Today is Oxfam's Dressed by the Kids Day. Here's a blog post all about it, with a short video showing how my daughter and I got into the spirit of things. 
After months of planning, Oxfam’s inaugural Dressed by the Kids Day is finally upon us! Up and down the land, brave adults have today put children in charge of their wardrobe (be it their own kids or grandchildren, nieces, nephews etc.). I spent some time yesterday going through my wardrobe with my youngest daughter Izzy. …

On the blog today, I review the Braun BT5010 beard trimmer and explain how it almost got me in trouble with airport security! #artofprecision
Picture the scene. I’m in an airport about to take a long haul flight. I’ve checked in and I’m in a slow moving line approaching the security checks. I hear a buzzing sound and feel the environment around me shaking. I’m confused and assume a large aircraft is accelerating up the runway. Even so, this …

Fighting parental fatigue with Energex Plus, a health supplement from Healthspan. 
The demands of keeping a household running do, on occasion, leave me feeling tired and fatigued. It’s not a constant problem, but it is something I have to deal with from time to time. I know I’m not alone in this. It’s something all us mum’s and dads have to contend with. Over the next …

Today's #MySundayPhoto image seems to have caused a bit of a stir. It was taken just off Hosier Lane in Melbourne, famous for being heavily graffitied. DO you think this is an unruly mess or a colourful example of urban art? 
Is this a colourful, eye catching example of urban art or a shambolic, unruly mess? It’s up to you to decide! I took this photograph earlier this week when I made a brief visit to Melbourne in Australia (why was in Australia? Click here or here to find out more). It’s of a back alley …

Discussing men's mental health with Movember....the real reason for my recent trip to Australia. 
If I say Movember, what comes to mind? I’ll take a guess you probably think of men growing moustaches throughout the month of November. You may also think of testicular and prostate cancer, as much of Movember’s work goes into raising funds to highlight both these conditions and to support programmes researching treatments and cures. There …

I can officially reveal there are no vampires in Dorking! A blog post about a bizarre conversation between my daughters and I. 
On Monday I took my daughters to Box Hill in Surrey. It’s well-known as a beauty spot and offers amazing views of the surrounding area, including the town of Dorking, nestling in a valley down below. When we left home there was the odd drop of rain but I decided to risk it and by …

On the blog today; a review of Pizza Express's new menu: http://dadbloguk.com/pizza-express/
During the madness of the Easter holidays, Mrs Adams and I were able to escape for an evening and a night to ourselves. My mother in law was visiting and looked after the children while we went out for a meal at Pizza Express. There was a hidden agenda here. We were trying out the …

Dad blogger, writer, husband, father, human
Introduction
I'm a married father of two daughters. I've been a stay at home dad (SAHD) since 2011 while my wife works full time. 

I started blogging about my experiences as a SAHD in November 2012 at Dadbloguk.com. To my surprise, people starting reading my blog. I was asked to contribute to numerous other publications. Three years later I am a published author, writer, columnist and vlogger.

I am regularly seen in the media commenting on parenting issues. Highlights include appearances in the Sunday Times magazine, Channel 4 television news and the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire Programme.  

I write and vlog about all aspects of parenting; family health, education, nutrition, travel, family days out and so on. I also write about lifestyle issues such as men's style and fashion, male grooming, DIY and photography. 

I have a particular interest in equalities issues. As a SAHD I am immersed in a world that expects women to do the childcare and housework. I write about the battles I face in this environment and what I believe should be done to make the world fairer for both men and women. Sometimes I do this with humour, sometimes I keep it very serious.

I contribute to a number of publications, both on and off line. Please do take a look at my contributor list if you're interested in what I do. If you represent an organisation that may interest me or my readers, please do get in touch. I regularly work with commercial organisations, charities and not-for-profits.
