Welcome to my site, I’m Kip Hakes, and I’ve been blogging here since 2008. I’m a dad of two, I’ve got a daughter called Georgia (14), and a son called James (5). I’m married to Vicki, and we all live in the Essex countryside. My blogging and vlogging covers a wide range of subjects – and there’s ten years worth of work here. So pull up a chair, and enjoy!
