Winging it: the truth about parenting

Guilt free parenting site with tales of life as a mum.


Hello, I am a 43 year old first and last time mum, known as Lorraine. I have a little girl, Riley, who is 17 months old and a complete pistol. I live in a small village in Wiltshire with my Riley, my partner Dev and our old man dog Richard. While I am from the area I have moved around a bit. Lived in various parts of England, grew up in Ireland, worked in Guernsey and also America. Finally settled in the south west to raise our child, my hobo days are over, for now that is until she buggers off and we can travel as oldies :).

I have a degree in film, but as Wes Craven didn’t come knocking at my door, I am doing a masters, currently, in Criminology and Criminal Psychology. There may be some talk about the crime channel, I have a slight addiction. Also love my music, film and TV so expect some Walking Dead talk, amongst other things.

Life at the moment is a full time mum, huge adjustment. Love her though and love it.
