For the best Daddy (and a JORD competition!)

He doesn’t appear very often on my blog or on my instagram and I rarely write about him, we don’t need to publicly declare our love and it goes without saying that he’s a great dad. But actually I am going to say it. If this little blog is going to be a record of how our life looks now, then this picture of Annie and her daddy says it all. JORD got in touch with me and asked if I’d like to review their wood watches and I decided it would be a great chance to give my lovely husband a thank you gift for being so amazing.

The past couple of months since I’ve been commuting to an office once again, he’s had to pick up all the slack at home. He always helped out anyway, we’ve probably shared school and nursery runs 50/50 but now it’s pretty much always him. And when Annie was first born he did a 4 day week to spend time with her, so he’s pretty happy to be doing the same now with Evan. He likes being with the kids as much as I do and you can tell they love us equally. I know not every child is so lucky to have both parents be so hands on. So this is my public thank you to my husband, please consider this your valentines / father’s day and birthday present for this year!

Anyway, onto the review. I chose the Conway Kosso & Midnight Blue for him because he couldn’t decide, he liked the Sawyer series and the Dover series and pretty much every colourway of them all. I thought this one would go well with his navy blue suit as well as a couple of his shirts and jumpers. It arrived quicker than I expected from the US, around 2 weeks I think. There was a customs charge of about £16 because it costs over £135, so make sure you order when you’ve got time to get to the post office. Luckily my husband was pretty excited about this arriving so he offered to get it!

The packaging is gorgeous, it’s a solid wooden box which will now be living on my husbands bedside table. The watch itself is so much nicer in real life than I was expecting but I think wooden items always are – it’s such a tactile material. The colours are exactly what I was hoping for, it’s such a rich coloured wood and it goes beautifully with the midnight blue face. My husband is made up, he’s wearing it at every opportunity.

N.B. Thank you to JORD for sending the watch in exchange for an honest review.
