AD | Gifted item John quite regularly cycles to work and it’s a good 10 miles each way. He also sometimes runs on his lunch breaks. As I’m sure you can imagine, this puts strain on his body and sometimes his muscles scream at him. John is happy to try new things now and again if there is a chance it will help him and make this amount of exercise that little bit easier on him. When Bioflow got in touch to see if he would like to try one of their sport wristbands, we were both intrigued. Bioflow explain
Summer is the season for weddings. Most people want to get married somewhere lovely with nice weather and while UK summers are pretty unpredictable, they’re still a really nice time to get married. John and I don’t go out very much and therefore, John doesn’t really have clothes that are smart enough for weddings. I find that wedding fashion for men can get a bit boring because some places don’t offer much choice. Luckily, the lovely people at Dobell, who have a fantastic range, supplied him with something to wear for this kind of occasion. John is the kind of
When one parent stays home with a new baby and the other goes back to work, I think it would be fair to say that the baby will probably end up favouring one parent over the other. Erin has gone through phases a few times when only Mama will do only this time, it’s worse! John had a week off work with me at home after my 2 weeks in hospital following Erin’s birth but in that time, he was the one doing everything for Erin because I couldn’t. John did pretty much every single night feed with Erin, he
Lyndsey recently went to London for a couple of days and I took the time off work to spend with Erin. It is such a rare occurrence that we get to spend time alone together that I knew I didn’t just want to sit around at home with her. It just so happens that we have annual passes to the local zoo in Cromer. Erin loves animals and so do I do it seemed like the perfect thing to do with her. We caught the train and arrived at the zoo for when it opened at 10am. I thought this
Last week John’s Nan passed away and this meant he had to go to Ireland for her funeral. He went Friday lunchtime and won’t be back until nearly midnight tonight so pretty much four and a half days. This has been Erin’s longest time without Daddy. The first couple of days were not so bad. My mum was visiting anyway so I had some help which was fantastic. However, when it came to bedtime Erin struggled without John. He does bath and bed most days and the first night she really struggled to get to sleep. Sunday night was horrendous.
Yesterday we took Erin on a zoo adventure. Due to my work schedule I don’t get to go on fun days out with Erin so I was really excited. I was able to take a half day off from work to go and meet Lyndsey, Erin and Lyndsey’s mum at Amazona Zoo in Cromer. It’s only a mile away from where I work so I was able to get there quite quickly! Erin has never been to a zoo before now so we weren’t sure if she would even like it. However, although Amazona Zoo is not the biggest there are some cool animals
I was so excited when I found out I was going to be a dad. For as long as I can remember I have wanted a family of my own. To meet someone who had chosen to love me and to make a child with her who would be a bit of both us. That is all I ever wanted in life. As soon as I found out Lyndsey was pregnant I started to feel nervous though. What if I turned out to be a rubbish dad? What if I didn’t know what to do, or how to look after
