Welcome to the (Impractical) Dad blog!
My name is Olly Jakes and I have just become a father for the first time. I wanted to start a blog that highlights my experience in the lead up to the birth and beyond. My wife, Claire, and I hadn’t even been trying that long when we found out so we are super lucky, as I know all to well that it isn’t always that easy.
So the name of the blog, (Impractical) Dad, why that? Simply I’m not a particularly practical guy, which I unfortunately feel is a common trait in young men across the UK. I’m not completely impractical just I could do with a steer in the right direction, but hey what can go wrong over the next 9 months and beyond!?!
I am always looking for new and exciting opportunities to get involved in, so if you want to get in touch, please don’t hesitate.
