Single Mother Ahoy! 

Welcome to Single Mother Ahoy.

My name is Vicky; this blog is about my life with my daughter.

Here you will find a mixture of lifestyle, parenting, self development and general ramblings.

I work from home as a ghost blogger, copywriter and social media trainer. You can find blog posts on these topics on my business page, VickyCharles.com

I began this blog in 2012, after I posted some of my writing on Facebook and a few friends suggested I set up a blog. I blog about everything from mundane daily tasks, to crafts, to household tips, to politics, to “aww, look at my baby, isn’t she cute”

I also started #ArchiveDay on Twitter: every Saturday, bloggers tweet an old post with the #ArchiveDay tag, and RT other #ArchiveDay posts. The idea is to find new blogs to read, and new readers for your blog. If you have a blog and would like to join in, then please do so; the more the merrier. You don’t have to have old posts from years ago to join in; anything older than yesterday counts as “archive” in my book!

My story

I had a massive nervous breakdown in 2010; I have published a book about my experiences.
While I was recovering from that breakdown, I met a man and got pregnant. The man turned out to be quite abusive, and my pregnancy wasn’t much fun.
My daughter was born prematurely in April 2012, and shortly afterwards the relationship ended (for the umpteenth time) and I became a single mother. I blogged about this in a series of posts that start here.
And now? Now I am recovered from the breakdown. I am better; my life is better. I have learned some valuable lessons, and now I’m getting on with the fun part: life with a toddler!
