Looking around at what the dad bloggers have been writing, it’s quite clear most have been enjoying the summer. There are loads of posts about holidays and days out.

Dads Round-Up: Baby it’s cold outside…

“Oh the weather outside is frightful…” Forgive me. I’ve sung a song associated with that most wonderful Christmas time of the year and we’re still hanging around the entrance to November.

Dads Round-up: Hot, isn’t it?

There’s nothing I love more than a summer heatwave. Thing is, I don’t like it so much in summer. Hot innit? I keep wandering around muttering something about the heat, and then simply falling over.

Good eh? You can also have a […]

Dads Round-Up: Food, food glorious food!

‘Food, food, glorious food! What is there more handsome, gulped, swallowed or chewed?’ So the song asks. Stop sniggering at the back. It’s you isn’t it? It’s always you with the smutty mind. See me after class. Anyway, as I was about to say. Food eh? Lovely stuff. Food isn’t always merely something to shovel […]

Dads Round-Up: Is anyone out there?

We’ve all got to start somewhere. You write your first blog posts, link them to your Twitter account and hope that someone will read the thing you spent all that time writing. Sometimes people just blog to get the thoughts out and don’t care about stats and numbers but, truly, it’s wonderful to get feedback […]

Dads Round-up: Depression and Scooby snacks

I’ve had a hard time recently with my depression. But by blogging about it I’ve felt the support and comforting words of many. In some way, I felt better for getting my thoughts out there, however black and bleak they’ve been. Writing it all down and reading people’s comments on my posts and their experiences […]

Dad Bloggers Round-up: Fashionable, fit & zombies

  It is interesting how relatively small changes can have a radical effect on your life as a parent.  In my case the return of my wife to university, meaning that my household duties have increased somewhat, and the progression of our eldest daughter to high school, have caused a pretty manic month.  Actually the high […]
