Welcome to my Blog!

You can see my general info to the right (Or at the bottom on mobile).

To summarise, I’m a husband, father and dog owner. My wife suffers from mental health problems, most notably anxiety and depression but more recently this has included occasional psychosis and it’s aftereffects. You can read a little more on the About page.

At the moment I’m covering a mix of posts that focus mainly on Mental Health, Fatherhood, Work, the Dog, Me Time and Life in general. To be honest lots of the posts contain a mixture of all of them, which kind of makes sense as they are all my life. I’ve always had a bit of a thing with Lego to be honest, so I thought I’d incorporate that into the blog too.

All new posts appear on the Home Page, and you can select a category you want to look into more at the top of each page. All old posts are available so feel free to have a click around and look back at some of the old posts as some of them should set the scene about our lives a bit up to now.

Bad Belly Emergency

Walking Home From School With Granny

After taking a few weeks off work in order to deal with B having a bit of a downturn, I’m currently on a “Phased Return” to work. This means I am only working mornings and am trying to get rest/downtime whenever I can. Fellow parents will appreciate that this is never really easy regardless of …

B’s Birthday Trip

Out at Frankie and Benny's

A few weeks ago was B’s birthday, I’d been quite worried about what to get her and was leaving it all up to the last minute to be honest. Usually I cheat and just overbuy at Christmas and keep something back, but I cocked that up this year and gave her everything I’d brought, which …
