Good-Bye Puf 

A few days ago I said good-bye to an old friend called Puf. Well not quite friend, but we had a relationship for over 15 years. I had Puf as soon as he came off the factory line, yes you guessed it! My car, Puf, was a Renault Scenic and we had many good times together, but finally on the 17th of January 2017 her engine stopped moving.  I picked up Puf on the 3rd August 2002 from the car showroom. It was the first time that I bought a new car so it was always going to be a… [Read More]

So here are the 5 new Dad Bloggers I think you should watch out for this year.  All five dad bloggers mentioned in this post have been blogging for… [Read More]

Can you feed the family for £2 a day?

Did you know that it costs just £2 to feed and educate a child in Zambia every day? That’s just £62 a month! When I think about how much my weekly food shop is, it’s a lot more than £62 and that’s just for the week. That’s for a family of four – two adults and two children. This January, Voucher Box has teamed up with UK based charity Zamcog to present to you The £2 challenge. As per the title of this post, we want to know if you can feed each person in your family for just 2… [Read More]

My Sunday Photo 

Last week we went for a country walk in a local park beauty close to where we live and came across this amazing tree which looks like it has a face on it.  Something we intend to do more of this year is go for country walks. The twins love it and it’s a good healthy way to start the New Year. 

As Parents Do You Agree Or Disagree

As parents do you always agree together as to the decisions regarding your children or is it a point of conflict? As parents do you have same values in the possible rights and wrongs of parenting or is it something that causes issues? Do you have the same attitude towards your children on how they should be disciplined? How many toys or treats they should have? Is this something that that you agree on or does it cause friction? My wife and I, most of the time agree with the upbringing of our children, but there are number of things… [Read More]

Breast or Bottle: A Dads Perspective 

I seem to read a never ending amount of posts about the advantages and disadvantages of breast or bottle, and 99.9% of the time they are written by mums, which if I’m honest is what I would expect.     There always seems to be a lot of argument and debate over what is best, but rarely have I seen a post by a dad on the subject of breast or bottle fed babies, so I thought I would give my view on what appears to be a controversial subject. I have to say that I’m not passionate about either…. [Read More]

Dad Bloggers Will Always Be the Minority 

As a Dad blogger I often read how we are always in the minority in the blogging world and in truth I really don’t see that changing any time soon. I don’t know the exact stats, but I would imagine for every dad that starts a blog there are numerous mum’s starting a blog, but this all got me to and I wonder why? Why is the blogging world so heavily dominated by women? Are mum’s/women better writers than dads/men? Is the blogging audience predominantly women who only want to read other women’s blogs? I personally have read great blogs… [Read More]
