Our #familygoodtimes Visit to Mcdonald’s With The Characters #ad

We are a family that love to create memories that will live forever, especially for our children. We’re always looking for something new and different for us to enjoy as a family. So, recently, when I was approached by McDonald’s to join in with their new #familygoodtimes campaign, I couldn’t wait to create some more special family moments. My five year old twins love a trip to McDonald’s, but then who doesn’t? I know I do too! Well now is the time to go because McDonald’s have a very special event happening at selected restaurants throughout the UK. They’re having… [Read More]

Bloggers Selling Their Souls For Easy Money? I Don’t Think So

This year has been incredible for me. I have been named the number 2 dad blogger in the UK by Vuelio and shortlisted for an award and numerous features on many websites. First of all I want to point out it’s not luck, I have spent three years and many hours working hard to produce the best content I can and thankfully people read and enjoy it, well at least I get comments to say they enjoyed it. Along with these achievements that have come my way this year, it’s made me more visible to PR’s and more importantly brands…. [Read More]

Kids Today Lack Respect. Why Is That?

Why is it that children of today, and I don’t mean all children, but to me it’s an ever growing bigger percentage of children appear to lack respect for anybody or anything in life. Who’s fault is it that children are like this? Well, in my opinion it’s us as parents. We have gradually taught our children to be selfish and not care what people think of them as long as they get their own way at all costs. This is a sad consequence of the 21st century. I truly believe because you are of the elder generation respect is… [Read More]

Sometimes The Toughest Decisions Can Bring The Most Happiness says

In my life I have been faced with some tough decisions. Usually those decisions have come about because I have been unhappy with my life in some way or another. In my late teens I went to Australia because my brother who was living there and he told me come out you will love it here, warm weather, beaches in abundance and just a better way of life. So I thought why not. I'm just 18 years old without a care in the world. That was where my big mistake was. I went out to Australia. I removed myself from… [Read More]

Our Family Day Out At West Midlands Safari Park

Last Saturday we visited West Midlands Safari Park. We have been before when the twins were three years old. Now they are five years old, they can really begin to appreciate all the animals. In my collage of pictures I managed to capture the lioness on top of a big rock. At just the right moment one walked right in front of our car, and it surprised me how big they are. Thankfully we were all locked inside the car with the windows shut tight. In my second picture I managed to feed the giraffes which I have to say… [Read More]

My Sunday Photo

One of favourite films of all time is Gorillas In The Mist. A truly awe inspiring movie with an outstanding performance from Sigourney Weaver. Another moment of pure magic was Sir David Attenborough sitting with gorillas in the rainforest, a fantastic piece of television. Like a lot of people, I couldn't take my eyes away from the screen. So my contribution to these amazing moments is when I got to sit on King Kong's hand. Ok, I know it's not quite the same, but it felt like it was to me!

Swimming And My Five Year Old Twins

In my five year old twins early years I have to confess we didn’t really take them swimming. The usual reason was time and also when they were little both of us had to go, which of course normally wouldn’t apply if you just had a single baby. So I guess we just put it on the back burner and didn’t get to the swimming pool very often. When we went on our summer holidays the girls loved going into the pool and probably would have stayed in all day. Of course what made it easier was we were both… [Read More]
