We went to a big concert for a band called Little Mix at whatever they call the Huddersfield McAlpine Stadium nowadays last night. Here are some photos and some perfeshuernal gig reporting that I wrote.

Nits. Head Lice. School age children bring the bastards home to infect everyone. Itchy heads. Scratchy scratchy scratch. Hooray.

I’ve somehow managed to convince the lovely people at Hedrin that I’m an INFLUENTIAL LIFESTYLE AND PARENTING BLOGGER and they have sent me some head lice medicine to try out on my kids, in an attempt to bring an end to the endless battle that comes from having kids with hair.

Hi everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve written anything much here and I have no excuses other than laziness and a loss of creative mojo.

This picture is mostly unrelated to the contents of this post, but I can’t be bothered drawing up a different thumbnail. Also, this’ll have the women-of-a-certain-age clicking to see if I’m really wearing a tutu.

So, what have I been up to?

It is International Women’s Day and seeing as I am some sort of father to the female children that I somehow made, It kinda comes down to me to educate them in all sorts of things, and that they have all sorts of opportunities and equality and the like.

I’m not gonna teach them boring stuff though, obviously. If I’m teaching them anything it’s gonna be space. Because space is awesome.

Fortunately I have help from the internet when it comes to these things, and the lovely people at RS Components (used to spend lunchtimes reading their catalogue at school, I wasn’t a cool teenager) have made a fantastic infographic about Women In Space for International Women’s Day. They also sent a big bit of text that I’m just gonna copy and paste below because that is what professional writers do.

Those lovely people over a Little Party Parcels sent us a sample box full of the different pre-filled party bags they offer, in an effort to remove one of the most costly and faffy parts of organising a kids’ birthday party – the filling of little bags with little toys and nonsense, so that they might go home and make a mess in their own bloody house…

Gem and I always get in a fight when it comes to party bags, I always think girls should be allowed to have little army men with parachutes and water pistols, she seems to think pencils and lip balms are more fun. She is wrong obviously. Anyway, no need for that argument ever again…

It’s the last day of half term, and I am all worn out, so I’ve fobbed off my final post of the week to Megan, aged 6, with her review of three books by Elli Woollard, The Giant of Jum, The Dragon and the Nibblesome Knight and Swashbuckle Lil – The Secret Pirate.

Hi there everyone,

Just thought I’d let you guys watch a little video all about nutrition, especially for kids during the first 1000 days of their life (That’s about 2 years and 9 months, in case you didn’t just use a calculator like I just did). It’s packed with useful info about childhood obesity, swapping out sugar, what you should eat when you’re pregnant or breast feeding. It’s all very informative and well presented. You can tell I didn’t make it.

This isn’t the video, stop clicking on it. The video is at the bottom of all this well-crafted hilarious blog writing.

Obviously this interests me a fair deal, because I have one of those babies that happen currently asleep upstairs, waiting until I am at my most asleep and comfortable before kicking off asking for milk. I mean, I’m trying to get the other two kids to eat more healthy too, but if I make a fuss about that and they rebel, we’re gonna have riots in the streets, vampire/werewolf marriages, sequels to Mary Poppins, basically Armageddon in a handbag.
