Happy 20th (+10) Birthday Mrs Hakes.

You probably didn’t know – but it’s Loz’s 30th Birthday today, she doesn’t really want a big deal made out of it, she’s demanded no cards with ’30th’ on (although I don’t see that happening!) So I just thought today’s post would be a simple ‘Happy Birthday’ to the woman …

Mummy is going.. Daddy’s in charge!

Tomorrow is a day that has been looming on the calendar for a while now – Mummy is going away on business, leaving me with the baby for two nights and nearly three days. I’ve not been left with a baby for so long since G was small, so it …

Family Photography with Tracy Morter

A few weeks ago we met up with Tracy Morter in Hylands Park in Chelmsford for her to take some photos of us all. We’ve had the traditional ‘us in front of a white background’ photos done a few years ago, but Tracy’s style is different, it’s all very natural, …

Hanging with the #HarmanDads and Family Photography

Apologies for being so quiet lately, I went ooop North to see Loz’s family and in between catching up with work and looking after small people, the blog has been somewhat neglected. Last night, I was off on official blog business down at the offices of Bite for the ‘#HarmanDads …

A little bit of magic from George Sear

G was star struck at meeting George Sear who was at LEGOLAND Windsor performing close up magic for the guests at the #LoveDUPLOValley event. In this trick he takes Loz’s ring and gift wraps it with a bit of magic.. No idea how he did it!

I’ve applied for ITV’s The Chase!

So last night, with Loz out for the night, I decided to sit down and do something I’ve been threatening to do for months, and that is apply for The Chase! I love The Chase – it is one of the best quiz shows on TV, the questions are well balanced, and …

My Birthday Bunk Off – A Day out at Thorpe Park 2013

It’s taken many hours to get all of the footage I recorded into a short as length as possible (just under 25 minutes!!), but it’s done! I’m mildly annoyed that the record company has forbidden You Tube viewers to see the particular songs played on mobiles, so if you’re a …

The 11 Month Old

So, J is well into his 11 Month, his development is still flying along at a scary pace, similar to his walking – he seems to think just toddling along isn’t good enough, and instead will try and run to his ‘target’. His balance at speed isn’t there yet so …

Swimming Milestones and Back Inn Time!

Yesterday was a day I’d be worrying about for a while, it was ‘distance week’ for G’s Swimming group, where they all try and get their next badge. G’s last attempt wasn’t successful, and I was really worried she wouldn’t do it again this time. I think I was more …

The week of yay and meh!

This week has been the cliché ‘rollercoaster of emotions’. It’s been a massive downer because J has been both teething (with approximately three new teeth coming through), and he has developed a nasty case of croup too. This has led to his well oiled routine being thrown into oblivion, he’s waking up …

Happy Anniversary!

Today, Loz and I celebrate our second wedding anniversary, no idea where all that time has gone, but it’s been a fab few years! In that time we’ve moved to a lovely house, and had a gorgeous, scrummy little boy, and watched G grow into a beautiful young lady. What will happen …
