The day my world ended

27 January will always be a weird day for me. I was reminded of it this year by a Facebook Memories thing, which showed a picture I shared on 27 January 2016 of the time I was doing some laundry, ran out of blue Bold so mixed in some pink Bold like a real rebel.... Continue Reading →

Hurry up and meet her, Dad!

Recently I was lucky enough to go to New Orleans for work. We headed out there early, spent a few days doing tourist and culture stuff (ie drinking heavily) before doing a little work (and more drinking). Meant that I didn't see my kids for a little longer than normal, and so when I returned... Continue Reading →

Parental Logistics Suck

I used to joke that my first child changed everything, but after that the rest were simply a matter of logistics. It's sort of true; the first time you do it, everything about your life changes. You go from only being responsible for yourself to having another human life entirely and utterly dependant upon you.... Continue Reading →

Emotional hills

When I was about 15 years old I was a bit of an athlete. I was one of those annoying kids who just found it relatively easy to do the basics well enough for cricket, football, running and more, so was on all the school teams and competed loads. At one cross country race we... Continue Reading →

Being better, not bitter

It appears to be a truism, that after adultery the guilty party walks away winning, leaving their partner with no relationship, self-doubt, low self-esteem, trust issues and all sorts of other problems. There are pithier ways of saying it, but it's rarely the "victim" that comes out on top, at least in the short to... Continue Reading →

How to break up with someone

It takes a lot to decide that a relationship is over, and if both of you haven't come to the same conclusion at the same time then it's going to be tough. Having "The Talk" isn't something that is entered into lightly, at least not if... Continue Reading →

Taking advice

I am good at many things. Putting together flat pack furniture, cunnilingus, knowing the difference between your/you're and cooking beef wellington are amongst my skills, as is giving well thought out and useful advice to others on their dating issues. I am also bad at many things. Remembering to do household chores, not procrastinating, saving... Continue Reading →

I found a lump

There are titles to blog posts that are funny. Some which are cryptic and entice the reader to click the link and find out what exactly is it about number five that they simply won't believe. Then there are the ones which are blunt, to the point and outline the content. This helps SEO apparently,... Continue Reading →

The flirting contract

When I was at secondary school I was really into reading. I mean, really into it. I read a book or two a¬†week; mostly sci-fi or fantasy novels (with the family I had I needed a little escapism, after all), but I read a whole range of things. As long as my nose was in... Continue Reading →
