Equality and Human Rights Commission promotes flexible working to dads and employers

This International Men’s Day, I’m doing something a bit special. You may find me gracing your small screen at some point as I feature in a video recorded by the Equality and Human Rights Commission to encourage men to consider flexible working.

Falling in love with Pinterest again

This isn’t so much a blog post as a public service announcement. Dearest reader, I’d Like to point you in the direction of the Dadbloguk Pinterest site, which has just been given a revamp.

Arc en ciel

Why oh why has this blog post got a French headline? The reason is simple: Arc en ciel means rainbow in French and this picture was taken, yup, you guessed it, on a rainy day in France.

Reviewed: Inateck laptop bag. Great when you need to travel with tech.

It being the summer holidays, I’m spending a lot of time visiting attractions with the kids and undertaking various overnight stays. Among the many considerations I have to consider is what luggage to take.

A rare view of sunset

This may sound like an odd thing to say, but it’s very difficult to see the sunset where we live. Last night I ventured out to take photographs of some nearby meadow land that has come to life with flowers in the recent sunshine. I happened to look up and felt this dramatic sunset made for a better image.

Because of a quirk of geography, it’s difficult to see the sunset where we live. Last night, however, I had some luck and captured this dramatic scene in the sky.
