Easter Break: Summer Is Nearly Here! YAY! 

I love summertime because my job as a painter and decorator is made much easier with lovely sunny weather in planning my work and it hopefully works out on the dates I plan. Firstly though with Easter just behind us, this always makes me feel that much closer to summer and seeing the back of winter and it’s terrible weather so I thought I would give a quick update of my Easter break. The twins were definitely ready for a break from school. They had only had one week off since Christmas and it’s so easy to forget that this… [Read More]

The Teenage Years 

I have lived a few years and looking back at life, I have often wondered what were the toughest years to live and for me it’s a no brainer. The teenage years were easily the hardest as they are for a massive percentage of young people. We all have changes in our lives, but more often than not, we are matured and experienced enough to be able to deal with a lot of  issues and changes that are put in front of us. When you are 13 years old or there about whichever gender you are, be it a boy… [Read More]

Tomboy: Its Actually An Offensive Word If You Are Girl 

I recently read a post by my very good friend  Alan who blogs at OMG It’s A Girl called ‘Don’t call me tomboy’. It’s a truly brilliant post about his little girl. What I particularly like about the post is the history behind the word ‘tomboy’ and that it actually dated back to the 16th century, which as Alan said is where it belongs, completly right as well. Another blogger that I admire and have the utmost respect for is Simon who blogs at Man vs Pink. Simon has always written extensively about the gender stereotyping that is so prevalent towards our… [Read More]

My Wife is My Slave!

My wife is without question my slave. She is there to fulfil all my needs, look after me and my children, and never question me on anything. I am after all the bread winner. Without my money we could not live, it’s really as simple as that. So here is a list of what I expect as a husband and what I expect my wife to do… 1. I expect my tea ready on the table when I get in from work and no excuses if it is not. 2. My wife has to do everything for our children and… [Read More]

Its My 1,000th Post Today 

Today is my 1000th post and a very good friend of mine in the blogging world asked if I was going to write anything special. I never really thought about it, but hey ho, I will write about it in a blog post. Not very special I guess, but a milestone I decided was worth recording on my blog. This is my 1000th post and if I’m honest it’s frightening that I have managed to publish 1000 posts in about two and half years. When I started back in October 2014 I thought to myself I would post a couple… [Read More]

Blogging And The Use of Social Media 

I have been blogging for about two and a half years now and it’s always fascinated me the opinions of bloggers on how the use or abuse of social media should be used in relation to your blog. There are of course many reasons people blog. Some to make money, others to chronicle their children’s and family lives and undoubtedly some people just love to write and record their ramblings. I’m pretty sure I fall into all three of those categories, but ultimately I write because I love it and it’s my record for my children when I’m long gone…. [Read More]

How I Write A Blog Post 

Every day, hundreds of thousands of blog posts are written and published all over the world and I have always fascinated and been interested to know how people write blogs posts and where they get the inspiration from. Whether it’s a personal experience and just something they heard or saw, and that inspired them to write a post. There are I’m sure, a million and one reasons why people write posts. So for all of this I thought I would write down how I write a blog post. It may surprise you or you just may think well, that’s no… [Read More]
