A very simple, short blog post:

Dear Paddling Pool...I love you. #HeatWave  
In the past few days I have come to appreciate the simplistic beauty of the paddling pool. Forget iPads, or other complex toys; when the sun is out and the temperature rises above 25 degrees Celsius, the paddling pol really does reign supreme. Our paddling pool really came into its own yesterday afternoon. I filled it up prior to going on the school run. The idea had been to take both kids to the park for half an hour before returning home and le...

Mixer taps, storage and electric light fittings...all point to consider when creating a child-friendly bathroom. My first blog post for the +Utopia Furniture blog.
A little while ago we had the roof on our house replaced. While the workmen were busying themselves ripping off and replacing tiles, they accidentally put a couple of large cracks in our bathroom ceiling. This was no one’s fault. Replacing an old roof isn’t a job that can be done with delicacy and this was simply an unfortunate side effect of getting the job done.In some respects it was a blessing in disguise. Although it wouldn’t require urgent ...

Over the past month I've been growing a beard as part of a charity campaign. To my surprise I've become quite attahced to my facial hair and it's inspired me to vlog. Growing a Beard Part One. Enjoy!

Well +steven dennis I can't quite believe people think it looks good on me! I have trimmed it now, by the way. It was looking a bit unkempt.

Ageing; it happens to us all and I'm quite sanguine about it. Even so, I do find myself wondering whether I squandered some of my younger years.
An old Alanis Morisette album has got me thinking about how I'm ageing. It doesn't both me, but did I squander some of my younger years?

Discussing vasectomies at +BritMums Live.

My write up of last weekend's awesome blogging extravaganza...
I've scored the hat trick and survived three BritMums Live conferences. Unlike previous years, this time there was talk of vasectomies.

My teenaged nephew is flying in from the USA to stay with us for a few days. I have absolutely no idea how to entertain a 21st Century teenager. How would you do it?
We're about to enter unchartered territory. My teenaged nephew is coming to visit for a few days. How does one entertain a teenager?

Remember the picture I posted a couple of weeks back of my daughters with a huge bar of chocolate? I told you all the chocolate was removed from them before they could eat any of it. As this #MySUndayPhoto shot shows....I was mistaken.

Are young people obsessed with mortgages and getting on the property ladder? Are they lumbered with crippling student debts? Do these issues stop them from planning their retirement or are they simply feckless? Massive debate on the +Retiresavvy forum. Why not take a look and join in?
I just want to get a general idea what other people think. Does the younger generation give enough consideration to retirement? Obviously they have a lot to think about; marriage, children etc. Is it

Introduction
I'm a married father of two daughters and I've been writing Dadbloguk.com since November 2012. I live in a topsy-turvy world; my wife works full time while I am the main carer for our children.

I write about all aspects of parenting; childcare, education, health, holidays, arts and crafts and so on. As a man that 'holds the babies', I also highlight the gender barriers us men face as fathers. My experiences have shown me the parenting world is unfairly geared-up towards women and I often write about the barriers I personally come across. 

In addition to my own blog, I have a Huffington Post Blog, a monthly guest blogging spot with BritMums and write a monthly post for the Kiddicare blog. I've also contributed to the Good Men Project, the Portland Hospital blog, Love All Dads and various other outlets.


Bragging rights
I'm yet to win any awards, but I've been nominated for several. I was also very proud to facilitate a live twitter Q&A session with Employment Relations Minister Jo Swinson in 2013. I was also one of the few dads to speak at BritMums 2013 and, courtesy of MumsNet, attended a reception at No10 Downing Street in honour of the charity Railway Children after blogging about its work.
