What Is An Appropriate Age For Kids To Start Gaming?

This is something that has been on my mind for quite some time now. I have often wondered what is a suitable age for kids to start gaming of any sort. The main reason I wonder about this is because having been an avid gamer for many years, going way back to the GameBoy days, and eventually leading to Xbox, which was my preferred platform for gaming, I was without a doubt at a certain point obsessed with playing my Xbox. In fact I was so obsessed to the point where I even had the logo tattooed on my upper… [Read More]

Six Things Men Can Expect to Do When They Have Kids

When a man becomes a father, a lifestyle change is inevitable. This can be difficult for some men who are used to a certain way of life. Others will be excited for the change and embrace it; they will welcome a child. Either way, your life will never be the same again. And that could be a good thing. It could be a great thing!     Some men get so excited about being a parent, they record as much of their experiences as possible so that they can look back and see their child’s progression. They will also see… [Read More]

The Kitchen It’s The Hub Of Our Home

When I was growing up the one room that everybody in our home always congregated in was the kitchen. It was simply the hub of our home where everybody caught up with each other and chatted about their day and of course sat down for our evening meal together as a family. This is something that has now transferred to our home and our children. We often sit down and chat about the girls day at school, but the girls love to cook and the kitchen has consequently become an important room in our home now that I am a… [Read More]

Loft Conversion: We Need More Room!

We are currently living in a two bedroom detached bungalow. There are four of us living here; my wife, myself and our six year old twin girls. Obviously my wife and I share a bedroom. and our six year old twin girls also share a bedroom, but this is where the issue is. As the girls are growing up and their personalities and characters are changing and developing, it is becoming more obvious that they are wanting their own space. This means that the time has come to make some big decisions about our home. I think it’s safe to… [Read More]

In a recent survey carried out by Hoppy and YouGov… [Read More]

Getting Your Car Ready For Those Winter Months

Winter is nearly upon us and this gets me thinking that I need to sort out the cars and prepare them for those winter conditions. If I’m honest, I don’t particularly like driving, and like a lot of people I don’t relish driving when there is heavy rain, ice or snow on the ground. It’s very important that your car is in tip top condition to deal with whatever weather the winter months will bring. So I thought I would put together a checklist for your car to make sure you and your family are safe driving this winter. 1…. [Read More]

Year 2 And SATS: My Thoughts

My twin girls, R and M, have now been in year 2 for nearly a month, and already I’ve noticed a huge difference in both of them.   In their previous years they tended to have teachers that were for want of a better description, smiley and happy all the time, and most of their learning was done through play, but this has all changed since they started year 2. When we asked the girls what their new teacher is like, both of the girls replied saying she shouts a lot. Of course there is nothing wrong with a teacher… [Read More]
