Date Night

Date Night

Tonight is a very exciting and much needed occasion, it's Date Night. The last time Kirsty and I went on a Date Night was when Monkey was about 4 months old. We had a lovely couple of hours eating some dinner and talking (about M lol) and then rushed back because we hadn't left him before and we were very anxious. Tonight however is a different story. We're going out for a cheeky Nandos, then going to watch a film at the cinema. Yes, you heard us correctly, we're actually going to the…continue reading →
Raging Lezzers and other remarks

Raging Lezzers and other remarks

Kirsty and I got to talking with some friends of ours about the terms in which people refer to us as. I'm not talking 'Civil Partners' or 'Same Sex Parents' I mean the sort like 'Raging Lezzers' or 'Lesbo's'. I was explaining to them about two instances where someone has gone completely out of their way to make a remark to us. 1st - On the first day of our Honeymoon a guy in a car deliberately stopped in front of us and shouted 'Lesbians!' out of the window. 2nd - We were…continue reading →

It’s not always rosy

K - Clara and I are very conscious of the fact that we come across as a happy loving couple most of the time. We smile together in family photos and say lovely things about each other on social networks. But that isn't to say everything has been smooth sailing since we became parents. The last few months have been a fantastic adventure, but they've also put our relationship through some pretty tough tests. In the months leading up to Monkey's birth, we were incredibly close. We had time for cuddles and lazy…continue reading →
I married my soulmate.

I married my soulmate.

On the 15th October 2010, I stood in front of roughly 30 of our closest family and friends waiting for a new chapter in my life to begin. I had never been so nervous and I'd performed in front of a hundred or so people at different amateur performances growing up. But this was different, this wasn't a performance. This was me, standing in front of people I know and love, declaring a deeper love for the most beautiful woman I'd ever had the pleasure to meet. I'm not someone who wears my…continue reading →
Hope for Change.

Hope for Change.

K and I try not to talk about our political views but its fair to say that we do not share many of the same views and opinions of many Tory Party members. This post is not going to be me ranting in depth about the many issues that we disagree on but when I see headlines like "Top Tory: Gay couples can't raise children" on the front page of The Guardian, it makes me angry. We are raising our child with all the love, support and warmth that any parent can give…continue reading →
Why We Blog

Why We Blog

I'd love to be able to say that when we discovered we were pregnant, I turned to C and said, "Let's blog our experiences and change the way the world views same sex parents" But that really isn't how it happened. That's not only Why We blog. I've had several blogs before. They were always half ass attempts for me to keep track of things I was up to. My most recent success was my Things Before I'm 30 Blog. I say success, my idea of success was updating it once a month…continue reading →
