Mark is very easy-going and can talk to anybody. He used to be a youth worker and is great with the kids. Our neighbour's son once asked him to go on holiday with them and if it snows the kids on the street knock on for him to go out and have a snowball fight!
He's calm and collected but can step up to the mark if he needs to. He makes a mean fry-up and can stick oil in the car as well as a load in the washing machine.
But I have learnt never to ask him to do any DIY, he has no interest in it whatsoever and seems to take great pride in just how bad the finished product is!
His enthusiasm for watches compares to nothing else and I hope one day he achieves his ambition of getting to meet his watchmaker.

Amy turned 13 this year while on a school trip to PARIS. She actually spent her birthday up the Eiffel Tower, lucky thing.
You can always tell when Amy is home, she leaves a trail of things arounds the house, wet towels on everybody's bed apart from her own and can be heard singing at the top of her voice.
She loves relaxing in the 'summer house' with a good book while listening to music and she makes delicious cakes. She's always happy and smiling and so far we haven't had too many moody teenager episodes. Totally Loveable!

Thomas is a sensitive little soul with a real sense of right and wrong. He's a stickler for rules and health & safety issues! He goes about his business in an under-stated quiet way and demands very little from us.
He's a lovely little boy and is happiest playing out with his friends, going to the park or on his x-box. Totally Adorable!
Hope you enjoyed meeting us.
