The Uncool Sneaker Dads Vol. 3 ft Carlos BFG

The Uncool Dad interviews Carlos “BFG” Campbell about sneakers and fatherhood

This week we speak to the size thirteen Air Presto beast himself, Mr Carlos BFG! Like Jack Brint who we spoke toΒ last week, Carlos and I met through the Sneakerplay group on Facebook whilst joining in on the banter that normally ensues. I should probably state for the record that I haven’t actually met Carlos in person yet due to him living out in the sticks and myself in the big smog but bound by the mutual interests of sneakers and fatherhood, we share a virtual fist bump.

Anyway, enjoy! Continue reading “The Uncool Sneaker Dads Vol. 3 ft Carlos BFG”

The Hills Are Aliiiive.. With The Sound Of The Uncool Dad Complaining

The Uncool Dad and family hit up Northala Fields for some Hill-Fili time

A couple of weeks ago I went to visit my older two kids. As you might have guessed, they don’t live with me and due to ‘logistical difficulties’, I haven’t been able to see them much recently. Flanked by the Missus, our youngest little panda and my sister (our pilot for the day), we took them out to IKEA in Wembley for some meatballs (not the best meatballs but the kids love them).

Being an on the fly visit, I hadn’t planned what we were going to do after we had gotten our munch on. My sis recalled all of the times we had driven past Hangar Lane, seen a bunch of tall hills and been like “WTF IS THAT?!”

LET’S GO!

Mystery Blogger Award

There’s bloggers that win awards – they’re consistent in what they do, they slog it out and constantly grind to put the best into their blogs/vlogs. These guys post two to four times a week, they’re always up to date with the latest in parenting trends and happenings. Some of them even get paid for it!

And then there’s writers like myself. So self-conscious about what to share that I end up over-sharing at times if not at all, fussing too much about quality over quantity that I end up not writing for almost two months (ok to be fair, I’ve been frickin’ busy with fundraising with the Missus for charity and helping her organise her brand Three Little Pandas’ first birthday party whilst cramming in end of tax year admin and.. well, you know.. working and keeping the kids alive and shit). In the time since my last post, I was also pretty ill before we travelled abroad (and lo and behold, I’m ill again since we got back). Trying to write when you’re ill is an absolute bitch. The long and short of it is that I don’t deserve an award of any type for writing by my standards.

Anyway, I’ve won a fucking award!!! Continue reading “Mystery Blogger Award”
