Child maintenance || Will it ever get settled?

Child maintenance

I’m pretty cross right now. I have spent the best part of six years trying to get my ex-partner to pay his child support. And nobody is doing anything to help.  After a having a search online as to what to do, I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands. Hell hath no fury like a woman who is owed money!

Breastfeeding sucks

breastfeeding sucks

I have no idea how the conversation went from books and plane tickets to breastfeeding in the office one day, but it did. Back when I worked for a different site, I was the only parent there so everyone used to ask me weird parenting questions.

How not to lose weight

Everyone at some point has thought about losing weight but for me it’s never about losing weight. It’s about being healthy. So when me and the rest of my brood were struck down with a stomach bug, I was pretty annoyed about being ill.

An open letter to David Cameron and Nick Clegg

I was so excited to hear that you are taking such a pro-active approach to fix “Broken Britain”, especially seeing as you want to make children spend time with their absent parents. I wish you could hear the sarcasm in voice because that is by far the stupidest idea I have ever heard. Let me explain the harsh simple truth behind this problem- most of these “absent parents” are absent for a reason, because their kids don’t want to see them. For most people it has nothing to do with denying access, sure it happens, but if you ask most of these children why they don’t see the other parent, it boils down to not wanting to see them. And now you want to force children like my daughter to spend “quality time” with someone they hate. Nice one.

Just Say YES!

I had a shocking thought last week about how I say NO to everything. I say no to my kids, my partner, myself. I was driving along when my three year old starting asking me for juice.

“Juice mummy! I need juice!”

“No, you don’t need juice and mummy is driving.”

Wait, what? Did I just tell a three year old that they aren’t thirsty? How the hell would I know? I’m not him, he is the only one who knows that he is thirsty. So how dare I tell him that he wasn’t thirsty!
