Dad AF #letstalkdad

I am very proud and honoured to be a partner in a brand new App and website that is completely dedicated to dads called Dad AF. Going back some months ago I was approached and asked if I would like to be part of a brand new app that will hopefully enable dads to talk and ask questions. I instantly thought yes! I love this idea! A website/app which is purely for dads to talk and seek advice and ask questions that they wouldn’t maybe ordinarily ask. It is also a place that if dad’s are struggling with fatherhood they… [Read More]

How To Make The Best Man Cave

Finding some personal space in today’s world can be tough, especially if you have kids running circles around you from the minute you arrive home from work. Often even a moment’s peace enjoyed on the toilet doesn’t go interrupted! So, when you get the opportunity to create your own ‘man cave’, the ideas and designs that rush into your head can give you very high expectations that your DIY skills just can’t match up to. The chance to make your own space can be really exciting, and that excitement can return each time you enter if it’s done properly. Luckily,… [Read More]

Can’t We Just All Be Dads?

Well! 2018 has been a year where the role of the dad has been re-defined, re-labelled and now there are multiple choices if you are dad of what you can call yourself. You can be a stay home at dad, a working dad, a dad blogger, instadad, a gay dad, a dad that can show emotion, a dad that is cool or more than likely uncool, seriously what dad is cool according to his children?! For me all these labels that we are calling dads is ludicrous and quite honestly ridiculous, and 2018 it has completely gone over the top… [Read More]

The Importance Of Having A Dad in Your life

When I was eight years old my father left the family home and I was left to be raised by my mum. It is only now after many years and after having five children of my own that I have realised how important it is to have not only a mum, but also a dad in your life. When you’re a child and growing up, quite simply the dynamics of growing up require both parents to influence how you will grow up and impact on many decisions you make in life.

Take the #TyreChallenge

I’ve been driving for over 30 years, and in that time, you would think that I would know a fair bit about driving. Especially when you consider that I also used to work in a garage! However, I recently took the Kwik Fit #TyreChallenge, which is an online quiz, and I was really surprised by my lack of tyre knowledge. Out of 10 questions, I got just 3 correct answers. I drive my car every day. To work, to the children’s school, to the shops etc, and I’ve even driven long distances from my home in Cardiff to the likes… [Read More]

Keep Yourself An Updated Dad

It’s important to know how to remain in the present. While we’re always going to be a child from a certain era, that doesn’t’ mean we cannot refine, update or develop ourselves to stay competent and available in the present moment. Keeping yourself an updated Dad is not something to care for so you’re children are less embarrassed when you’re dropping them off at the front gate of school. It’s more for yourself, and for your family. Staying competent and able to adapt to the modern day is something that is often not appreciated enough in those who are middle-aged. Remember,… [Read More]
