UK Road Trip Day One: Birmingham

It’s a daunting prospect. Taking a 4 month old baby on a 6 day, 700 mile round trip across the UK with a ferry to Amsterdam in between. It’s something that not many people would even consider.

Accepting My Limitations as a New Parent

I always knew becoming a parent would be a huge life changing event. I believe that’s what you call stating the obvious. There was always going to be limitations.
