What is in my pockets?

Over recent months, I’ve noticed a voyeuristic trend in the blogging and vlogging world. It seems to involve mums revealing what is in either their handbag or changing bag.

A hair band. One of the many items I hauled from my pockets following a demanding day of fatherhood.

Making a quick get away

We spent yesterday at Diggerland in Kent. One of the attractions the kids could drive were these small, battery-powered Land Rovers. Helen and Izzy couldn’t get in one quick enough.

A woodland adventure

Yesterday I took my two daughters on an impromptu woodland adventure. Pictured below is Izzy, my youngest child, making the most of a tree stump we came across.

A very significant smile

This is an image of Helen, my eldest daughter, flashing a marvellous smile while messing around at a play park. I took it a few weeks ago when I first got my new camera and wasn’t too sure what to make of it until I flipped it to black and white. View Post

My obsession with wooden building blocks

Rather worryingly, I’ve developed a particular love of our toddler’s wooden building blocks. Worrying, because it’s become something of an obsession.

It all started when I got an update from Elizabeth’s nursery informing me she’d spent the morning building towers and then knocking them down. As this was something she clearly enjoyed, I tried doing the same with her at home.

Coming in at 40cm, this is one of my less impressive towers.
