Video Special: I find out what bad driving habits I’ve passed down to my daughter with Ageas #ad

I have always thought that I was a good driver. Maybe not the best in the world, but I consider myself to be safe and aware of any potential dangers on the road. I have always tried to observe and have full concentration whilst driving, but I recently found out how wrong I was! When I was approached by Ageas to be filmed whilst not only whilst I was driving, but also with 20 year old daughter driving too, I was curious to see the results! Even though it’s been three years since she passed her driving test she has… [Read More]

It’s Time To Treat Yourself For Once!

We need to start off by saying, there is no doubt at all that becoming a father is one of the best things that will ever happen/has happened to you in your life. The joy you’ll feel knowing that you’ve got a little boy or girl that is yours, and the love you will feel is like nothing else.

How Could Damp in Your Home Affect Your Health?

Many people believe that if you cannot see, hear, or smell the problem, then it is not really a problem at all.

Even if your home is not wet to the point where you can see water pooling, it may still be damp if not properly insulated, and that in itself can pose a problem. In a place like Texas, where when it rains, it pours, you will definitely want to consult with… [Read More]

IVF And Men

My six year old twin girls were born after my wife and I went through a cycle of IVF. I have to say that I have always felt incredibly lucky that on our very first try we got pregnant with twins, especially when you hear of the heartbreak that many couples go through, and numerous cycles they endure. It’s tough emotionally, but also financially when so often it sadly ends in failure. Strangely one of the feelings I felt at the time was one of guilt that we had been not only been fortunate to get pregnant, but getting pregnant… [Read More]
