About This Blog

This is a blog about my life as a single parent to my beautiful little man Chunk and about life in general. 

I became a single parent when Chunk was 6 weeks old, and I've done literally everything (financially, emotionally and practically) for him ever since, and I'm still alive to tell the tale!

My first blog, The Pregnant Pessimist, detailed my experiences of my pregnancy in all its detail and this is the next chapter.

I call myself a single parent pessimist,  because I'm blunt, honest and realistic: something many of those optimists out there would describe as pessimistic :)

As well as my rants, advice and general chit chat, I also review places/products/services that are relevant to parents, home, lifestyle and children and families, from parenting books to potties and mummy pampering products! 

You may also find the odd competition giveaway and random post about my lovelife.

Nothing I write is to offend, it's purely a space for me to vent and reflect on my achievements and failures in the wonderful, but scary world of lone parenting.


  1. Really good blog, I love reading it, well done!

  2. I was just searching for blogs to follow and the title of yours really caught my attention - I love how honest this is! More people need to tell the truth about the ups and downs of parenthood.

    I'm not a single parent, but my husband is a medical resident working 80+ hours a week so I take care of our 5 month old daughter alone 98% of the time. Can't wait to dig in and find some stuff I'm sure I'll relate to!
