What have you given up for lent?

Lent is something that happens every year and it lasts 40 days. This year it started on February 14th and will end on March 29th. It always starts on Ash Wednesday and finishes on Holy Saturday over the Easter period. The idea of Lent is for Christians to reflect. It’s also a time of repentance, fasting and to prepare for Easter. Nowadays times have changed quite a bit from biblical times, possibly because we now have many more temptations, and bad habits that the human race has developed and we can consequently give up for Lent. The world has moved… [Read More]

Tips For Removing A Radiator When Decorating

Over the years I have often been asked to remove radiators before decorating. As such this is now second nature to me, but there was a time when I first became self-employed as a painter and decorator that I didn’t quite know what I was doing. On one such occasion many years ago I was decorating a kitchen and I had to wallpaper all the walls. You can of course just wallpaper around so that you just pass the radiator. and the chances are nobody would know any different. For me that’s simply not good enough. I’m a perfectionist and for… [Read More]

Ways you are Cutting your Life Short (Without Even Knowing it)

If you are worried that you are not living your life to the full or if you know that you just don’t make the effort to look after yourself and you want to do something about this then it is more than possible for you to make the change. You could extend your life by years by just taking the time to look after yourself. Eating Junk Food Chips really are the enemy.

All You Need to Know About Buying a Road Legal Quad

Often called a 4-wheel motorcycle, the quad is used for both recreational and work purposes, with many farmers taking advantage of the clever design that allows them to carry out many tasks that would otherwise be very difficult. The vehicle’s design would be different for a working machine, as it needs to be able to carry objects, whereas a recreational quad would either be for one or two people, depending on its capabilities, and if you are thinking of buying a road legal quad, here are some important things to bear in mind. Licence Requirements If you happen to be… [Read More]

It’s Time To Help With The Environment: Electric Cars

Regular readers of my blog will know I’m a father of five children. My biggest concern for them is how previous generations have messed up our environment. Although I don’t blame them. I’m sure they didn’t do it intentionally, they simply didn’t have the information that we have today. One change I am now seriously thinking of doing to help with the environment is changing my car from a traditional petrol/diesel engine to an electric car. Many manufacturers are producing either hybrid or electric models, and I personally think this has to be the way forward. To stop polluting the… [Read More]

First Teeth: My Sunday Photo

My twin girls turned six years old last month and one of them has finally lost one of their first teeth. Considering they have around 20 teeth each, making 40 teeth altogether, I’m surprised it didn’t happen sooner. So the other day while we were on a visit to my mums house, the girls nana, I was sitting next to R when all of sudden she was holding a tooth in her hand! I have to admit it wasn’t a huge surprise because it had been wobbling for about two weeks. We had talked to the girls about the tooth… [Read More]
