Imaginosity – Dublin Children’s Museum Review

‘This place is for kids?! – we’ll then, I’m the biggest kid of them all in that case‘ I said to The Stented Missus as we were leaving. Seriously, don’t mind the Nips, I had a ball at Imaginosity last weekend! But as the Mrs told me, ‘It’s not about you sunshine’ – fair point! There was…

Your Health is Your Wealth

So even though my tag line for The Stented Papa reads ‘Tales, Stories & Opinions from a (new) Stay-At-Home-Dad, The Missus, Our 2 Beautiful Girls, The Woofie and oh yeah…..My 4 Stents’ it’s just dawned on me that I very seldom actually write about my stents. Or my heart disease (angina) in general if I’m honest….
