Alma

This week I’ve been practicing my single parenting skills. Tom has been away all week again. And I am SO tired. Oh boy. Single parents out there, I salute you.

My mum was a single parent. She was often tired but never complained. Perhaps I will tell you more of my story sometime. Basically, My dad was crazy. Mum and me moved around a lot when I was little to get away from him. Eventually we ended up in the town I grew up in. A brilliant little place called Ossett. In infant and junior school, I was that poor kid who had free school lunches and walked everywhere (we didn’t have a car till I was 14). My mum is one of the strongest, self motivated people I have ever known… And I know a lot of people.

Alma rocks.

Eventually, she met and married the love of her life, aka my step-dad. Look at how cute they are.

And before you ask,  no, I’m not adopted:

Love you, mum!
