Teddy Bears Picnic

The sun finally came out this week and the teddy bears decided it was time for a picnic. They all ate so much though that they fell asleep. My daughter had been to a teddy bear’s picnic at school earlier in the day. So she thought it was only right that her own teddy’s had […]

Am I Really Nearing The Challenge Of Middle Age?

Am I Really Nearing The Challenge Of Middle Age?

By Tim Bonner | 2

Next week I turn 44. According to the Oxford English dictionary, I will then be one year away from middle age. It seems to have crept upon me without me noticing too much. Although in the last couple of years, I’ve come to realise I’m not as young as I once was. There are a […]

I'm Just Not Interested In Football Any More

I’m Just Not Interested In Football Any More

By Tim Bonner | 0

I was watching Masterchef a few weeks ago and Greg Wallace asked one of the wannabe chefs what football team they support. Their response was along the lines that they’re not interested in football. And I immediately sat up and thought, “good on ya! I’m liking this guy to win.” It didn’t matter whether he […]

By Tim Bonner | 0

A few months ago my wife and I decided my daughter needed private speech therapy. She’s been having a tough time with hearing and speech problems and previously had grommets fitted.

How To Deploy SSL On Your Blog With SiteGround

How To Deploy SSL On Your Blog With SiteGround

By Tim Bonner | 0

I decided a few weeks ago that I’d jump on the bandwagon and deploy SSL on my blog. In all honesty, I’d read a few horror stories about it being a difficult process. And I wondered whether doing it myself might result in a botched job that I would regret. Whereas in reality, I found […]

By Tim Bonner | 0

With it being half term last week, we decided to get out and about as much as we could. Mid week, we arranged to meet up with some of my son’s peers at the East Links Family Park. It’s a farm park situated just outside Dunbar and about 20 miles away from where we live. […]

Time To Visit Relatives Again In Ireland

By Tim Bonner | 0

Last week was the first week of the Easter holidays and we took a trip over to Ireland to see my wife’s family. It was nice to get away for a while but I never look forward to the car journey. Thankfully, my trusty sat nav app on my phone gets us through most situations […]

I Miss Spending Time In Switzerland

By Tim Bonner | 0

I started spending time in Switzerland when I was in my early twenties. I was a keen hillwalker and a friend of mine introduced me to climbing the Munros in Scotland. But we wanted to experience the Alps and to test our hillwalking skills to the max. That’s when my first few trips to the […]

How Do You Keep Your Kids Safe Online?

If you blinked and missed it, you may not have realised that it was Safer Internet Day the other day. I didn’t do anything special as I’m sure you didn’t but it got me thinking about the safety precautions we have in place to keep our kids safe online. As they’re getting older they’re getting curiouser […]

How To Reclaim Your Old Docking Station With The Layen i-Dock

A few years ago my wife bought me a Gear4 docking station. It was at a time when I still thought the iPhone was cool and the 30 pin connector was alive and well. Roll forward a few years and since that connector became redundant so did my docking station. It’s been languishing in the […]

A few days ago I reached a new milestone. I ran my first 10k nonstop. It was back in February 2015 that I decided to do something about being unfit and overweight. At that time I was 15 stone and had a BMI of 28.1. I didn’t want to be a dad who couldn’t keep […]

Today we decided to get out and about and go for a walk in Pressmennan Wood. It’s a few miles inland from Dunbar, along the coast from Edinburgh. We managed to dodge a few rain showers under the trees. My kids love to explore the woods and my son particularly likes to climb trees. It […]

Musselburgh Night

Out For A Stroll One Evening #MySundayPhoto

By Tim Bonner | 12

I took this photo hoping that the moon would look more prominent than it does. I was out for an evening walk along the river in Musselburgh and I thought the street lights reflecting on the water looked eerie. Even though it takes centre stage, you can barely see the moon. There’s another lonely star in the […]
