Single Mother Ahoy Podcast


I’ve been thinking about starting a podcast for ages, but never had the nerve to do it. This New Year though, I decided to give it a shot. This has been decidedly nerve wracking, not so much because of the “talking into a microphone” thing, which I’m actually quite comfortable with these days. More to do with the technical side of things. I’ve put it off and put it off, and finally, in the space of 24 hours, I learned how to put a beginning and an end on my audio, how to upload it somewhere, how to put it here on the blog for you all to download and listen to.

Now all I need is for people to actually download it and listen to it!

Please be aware – since I learned all this stuff in the space of 24 hours, and am not a very technically-minded person at the best of times, the podcast is more than a little rough around the edges, with very simple editing and a lot of umming and ahhing. These things will probably improve over time (hopefully!).


And so, if I’ve done this right (there’s every chance I have not), here is my first ever podcast… Be gentle with me!

Well done! Love the baby sounds. I understand about ‘S’ name, I have one of those names that gets pronounced in different ways by different people :-). All the best with your happiness project. Being generous is so lovely, isn’t it; it makes life so much nicer to live. :-)

    The generosity is a pretty selfish thing really – most of my complaining and bitching is inside my head, so by avoiding doing it, I’m the only one who notices and I feel pretty good about myself! Thank you for listening x

Loved your first podcast we’ll done. How about freak out February ? Dance like no one is watching and you’re in a 70s disco everyday? I bet S would love it and there’s a VLOG right there ;-)
