London Bridge is apparently falling down but, thankfully, Tower Bridge just seems to be getting bigger and better. As someone who lives in London Tower Bridge always seems to be the bridge that has all the glitz and glamour – it looks good and was centerpiece of the London 2012 Olympics – but thanks to […]

When my son started year 4 all the kids were asked what they would like to achieve over their coming academic year. My son said he would like to know all there is about malaria. It was an odd one I give you that. Other kids had to learn to dance or meet the Queen. […]

This is a big year for me as it is the date I officially become a cockney. Well I say Cockney, but I have now spent more than half my life in London so I think I am entitled to a large helping of apples and pears. I am quite happy to be a Londoner, […]

Childcare is a hot issue as parents try to balance work with their own family life. It’s an expensive business and, over the past 8 years for our two kids, we have spent in the region of £150,000. Eye watering I know but was a decision we made to both work when the kids got […]

Before kids going going out drinking with your mates was carefree and careless. All you had to think about was who is getting the next pint in or how many pork scratchings you could eat before nausea caused by fat intake took hold. Now you are thinking: “I can’t get too drunk as they may wake […]

I hate shopping. Even online it drives me bonkers. My wife has a constant stream of ASOS packages flopping through the door and never seems to send them back. I guess she has got the hang of it! However I did want to put a word out for a shopping website I do think is […]

My Dad buys the Daily Mail. When he visits I make him show me his hands before he enters the house to see if he is carrying it. If he has it, he stays outside. Today a friend of mine appeared on the front cover. Why on earth he agreed to appear in an article […]

So what is the best age gap between kids?

I was 34 when I had my first child. 41 when I had my second. I say I had but my wife was also involved. After a two year honeymoon, travelling the world, the wife and I decided to have a baby with no plan or discussion around how many we actually wanted and when. […]

What is sport in the 21st century teaching our kids?

Playing sport was jumpers for goal posts, mud gripping my hair and playing in the dark until nobody could kick the ball anymore. But times have changed, and I don’t want to sound like an old man, but it was better in the old days. (12)

This weekend we took advantage of the winter sunshine and took the kids for a walk along London’s South Bank and in to the Tate Modern. We both feel it is important to try and show culture to our kids and, as we live in London, we would be idiots to not get them to […]
