Dear Bobby...

Jeff Brazier has written an open letter, via an exclusive blog on The Huffington Post, to his son, Bobby as he struggles to come to terms with the los...

Dear Bobby...

How difficult it can be at times to spot your grief for mummy. While we quite rightly do not use it as an excuse for every minor indiscretion, it is at times so glaringly obvious that the very worst you can ever throw at me is undeniably a direct consequence of the turmoil you occasionally feel inside. Yet although I know and accept its origins, why do I always allow it to hit me so personally and so deeply?

Cycling Around Madagascar

Setting off on my third fundraising cycling trip for Norwood wasn't a hard choice. One year previously I had embarked into the unknown with a group of strangers to Sri Lanka and had come back a changed person. It was only natural that in my often hectic world full of responsibility I would want to immerse myself in another culture...

Educating Bobby... Where Next?

My eldest son Bobby is somehow on the verge of becoming of senior school age, so for me, today was spent on one of many tours of schools to work out exactly what our options are and where I would like to end up spending the next five years driving to and from twice a day in the name of my child's education.

Balloon Release

For the last four years since Bobby and Freddy lost their mum the boys and I have released balloons as a mark of respect, a loving gesture and for the lads especially, a positive way to acknowledge their loss in a way that can be considered by all as a happy occasion.

Double Date

There are very few landmarks in parenthood that stick out as much as your child's first date, well last week I was to play chaperone at Bobby and Freddy's very first double date!

Bringing the Romance Back

In a way I do envy those that are childless and about to embark on a relationship that will see them marry and have kids as the years progress. Single parents like us do the best they can for ourselves and for our kids - but the best time to get it right is before you've got it wrong, but some people need to get it wrong before they are ready to get it right!

Bob and Fred's Skate Night

It's really significant to me that the boys have opened their 'charity account'. The fact they chose Marie Curie who cared for their mum and Grief Encounter who have made their loss less painful indicates they understand what it means to give back and to pay gratitude.

Thanks be to the Twitter Fans

I had a lovely time making dinner for the gang but on my long drive home late that evening it dawned on me that there might just have been a special reason why Nicola won the competition in the first place, and why it led me to meet Matthew.

Guilt

Simply put, I feel like I'm letting them down. I'm not there to pack them of to school or to tuck them into bed and that niggles me... Bringing up kids in modern times is a full time job in itself and then we want to go and have another full time job at the same time?! Working parents/professional jugglers? Same thing.

Great TV, the Beginnings of Christmas and Things to Do!

The success of a reality TV show relies purely on the strength and depth of characters and chemistry between those participating. This year's jungle was a first in that MOST were grounded, normal, friendly and likeable if not collectively a little soft.

One Hill at a Time

It's true of life that when faced with a long journey to achieve the goals and ambitions we set for ourselves, it's helpful for us to understand that to reach the target, we have to take one step at a time to progress towards our dreams.

Giving Back

Maybe if I did too many events and asked for 'help' on too many occasions I would quickly exhaust the patience and better virtues of many, but then if only 1% of my 318,000 Twitter followers donated £1 each, that would still raise £3180! There are worse ways to get on peoples nerves.

We are a very happy camp right now, I will always share what I find difficult about parenting because without this I would not have made such complete progress, to admit to a problem is not to show weakness, it's to invite the good people amongst us to pick us up and send us off in the right direction.

Naughty at School

Right now I am experiencing a feeling that I hope disappears rather quickly for I feel like I am somehow failing the children, I must be, or why would they both be misbehaving so much at school?

As many parents will agree, not everything is always as rosy in the gardens of parenthood as we would like. Of late I feel like I'm going through a particularly challenging phase with my youngest son, Freddy.

The Happy Family Balance

Today I want to talk about the difficulties many parents face in balancing their children's best interests with achieving their own happiness. Quite a serious topic but one that I think has affected many parents to some extent when trying to raise their kids and remain in a happy relationship with their partner.

For some time the boys had talked about the summer holidays with some excitement, mainly because they were so looking forward to going to see their nanny who now lives in Tenerife.

To celebrate reaching 300,000 followers on Twitter recently I proposed to set a competition entitling the winner to a terrible fate, to put their lives into my hands by allowing me to visit their home and cook them and their friends a meal.
