Bouncing – A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent. – Single Dad, Parents Article

Blue sky… That was a few days back. These roses are about 14 feet high. Yes the hedge needs some attention when the birds finally fledge. So how do I take a photo of high up roses.

Just remember what happened in The Birds. No cute Angry Birds here…. We watched Angry Birds 2 a few nights back. It’s very funny. Red and Big Terrence are my new role models. The Birds in the Hitchcock movie are just a bit too Deadpool for my liking. Everyday the…

The Huddle – A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent. – Single Dad, Parents Article

Now that’s how you do a huddle. HU DD LE Spelling has never been one of my specialities. So not a lot of help to a dyslexic son trying to memorise 15 words in the hope of getting at least 10 correct to avoid a school punishment. Now that’s a way to spend a Sunday. The approach Son has gone for is to break the words up into little words and the try to do a memory photograph of each…
