mother: JUST SAY YES

Ah such a peaceful sight. You would not think her mother had just spent approximately 2 and a half minutes crying in the airplane toilets due to scenes that had occurred moments prior to this. It all began with the stairs. The unanticipated stairs that made an appearance right by the gate, just as I… Continue reading Confessions of a Single Mother: JUST SAY YES

I will go… Continue reading One mother, three cities, eight days: Why I Felt the Need to Travel Solo

Confessions of a Single Mother: Two Years Later

The Power of Happy: Finding the Funny

“They see the good, embrace the joys and laugh -louder than everyone else- at the funny”. I just spent seven days in Croatia with two of the happiest, most hilarious women I’ve ever known. Maia’s Grandmas. So full of beans, I at one point asked if one of them was taking anything. Nope, just high… Continue reading The Power of Happy: Finding the Funny

“Mummy your Boobies look like my Barbie’s”….

I’ve noticed a bit of a theme developing recently with some of the comments Maia makes, in particular reference to my chest area. It’s only very occasionally, not everyday, and we’re still at the point where we all find it quite funny; so all I can do is share the amusement and hope as she… Continue reading “Mummy your Boobies look like my Barbie’s”….
