Parenthood for Dummies
Being a father is a wild ride. My name is Christopher & these are my observations, theories & comments on life as the dad of my two boys Ripley & Jayden. I write this to air my thoughts & update my friends & family with photos, videos and such like. For everyone else I offer hints and tips on parenting as I learn them. For legal reasons I make no direct reference to my employer or any of my colleagues.

I have purchased myself a Canon 350D Digital SLR. I love taking pictures, especially of Ripley as he grows up. When I was young I had an old Pentax SLR, I would spend hours planning the use of 24 shot rolls of film and rarely having the money to develop them. My step dad has a Canon EOS SLR and I was always using it, so it is logical that I should get a Canon EOS type DSLR today, hopefully it will reinstate photography as my favourite hobby. You never know I might even take something good. At least the quality of the photos on this blog will increase :)

Quote Holiday Unquote
He was ill, she was ill, I was ill. I have had arguments on lovers point,
Penny really saved the holiday, she looked after us both and helped snatch some really good memories from what would have been a total failure.
I am writing this on my flight home, it is really late and I land really early in the morning. I am tired and I have to get back to work the next day. Basically I need a holiday...But if I may finish on a truism - (there really is) no place like home.
Rip Update (in an attempt to keep this blog real) - he is balancing a little (then falling on his butt). Saying ?Mama? more than ?Dada?. Grabbing daddy?s new carefully sculpted beard which makes me look 50 and uncannily like my old IT lecturer from St Austell, Mr Gaukroger (bit of info for you social engineers)... you see that!! PARANOIA has set in to top it all off :(
