New blog post all about my son and the challenges of raising a feminist boy when you're doing it all as a solo mum. http://www.ellamentalmama.com/single-mum-son/

Almost seven years later and it's time to move on. I've just dismantled the bed (floor for us tonight), almost finished putting everything in boxes and am ready for the next stage tomorrow. Here's a post I wrote a few weeks (or probably more like months now!) about this place which has such incredibly conflicting mixed emotions for me. http://www.ellamentalmama.com/moving-house-memories/

Not one to sit around once I make a plan… here’s my next installation of my 'make me a baby plan'! http://www.ellamentalmama.com/single-mum-by-choice-choosing-a-fertility-clinic/

I've been umming and arrhhing about pressing publish on this post for ages now - it kind of feels once I say this outloud there is no going back and also I'm scared of how people will react if I'm honest. After the sad events of the last few weeks and months, I've been reminded that life is too short to give a shit what people think. So folks. This is MY decision. If you don't approve, move on. If you do, then I look forward to keeping you updated with my story over the coming months (and years!) And if you are also going through this or thinking of going through this then I'd love to hear from you. xx http://www.ellamentalmama.com/deciding-to-be-a-single-mum-by-choice/

I'm not that political on this blog usually, but the Grenfell Tower tragedy and how it relates to politics and our recent election has been weighing on my mind heavily over the last few nights so I wrote this. Massive love to all those who have been affected by the tragedy and I hope that we can all come together not just to donate and support but also to consider what role we can all play in the powers that be to ensure they don't allow such tragedies to happen again. http://www.ellamentalmama.com/grenfell-tower-fire-politics/

New blog post from me all about the election and my child free weekend. I'm posting it early because I'm just dashing from work to pick my son and we are off out campaigning again. Hoping it will be just as much fun with a three year old in two. Wish me luck! http://www.ellamentalmama.com/how-the-election-campaign-made-me-smile-again/

Just a little bit of begging for votes before the election, no not THAT one! But seriously if you like any of my ramblings then I'd love a little vote :) http://www.ellamentalmama.com/vote-for-me/

Feeling pretty exhausted with all this at the moment. It might be nearly three years since we split but most days it feels like the chaos he brings upon my life will never end. Today I had to take the afternoon off work so I could take little one to the health visitors because of THIS. And I don't mean your 'usual' health visitor check up. I mean a special one. To check I can raise my own child right. My ex has zero awareness what impact he still has on my life every.single.day. All he can see is the anger he feels. And I’m not even sure why. He’s remarried. Moved on. Got a new life for himself. But that’s the thing about crazy ex’s, when there’s a kid involved the mayhem is never far away. http://www.ellamentalmama.com/the-unwanted-guest/
