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

So far Storm Dennis has been ok with us. So many have had it far worse than ourselves. Last time I looked there was over 560 flood warnings. Many houses are already underwater. So so sad and it’s happening more frequently. Sometimes having a messy, pet wrecked garden helps. It’s makes it less obvious when a storm strikes. So as I surveyed the increased mess zone something caught my eye. Unbelievably during yesterday’s weather hammering two daffodils had decided to…

Game Review: Palm Island from GoFatherhood® – Single Dad, Parents Article

Classic board games took up about three square feet of table space. Think LIFE, or Monopoly. Card games? Generally quite a bit less, unless it involved laying out sets or building chains (e.g., Rummy or Solitaire). But modern games have become bigger and bigger affairs, and a monster like Massive Darkness or even Shadows Over Camelot can end up requiring a sizeable play surface, possibly bigger than your current dining table! If you follow me on Instagram – d1taylor –…

Cut To The Quick – When Talking Cutting Turns To Being Cut – Single Dad, Parents Article

I’m a writer.  Not the kind of person who has to have blood, sweat, and tears come out just to put out a single sentence out onto a page.  While I will edit what I write, I do not struggle with writing or the writing process.  I have a voice, and I like to use it.  As a blogger, I get the opportunity to put my voice out into the community quite often.  And I have a variety of topics…

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

The zero hours contract yielded 5 hours work today. Another 50000000 hours and I might just keep the bank manager from sending me snotty letters. Just enough time left for a quick run. The light was stunning. It’s the quiet before the next storm hits. “Is it true that we are getting another storm.” “Yes Son it’s due to hit at the weekend. But this time maybe just a little less wind but much more rain.” “Great. I bet they…

(Image/Redbubble) The reasons more than half of all romantic relationships (including marriage) fail are not obvious to most people. If you need proof, just ask your current or former relationship partner to share their beliefs about what you experience—good and bad—in your relationship, (or your reasons for wanting to leave your former partner). I’m willing to bet that eight—probably nine—times out of 10, their answer will fall well short of accurately describing your experiences, highlighting all of the ways they…
