Years of marriage under my belt. Got married in ’09 so can calculate hands-free.
Averagely lovely, maximum hilarious, high input children whom I love ten out of ten 90% of the time.

Dressing gowns. Neither ever washed. One I bought myself for a birthday treat to manage the in-between temperatures.
Years of secondary teaching.

Loving parents and
And a whole world still to see.
