…And We’re Off To Wembley!

Parenting is full of milestones. One that I was able to tick off with L the other weekend was her first, proper football match as we headed down to Wembley to watch England vs Germany in an International Women’s Friendly.

If there’s one thing that gets me excited, it’s smart home technology. As a thirty-something, home-owning, tech-savvy dad, that’s probably not too surprising! Over the last few years – and thanks largely to this blog – I’ve been able to get up close and personal with a fair number of smart home solutions geared at […]
