This week on dorsetdad.co.uk we leave a Christmas note for my little girl, my in-laws television is stress tested, and how bad are board games at Christmas?
Consider me so relaxed I am positively horizontal, after a fantastic lie-in. The kids were already downstairs beating the furniture, however I was upstairs in a warm and cosy bed, with pillows like marshmallows. To top it off my loving wife had fetched a freshly filtered coffee.
You can tell it’s nearly the end of term as even my little girl, who is usually up at six am, is now sleeping in. It was nearly 7.30am before signs of life were heard from various bedrooms. Captain Chaos came down like an early cave man beating his chest for food.
Oh diary, how can preparing two kids for school be so tough? I got the lunch-boxes ready and waved my wife goodbye, along with all hope. As my wife drove away I asked Captain Chaos where his shoes were? His answer was “Sorry no idea”
It was Friday night in Dorset and all was calm, until loud music was heard thumping outside as we put the kids to bed. Typical! Friday night and the youth with their ‘souped-up’ cars were now driving round our estate as I put my kids to bed. As I swung open the curtains, ready to […]

Wednesday 20th December This morning I was keeping a low profile from my wife, as I am sure she will find out what I did very soon. Captain Chaos was junk modelling, and had corned the world market on junk, and sellotape, and anything not moving was lashed up with sellotape. Everything was wonderful, with […]
Friday 15th December Last day at work today Diary, and man, I am tired, I’m on my knees! After dinner we started putting the kids to bed when I heard my wife shouting “What did you do that for?” Amazing, the Christmas stress has started already Diary, and I was around an hour into my […]
Ok we know each other well enough now to know I did not start my Saturday with hope and optimism, but more with coffee and survival! We were meeting my in-laws for coffee and cake at a nearby garden centre, so I was ready by the time my in-laws pulled up. We had the usual […]
This week I had the day off, and my wife and I had planned lunch together at a new restaurant, which was where she dropped a bombshell! I had completely forgotten about the school fair, and had avoided this for many years, but thanks to my bad timing I had the day off to join […]
