Controlling My Medication With My PlanSmart Medication Chart

Since I had a stroke a couple of months ago there have been changes that I have had to make to lots of aspects of my life and lifestyle. Changes that I didn’t think I was going to be making, but if I want to keep going a bit longer and watch all of my children grow up and settle in their lives, it simply was a no-brainer. One of first things that needed changing was to give up smoking. This has not been an easy task for me, because I’m a life long smoker, but thankfully where I live… [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. But as they grow, your undivided attention makes you forget about the attention that you should be giving yourself. You might walk around the… [Read More]

Capturing Those Magical Images When Your Baby Has Arrived

After nine months of pregnancy and waiting for your baby to be born, once your new baby has entered the world, life is turned on its head and time becomes a premium because you simply don’t have enough time to do anything.

Blogging What Defines Success?

Blogging has in my opinion many different levels of success, and that success is different to each blogger, but as blogging has become a bigger and bigger industry many people are entering into the blogosphere believing that success is measured by how much money you can earn. Although I understand that can be the way it’s seen, it’s actually a massive misconception I believe. Bloggers in my humble opinion can define success in so many different ways. You may very well blog as a hobby and you are happy that people are reading your ramblings. I read many blogs that… [Read More]

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. If your house is not flooded, or you do not see mold or water slipping through the cracks, then your home is not wet, right? In reality, that may not be true. 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]

Disneyland Paris My Sunday Photo

My Sunday Photo this week is two photos from our recent trip to Disneyland Paris. We had a fantastic time for seven days and we arrived on the same day that the Marvel Superheroes of summer season started. There was without doubt so many highlights, but without question the one person that made the biggest impression for my six year old twin girls was the one and only Captain America. They absolutely loved him and this was our second meet and greet with him which also included meeting Thor, although he didn’t get a look in with the girls as… [Read More]
