Nursery… One year on

February 16th 2017. On this day, one year ago, I was lost without my little sidekick. My little cling on was at nursery. It was the first time I had left her for more than a few hours with someone who wasn’t her daddy. And I missed her more than I …

My Sunday Photo 19/02/2017

Spike’s Footballing Fun – A Diddikicks Review

Before she was born, my aim was to get Spike involved in lots of activities to keep her stimulated. I was looking into what age gymnastics could start before she could roll over. And I’m still determined not to make her wait until she’s 5 before she rock climbs! Football was …

Parenthood: Summed up in one image

Usually, I’m not usually one for airing my dirty laundry in public. However, as I wandered down my stairs last night I had to chuckle. I had to take a picture because this image, to me, sums up parenthood perfectly. There’s the baby monitor, to listen out for Spike stirring. …
