All About The Family

So there's me - madmumof7. 
Aged 51. 
Mum to 7

Writing about family, food, days out, holidays,tech and toys, my life past and present, chronic fatigue conditions & ASD (autism spectrum disorder) as quite a few of us are autistic, both diagnosed and self-identifying.

And DH. (Dear Husband)
well over 50 but doesn't look it (IMHO)

madmumof7's husband

Married me 27 years ago before realising that when I told him all those years ago that I wanted children that I wanted that many children. Laid back and lovely.
Loves football, F1, power tools, real ale and eating out.
