My Family



Meet my family - we're a quirky bunch. 
We're noisy, we argue and whinge with the best of them, and family life can be a hair-raising rollercoaster ride, but I am determined that good times will outweigh the bad. I want my kids to grow up secure, knowing they are loved and that they will have plenty of great memories to bring a warm fuzzy glow when they look back on their childhood.
We're working on it. 
Names have been changed to protect the guilty. Here they are...

DASH, THE FIRSTBORN

Fifteen years old, and a mad keen football player, Dash is in his third year at High School. He is famous for his epic soccer skills and his ability to name all the teams and players in the English Premier League. He is a very much a teenager.






MISS FAB, THE ONLY GIRL

Fourteen-going-on-twenty-one, our newest teenager, Miss Fab, is a big personality. You can hear her coming long before she comes into view, she runs at life full-tilt (and has a cast collection to prove it). Miss Fab never sits still for long and is one of the funniest people I know. Miss Fab is also kindhearted, generous and intuitive. 

SCRAG, THE YOUNGEST

This guy is a character, a big-hearted sweetie. At ten years old, Scrag is still "the baby" (but I won't let him hear me say that). He loves rugby, football and Fifa on PS3. Scrag is empathetic, intuitive and super-tall for his age. We all dote on him.
