Buying a cot is a technical issue.

Baby poo really exists.

Pushing a pram is cool.

School teachers are too young to do a proper job.

You become the best sports coach ever.

What you did as a boy is forgotten.

Driving at high speed is dangerous.

You're always skint.

All this modern tech. is just not necessary.


But everyone knows dads are great.
If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.

Funds paid to date accepted as F&F 16th August 2013, the wait for completion begins.

Totally the opposite here! Hubby is an advanced police driver and he hates it when I drive!

Have to say that I hate driving him as he is so critical!

I wish I had the confidence to drive, notice hubby didn't drink at Jan's on Saturday night as I knew I didn't have the confidence to drive back to hotel....I'm useless when it comes to driving. x

I'm fine driving on my own. Don't mind hubby as long as he isn't too critical.

I prefer the motorway to local roads! I drove back from Jan's on Saturday and I quite enjoyed it - clear roads and 80-90 most of the way (except where there are speed cameras!).

I wish I were more confident at driving like you Skippy, I've only ever driven on the motorway a handful of times but never through choice.

I refuse point blank to drive on country roads when we're on holiday, and Dave still reminds me of the time we were lost in Cornwall and I was sitting in the passenger seat praying and saying 'we're going to die!'

I'll do both. I drive cross country to work and have to watch out for wildlife!

I used to do the motorway as well.

This area is a nightmare for roundabouts and speed cameras though!
