    So being a stay at home dad has been quite a shock to me going from working 24/7 Out in all conditions covered in blood and oil day and night. Making my own money holding my business together being my own boss etc etc but now I'm ruled buy two kids day and night. Here are some pics of what we get up to at daddy day care probably not your normal kids activities, I hope you laugh as much as my wife did when she realised what we were up to. 20181127_114943.jpg 20181127_114530.jpg 20181124_150655.jpg 20181124_145223.jpg

    They are brilliant photos and I like them all but the one of your boy, sitting back reading Model Engineer really made me smile. He looks so engrossed.

    They are brilliant photos and I can see when they grow up you will get them more involved with your hobby

    So brilliant.... the best dad day care ever. They will have great dexterity, vocabulary, imagination and skills, far, far better than those who get plonked in front of the Tv for hours. :applaudit::aaaaa::biggrin:

    Thanks tomsmum I obviously take them to all the normal kids stuff as well but in our spare time we are building and making not watching tv. Hopefully they will grow up with hobbies and wanting to do stuff with there spare time and money and not just bum around.

    Wow that's cool, is he doing the machineing himself? I'm dreading boring out my cylinders when I make a start. How does he get away with playing on the kitchen table ?

    Ah well he will do what he can here on his work bench in the barn then goes to one of his mates who have lathes - and have made their engines, unfortunately he's only got a wood working one! as much as he would like a metal turning one it's a case of no sorry roof must come first!

    What's wrong in him using the dinning room table? it looks a perfect place for him and he will not have to stop when it is lunch time
