Reservoir Dad

Reservoir Dad

I fell into this blogging thing but now see it as that crucial cog in the machine. Blogging offers me a great creative outlet with an immediate audience. It freshens my perspective. Reliving my time with the boys, recording our last pregnancy and the birth of our fourth child and dancing around the intimate moments of my relationship with Reservoir Mum acts as a time capsule for my family, adds a little extra to my world, and reminds me of how good I've got it.

A hard day at the office becomes a learning experience in retrospect, a chance to colour the most difficult moments with a touch of the crazy, something to savour, something to reread later with the boys on my lap.

I no longer write sponsored posts. It just about killed me.

Social Media

Be sure to follow me to stay a part of my conversations on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere in the realm of social media.


My blogging has given me a unique opportunity to bring my message to larger audiences. I have appeared on TV, the radio, have done presentations and written for online publications. I can say that all of it has been a thrill. Here are some of my more noteworthy engagements.
