Guest post:How to help a friend who has just got out of an abusive relationship

By Hannah Katherine Baer   I wouldn’t wish an abusive relationship on my worst enemy. Abusive relationships either physical or mental can have damaging affects for years. Often the abuse victim doesn’t want to fully say what happened, either out of embarrassment or the trauma of reliving the events. As a friend, your first reaction is to plot the death of the person who hurt your friend. Although I wouldn’t suggest it .. the anger you feel comes from a good place (plus karma will do the work for you! 😜) So after the initial break up … how can … Continue reading Guest post:How to help a friend who has just got out of an abusive relationship

The sh*t that goes down when you go abroad with small children

Imagine the beach. Golden sands, waves gently lapping at your toes, a cocktail in one hand and a trashy book in the other. Life is good. The children are building a beautiful sandcastle, one with turrets and double glazed windows. (they will obviously be architects when they grow up) Your hot husband is lying next to you, marvelling at your model-like body. First of all, hit delete on the man. Chuck the cocktail away. You won’t get to read your book because your children are trying to build a castle out of poisonous jellyfish. You can forget the model body … Continue reading The sh*t that goes down when you go abroad with small children

What’s the difference between a keeper and a Dine n’ Ditch man?

So I’m sure from reading other posts you are pretty up to date with what makes your new man decidedly un-worthy of you and your children. I could write an entire Bible’s worth of information on terrible men, who crawl from under their respective rocks to ghost, mess you around and so forth, but I felt it was time to spread some positive vibes. Contrary to popular belief all men aren’t the same. They don’t all prowl the streets with a hard on looking for some girl to cheat on and lie to. They don’t all pretend to want to … Continue reading What’s the difference between a keeper and a Dine n’ Ditch man?

“Broko + Eve” My homemade version of Coco+Eve’s bestselling hair mask

“Broko + Eve” the broke girl’s guide to making the worlds number one hair masque at home I don’t know about you, but Coco + Eve caught my eye. I’ve been in hot war with my easily damaged, thin hair since the beginning of time, so anything promising to make my barnet mermaid-worthy gets me salivating like a cat on fish Friday. I was sold by the ultra annoying promo vids, featuring bitches with bouncy, beautiful hair (and a jarring background of toxic modern day music that makes me want to punch grandmas). Then I clicked my way through to … Continue reading “Broko + Eve” My homemade version of Coco+Eve’s bestselling hair mask

In the event of a wet wipes ban use this handy hack!

So the UK has decided they are going to “phase out” wet wipes, because people are flushing them down toilets(whoever you are I will kill you). It’s sad that some people can’t read instructions and have indeed, ruined it for the rest of us. I have tried to envision my life without wet wipes, and found myself more upset than when my last boyfriend broke up with me. I mean I use them to clean most surfaces, remove my make-up, and of course wipe my children’s bottoms. In fact, I do feel that Theresa May should be made to wipe … Continue reading In the event of a wet wipes ban use this handy hack!

Which Drug Represents Your Child?

Don’t ask me how I came up with this one. Just go with it. Alcohol: Spends all day screaming, kissing everyone and knocking things over. Will fight anyone who dare to touch his/her toys. Ends the day by collapsing in a pile of chips. Marijuana: Kind of docile. Will walk around with five crayons up his/her nose and not even notice. Will happily vegetate in front of the TV with a family bag of crisps. Sometimes comes out with deep quotes about life. LSD: Plays in the garden all day with an imaginary friend. Is so convincing that you start … Continue reading Which Drug Represents Your Child?

Your Dating Life as a Lord Of the Rings Parody

    The quest for looking for a new partner as a single mother is much like Lord of the Rings. Imagine you are Frodo, traipsing through Middle Earth. Sam Gamgee is your child, he follows you wherever you go and has a massive appetite. You need to get to Mt.Doom in order to have your “ring destroyed”. You start your journey in Hobbiton, where everything is sweet and tranquil. You spend your days sweeping the front porch of your little home as Sam Gamgee pretends to tend to the front lawn. He loves playing “gardener” so you just let … Continue reading Your Dating Life as a Lord Of the Rings Parody
