Well howdy folks! It’s Daddy Journey here for the first time. Now, writing is not my thing at all, I’m usually behind the camera and I’m very happy there but for today’s blog post I thought I’d put the proverbial pen to paper and write a little bit about the following photos and how you too can do something similar at home. I’m pretty lucky that over the years I have collected a pretty decent amount of photo gear (thanks Matt!) and it has helped me to create these professional looking photos but you can easily do something similar yourself with just a point and shoot camera or even a smartphone. All you need is a cool background, a camera with flash, some props and something to put your camera on so you can be hands-free. We used a bright yellow photography backdrop but you can use a blank wall in our outside your home, a curtain, or even a bedsheet stuck to the wall to provide a simple background which will help you pop out and be the centre of attention. Once you have a suitable background you can then set up your camera. For this part, I would […]
Its Fin’s first year of official education! I can not believe where the time has gone. He is growing into a proper little boy and I am so very proud. It’s so hard when you’re a parent. You become torn between the sadness that they are no longer babies and the pride of seeing them grow into such amazing human beings. This is just another one of those emotional mile stones that makes me truly grateful that we homeschool the kids. I get front row seats for all of their firsts and for me that is the greatest gift I’ve ever been given. Now, I’ll noisily blow my nose and dry my tears and pull myself together for the rest of this blog post for you! (Or at least try…sniff.) 😢 What did the kids learn that I didn’t teach them? This is an easy one this month because there were many things that they learnt that I didn’t teach them. We went to We The Curious in Bristol and submerged ourselves into the world of science in honour of Fin starting school. We made a video to capture all of his first day at school activities and you’ll see […]
“Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better”Albert Einstein. It wasn’t an intentional thing but somehow we seem to have been pulled towards nature this month. Maybe it was the need to retreat away from the busy school holidays or maybe it was the simplicity and calm that called us. Either way, we have had some of the most beautiful and relaxing family days. When you are submerged into nature you can’t help but feel peaceful and grateful for the world around you. It encourages you to move your body, breath in fresh air and spend quality time with your family. Its nourishing in a way I never really understood before. A true tonic to the crazy days of busy family life. Everything seems a little clearer after a spell outdoors. What did the kids learn that I didn’t teach them? Fin has really taken it upon himself to learn how to spell. I would say he’s doing it all on his own because he is the one who has the drive and is the one asking the questions but of course, we are involved in helping him learn correctly. (Although it has been so much fun […]
I can’t believe that this day has finally come. The day when I can say loud and proud that we’ve written a book. A beautiful cookbook that I can’t wait to share with you all. This book has been a labour of love. Hours and hours have gone into these recipes. From the simple ideas in the beginning to the making and taste testing to get each and every recipe just perfect for you all. I am so grateful to my family for all of their support in the making of this book. Without Daddy Journey, the photos and technical side of things would never have been achieved. Without my amazing and very talented brother, we would never have been able to bring you such a creative piece of writing. My beautiful weegans and my super amazing mum have allowed me to spend hours in the kitchen with no complaints eager to taste test every offering without bias. Without them, our recipes wouldn’t have been through such rigorous testing and have pushed me to strive for the best of the best for you all to enjoy. This book is full of over 50, whole food plant-based recipes. They are all […]
What a summer we are having! It is probably common knowledge that here in the U.K. it can be a bit hit and miss on the sunny day stakes but boy, oh boy have we been blessed with one long hot summer or what?! July has been a delightful mix of sandy toes, salty hair and ice cream kisses. Shall we begin? What did the kids learn that I didn’t teach them? Pops came out with a gem the other day. She said “Mummy, did you know that a starfish isn’t really a fish because it doesn’t have gills, fins or a backbone?” I picked my jaw up off the floor and looked suitably proud and impressed by her vast and ever-growing animal knowledge. Fin has started singing! It is the cutest, off-key sound you’ll ever hear. It literally melts my heart to hear him. He has now taught himself all the words to all of the songs on the Moana soundtrack and performs it with joy and gusto. What did the kids teach me that I didn’t already know? Pops taught me that some lipsticks contain fish bones! From being vegan I knew to avoid some makeup products due […]
