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. From the moment they’re born, they’ll have your undivided attention, and you might think nothing of it.

Disneyland Paris Here We Come!

We’re going to Disneyland Paris, and I seriously cannot wait! It’s just over a year since we last went and from the moment I left, I couldn’t wait to go back! Last year we went for 4/5 days, and this year we are going for 7/8 days. The main reason why we are going for longer is because it went so quick last year and I left feeling I had missed so much. Even though it’s not much longer it will hopefully give us a more relaxed pace to the holiday, because knowing we had only four or so days… [Read More]

Just When I Thought Family Couldn’t Hurt Me Anymore This Happens!

Well here is a story which would be difficult to make up. Just when I thought my original family couldn’t leave me bruised and hurt anymore than they already have, they just have again, and it’s left me thinking that you can’t pick your family, but you sure as hell can pick your friends. I have a biological brother that went to the other side of the world well over 40 years ago and it’s about 30 years or more since we have seen each other. We have had very sporadic contact over the years, and the last time any… [Read More]

The sun is shining which means it’s time to get out in the garden! I have teamed up with Chad Valley and Argos which means that I’m part of their #PlayPanel.
