The secret diary of a single parent bloke

Is it selfish?

Uploaded: Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

Tuesday, February 6th, 2007.

I love my children. And I work hard doing my best for them. But I need a break. Some “me” time. I’ve booked a weekend away with the social group which I’m a member of- a party weekend without kids. And I feel guilty.

They’ve not commented on my weekend away, apart from that they’re looking forward to a weekend with their grandad. And I’ve promised them, and myself, that we’ll go away from a really great holiday abroad in the summer. So why do I feel so guilty?

    I’m utterly fascinated with your blog because I am another single dad & have just started a blog (Single Dad) at

    I will read through all of your stuff when I have the time, but not now as it is 0334. I am tired.

    I Started a blog about two years ago which I intended to be about being a single parent, but all I have done is post over 200 posts raving about completely different things. It has a good readership, but I thought I’d start a more focussed blog separately.

    But I am still floundering around a bit and yours seems more focussed.

    Thanks for reading, and your message. It sounds like your blog is actually more of a “blog” than mine is. I’ve always thought of mine as a continuing story- I’m quite reluctant to describe Single Dad’s Diary as a blog.

    Keep up the good work, a blog is very personal so write if, and when, you want to.
