The best lies our children tell..

The best lies our children tell..

They don’t know they’re doing it most of the time but children have an incredible knack of telling lies. Got me thinking what are the most common lies they tell so I started a list .. “I don’t need to go to the toilet” . Yes the old classic, you know that within the first mile in the car they’ll need the loo. Taking the P, quite literally! “It wasn’t me” yes another corker, usually heard as they hold something…

Is there a “right” time to have children?

Is there a “right” time to have children?

I was at a party (yes I know I got out to a party!) recently and got chatting to someone I hadn’t seen in a long while. Roughly the same age as me. I asked who was minding his children to which he told me they were now in their late teens, early twenties! Wow wow wow, stop right there! How did that happen, more importantly when did that happen? We chatted some more and he told me about his…

My perfectly imperfect blog and blogging envy!

My perfectly imperfect blog and blogging envy!

Greetings, During my time away from blogging there were a few issues which affected me coming back. Firstly there was web hosting service shutting my blog down due to high data usage, ironic in that it wasn’t actually active at the time. Fixed that then there was a virus on my blog so it was shut down again, seriously, it was more hassle when I left it inactive than it was even I was using it.. Maybe it’s like a…

A visit to the obnoxious little porker aka Peppa pig world!

A visit to the obnoxious little porker aka Peppa pig world!

​Peppa world, the world of the obnoxious little porker we all have a love hate relationship with as she entertains our children in her cheeky petulant way. So why did we go? Well for our children of course! For me the thought of spending 6 hours, yes 6 hours in the surroundings of the pink piggy is enough to make me throw up. But off we went from our holiday home, Sarah’s words, in the Cotswolds down south for nearly…

Responsibility for irresponsible parenting?

Responsibility for irresponsible parenting?

So when do you step in? Keeping a watchful eye on our children 24/7 is tough, I think we would all agree on that. They move with lighting pace (apart from when you’re in a rush) and in a blink of an eye they’re away leaving you in a blind panic. They also don’t have much sense and will often find themselves in an equal amount of funny and potentially dangerous situations. What prompted this you ask? Well I was…

Dad goals and the importance of sticking to them!

Dad goals and the importance of sticking to them!

As I stepped out of the swimming pool having struggled to swim more than a couple of full-lengths I thought to myself why bother, why am I doing this what’s the point? I mean I am a 40 year old man with better things to be doing. So why exactly am I doing it? I’ve two children at home, limited sleep and no regular pattern in daily life as yet? Ironically that’s exactly why I was doing it in the…

“Meternity”, a typing mistake or just generally a mistake? I`m not so sure..

“Meternity”, a typing mistake or just generally a mistake? I`m not so sure..

I recently watched an article on this morning about a lady who had written a fictional book in which it appeared she was saying that women should be allowed some “me” time from their employers and change this the name “meternity” . Covered widely in UK press as seen here in the mirror Mirror coverage Personally I thought it sounded ridiculous to start with and wouldn’t normally give oxygen to such stories but then I listened and whilst I still…
