A Single Mother's Life


avatar.jpgWelcome to a Single Mother's Life

 Life has thrown me many curve balls, not least of which was my falling in love and then falling apart when my marriage dissolved. The heartache and pain that we all have to endure at that time is so harsh, but like many of the amazing single mothers I have interviewed over the years, I have risen, like the Phoenix from the ashes.

I am proud to be a single mother. I adore my child. She is the essence of what has propelled me to create this site: Love. There is a time for the anger and hurt to go and a time to start loving yourself and life again.

My blogs will hopefully make you laugh, feel understood, open your eyes to another way of thinking or just simply be a good read for the week. Whatever it happens to mean to you, I thank you for joining me in this journey of empowerment and life.

May yours be a great one. Together, we are Mothers Moving Forward!

With hope and best wishes for you all,

No matter where single mothers are in the world, there seem to be similarities that tie us together in a strong form of emotional camaraderie. Over the last two years, I've interviewed Australian single mothers to understand how they move forward. Now I'm in Oxford, England, to interview British mums to see where our similarities lie. read more
Does your child know the basics of first aid? Would they know what to do in an emergency? I was, thankfully, surprised how much my daughter knew when it came to the crunch, literally... read more
Do you have dreams that you really wish you could fulfil? Do you deep down think they are unrealistic or unachievable? They are not! When there is a will, there IS a way, and life can turn around. It's a matter of half glass full or half glass empty. My glass was empty...for a day... and then I awoke and found it half full. read more
There are so many more casualties in a break up than just yourself, your ex and your kids. Not that that isn’t enough; of course it is. It takes all your energy to deal with just that level of impact. But there are others who also suffer when a break up happens; the grandparents and extended family. So how do you deal with that? read more
There are some things you hope your children will model of your behaviour; maybe it’s your attitude to life, your work ethic, or your values. But there will undoubtedly be some things you hope they don’t model. For me, it was my fears. read more
My mother saw me vacuum a cockroach off the ceiling tonight.“Is that really my daughter?” she shrieked in amazement. It was not the novelty that I used a vacuum instead of fly spray. It was not that I leapt in one foul swoop nimbly on top of the kitchen bench, wielding the vacuum hose at the same time. No, it was simply the fact that I was willing to run towards the offending creature, rather than run in the opposite direction... read more
