There’s a definite theme occurring that I can’t help but dispute. Almost each and every time a member of the public stops to talk to Robbie, they refer to him as a ‘little angel.’ Of course, I always give the typical parent reply of “you should see him at home” or something along those lines.Continue reading “Who’s the angel? Robbie versus Daddy”
So here we are back in lockdown and to be honest, I’m looking forward and hoping the next few weeks are better than the last.Continue reading “A new adventure”
Like so many others this year, our Summer holiday had to be cancelled and sunny Spain will have to wait a while longer. Our little man deserved a holiday though, so we rented a caravan for a weekend in Yarmouth at Cherry tree park.Continue reading “Cherry Tree Caravan Park in Yarmouth”
Now I realise that most of you reading this post will have absolutely no idea what that title means and I must admit, I only learnt myself last week. My little old blog is less than a year old so this is my first October as a blogger.Continue reading “Blogtober is here!”
Last month after one hangover too many I took the decision that it was time for a break from alcohol. It’s now been just under a month and tomorrow marks the end of my detox so I thought it time to have a look at the results.
Well that’s another week over with and I’m actually pretty glad to see the end of this one. I’m not really that keen on being busy and things have been far too hectic for my liking. From Robbie waking up with a temperature last Sunday things went downhill pretty fast.Continue reading “Covid, birthdays and detoxes”
Dear Mr Liver,
We seem to have a bit of a problem recently and I feel it is time we addressed some issues rather than continuing the pointless battle between us in which their are no winners, just losers.Continue reading “An open letter to my liver”
Monday is the big day. The tiny little monster that we created will be celebrating his 2nd birthday and we can’t wait to make it as special as we can for him.Continue reading “Back to reality – It’s birthday time!”
Don’t be fooled by the picture, this post really is not all about Robbie. Today is MY day and this post is all about me!Continue reading “Today’s the day”
I’m still working on convincing Robbie of the importance of football. Though many would argue that there are far more important life skills to be teaching a one year old boy, my focus on prioritising such aspects has always been a little off key.Continue reading “Guest Post – Oli Harris”
It’s a pretty big week for me. Though it may seem that very little is actually happening, I have two major landmarks in my life this week.Continue reading “From yesterday, to tomorrow”
A couple of weeks I created a post that I thoroughly enjoyed writing. I was looking back and reflecting on all of the changes in Robbie since isolation began and how much I was looking forward to showing him off to friends and family.Continue reading “Don’t be offended, it’s just writer’s block”
A few of you may have noticed that this poor little blog has been rather neglected recently. It’s been around three weeks since I last posted but there has been a very good reason for that… Nothing had happened.
There is always such excitement when a friend or family member has a new baby. It is often the case that people want to bring gifts to meet the new arrival and these post looks at how to get presents that the parents really want.
We’ve all been there, those uncontrollable moments of sheer rage coming from our usually cute little angels. Often caused by something completely trivial met with the kind of reaction you may expect having told them they will never eat chocolate again.Continue reading “Parenting tips on controlling a toddler tantrum”
It may feel like we have been trapped indoors forever, but it has only been a few weeks. Our little man has already grown out of a few of his toys and the pressure is on for us to keep him entertained until the world opens up again.
About a year ago I found myself in a desperate position. Things at work had taken a serious turn for the worse and I found myself in a position where I felt I had no choice but to find a new career.Continue reading “What makes me proud?”
It’s been a pretty quiet week for us. Not in the sense of decibel levels which have been through the roof with Robbie’s constant screaming and shouting, more in the sense that nothing much has really happened.Continue reading “Who wants cookies?”
I’m not sure who created this idea or where it come from but I love it. A simple concept among UK bloggers to share a little happiness in some pretty tough times for us all.Continue reading “My isolation silver linings”
I have never been a religious man. That is not to say I do not believe in some greater power, I just have no idea what it is. Today though, we have seen a miracle on Good Friday right inside our own home.Continue reading “An Easter Miracle”
