School Run Tips

One of the most hectic times in our home is the morning. Getting ready for school generally speaking is not hassle free, but it can be made easier, so I thought I would share a few tips to make the ever so wonderful school run a little less stressful. It works for us and it would be a rarity for us to be late for school. Between the hours of 7.30am and 8.30am on a school day, our home can be chaotic! This is usually down to the fact that we’re about to enter the toughest part of the school… [Read More]

As A Parent We…

As a parent sometimes we get it right, sometimes we get wrong. Sometimes our judgement is wrong, as of course we can judge it just right. As a parent we sign up to help love and care for our children until they become adults and we are no longer needed on a daily basis. As a parent we argue and disagree with our children and then of course we have laughter and fun with them. As a parent we try our best to help our children achieve their dreams. Trying always to remember it’s their dreams they must follow not… [Read More]

Why My Six Year Old Twins And Myself Should Be Embracing Technology #ad

We live in a world where technology is constantly in the background helping us live our lives. Whether it’s catching a train where your ticket is available on your phone or going to the supermarket where you can paid for your goods using your phone. It really is a far cry from when I was young and just about everything was paid for in cash. The world really has moved on.

Will Women Be Getting A Better Deal By The Time My Twins Finish School?

Our twin girls, R & M will be seven years old on their next birthday which is in February, by which time they will be halfway through Year 2 which is also their final year in infants, before moving on to junior school. Before I know it, they will be in secondary school and preparing for university. It sounds crazy I know, but it will be around in the blink of an eye. Recently the UK had a visit from the current president of the United States of America. The protest against his visit was immense and I hope that… [Read More]

Oh Yes! Back To School Today

Well the summer holidays just flew by in a flash. I cannot believe my six year old twin girls will be back in school in just a few days. It is actually scary how quickly the last six weeks have gone by and I have never known the summer holidays to go so quickly. This was a moment to cherish forever I could say I have survived the summer holidays, but the truth is I haven’t. I have found the summer holidays to be one of the most enjoyable six weeks of my life. I’m not entirely sure why it’s… [Read More]

Sunbed Stampede

We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Menorca, (full holiday post will be coming later this week), but I thought this deserved a separate post of its own. Mainly because I have never in my life experienced the stampede at a time when you should still be asleep on holiday. The time in question was 6am. Yes, you read right. OMG! 6am! On our first morning I thought nothing of sunbeds because we arrived at around 11am and we decided to stay by the pool. I casually mentioned to my wife as we were walking passed the sunbeds… [Read More]

Are My Six Year Old Twin Girls Lucky Or Spoilt?

My wife and I are both bloggers, and if I say so myself we have both been relatively successful, and the income from both our blogs has enabled us to enjoy some extra luxuries in life, that I severely doubt we would have been able to do or afford otherwise. The reason behind this is because they run in conjunction with our other jobs that we both still do. We both work very hard like I know many other people do up and down the country. Are we going to be millionaires anytime soon? No, not a chance, but the… [Read More]

Don’t Listen To So Called Parenting Experts: Do It Your Way

The internet, social media and blogging is full of advice about the right or wrong way to be a parent, of which the only useful tips you could write on a postage stamp. Being a father of five children I have long since given up listening or believing anything that is written about how to parent, simply because I follow my own instincts and will always go with my initial gut instinct because after 23 years of parenting I have come to the conclusion that my gut instinct will be invariably right. Although I would be the first to admit… [Read More]
