Homework – A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent. – Single Dad, Parents Article

The hardy old rose bush right next to the front door. Against all the odds, it just keeps on giving. In a few hours the school at home project restarts again. One more 7 week push before we finally arrive at the summer holidays. What kind of Britain will it be? The old normal, the new normal or something else. This afternoon was glorious. Hot (for here) and sunny. Unbelievably not a single cloud all day. This is Yorkshire remember.…

Dear John – A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent. – Single Dad, Parents Article

I seem to have upset someone with my last post. The person clearly didn’t want his name mentioning. Sorry I blocked you John. I assume that’s his name from the email address. My finger must have slipped. Ok John, to help hide your identity how about I call you something like Dork Head. According to my new friend, I apparently was disrespectful to the President of the United States. Really…. I must have missed that one. I was also patronising…

Sorry having to milk the red flowers. They don’t last long and then that’s it for another year. Sadly shopping comes round much more frequently. Another weekend shopping experience to be quickly forgotten. Yes we are always thankful to get some stuff. Things like bathroom rolls (toilet paper) and soap are getting easier to find. Finally some popcorn. Ok it’s just salty but we can add honey to it. But then the inner grump comes out in me. So many…

Social Distancing | Single Morthers Outreach – Single Mum, Parents Article

FJ: What are your responsibilities as the founder of your nonprofit?SMO: The responsibilities of a founder may vary. As a tax-exempt organization, a nonprofit will be accountable to the people it serves, other funders, the attorney general, and the general public. A funder has a choice to be part of the staff or part of the board. Again, I am not the founder of SMO.

He has a name – Foster Parents Article

Around the country foster group homes, juvenile detention centers, and prisons where youth are held are seeing an uptick in coronavirus outbreaks. Riots are breaking out with kids running away from facilities because they are afraid of being infected – in one instance they were tear-gassed. These children are being placed in 20-hour-plus solitary confinement for their own “protection”, but in unventilated cells that often have not been cleaned properly. Children can have no family visitors, and their educations are…

Busy – A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent. – Single Dad, Parents Article

Running round the small garden for what seems like the millionth time and desperately trying to find an excuse to stop for a few seconds. Thankfully a yellow rose is a suitable excuse for a photo pit stop. I’m sat writing this during another brief day pit stop. Son is having a wander round the garden, dreaming and working on what we do next this Sunday afternoon. It will be a short pit stop. Maybe 30 minutes at most. It’s…
