MOST RECENT

Aaahhhh, an experiment with long-exposure photography that sort-of worked. I was trying to get a picture of a train at night as it rolled into a station. At first I didn’t like it, but it’s sort of growing on me. I think the image could be improved if I had been stood further away (I was stood at a safe distance, I should add!). What do you think? .

Meet the Gilroy family. They’ve helped me out with something today.

I’ve written massive amounts about shared parental leave. Being a dad blogger, I’ve usually focused on the impact on dads and kids. This left me wondering, do mums get anything out of #spl and if so, what do they get?

Nicola, pictured in the middle, has written a superb article for me. Following the birth of her and husband Ben’s second child, Ben took eight months spl allowing Nicola to return to work after a month.

Nicola admits is wasn’t always easy. She makes clear, however, that the couple worked as a team and she doesn’t believe she could have balanced house / kids and work if Ben hadn’t been around in the early months.

I am a firm believer that spl needs huge reform, but this family’s story shows that it can work. Please do have a read. Link in bio. .

As promised on my latest blog post.

My #premierleaguefantasy team in time for game week 2.

Check out my last blog post link in bio.

I love this image (even if I say so myself). I was passing Westminster Abbey in London just as the sun was shining through these buttresses. I simply had to take the pic! I hope you like it. .

This - fashion Instagrammers - is how it’s done. Oh, okay, maybe not, but when I tell you what I’m wearing you might be impressed.

That, my friends, is the shirt I wore on my last day of school. Yes, I can still get into it and do the buttons up (if you want to see me putting it on, take a look at my Stories). I found it in a long-forgotten box in a storage unit we hired while moving house. Coming across it was a bit of a bitter/sweet experience truth be told.

Sweet, in that I could fit into it. Bitter, because some of the messages written on it were horrible. It was a reminder of how I lacked confidence as a teenager and how I thought letting people write these supposedly funny things would make me popular.

The shirt has now been disposed of, along with other items from my younger days that I simply can’t justify keeping (number plate from my first car......a 20 year old letter from Ed Davey MP......a Wendy and Lisa LP). Full story is on the blog. Link in bio.

Before you go off to read it, do you think you could still fit into your old school clothes???

So that picture I took yesterday of the blurred lights? This what I was trying to photograph! It’s a high-rise building photographed at long distance using a 300mm camera lens. As you can see, this image worked out a bit better! .

Haha! You know when a photograph goes wrong but you kinda like the result? Well here you go. I was trying to do some late-night photography of an urban scene, but the shutter went off too soon. I quite like it though, this is abstract! .

I found this on a memory card. It’s a pic I took just after taking delivery of a 70-300mm camera lens and I was experimenting. I love the fact the railway line disappears into the mist. Do you like the pic? .

Spent some quality time with the family this weekend, and finally got A to sit for a photo, which can be quite difficult as he never stops moving!

Yes, I did catch the ball! That picture was taken at the recent #subwaynflflag Summer Bowl in London. Over 1,000 children from across the country to compete in an NFL Flag tournament, which is a form of non-contact American football that girls and boys play in mixed teams.

On the day itself, the Chorley Seahawks won the tournament but all teams played very hard, watched by various NFL stars including Neiko Thorpe, Jared Cooke, Jerrell Casey and Mack Hollins.

The game is increasing in popularity and thanks to @subway_ukireland mums and dads can register their child’s school to take part in an NFL Flag training programme. Take a look on the blog for more info (link in bio).

Had an amazing holiday in Newquay! What an amazing place for our first holiday.
.
I have learnt so much about being a parent this week, especially about being a dad. All of the amazing things I got to do with Rory for the first time and make incredible memories. We believe as parents we nailed some aspects of the holiday and some we have learnt from.
.
As I haven’t done a blog in so long and been focusing on instragram, I will be doing a holiday blog with the pros and cons about holidaying in England and tips we felt made a big difference.....I will be writing it tomorrow night so if you have any questions please put them in the comments below. #dadscomm

Spending the afternoon in my favourite place to eat when I come to he caravan. @billybobsparlour in #skipton. This place is a kids heaven with ice cream galore as well as an amazing outdoor play area. Definitely check this place it if your in the area. #yorkshire #foodporn #americandiner #americanfoodie #burgerlovers #playareas #skiptonyorkshire #northyorkshire #blogger #dadblogger #dadbloguk #adventuredads #adventurebrown #sodafountain

It’s the weekend!!🙌🏽💪🏽 what’s everyone up 2? I’ve already done my early morning swim @vobsterquay a nice little 1500m ready for tomorrow’s half Ironman. Now it’s back to spend some time with the boys and @lucyjessicacarter Jenson loves riding his bike now and I’m very proud that he got it so easily! Obviously takes after his dad with bike skills 😂😂🤷‍♂️ will be beating me soon!!

During the holidays, I try and spend as much time as I practically can outside with the kids. This year, @petsathomeuk has given us one more reason to get outside thanks to its #mypetpals summer challenge.

The retailer has set 10 challenges for families to do together and they’re all very simple. They include making a pebble pet, feeding birds and doing bunny hops.

We also attended a My Pet Pals workshop and learned all about fish. It was a fascinating session and we learned a lot about looking caring for fish (you can book a session on the Pets At Home website). So what’s Izzy doing in this picture? She was in the park and going through her My Pet Pals activity booklet deciding what activity to do next. What we ended up doing was pretending to be a furry animal....although I’ll share those photos another time!

Now this isn’t the kind of thing you see every day! I spotted this boat in dry dock on the Sussex coast. What an amazing paint job!
