World Book Day With My 5 Year Old Twin Girls

It’s World Book Day on March 1st and my five year old twin girls are getting ready for it along with thousands of other children up and down the country. Their primary school every year makes a big effort to celebrate World Book Day. It’s almost part of their curriculum. The children are encouraged to dress up as their favourite character from their favourite book, and my five year old twin girls love to get in the spirit of celebrating in dressing up. My five year old twin girls are without question complete opposites, and when you see what they… [Read More]

When My Twins Were Born: I Finally Found Myself

When you are blessed to have twins, and believe me it is a blessing, it’s incredibly special knowing that you are a dad of twins. Two children born at the same time. It’s very hard to explain how you feel emotionally. That moment they’re born, and you become a daddy twice in two minutes. That feeling like a rabbit in the headlights often springs to mind. It is of course very special if you become a daddy to just one child, I also know that feeling three times over. Even though I was already a father of three children nothing… [Read More]

Making Mother’s Day A Special Day

Mother’s Day is always a very special day in our home. It’s a time when my five year old twin girls can really show how much they appreciate and love their mummy. Of course, I’m sure they appreciate and love her every day of the year, but on Mother’s Day they can pull out all the stops and spoil their mummy rotten. Up until this year I have always bought presents for their mum and wrapped them up and then given them to the girls on the morning of Mother’s Day to give to their mummy. This year I’ve decided… [Read More]

Following In Mummy’s Footsteps: My Sunday Photo

My Sunday photo this week is all about how my five year old twin girls are following in their mummy’s footsteps with their running, and how my wife is inspiring them to lead fit and healthy lives. In the month of January the girls entered a challenge which was called the 5 mile challenge. They completed it in great style and with total dedication. On Thursday they received  their medals in the post – this is their third medal for running and they are only five years old. On Friday they were lucky enough to show their medals at their… [Read More]

Biking and Fashion – Why you Always Need the Best Gear

Not only was the cult show ‘Sons of Anarchy’ one of the most popular series’ of recent times, it also raised the profile of biking and motorcycling across the globe. In fact, it did much to popularise biking in the modern age, while also reinforcing the innate sense of community that underpins relevant groups and chapters around the world. Fashion is a key element of biking in 2018, whether you’re part of an aforementioned group, plan to be one or simply want to look like a biker dude! In this post, we’ll ask why having the best gear is central… [Read More]

Summer Is Coming! Time To Prepare Your Garden with LOVEThESIGN

I have always thought that one of the most miserable months of the year is January. It has short days, and it seems forever overcast, with the sun no where in sight. However, even though it’s a cold, dark miserable month, that doesn’t mean you have to be miserable as well. With summer on the way back, you can start preparing your garden for those lovely months of warmer temperatures, long days and the sun shining all day. As I just mentioned even though it’s still winter, you can now start preparing your garden for those warm summer days and… [Read More]

Dad Bloggers Of The UK And The World Lets Unite Together

The dad bloggers of the UK, and the world are becoming, I have noticed, very united as a group that won’t possibly ever rival mum bloggers. However, we have finally become a force to be reckoned with, and that’s something I have not seen in the three and half years that I have been blogging. When I first started there was literally only a handful of dad bloggers that were mentioned or grouped with top mum bloggers, but I have noticed how that has now drastically changed. There are now many dad bloggers that are mentioned as great bloggers alongside… [Read More]

When Should We Expect Children To Become Responsible For Their Actions

Today’s children and young adults are increasingly not taking responsibility for their actions. You see this so often on TV, social media and in general life. My question is who’s fault is this? For not wanting to cause outrage, it’s us as parents. Many parents teach their children right from wrong from a very early and if they do something wrong they must face up to the fact that they need to take full responsibility. I know I have always tried to do that. Unfortunately many parents today just won’t accept that their children can do any wrong. This is… [Read More]
