About me

Hi, I’m Tim. I’m a father of three – two boys, one girl. This blog’s about my experiences as a father, my increasingly nostalgic reflections and other random stuff that interests me from time to time.

Hey, it’s a cheap hobby, it keeps me (vaguely) sane and I continue to labour under the misapprehension that (a) my kids might actually read some of this when they’re a bit older and (b) I’ll one day become vaguely competent at this blogging lark. If I’m honest, I’m not sure which of the two I’m more deluded about.

If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, here are a few of my favourite posts you might like:
