My Father’s legacy 8

I think that my Father and Grandfather both effected my choice in men, when it came to MadDad I fell hook line and sinker for a man with echo’s of the other great men in my life. A better husband I could not have and I have had the pleasure of watching him become a great Father over these last seven years. I should have known he would do it well, as he injected me in y butt three times a day for the whole of my pregnancies and was just amazing. Watching him grow and develop with our boys has touched my heart. He makes me proud every single day and they both love him and choose to spend time with him. He is a great Father.

But my Father’s legacy doesn’t end with my boys, oh no you only have to take a look at my younger brother and the way he is with his children. He is a wonderful father to Chuky, ever the child himself. His nephews adore spending time with him and he is a good honest man. He adores his step grandchildren and is starting to look more and more like my Dad.

I am so lucky to have so many great men in my life. Happy Fathers day, to those living and to those who’s echos live on.


Five things I want you to know about your Father 28

Now boys, I could tell you your father is a great man, a giving, loving, caring and respected man, but hopefully you will already know this. At the moment your Daddy is your hero, the person you most look up to and also the person you most want to be. As far as I am concerned that will tell you all you ever need to know about your Daddy, so instead I am going to tell you some other things about the man I am proud to call my husband.

He is the perfect person to have on your team at a music quiz. We wer


Is his best just not good enough? 19

arriet over at Plan B, wrote a really interesting post about how far would you trust your husband and as with all great posts, it really got me thinking. She referenced the post from The Guardian I about being a foundation parent and the fact that woman remain the foundation parent in the household and how this is very 1950’s.

The reason it got me thinking is how very different to my life it is. I was a stay at home mom when the boys were small. we made sacrifices and returned back to our native North East of England so that I could remain at home and be the boys primary care giver and influencer and look after them during the day, however, this has never meant that I am in sole charge of them and the house and when MadDad steps back through that door he takes on more than his fair share of the work.


Irrational Fears 11

I watch him as he sleeps, The gentle rise and fall of his chest, The familiar sound as he breaths, The ever present warmth of his skin against mine.   I close my eyes and try hard to sleep, Focus on the out breath, Try to feel peace at my core, But in its place only panic.   What if something goes wrong, What will I do, How will I cope, Alone. I wrote this on Thursday morning at about 3,30 am, whilst these irrational fears ate me apart with worry as MadDad had a small operation yesterday.  Thankfully he is home and recovering, although the operation was twice as large more »


Love 29

Love for me is the man who stands beside be everyday. The man who has been there for me through some really tough times. He has given me injections, changed dressings and nursed to back to health. He is a great provider and wonderful listener. Together we have created two boys with the most amazing potential. I hope that we will grow old together. Thank you for being my partner on this journey called life. I love you.


MadDad’s Birthday 5

My wonderful husband turned another year older on Sunday and I have to say, what a great day it was too.     It started with me and the boys busy with the glue and glitter making some unique cards for him and then cooking his favorite meal and making his favorite carrot cake.   The weather was pants, so we didn’t do very much apart from eat, cuddle, watch movies and play boardgames.  What a perfect way to spend a birthday.
