Just yesterday

Just yesterday

It seems like, just yesterday we were stood in our tiny bathroom, crying over a pregnancy stick that said "PREGNANT". I'm pretty sure it was just yesterday we anxiously waited for a scan to discover if all was ok with our little 9 week bump, after C had a bad bleed. I'm almost certain it was yesterday I held my breath whilst a midwife gave M oxygen whilst I stroked his little hand waiting for him to breath. It has to be just yesterday when I watched my wife smile so proudly as…Read more
Spring Beach trip

Spring Beach trip

Every year since we moved to Dorset, C and I have looked forward to the lighter evenings and warmer weekends. We spend most of our summer days down the beach and have enjoyed many a weekend trip over the years. A few weekends ago we were really lucky to be blessed with the warmest day of the year so far. So we did what we always do on these days, we packed up the car and headed to the beach. The wind still created a little chill in the air, so we didn't…Read more
Every day a coming out

Every day a coming out

If you're a regular reader, you will probably be aware that C and I recently moved to a new house. We moved into a lovely quiet little road with well kept gardens and neighbours that keep themselves to themselves. We haven't really encountered anyone since we moved, apart from the odd smile and greeting during the day. A month in our new home and now we are gradually getting to meet the neighbours, thanks to regular parcel deliveries arriving whilst we are working. Thankfully we have moved to a friendly road with a…Read more
Easter at Farmer Palmers

Easter at Farmer Palmers

This year C and I decided what we were doing Easter Sunday, the day before it arrived. Last year we visited Farmer Palmers and watched M enjoy a lovely little egg hunt among the hay. So we thought it would be nice to revisit to find some eggs, now that M is a little older. When we arrived we were directed to the overflow car park and very soon realised many more people had decided it was a great day to visit the farm. I think the glorious weather had something to do…Read more

We will weather any storm

We will weather any storm

Clara and I have always had quite a passionate relationship, in many senses of the word. We are both quite passionate people and both have very strong opinions on various subjects. Over the years we've learned to accept our differences. We love each other entirely and understand that relationships require communication and a little work every now and then. I feel part of the reason we get on so well, is because I married my best friend. Someone who gets me, thinks I am just the right amount of crazy and puts up…Read more
A Day with Dinosaurs

A Day with Dinosaurs

Our little dude is dinosaur mad! He loves to watch programmes about dinosaurs, eat dinosaur themed lunches and reads books with us about dinosaurs. Clara and I have booked extra time off this Easter, so that we could look after him during his half term from nursery. We wanted to make the most of our solo days with him and I thought a dinosaur day would be perfect. We are lucky to live less than an hour away from a lovely little dinosaur museum in Dorchester, Dorset. Being the money saving person I am,…Read more

Gay Mum

Gay Mum

As you can imagine, we get asked a lot of questions about our life and living as a same sex couple and we are more than happy to answer most questions. We usually have an answer straight away, and most of these questions are quite straight forward like - 'How did you know you were gay?' 'How did you decide who would carry your son?' And 'How did you conceive Monkey?' Etc etc. . . I could go on for a very long time. However the other week someone asked me a question…Read more
