HELLO

I'm Jamie DAY (hence, A DAY In The Life - see what I've done there, clever right?) I'm dad/climbing frame/ponytail fixer/train track builder to Edie and Arlo and I'm also an award winning blogger – no, really! I won Best Baby Blog at the MAD Awards 2016 (Mums and Dads Blog Awards).

As well as this blog, I'm also the new Editor of Father Inc. - a brilliant blogzine for dads, brought to you by the people behind Selfish Mother. I also contribute monthly pieces to GQ Magazine, Little London Magazine and Fifi & Friends and I regularly collaborate with major brands on advertising campaigns. See my collaborations page for more.

Originally from Essex, I moved with my two dogs to London in my twenties. It's there where I met my wife Georgia. During a whirlwind first couple of years we moved in together in North London, then moved out to the Berkshire countryside, changed careers, started a family and got married - blimey eh?!

I changed my career to work in education, leaving behind the swanky suits of London for a lifetime of finding glitter in my hair. Because of my job, I get the time for the most wonderful adventures with my children. Whether we're climbing trees, covering ourselves in paint or visiting a farm, I like to document as much of it as possible through my blog and social media. 

I'm interested in music, fashion, interiors, property, football and creative writing, but above all, spending time with Georgia, our dogs and of course our children, Edie and Arlo.

My tales embody joy and the occasional woe, inspired by the cocktail of children, dogs, my wife and our lifestyle - a glimpse into a day in the life of a modern day dad.
