He’s my fixer , painter , toilet seat mender. Also my spider remover. He’s very handy. Likes doing jobs. But nowadays only for money
He’s just started college to do level 2 plumbing. He’s my clumsy one. He had 3 broken ankles in a row , left , right , left. He also stuck his hand up the Hoover when he was almost 1 and took a whole chunk of skin right off. Since he was a toddler and was always flooding my bathroom playing with the taps I said he’d be a plumber , looks like I was right.

Z is my funny little ginger nut.
She’s a little shy , she used to be very quiet. But not so much since she started big school. I worry as she’s always the youngest in her class. But she has blossomed this year. And become as chatty outside as she has always been at home.
She has a real flair for style. Clothes. Make up. Hair. She loves it all. She’s so Girly. She already loves handbags. And sleeps with curlers in.

She’s cried all the way through a few. War horse and Hachi were emotional for her. ( and for me)
