Proudly working in paid partnership with ,Boots Father’s Day is fast approaching and whilst we’re all here for homemade treats (last year’s Coco Pops box space helmet was a delight) I’m sure you’d all agree we’d rather something equally imaginative but also useful. At Boots there’s a gift for every dad – let’s take a look at some of our favourite gifts for him for our favourite types of dad here… The hipster Dad King C. Gillette Men's Style Master Cordless Stubble Trimmer - £19.99 (was £39.99) This tidy little trimmer stays sharp for up to six months and provides a very close-shave, perfect f ..read more

With input from Tiktok's Head of Child Safety, Alexandra Evans Tuesday, 5pm "Daddy?" "Yes, Richard?", rolling my eyes as this will be his tenth question in succession, all of which so far have been a no. "Urm, can I have Tiktok?" "I don't think so, babe. You're not old enough." "I am actually, cos like literally all my friends have it though, actually." "Well thankfully Richard I'm not responsible for the rest of year 7" I wander over to look over Richard's shoulder at his phone screen. He's sitting right in the far corner of our huge sofa, knees up to his chin and facing into the room so his ..read more

Welcome back! After a few years' break here I am again - sitting at my laptop at midnight with a huge glass of merlot, writing a blog post. It's been a while since I wrote anything down and I admit I got a bit lazy. Social media and showbiz took over - apologies. Send all your complaints to Tom and I will pop them into my special folder where your complaints will be joined by emails from educational apps and pitches from tutor businesses who address their emails "Dear [man or woman]". That actually happens and I just think, 'What would their mail merge actually replace man or woman with?' Lik ..read more

Our holiday to Tenerife

In partnership with easyJet holidays #ad As I lie here on my sun lounger (Daddy speaking), sipping a cold beer from a little paper cup, Adele's new single quietly swooning through my headphones, I can't help feeling as though this holiday has been long overdue. We booked our holiday to Tenerife a year ago on the easyJet holidays website - you might remember seeing a pic of our booking experience around this time last year on Instagram (pictured below). The pandemic got in the way but easyJet holidays' Protection Promise allowed us to defer our trip until it was safe, which worked out well as ..read more

Opinion | Stop shoving the LGBT agenda down my throat #LGBTHM2021

Representation Just when I was thinking it's been a long time since I've seen a half-decent advert featuring gay people, this lovely ad popped up on Facebook Firstly this advert caught my eye because it features a same-sex couple. But secondly because, even with today's clever targeting and profiling on social media it's still extremely rare for me to be presented with mainstream ads featuring LGBT people. As it's LGBT History Month, this got me thinking and I thought I'd get my thoughts down here. As mentioned, the Durex advert stood out to me like a shiny coin. I mean admittedly most gay peo ..read more

In these unprecedented times, collectively as a country our priorities have completely changed, haven't they? Take family transport, for instance. Twel ..read more
