"Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year."


Im so shocked thats its been a year today since i started writing the blog, the time has flown by. Its been a really eventful year and a very happy one. I thought i would write a post to recap on what's been going on. To start with the blog was going to be about toys as we had so many and i was and will always be on the lookout for new things for me and the boys to play with. Seth started his DC Imaginext collection which at this point in the year is starting to spiral out of control (but i love it). Opeie has developed a fascination with spiderman although his obsession came a month late as we met Spider-man at Universal studios in March and he wasn't keen...


Even though it was slightly heartbreaking watching my boy cry because of our beloved Spider-man it was an amazing holiday. We celebrated Opeies first birthday out there...


And with the help of a children's book i wrote and a perfectly executed set up by Seth, i took mine and Mrs M's relationship to a new level...


At this point i realised that my blog about toys was going to get a lot more personal and became a blog about being a stay at home dad and all the things that we get up to. Seth started to get involved too dictating his own posts for me to type up...


And Mrs M also started to join in, writing our 100th post, about craft...


Weve been on plenty of fun days and nights out, including farms, christmas markets, parksspooky adventures and Art Galleries...

This pictures for Nanny Roo...

Weve got more and more into our Lego building over the 12 months and Seth has started building some great things with now just a little of my help...


And our Jokers Fun House was even mentioned on the Batblog which was very exciting...


Both of the boys artistic sides have really blossomed this year too. Seth has been drawing some excellent super hero drawings...




Ok so thats not really Opeie's work but I'm quite sure that the artist got some of his inspiration from one of Opeie's pieces...


Weve been reconnected with old friends who weve been seeing a fair bit over the last few months which has been lovely. Its so nice to have great friends and they love the boys. Opeie loves his new playmate Chris also.

Well if you cant make Lego Mini figures of your friends who can you make them of?

I had a fantastic fathers day this year thanks to Mrs M and the boys and i fall more and more in love with them as the weeks go by. Im such a lucky guy, i couldn't ask for my time to be spent with lovelier people.


Getting to watch the boys grow so much this year has been the best part, Opeie's first steps, his first proper words (apart from mommy and daddy),Shoes.Teeth and Circle and the recent amazing hugs he's just started to dish out. I think he's going to be a very affectionate child just like Seth. Seth has started losing his baby teeth and his reading and writing is coming on excellently, he's also top of his class at school. Were really proud of them both.

I really could go on and on. Im loving life and i finally feel after all these years that I'm in the place I'm meant to be. Im a happy and extremely smitten chap and I'm looking forward to the next 12 months. Its Christmas coming up and for the first time I'm really excited this year so I'm hoping its going to be a good one.
