Dad Blogger Round-up: Blogging, the latest fashion?

I know I’ve not been around for very long in comparison to some of the massively established bloggers.

It’s officially Summer Holiday time at long last and I’m hoping that that will mean plenty of hazy, lazy, crazy days with an abundance of alfresco eating and drinking.

Summer has finally arrived! If I’m honest it is currently throwing it down as I type this, but I refuse to be swayed. It is summer.  I know this because I have actual tan / sunburn lines from being busy applying sun-cream to small humans and forgetting myself. Congratulations is in order. As I’m sure […]

LOL Round-up: Kids TV

Kids TV is a wonderful thing.  It has entertained my children through tonsillitis and ear infections.  We would have literally gone crazy without it during the chickenpox captivity.  It ensures my kids don’t starve as I have become an expert in prepping dinner in the time it takes to watch two episodes of Peppa Pig.
