Addictive Personality

The addictive personality is a difficult one to work out. Why are some people more prone to it than others? My own personality has always been very addictive and through my life I have had this confirmed on many occasions. My earliest memories of having an addictive personality was when I was about 13 years old. I tried a cigarette, and sadly I never gave up, and still smoke to this day. This is something I need to address now before they could kill me or at the very least give me cancer. When I started to go out clubbing… [Read More]

Dad Bloggers Are We Really On The Rise?

A couple of years ago I wrote a post called Rise of the daddy blogger. Did we rise? Well maybe, maybe not. I definitely think that we have become a more dominant force than we were a couple of years ago. I also believe we are a respected part of the blogosphere. Whether we have risen or not, well, that’s something I think is still very open to debate. The truth is, dads as bloggers are totally and completely outnumbered by mummy/female bloggers. It’s a numbers game, and I wouldn’t be surprised if mummy bloggers out number dad bloggers 20… [Read More]

My Holiday Destinations Bucket List

Over the course of my lifetime, I have been very fortunate to visit on holidays many wonderful and exotic places. Which include destinations like Rome, Marrakesh and the Balearic Islands. That of course doesn’t mean that I have many more places, that I would love to visit and see the many fantastic places that the world has to offer. So I thought I would do a bucket list of five of the destinations that I would to see before I’m old to get out of my armchair. That’s a while before that happens I might add. So I was wondering… [Read More]

Run WIFE! Run

It’s not often I write about my wife, but I felt this couldn’t be left unsaid in relation to her achievements with her running. This recently culminated in being picked as just one of ten runners in South Wales to be a part of Team Brecon Carreg, and believe me when I say it’s an awesome achievement. It really is, and throughly deserved. My wife started to run about 12 months ago seriously, and started to enter races and decided to train for the Cardiff half marathon. To start running and training for any race whether it be a 5k,… [Read More]

DisneyLand Paris, I’m Coming Back This Year!

Last year I wrote a post all about being grumpy about going to Disneyland Paris. The situation for me was that I was never a Disney fan. I never really liked Disney as a child, so understanding ” the magic of Disney” that everybody talked about, well quite honestly I never got it. Last June within about one hour of arriving at Disney, I was a convert! I had been sold the magic hook, line and sinker. There really is a magic in the air. It’s hard to fully explain, but the minute we arrived at the Disneyland Paris hotel… [Read More]

Dad Has said No! Haha! That Means Yes!

Come on then! How many times have you said no to one of your children when they have wanted something, and you have so meant it and have held out for one minute, and then given in and said yes. This has happened to me so many times that I lost count years ago. Do I know why I say yes so quickly after being totally adamant that they are going to have whatever they are asking for? Simple really! I love my children, and if I could walk on hot coals for them I would, although I wouldn’t recommend… [Read More]
