The Daddy Tag

The Daddy Tag

The lovely Frenchie Mummy has launched a new blogging challenge - #TheDaddyTag, a companion to the popular Mummy Tag. Of course, we had to give it a go! Here are Anthony's answers:

Are you a Stay at Home Daddy or a Working Daddy?

Stay at Home Daddy.

Would you have it any other way?

Yes. I would like to be in a position to stay at home... and still be able to afford an au pair!

Do you change dirty nappies? Even the very smelly ones?

Far too often.

A little fairy gives you the possibility of breastfeeding; are you going for it or do you run away?

I would be an Anthony shaped blur on the horizon... Nobody wants a meal with a hair in it.

What is the one must-have item for a daddy?

A child?

How many kids do you plan on having?

Zero. My daughter is an accident not a mistake.

Lads’ nights? How often do you have them?

More often than you'd think I'd be allowed.

Your children’s best achievement?

Being able to say 'Daddy' before anything else.

What is your best memory with your kid(s)?

Nothing beats that special daddy - daughter time, whether it's visiting Comic Con or just curling up on the sofa watching TV.

Name one thing you miss since being a daddy?

Lie ins.

Weight gain, before pregnancy, during, after and now? And we mean YOU DADDY, not the mummy!

I have put on a fair bit of weight since she's been born.

Dream holiday with your kids? Or even without them? (You’re allowed to dream)

Caribbean beach. Marianna could make sandcastles while I drink some sort of rum based drink.

How has your life changed since having kids?


Finish the sentence, “It makes my heart melt when…”

Whenever she says Daddy, and when  her eyes light up when I walk in the room.

Favourite beer brands and football team?

The cheapest ones and I would rather play football with my own balls than have to watch a match.

Huggies or Pampers?

Pampers - but both are what they're filled with! Mamia is way better.

Have you always wanted kids?


Best part of being a dad?

Better parking spaces, child benefit payments, child tax credits, the ability to generally get a seat on public transport, and moulding an actual human being in my own twisted image...

I think he's being sarcastic...

  1. Thank you so much for doing the daddy tag! I really enjoyed reading this post. I wsih we could have an au pair as well. I would love that! I totally love the sarcasm! When I read the first answer, I was like 'Hum, ok, funny answer' and then I totally realised! You must have so much fun with him!!!! Love his humour LOL Especially the answer to the last question. You should ask him to write more posts on your blog, that would be funny. #thedaddytag

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
