We’re All Going On A European City Break Holiday

Much like Sir Cliff, we enjoy a holiday. When it comes to getting away, the missus and I have been to quite a few different places in the 11 years we’ve been together. We’re not a frugal family, but we rarely splash the cash willingly – the only exception is probably holidays where we’ve spent […]

Baby Swimming Versus Toddler Swimming

In a few weeks time, it will be Toddler L’s two-year anniversary since she first went swimming. Sure, it may not be up there with other special events such as birthdays, wedding anniversaries and Christmases – I doubt that Hallmark are busy creating “Happy Toddler Swimming Anniversary” greetings cards, for instance. Although if they do, […]

Win Waitrose Cookery School Experience With Ella’s Kitchen Little Foodies

Assuming that your toddler is like ours, food plays an important part in their life. Chances are, if they’re not eating it, then they’re asking to eat it, talking about having eaten it or are playing imaginary games which features eating it. What’s more, I’ve noticed over the last month or so that Toddler L’s […]

Things To Do With A Toddler In Dacorum, Hertfordshire And Buckinghamshire

Since becoming a stay-at-home dad nearly two years ago, I’ve found that my days are pretty different to the pre-kid days. Hardly surprising, I know. But what this has meant is that I’ve needed to tap into a whole different world of baby and toddler related activities that I never knew about before. As a […]

Review: SmarTrike T3 2-Stage Kids 3-Wheel Scooter (Purple)

Over the last few years, I’ve noticed more and more kids – and adults – flying around on the human-powered contraptions known as scooters. It’s not been something that’s ever interested me personally – mainly because you look like a right dick when you’re an adult – but it’s something we’ve considered for Toddler L. […]

Taking The Sides Off Toddler L’s Cot Bed

Last night saw another landmark in the life of Toddler L. It may not be up there with the more ‘glamorous’ milestones such as crawling, walking or talking, but I think it’s significant nonetheless. As given away by the title of the post, yesterday I removed the sides from Toddler L’s cot bed. Dun dun dunnnn! […]

How Does Our Garden Grow? #SowAndGrowUK

You know something that I never thought would interest me? Gardening and growing my own vegetables. As a kid, I remember my folks had a veggie patch – eating peas straight from the pod is a vivid childhood memory – and my Grandma still spends the vast majority of her time in the garden despite approaching […]

10 More Ridiculous Reasons Why My Toddler Had A Tantrum

A few months ago, I wrote a post about Toddler L’s tantrums. In the imaginatively named 15 ridiculous reasons why my toddler had a tantrum, I explored some of the laughable situations which caused the sprog to have a shit fit. We’re talking things like me confiscating the tampons she’d found in the bathroom or the time I […]

Review: Smart Men’s Flowers – Flower Delivery Made Simple

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, my thoughts have turned to that age old dilemma of what to buy the missus. As we’re just about to hit our 11th year together, it’s hardly surprising that I ran out of ideas of what to get her for birthdays, Christmases and Valentine’s Days a number of […]
