Forty something divorced single mother of a two teens with a grumpy spaniel thrown into the mix. I’m blogging to remind myself and others like me that divorce and single parenthood are NOT the end of the world! A bit more info about the DD household:
Before having children I had a happy career in TV production. Since having children I have been an aspiring yummy mummy, a reluctant single mummy, an ever hopeful entrepreneur and a freelancer in a variety of roles. I have lived in ten different towns and cities in the UK and moved house 27 times. Live is anything but dull…
I say – control freak, creative, ambitious, hopeful, dramatic
Teen 1 and Teen 2 say – Devoted, Motivated, Sometimes Stressy, a good cooker (sic)
Teen 1 (Millie)
Feisty fifteen year old with a big heart, sensible head and a Masters in slamming doors. The teen loves sport, music and Gossip Girl. She has met her out of the ordinary upbringing (many houses, many schools) with enthusiasm and stoicism and has a great gift of always looking forward, never back.
She Says – I am not participating in this why do you have to be SO embarrassing?
DD and the Tween Say – Funny, annoying (says the tween, obvs), generous, hard working
UPDATE!! The teen is now sharing her view of the world on her own blog
Teen 2 (Clover)
13 years old and navigating the treacherous waters of early teenhood. Teen 2 is all about Blue Peter one day and Sherlock the next. She wants to be Zoella when she grows up and is addicted to You Tube. She loves gymnastics and bakes the best cakes in the house.
She Says – Mischievous, Amaze-balls, cray-cray, demanding
DD and Teen 1 Say – Quirky, affectionate, irritating (guess who added that one…), unique
The Spaniel (Harry)
He rules the roost and we can’t imagine life without him. Faithful, loving, slightly neurotic and quite smelly a lot of the time.
He Says – Woof
We All Say – Get DOWN Harry!
