Taking Care Of Yourself After Having A Baby

I see plenty of advice saying that mums need to remember to look after themselves during the postpartum period. But what about us dads? Now, I’m not for one minute suggesting that mums don’t need to take care of themselves or that dads have had it as tough as mums. Anatomy means that they’ve either […]

6 Things To Do With Kids On Holiday In Helsinki

Having visited the Nordic Countries of Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark on previous holidays, it was only a matter of time before we ticked off Finland. This happened over the weekend as we headed to Helsinki for a couple of days to explore what the city offered for families with young kids. Since becoming parents, […]

Review & Giveaway: A Family Day Out At Rand Farm Park, Lincolnshire

Finding places and attractions to visit that cater for the entire family can often be tricky. It’s not often you can find somewhere that has appeal for both kids and adults, however we recently visited Rand Farm Park near Lincoln (website) which did exactly that.

Review: Britax-Römer DUALFIX i-SIZE Extended Rear Facing Car Seat

Back in late 2017, I heard a few murmurings about a new, extended-rear facing, i-SIZE compliant car seat being launched by Britax Römer. This got me very – and probably more than I should be – excited because I’m a huge fan of their DUALFIX car seat, which I’ve reviewed here. It turns out that my […]

Review: Feeling Grand In The Vauxhall Grandland X (Elite Nav 1.6 TD)

As a family fortunate enough to regularly drive new cars through the missus’ work company car scheme, I like to think that I’ve learnt one or two things about cars. Sure, I don’t *really* know what a lot of the numbers mean or how a car actually functions, but I’ve been behind the wheel of […]

Review: HP Envy Photo 7830 Wireless All-In-One Printer And HP Instant Ink

Over the last few months, I’ve been working with HP on their #ReinventMemories campaign, which is all about transforming digital moments into tangible memories. I’ve already written about capturing and remembering these special memories from Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas, so now comes the turn of actually reviewing the kit we’ve been using – namely […]

Review: A Connected Smart Home With Hive

However, I do enjoy the practicalities of technology – how can I use things to make our lives easier, less […]
