With the cracker season now in full swing you can guarantee the latest joke will be up to the usual high standard!.
Latest Blog is Here
Please take the time to read our latest offering. If you busy right now you could always read it while X Factor or Strictly Come Dancing are on.
Surely your TV set comes with an off switch!
Cricket Match Thoughts
Katie's Dad shares his thoughts of another successful Cricket Match
A Christmas Blog
It is time for Katie's Dad to share his thoughts with you again.
As Christmas inexorably approaches he struggles to see what is festive about our love affair with outdoor Christmas lights!
This week's Blog
The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed there was no blog last week.
Anyway, we are pleased to say Katie's Dad has put pen to paper and here is his latest effort..
5th February - Katie's Birthday
As some of you know this Friday (5th February) is Katie's birthday and she would have been 17. Every day without Katie is tough, it's just that Friday will be just that bit tougher.
Snow Joke It's Another Blog!
Despite the inclement weather Katie's Dad has managed to write another blog and he's moaning again!
We can only apologise about the content of this week's ramblings and also for the quality of his latest joke. Read on if you wish.
Blog Number Three
The third blog written by Katie's Dad is now available to read.
We hope you enjoy his attempts at humour and also the more serious stuff too. Don't forget the previous blogs, if not on the front page, can be found via the Articles tab.
There has been much publicity recently about the rights and wrongs of giving to charities and this will be more evident this week as Sport Relief comes to our TV screens
There should be more to charites than simply rattling a collection tin something that Eddie Izzard has proved in a big way.
13th Blog Unlucky For Some
Welcome to the 13th blog which of course could be unlucky for some. Actually for those of you who have read these blogs you will probably think yourself extremely unlucky anyway.
What We Now Know About Australia
As Katie's Daisy relaxed with a new friend Down Under Katie's Dad was learning much about a country he was unsure about.
Here are some of his findings with apologies to all the lovely people he met who were so kind. Furthermore with every ex comedian and actor in the world having taken part in one travel programme or another surely its time for Katie's Dad to have a go!
New Year's Blog
After a couple of weeks off Katie's Dad returns with a message for you all and some news about this year's Cricket Match.
Bad news is there is no joke this week, this of course maybe viewed as good news by many! A New Year is with us and those New Years Resolutions have already been broken, the weather is grotty, the trains are not running and we are all miserable.
The Latest Blog Has Arrived
Katie's Dad has been on that PC again reminiscing about our beautiful Katie.
Please have a read and we hope you enjoy this week's joke - it's of the usual standard.
At Last - A New Blog
It's been a while since Katie's Dad shared his thoughts with you so read on. We promise there is not a mention of the word “coalition” anywhere.
Another week, another blog!
Katie's Dad has been gathering his thoughts over the last seven days and has decided to share them with you.
You lucky people!
Second Blog Is Here!
Like London Buses you wait all that time for one Blog and two come along almost at once!
Katie's Dad has written his second piece, hope you find it enjoyable.
More From Katie's Dad
Here I go again with some more moans, some news about the Cricket Match and a really bad joke that you cannot blame me for!
So here is the latest blog though it's a bit Ronnie Corbett - shorter than normal.
A New Blog
Katie's Dad has found his keyboard and has deigned to share his latest words of wisdom with us.
It is a wonder his computer has survived as after Southend United's run of bad results on and off the field in 2010 a number of household items have been hurled at various walls.
The New Blog - Old Ones Too
Bet you thought, or hoped, he had forgotten.
No such luck, here is the latest from the keyboard of Katie's Dad as he does a fine impression of Ebenezer Scrooge as Christmas draws ever nearer. Also, thanks to our friends at weaveaweb you can now look at the old blogs via the blog tab above.
It's Here - Katie's Dad's First Blog
Here it is, Katie's Dad's first blog. We hope you enjoy his first effort.
Now he knows what a blog is you can enjoy his thoughts and hopefully it wont be too long until the next one. Please read on......
Another Blog & He's Still Moaning
You would think the New Year might have chilled him out a bit, especially in all the bad weather.
Anyway, if you cannot stomach anymore then please at least check out a beautiful photo of Katie.
The Seventh Blog is Here
The seventh blog has arrived – Katie's Dad cannot believe he has inflicted so many on you already!
Oh well, read on and we hope you enjoy it. Beware of the bad joke though.
Katie at Play - A New Blog
We all know that Katie loved playing games and she was particularly good at them!
Even when she was unwell she would always be up for a game, normally winning. In this week's blog Katie's Dad looks back with fondness at some of the games played.
Katie's Legacy - A Blog
As we enter our fourth year without Katie we often stop and think about the way we are dealing with our loss.
Should we be doing this, behaving like that or feeling in a particular way. A bereavement counsellor once said to me that your grief is your own and you should deal with how you feel is right. Please read on....
