Creating Memories With My-Picture.co.uk #AD Competition Win £50 Voucher

One of the things that I love to do is look at old photographs. They instantly re-create in my mind the memory of that special moment in which the photograph was taken. There really is nothing quite like holding a physical copy of a photograph. Today with the smart phone those times seem to have changed and I’m sure, like me, you have thousands of photos on your phone and scrolling through them all can be a painstaking job just so that you can find the right photo you want to see. So when I was recently approached by My-Picture.co.uk… [Read More]

Dino Ranger Treasure Hunt Review Easter Holiday Activities #AD

We have just started our Easter break and when you have seven year old twin girls my thoughts always turn to activities that I think the girls would enjoy.

The Easter egg hunt is of course a tradition in our household, and this is great, but it would be nice to add a little bit of a different slant to the… [Read More]

Neveo Monthly Family Journal Review #AD

The world we now live in is actually in some ways getting smaller. Families can be spread all over the globe, and there are a variety of reasons for this. It could be because of job opportunities, the chance of a better lifestyle, or simply to make a fresh start. So often many families have grandparents or parents still living in their hometown, but quite often children also have grandparents living in far flung parts of the globe. With the advancement of technology it’s now easier than ever to keep in touch. That’s why when I was recently approached by… [Read More]

Christmas Suits Oh Yes! Let’s Get Festive #AD

I make no secret of the fact that Christmas is easily my favourite time of the year. I love the dark nights and Christmas lights lighting up homes all over the city.

It’s also one of only a few occasions during the year that we all get together as a family, and for me what makes it very special is that I get to have my five children around me if… [Read More]

Dads Don’t Babysit: Towards Equal Parenting

Having been a father to 5 kids over 2 decades, I’ve seen a lot of attitudes about parenthood and what dads can do in the family change.

My kids and I have benefited so much from me being able to spend a lot of quality time with them, not to mention the benefits for my wife too! Our relationship is better and I feel more fulfilled knowing that I’m an equal parent with my… [Read More]
