The day-to-day support that children need during the grieving process is extensive and is required at a time when the other parent (in this instance, me) is at their lowest ebb. One thing that I have learnt in the last six months is that the grieving process is a very individual thing.
Torsten Hvidt and four friends began a journey along a road that was uphill, full of obstacles and quite narrow. At least that's what it may have looked like from the outside...
In my mind it's simple; cosmetic surgery isn't to be taken lightly, and giving it away as a prize or reward is frankly just irresponsible. I can't even begin to express my horror after reading about an American ophthalmologist who was in the news this week for offering cosmetic procedures to anyone who can set him up with his 'dream woman'.
To coin a phrase from a former Princess, there are three people in my marriage. Me, my lovely wife, and a fictional schoolboy wizard with a lightning bolt scar on his head. A Mr Harry James Potter. I even know his middle name. He is a constant presence in my home, a menacing bespectacled spectre in my day to day life.
When I was growing up, Lego bricks came in primary colours and no one told me I couldn't build a garage, a rocket, a pirate ship or whatever took my fancy. Although the choice of bricks back then was severely limited, my imagination did not have to be. Now it seems to be the norm to split the building sets Lego market into those deemed appropriate for boys and those for girls.
I really liked what I saw of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and I can't wait to see more and actually get some hands on with it. From what I did see its a lot of fun, and with around 100 playable characters to choose from everyone should be happy.
With the London 2012 Olympics round the last bend, the penultimate sporting event of the summer is definitely upon us! Myself and the good folk at lyrics4lyrics clothing have released a range of Olympic themed snapback caps that will keep you a 'head' of the competiton!
Whilst in Austin last week for SXSW interactive (SXSWi), I felt like I was pacing the streets of Grand Theft Auto, expecting a shoot-out at a drugstore or brawls and broken chairs spewing out from the bars on 6th Street.
In 1998, the Diet Coke ad slogan was 'You are What You Drink'. If true, then judging by the latest Diet Coke ads women who drink it have a child-like mentality and like playing with dolls wearing heavy make-up, being glam and dieting.
In the wake of Michael Gove's proposal to build a new Royal Yacht for Her Majesty the Queen to mark the Diamond Jubilee comes a certain amount of chest thumping over how much the tub's going to cost us all. T
As a result of impending festivity, I (albeit at the request of my mum) have been considering what kind of digital entertainment I want to receive on this most jolly occasion. Here are my top five Christmas game wishes.
Like many of us I was unaware that Lego was a boys only toy until Lego told me it was. Foolish child of the 80s I was blissfully ignorant and playing with a toy not designed for me. Lego apparently has always been boys only and exclusive. Because there's no unicorns and only a couple of the bald square humanoid figures have boobs there is obviously no appeal for little girls.
If there is something that you know you need to buy for Christmas, no matter how certain you are that stocks will last, I urge you to strongly consider grabbing it while you can. You have been warned.
In a world full of shimmering gems of nostalgia - offering so much more than the boxy logic of Lego, why couldn't we have a celluloid interpretation of something more inspiring? Listen up, producers of America, I'm pitching...
Lego. A timeless crowd-pleaser. Now, to be honest, today's Lego session was borne out of guilt. My little man has been kicking around the house all w...
