Unfortunately the rumours are true

You know that situation when a band you liked well enough to buy all their albums releases that dreaded statement saying that they’re not splitting but going on hiatus indefinitely? Well, this is like that – sort of. Yes, unfortunately the rumours are true… Something for the Weekend? is off for a bit. After much thought, Sarah and …

Three not out

A candle in the shape of the number three.

Somehow or other, I’ve been writing this dad blog for three years. It doesn’t seem like that long ago that I was writing this post about my new life as Tom the dad/a zombie – or ‘Tombie’ maybe? But it was on this date in 2010 that I nervously tapped out my first post as …

Room 101

Room 101

It’s been ages since I last took part in a meme, so I was pleased to be tagged in this one by A Plucky Heroine. It’s a belter! Named, of course, after the nightmarish place in George Orwell’s classic novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four and the TV show in which celebrities banish things they don’t like to …

Pin It Forward

My 'Places I've been' board on Pinterest

Welcome!

Welcome to the new Diary of the Dad! I’ve just moved from my old Blogger site and am now self-hosted. You’ll observe that it’s a bit sparse here at the moment, but come back soon – the web monkeys and I are working our socks off behind the scenes. Update: Well, obviously this was a …

Time to move on

A pile of cardboard boxes. It must be time to move on.

I’ve been writing this blog for two and a half years now and have racked up a number of posts since I started, but it’s now time for a change. I feel I’ve done as much as I can with the current setup so it’s time to move on… … to a self-hosted presence on …

Ich Liebster dich

Liebster Award logo.

When I got tagged in a meme recently – my first in ages – I predicted that another one would follow soon afterwards. Strangely enough, I was right. I must be getting well versed in this blogging lark. Anyway, I was tagged in this one by Aida at My Life as Harry’s Mum. Thanks, Aida! The rules for the epic Liebster Award, as …
