Count me in
I've been a SM since my DS was 2yrs and my DD was 2months.
Just wanted to have a whinge
If I see this: "I know what it's like because my DH works FIFO, or long hours, or blah blah so I'm practically a single mum myself...." one more time, I may scream!!
No that's bullshit. You don't know what it's like at all. GRRRRRRRRRR.
It's like me saying, "oh one day I was really down in the dumps, so I know what's it's like to have PND"
Anyhoo I'm not generally pissed off (all the time ) but this one really gets my goat!
It annoys me sooo much reading that, yes but you have someone to call for a whinge, someone still comes home to you, someone still freaking pays the bills!
Anyways I have been a bit MIA on here for awhile, the whole benefit thread awhile ago left a very bad taste in my mouth about some of the members on here, and I was questioning why as a single mum I am always on a wedding forum lol.
Most people probably know that I have been single for oh um 3 years now. I am more than comfortable in my singleness.
I love Abbey to death and would never be without her, but I would love some time to myself. I had a day to myself to go to Good Vibes, back in February and I went out for 1 night when I was in Melbourne but other than that it is me, and me alone. Her father, and I use the term very loosely, has never seen her. I am secretly a bit jealous of people that get a weekend off when their child goes to their other parent.
On a positive note I have applied to do remedial massage at TAFE, hopefully starting in July.
