Over the last few months of 2019 I’ve slowly started embracing the world of mummy blogging (or mommy blogging for my US people) but it’s not been easy as a black single mum.

Having some me time is so important, especially as a mother. Single or not, being a mother requires so much of yourself that it’s easy to lose yourself in the midst of it all.

Lots of big and small things are happening in my life right now and with a very active baby and majority (if not all) of my brains cells are focused on him, I’m not able to write them all down as much as I’d like to.

The pressure to look good without looking like a bag of nerve ruined the whole experience for me.
Now that I am single, the idea of dating brings a new set of nerves.
