Welcome to Dadlife.

Dadlife is Australia’s newest “dad blog”.

So what’s this all about? My name is Martin, I live in Perth and I’m on the wrong side of 40. Local foodies may know me from my food blog Morsels.  In early 2016 I decided it was time for a career change, and left 22 years in IT behind to focus on becoming a freelance food writer. This  move was also part of a longer-term strategy to establish myself as being able to work from home if we had a child. Now have a son due mid-December 2017.

At the time I write this we’re just over half way, and everything is going to plan so far. Reality hasn’t quite set in yet, but it’s not far away.

I’ve had children in my life before, but this is the first of my own (and my first experience with a baby) so it’s going to be an interesting journey. I’m hoping to make this blog informative and useful, not just a diary of my daily trials and tribulations. I’m already Dad to three cats, so expect to see them too.
