All About The Family


So there's me - madmumof7. 
Aged very close to 50. 
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,)


And DH. (Dear Husband)
over 50 but doesn't look it (IMHO)
Married me almost 25 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, power tools, real ale and eating out.


DS#1 (Dear Son)

Aged 23.

My baby, now towers above me, ambitious and hard working. Living in Southsea, Portsmouth and working in recruitment in Whiteley but very much still part of our family. Partner to FDIL (future daughter in law) - more details below.

PLUS 2 (slightly mad) adopted cats Oscar  and Jasper and 1 fish called sparkles plus many more tropical fish who move too fast to be named.
