Sports Day : Competitive Or Non Competitive

It’s that time of the year when primary and junior schools will be holding their sports day, and as per usual it will bring up the subject of whether they should be competitive or non-competitive.

I have watched episodes of the show and on most occasions somewhere in the show I feel uncomfortable with the way guests are treated by the host, Jeremy Kyle.

Press Trip: Oakwood Theme Park

Yesterday we had the pleasure of visiting Oakwood, the largest theme park in Wales. It was a beautiful sunny day and blue skies for as far as you could see.

I have been to Oakwood before about 10 years ago and experienced the thrills and spills of the rollercoaster. Sadly my experience of… [Read More]

Fatherhood: It’s Tough At Times
