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]

Home Management And Finding The Right TradesPerson With Hoppy #AD

Managing your home and all the things you have to sort out can cause a lot of stress, especially if both of you are working full-time, have children and are constantly trying to sort out child care. Then you also have to factor in getting the shopping done and making sure the kids get to school on time. In addition to this, you then need to somehow try and find time to do those jobs around the home, and if all that doesn’t stress you, well you must be superhuman. 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]

The Importance Of SEO For My Blog

If someone told me when I first started blogging about just how much work was involved, I would have laughed, and been convinced that they’re lying. The truth is blogging is hugely time consuming. It all starts with writing a blog post. You hope it’s interesting and engaging, but even if it is well written and interesting that does not guarantee that it will be read. It takes a little bit more than that. One part of blogging that was actually quite difficult for me to understand and be able to use well was SEO. I had heard the expression… [Read More]

Christmas Suits Oh Yes! Let’s Get Festive #AD

I make no secret of the fact that Christmas is easily my favourite time of the year. I love the dark nights and Christmas lights lighting up homes all over the city. The city centre is always very festive and in our city we have the winter wonderland which we always visit for ice skating with our six year twin girls. It’s also one of only a few occasions during the year that we all get together as a family, and for me what makes it very special is that I get to have my five children around me if… [Read More]

My Wife And My Daughter Run The Cardiff Half Marathon

A few days ago my wife and daughter ran the Cardiff half marathon together and it made me feel very proud that they pushed themselves to run 13 miles. It really is an awesome achievement and there is no doubt that it should not be underrated exactly how tough it is because it is without question a fantastic thing to do. For me it’s actually difficult to fully understand how hard and tough it is because I have never been a runner, and if I’m honest I would struggle to run 1km before collapsing in a heap on the ground… [Read More]
