Mary, and Her Christmas Parenting Problems

All parents have some parenting problems of some shape or form. For most it’s a case of NEVER SLEEPING, but for others it could be something like the kids NEVER EATING (when they are meant to), or never ever having two tidy rooms in the house. For Mary, as in Jesus’ mum, I guess it […]

When I Went Searching For Santa

There seems to be a load of things people don’t mention about being a dad, as a result you don’t find out about them until you’re a Dad yourself, and you’re living the stuff that people don’t talk about. (Still with me?) For example, the massively wide range of jobs you end up doing, jobs […]
