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

It’s Sunday so it’s time for a bit of Switzerland. The Alps are one of the worlds greatest mountain ranges. Certainly not the tallest but they are big enough. Especially when you get close up to them. But what they do have is a magic. A special atmosphere. A place where it’s still possible to feel small. Humble in the face of nature. A place where you feel a million miles from our vast urban sprawls. Somewhere you can reconnect…

Getting Out the Door With Twins – Twiniversity – Parenting Twins Article

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

Same view – different season. I never asked my partner which view she preferred. One of thousands of questions I never asked. Oh for those 17 years again…. I suspect she would not have gone for the snow version. She didn’t like being cold. To be honest she didn’t like it too hot as well. She was a Spring and Autumn person. I would definitely opt for the snow version. I have always liked the cold. Maybe it was all…
