Exploring The Gruffalo Spotters Trail At Wendover Woods

A family took a stroll through the deep dark Wendover Woods… If you can forgive me for butchering one of the (probably) most famous opening lines in children’s book history, then let me share our recent adventure in search of The Gruffalo. Toddler L loves all things Gruffalo. We read the book – and Gruffalo’s Child – […]

Review: Water Babies Toddler Swimming Lessons (Chapter 7)

It only feels like the other day, but it was actually a year ago that I last wrote a specific review about our Water Babies swimming lessons. At that time, we – or should that be Toddler L – had completed Chapter 4 and was having an absolute blast in the pool. As tends to happen with […]

Mugging Off Dads: “It’s Not Easy Being A Mother…”

The missus WhatsApp’d me a photo the other day out of the blue. I’ll admit, it shocked and surprised me as she’d never sent me anything like it before. Her snap was dirty, rude, obscene and pure filth. After a few seconds of trying to comprehend what I was looking at, the image had the affect […]

We’re Konfidence Child Swimologists (Plus Win £50 Swimwear Voucher)

One of the things I most look forward to each week is our swimming classes. We’ve been frolicking in the pool for just over two years now and it’s something both Toddler L and I really enjoy. Seeing how much she’s developed during this time is pretty incredible. As much as I’d like to, I […]

Why, Why, Why? Entering The Toddler Question Phase

Toddler L has recently hit the question phase. Pretty much everything she says is some kind of question. Whether it’s enquiring about the world around her, questioning our authority or just being annoying, “why” has very quickly made it to the top of her favourite words list. In fact, I’d hazard a guess at it […]

Taking Part In The ‘No Morning Coffee Challenge’ With Berocca

It’s pretty well-known that having a baby is knackering. I don’t think anyone goes into parenthood without an inclination that their sleep will be majorly impacted. What people don’t tell you though is that this doesn’t get any better as your kid gets older. Sorry to ruin any hope for you newbie parents. Even though Toddler […]

Toddler L Isn’t Yet Potty About Toilet Training

In June last year, we made our first tentative steps into the unknown world of potty training. Actually, that’s a slight lie as I’ve successfully been potty trained for around 30 years – despite the odd little accident. To rephrase, it was our first tentative steps into the unknown world of potty training since becoming […]

Celebrating The Best Of Times With Kettler Plus Everdure FORCE Barbecue Giveaway

I’m no philosopher – shock horror! – but I see life as a series of moments. Some good, some bad, quite a lot of meh. Either way, when we look back, it’s those happy moments we remember and cherish so fondly. I’ve therefore teamed up with Kettler to celebrate the best of times and help […]

Raising The Steaks With Iceland’s Churrasco BBQ Meat Range

With summer approaching, I’m already salivating at the prospect of BBQ after BBQ after BBQ – the amount of times I’ve had to wipe my chin already is ridiculous. I know it’s a proper British cliché, but I love those days when the sun is out, there’s meat on the grill and you’re hanging out with […]
