Single Mothering Like A Boss

Surviving and thriving as a single mum after life kicks you in the butt.

About Me

Hi there gals, I’m Lou Lou and five years ago I lost my best friend, the love of my life, the father of my children and my stability when my husband died very suddenly and my world was completely torn apart. I literally had absolutely no idea how I would move forward and honestly didn’t think I would. I wanted to fast forward my life to a minimum of ten years on.

Since then I have made some hideous parenting mistakes that will definitely not gain me any parent of the year awards, have suffered the insidious world of online dating (WTF is happening in that world?!), have gained a ton of weight, lost it and gained it again, killed half of the garden, fed my children lite n easy, drank far too much wine and whole lot more dreadfulness.

I am also raising two amazing (albeit frustrating) kids, have been in a meaningful (somewhat) relationship, have kept up a tight fitness routine and am on track with getting in shape for the long term, have NOT miraculously killed the precious lawn I never wanted, can now cook and actually plan meals (I know right), still drink too much wine but have made changes and rules and a whole lot of other awesomeness.

I’m in the process of designing my dream life (there is such a thing isn’t there?) and sharing some of the stories along the way is part of that so thanks for joining me and I hope some of what I go on about tickles your fancy (and maybe helps-I do hope so). I love company!
