Are You A Metrosexual Male?

Are You A Metrosexual Male?

A survey conducted by Diet Chef in 2014 says that one quarter of men are so self conscious about their appearance they prefer to have sex with the light off.  Now after 2 kids and 10 years of marriage, any sex would be appreciated whether the light’s on, off, or...
Do you want to be fit, or do you want to be fit?

Do you want to be fit, or do you want to be fit?

Bear with me here; read the title back to yourself, except this time imagine you’re a 15 year old boy and place a heavy emphasis on the second ‘fit’.  It changes the meaning entirely from fit to sexy as fuck.  The reason I ask this question ‘do...
#BurgersofBritain – Exmouth

#BurgersofBritain – Exmouth

The first stop on my #BurgersofBritain tour is Exmouth.  Over the years, I’ve seen this place expand and grow into the fairly modern pedestrianised area that it is today.  The place where trainee Royal Marine and Army Commandos, based at Lympstone, can go to get...
Nobody Likes Doing The Dishes

Nobody Likes Doing The Dishes

Apologies to all of the die hard fans of Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston, but I’m about to paraphrase and potentially misquote one of your favourite films because I’m fed up of having those “I want you to want to do the dishes.” from The...
Push Up Challenge 2018

Push Up Challenge 2018

The push up is one of the most classic exercises. In a gym, the standard measurement of strength seems to be the bench press. When meeting a new gym buddy, it doesn’t take long before either one asks “Dude, how much do you bench?” In my world, the...
A Father’s Mission

A Father’s Mission

The western world is currently going through a reality check.  Behaviour that was once seen as acceptable, is now rightly being called into question, and those who perpetrated it being called to account.  It surprises me how many people are genuinely shocked by the...
How Much Water Should You Be Drinking?

How Much Water Should You Be Drinking?

This is a question that I’ve asked over and over again, but I get very few comprehensive answers.  Hopefully, by the time you’ve finished reading this you’ll have a better understanding of how much water you should be drinking over the course of a...
The Crisis In Masculinity

The Crisis In Masculinity

There’s a crisis in masculinity apparently, well, according to Emma Thompson in her Newsnight interview regarding the accusations against Harvey Weinstein at least.  Women have been the subject of this kind of behaviour since time immemorial, and Harvey...
Do You Have An Unsupportive Partner?

Do You Have An Unsupportive Partner?

I’m a big fan of intermittent fasting.  I’ve tried almost every diet out there, not because I needed to or even believed in them working, I just wanted to so I can experience first hand what it feels like to be on one and what results to expect....
An Apology To My Kids

An Apology To My Kids

I read a brilliant poem about mothers being the glue that keep families together.  It’s not the first poem I’ve read on www.theuncheshirewife.com and I am constantly impressed by how easy she makes it appear to write great poetry.  After deciding to stay...
