My Twin Girls They Are So Different 

I have written many times how different my five year old twins are, but the older they get it’s becoming more obvious how different in character and personality they are. This has become more apparent to me in the last nine months or so. Personally I don’t think it’s a bad thing, because although being twins is something they will be all their lives, they also need to be individuals with their own sets of friends and goals in life. Here are some examples of how different they can be. 1. School  This is one of the most obvious differences… [Read More]

Baby’s On The Way, But Where’s It Going To Go?

Growing your family can be one of the most amazing experiences in life. Whether you’re having your first child or your fourth, it’s something that you always want to be able to enjoy as much as you can. So you don’t want to be worrying about too many finer details when you find out your news. One of those is always, where the baby is going to sleep! It may not be the first thing that you think of, but it’s certainly one of the most important. Whether you have children already or not, you’re likely to find that you’re… [Read More]

Santa Safari:Our Family Christmas Trip to West Midland Safari Park 

One of our favourite places to visit for a day trip as a family is without a doubt, West Midland Safari Park. So when I was asked to bring the family along to experience their Santa Safari, it was an immediate, “Yes, I would love to!” When you have five year old twin girls who completely and totally believe in Santa it’s quite simply magical. They also love animals so to be able to drive through the Safari first and see all the awesome animals before going on to meet Santa. Well, it’s a recipe for a perfect day. We live… [Read More]

I Was So Sure This Lioness Was Looking At Me. My SundayPhoto 

Yesterday we visited West Midland Safari Park for their Santa Safari. Blog post review coming soon! While driving through the safari, I managed to capture this lion walking towards us, and I was quite convinced it was staring straight at me, eyeing up its lunch, haha! It wasn’t until later when I looked at the photograph closer that I noticed the bird in the foreground, which I’m sure it was more interested in! What the Photo really shows to me is how massive this lioness is, in contrast to the tiny bird. Straight after I shot this photo the lioness… [Read More]

Blogging Is An Industry/Business

Most people I talk too and I sometimes mention that I’m a blogger, look at me as if to say, what? My next sentence is always, so you have no idea what blogging is then? The funny thing is they usually reply, yes I know what blogging is, so explain to me what blogging is, and after about 60 seconds I will reply you don’t have a clue what blogging is! The strange thing is if you say you’re a plumber, electrician, hairdresser, or in my case a painter and decorator people instantly recognise that I’m part of a profession,… [Read More]

How Having Kids Impacts Your Relationship With Your Car

When you’re a young independent guy, your car can often feel like one of the most important things in your life. It’s not just the four wheels that you use to get around, it’s a symbol of who you are, of your freedom and independence. The stereotype of a young guy being overly attached to his car might be kind of funny, but it’s also pretty understandable. Of course, as with everything else, that can change pretty drastically when you have a family of your own. Having kids can completely change your priorities in just about every single area of… [Read More]

Getting A Logo For My Buisness 

Regular readers of my blog will know that what I do for a living is painting and decorating. I’ve been doing this for longer than I can remember. Every now and again I like to find a new image or re-brand my business to help keep it fresh and up to date. One of the most important parts of re-branding is getting the right logo. If I’m honest this normally takes me ages and I usually end up putting it off simply because of a lack of time. So when I was searching the internet and came across a simple… [Read More]

Lessons Learnt: Lessons Taught Parent To Child

Growing up for me was at times very difficult. Did I learn anything about parenting from my own parents that I would be able to put to good use when I became a parent? The honest answer is no! Or least nothing that I could use because my parents were not the sort of role models you would wish for that’s for sure. I have always believed if we want our children to be an important part of society and make society a better place to live in we have to give them the tools and education to be good… [Read More]

I’m A Blogger: 3 Reasons My Kids Know It

Most people will know that both my wife and I are bloggers. Let’s be totally honest guys it’s a strange occupation. Whether it’s something you do part-time, full-time or it’s just purely a hobby. It’s obsessive and hugely addictive, and it takes up far too much time, but it’s also very enjoyable and fun to do, that definitely has some bonuses. When I first started blogging, I don’t actually know why I started. Boredom was a major factor because being stuck at home with a broken wrist for six weeks meant I needed something to occupy my time. What I… [Read More]
