Where Are All The Stay-At-Home Dads On Film And TV?

Sometimes an idea for a blog post doesn’t quite go as you intended. This is one of those occasions. You see, as a SAHD with nearly two years under my (ever-expanding) belt, I thought it’d be good to write a post to highlight other stay-at-home dads on film and TV. A kind of celebration of all the […]

Review: Our Tiny Knights Midweek Break At Warwick Castle

As a family always keen to find new places to visit and explore, I was chuffed to be asked to be a blogging ambassador for Warwick Castle during 2017. I’ve only ever been there once before – back in 2006 ish when the missus and I were fresh faced, less grey and enjoyed copious amounts […]

Update: How Does Our Garden Grow? #SowAndGrowUK

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about our involvement in innocent and GIY’s (Grow It Yourself) Sow And Grow campaign. Working with thousands of schools across the UK, the aim is to encourage kids to grow their own fruit and veg in the classroom so that they better understand where their food comes from. […]

The Rise Of Toddler L And The Fluffy Crew

Throughout history, there have been some notorious gangs. The meanest of the mean. The baddest of the bad. The toughest of the tough. I’m not going to list them all, but names such as The Thompson Gang, The Medellin Cartel, The Aryan Brotherhood, 18th Street Gang, Katrina And The Waves and Rastamouse & Da Easy Crew, […]

‘Posh’ Toddler-Friendly Cottage Pie Recipe For British Pie Week

Does anyone else remember when a Tuesday just used to be a Tuesday? Or when a random week during March was just that? These days though, it seems like every day, week and month has been claimed by an organisation to promote, raise awareness or celebrate something different. Whilst the majority of these things pass by […]

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, […]

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 […]
