Hello, my name is Shelly and I have been a single parent for over 15 years. I have a beautiful teenage son who is the love and light of my life. I’m also a mama to a beautiful furbaby called Rosie. I always endeavour to create a healthy and happy environment for all of us. I do however, slip up at times and find myself banging my head out of frustration and stress…I feel I am not alone!
I began this blog as part of a university assignment and from then on things began to flow. I graduated a few years ago and began to breathe again after juggling studying, working, and being a single parent. During my journey, I have encountered many challenges, some of which have been the difficulties in finding information on various issues, thoughts, feelings and situations on being a single parent.
Through Solo Talk, I am the voice for many similar to myself. I will be offering information drawn from my daily life as a single parent. Solo Talk will provide material on various organisations that can assist the single parent. I will reflect on my experience to improve my life through study, work, out of work, heart ache, loss, love and lots more. It is my vision to supply information on being a single parent through my eyes and life with a smile, perhaps a tear and a laugh along the way.
Love and Light
Shelly 🙂 xo
