  • What a wonderful time to chronicle the progress of my family:

    Madeleine, my first daughter, who has a Marine Biology degree, married Dan in Ireland; and has three sons, Cal, Theo and Rowan; has just started work as a Lab technician in a local secondary school. This is an important step as she has not worked since she had her last baby.
    It is my pleasure, to care for my three grandsons, taking a break from writing; whilst she is at work, when they come home from school and when they are sick or on holiday. Their presence in my home fills me with positive energy and joy.

    Cal, 10, has just passed his exam as an entrance to grammar school; Theo, 8, is an amazing philosopher; his latest remark was – 'what if there was no reality any more'; and Rowan, 6 years old, is full of energy and creativity.

    Sam, my second daughter, who has a degree in sociology, is an interior designer in London, and has just had a baby girl, Ruby. Dale her husband is thrilled.

    Dem, my son has a Chemistry PhD, Electrochemical biosensors and is now a Personal Fundraiser at Sustrans and has lives in Bristol with his partner Kate.
