Over half-term, we took the twins to visit their relatives in Ireland. The ferry journey was full of innocent toddler fun, until Saoirse saw the one-armed-bandits. You can read more about our experience with Irish Ferries here. Thanks to @brummymummyof2 for creating #wickedwednesday. I am very sorry to hear this will be the last one and… Continue reading Wicked Wednesday – When you worry your daughter may have a problem
Daddy vs Chips VI. Unlike many people, I love Ryanair. Having an Irish wife, my relationship owes a lot to Michael O’Leary’s no frills, low cost flights. Despite the horror stories you hear, I have never found the leg room too little (and I’m 6’4″) or their staff anything less than courteous. The only gripe I have… Continue reading On the High Seas!

Lunches need to be tasty and, most importantly, quick. When you have two kamikaze twoddlers stumbling around, spending time in the kitchen is a rare luxury. After the epic… Continue reading Beating the lunchtime blues

This had left us with a large net of balls burning a hole in the cupboard. Da-da-da was determined to put them to good use. In doing so, I discovered… Continue reading A load of balls!
Daddy vs Chips II Up until last week, I had never cooked anything proper for the twins. I had cooked them simple things, mushed vegetables, pasta with sauce, but I had never cooked a full meal for them. Now a stay-at-home dad, I had no excuse. Being a man with hunter-gatherer delusions, I was keen… Continue reading Cooking with Ella
