I appreciate all of you for following my blog over the years, and my attention moved to blogging mainly about Single Mums Business (lots of signposting for Single Dad groups) for the last couple of years, but all with the same undercurrent. All to raise awareness of inaction, and the cost to the economy, and our lives.
Our new Prime Minister Liz Truss, her knowledge of the Single Mums Business Network, aka SMBN, and our renewed hope for access to childcare, homes, financial independence and dignity.
