My Top Fears And Worries As A New Parent

Generally, I wouldn’t class myself as a worrier. Sure, there have been things throughout my life that I’ve worried about, but I’ve always tried to take the approach of ‘what’s the point of stressing over something if I can’t do anything about it?’. Since becoming a parent though, I definitely worry more than I used […]

Finding Out What’s In Baby And Toddler Snacks

It’s common knowledge that certain foods aren’t great for us – it doesn’t take a genius to understand that ice-cream, chocolate or fizzy drinks are full of sugar and should only be eaten in moderation (sorry to break it to you if you didn’t…). But what about other foods? Those that we perceive to be good […]

3 Child-Friendly Meals Rich In Omega-3

As a busy family, trying to find that balance between taste, convenience and nutritional value is a challenge. Sure, we’d all like to eat home-cooked meals every night that are packed with everything – and more – of what we need each day, but that’s not always practical when you have young kid(s) and are […]

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 […]

Surviving Mealtimes With A Toddler

In my three and a bit years as a dad, I’d probably say that the constant battle between child and food has been the most challenging. I use “challenging”, but I could easily substitute that with “annoying”, “infuriating” or “exasperating” – I could also chuck in a few swear words for good measure, but I’ll […]

Bonfire Night 2017: Bonfires, Fireworks And Sparklers

Ooooh. Aaaah. Eeeee. Don’t worry, I’ve not pulled my ageing back. That is, in fact, me reliving Bonfire Night from the other week. One of my favourite nights of the year, is there anything better than marvelling at the colours, shapes and sounds in the sky as people literally blow (up) their money. Let’s go […]

Tirelessly Testing All Season Tyres With Goodyear – Gripping Stuff!

Back in October, I was invited to a press event with Goodyear. This marked two pretty cool blogging firsts for me – (1) it was my first overseas trip thanks to the blog, and (2) I was no longer just a blogger, but in fact deemed worthy of the moniker “press” – next stop The […]

Sharing My Parenting Super Powers

In the world of Superheroes, something that strikes me as strange is that not many seem to be parents. You might think that this is because they’re too busy saving the world and generally putting their lives at risk. But I have another theory – is it actually because they lack the specific Super Powers […]
