Long suffering husband, best friend and (at times) fifth child!
Source of my inspiration, my biggest supporter and soul mate.
Usually found in front of a computer or outside mowing the lawn...
Son number One.
Kind, caring, diligent and sensitive. Definitely not doing "his bit" to prepare me for parenting teenagers as he's pretty easy going and considerate.
Famous on YouTube and teaching himself web craft and Java programming whilst running competitively when that and homework allows!
Outdoor-type happiest in a tent or trekking with his mates through the wilds of Suffolk.
Son number Two.
Unique. Exhausting. Opinionated. Inspiring. Subscribes to a different life philosophy from the rest of
us, thinks he’s ready to take on the World but I’m not sure its ready for him. Expert on many topics and YouTube guru. Likely to make a name for himself one day, his determination does him credit when channelled in a positive direction!
In his own words "an Evil Genius looking to rent a hollowed out volcano with my sidekick Rosie." (Rosie being his cat...)Has more diagnoses than there are days in the week with Asperger's, ADHD, Dyspraxia, Hypermobility, Reynaud's and gut issues amongst them. Don't for one minute believe they define him or limit his horizons.
Son number Three.
Eccentric. Definitely unique. Slightly quirky... but completely determined, single minded and quietly driven. Musical, creative with a possible future career on stage with the Cambridge "Footlights".
Extremely able, follows his own agenda and totally lives in the present. Will probably solve the future energy crisis single-handed and the solution is bound to involve a crane, Sellotape, linkies and a LOT of detailed plans.
...and last but definitely not least, Daughter number One.
Eager to please, loving, incredibly capable and determined. Opinionated yet sensitive and with a life plan already. She might be the youngest (only by 10 minutes I might add) and have 3 older brothers but not one to be ignored. Muscial and artistic, would like to live in a remote cottage with a hundred animals (mostly dogs) and draw/paint all day.
