This weekend I went to BritMums or #BML16 as they called it this year! A couple of people see me snapchatting and were confused about where to even start.
Snapchat has to be one of the fastest growing social networks around (I have no evidence to prove this but take my word for it), I get why, it is not just for the youth to share naked pictures of themselves on (it got some bad press about this at the beginning), but has
If you are not a geek like me but do like to know what is coming to your iPhone and other Apple devices later this year, I will try and give you a brief update of what was announced at the worldwide developer conference today!
I will start with the most common operating system and this is iOS, the software that your iPhone and iPad will be running on.
This week has been a busy one but yesterday me and little geek went for a walk around Epoing Foresr timing it just about right to avoid getting totally soaked!
We stared with a walk around Connaught Water, a lake on the edge of Epping Forwest a stones throw from Chingford.
My work takes me all over the place in the UK, recently went to Winchester and was in awe of the architecture there, so much that I want to go back and explore more! But whilst there for a meeting this week I managed to grab this shot whilst walking through Winchester College!
You may have clicked on this post wondering what the hell this is going to be about, well let's be clear from the start this is about Rhinos!
I've only ever seen them in a zoo or wildlife park but one day
I seem to say this every week but I will get back in to my blogging flow soon, I have had another busy week with work but managed to grab some great pictures of Edinburgh, check them out here!
I was sorting my suitcase out this week and one of my personal business cards fell on to the bed, and thought it looked good in this light, but it is also reflects a thought I have been having regarding social media this week.
This is becoming a common excuse, but work has been busy and had very little time to either get out and take pictures, except when I have my phone! .....
I love it when a little plan comes together!
The bank holiday presented an opportunity for me and little geek to go to Wales and spend some quality father and daughter time, it used to be father and daughters time but the teen ....... oh hang on she is 20 now I cant call her that! (any suggestions for nick names....??) as I was saying the teen used to come with us but that is boring these days!
Of late work has been very busy, so have had little spare time along with a couple of trips away, to Barcelona (more on that here) and to Pembrokeshire, has meant that my list of series and films to watch on Netflix is growing!
I cannot believe that a week has gone (almost) since we came back from Pembrokeshire! I have been trying to get out 2 blog posts all week but I have not had the energy to get the completed! April is a crazy time of year for work and all my mental strength has been going towards that this week leaving nothing left for the blog!
We have been in Pembrokeshire since Friday for a nice long weekend, been nice spending time exploring the area that we already know very well.
The only good day weather wise has been on Friday when we stopped in St Davids and also went on a boat tour of Ramsey Island.
This past week has been a busy one!
This time last Sunday we were ready to fly off to Barcelona for a short 2 night break, going away with my parents for the first time in years, as well as the wife, after all the main reason for the trip was for her to be away for her Birthday! But we were also joined by my parents oldest friends.
This post is a bit of a story, a relationship that I have had all my life just like you! This is my relationship with sleep!
It has been a strange one, I remember being a kid and hating sleep, I never wanted to go to sleep…. ever! In many ways little geek is very much the same, it shows weakness in her eyes to admit that she is tired, despite numerous attempts to explain to her that it is ok to go to bed early or have a snooze!
I am hoping that you know today is International Women's Day, The United Nations first began celebrating the day on 8th March 1975, this years campaign theme for 2016 is #PledgeForParity, being the Dad to 2 girls this is something I hope for in their lifetime, although as it stands that is still a challenge.
The current goals for International Women's Day fit in with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, more of which can be read here.
Information released by the World Economic Forum last year estimated that the gender equality gap wouldn't close entirely until 2133, so not within the girls life time at all!
