Coming to end of my series getting to know you and this week I’m getting to know quite a popular blogger called Three Time Daddy.
I kindly asked him if I could interview him and of course being the cool guy he is said yes.
So here it is getting to know Three Time Daddy:
Can you tell us about yourself a little bit?
I am Three Time Daddy and I have, er, three kids – two boys and a girl. They are aged 8, 4 and 1 and I started writing a blog about it last summer.
What would you say your profile picture says about you?
I keep changing it, so it’s probably my indecisiveness. I also try to hide behind my kids’ faces rather than inflict my own on the world.
Do you prefer day time or night time?
Day time, but I like having quiet time in the evenings when the kids are in bed.
If your friends could describe you in one word what do you think it would be?
Whats your fondest memory?
When my first son was born, it was via c-section and I got to hold him all by myself for a whole hour whilst my wife was in recovery. I did nothing but sit, he did nothing but sleep, but I will never forget how amazing it felt.
Do you have any hobbies?
I try to write things that aren’t blog-related, I used to play the bass, I try to read, but generally, due to lack of time and energy, my children have become my hobbies.
What annoys you?
People. People being rude, or ignorant, or inconsiderate, or lazy and expecting someone else to do everything for them.
What makes you happy?
Being there when my kids learn something new and seeing the little sparkle in their eye when they’ve cracked it.
If you were stranded on a desert island with 3 things what would they be?
I guess it would be pizza, my ipod (including some sort of solar-powered contraption to keep the batteries topped up) and a bottle of single malt.
Can you tell us something that nobody would know about you?
I have a fear of failure and it often leaves me struggling with self-doubt. Behind all the social media profiles, I’m probably not as happy as you think.
Who’s your biggest inspiration?
For me it would probably be people like Neil Gaiman and David Mitchell (the writer). I love how their books can transport you to other worlds and leave you feeling slightly different when you’ve finished them.
What your biggest fear?
Not being able to support my children, whether emotionally or financially.
Whats your guilty pleasure?
I don’t actually believe in guilty pleasures anymore – if you enjoy something, shout about it. I love La La Land. So there.
Do you have a nickname?
Not since school, which is a long time ago
Now Time for Quick Fire Questions?

Leader in my own head.

Wealthy and sad or Poor and Happy?

Finally please can you tell us something you like about yourself?
My patience and creativity.
Thank you very much for answering my questions and I wish you all the best in the future.
