Lancashire mum fined £240 defends term-time holiday
  • Totally agree with her. The experiences on that holiday will last a life time. I seriously doubt that whatever they missed in those weeks will have any impact on their lives.

    The £240 fine is well worth the savings they made.

  • Why haven't car manufacturers standardized automatic brake lights when a built in accelerometer detects deceleration?
  • I don't know what the system is called but it's been around on a lot of cars for a while now. Our car does it (2016 Nissan Qashqai) - the hazards came on automatically when I had to brake hard on the motorway, and everyone else's hazards came on too - it was exactly the reason I knew how I knew I had to instantly brake hard due to all the cars ahead hazard lights coming on with the brake lights.

  • Broke 4 hours for the marathon!
  • Awesome, well done! Huge achievement!

    I don't have a watch yet so can't track my heart rate, but the last few runs I've been really concentrating on my breathing and only breathing through my nose (I'm only running 6km to avoid aggravating a bad knee) and it's making a big difference, feeling a lot less exhausted at the end.

    Happy father's day!

    I hope you all have a great day!

    The weather.

    Yes, this is cliché, but Jesus Christ the weather is terrible at the moment. It feels like it's been constant rain for months, and even when it's not raining it's grey and miserable and cold.

    I just want to take the kids out on our bikes but it's always raining or threatening to. I genuinely think this has been the wettest several months that I can remember, May and June are usually decent but now it's constant fucking rain.

    Fellow Dads, what would be your ideal father's day be?

    For me I think it would to have a full enough English breakfast with the family, a mug of proper coffee, where I don't have to make any of it.

    Then selfishly I'd love to spend most of the day on my own without doing any chores or being constantly nagged: watch some F1 if it were to be on, read my book on the sofa, enjoy a small beer (Tiny Rebel, Clwb Tropica).

    Then in the late afternoon, go out for some food for some decent pub food or an Indian.

    What about you?

    What's your go to lunch during the week?

    I've recently been really enjoying poached eggs on toast with sriracha sauce drizzled on top, with a decent portion of chipotle baked beans on the side.

    Why the fuck do some people drive so unnecessarily slow on the motorway?!

    I'm not talking 65 or 60mph, but toddling along at what seems to be 40mph for absolutely no reason?! If you don't feel safe driving faster than that, get off the motorway!

    Thoughts? I doubt the base version will be £30k, but I think this looks decent.

    Why does it take so long for this Class 50 to start up when cold?

    It seems to take nearly 10 minutes to get started. What's actually happening? Are the pistons literally unable to move in the cylinders until the engine is warm enough?

    What's on your meal plan for this week?

    I thought it might be cool to see what different meals people have in the week and maybe provide some inspiration for others!

    Are you going away on holiday this year?

    We're planning on going away this year and are very likely to be staying in the UK.

    I'd love to go abroad and get a little place near the sea and hire a car so we can go off and explore but it's so expensive, and with having two young children I'm not convinced a package holiday would be practical (I'm thinking of the logistics of hauling them around the airports at crazy hours and having to share a room with them).

    Have you got any plans to go away this year? If so, where are you off to?

    What funny things have your kids innocently said?

    I was cuddling with my 20 month year old daughter, who's vocabulary is limited to just "dad" and "hot", on our bed the other evening watching Snail on the Whale, when all of a sudden, after 10 minutes of complete silence, in her cute little voice she randomly babbles: "die bitch". My poker face skills were seriously put to the test.
