  • It's hard to believe this picture was taken nearly a year ago already. This is David my eldest son, he wasn't in the mood for getting his picture taken. The only reason he allowed it to happen was because they were to be part of a surprise for his Mum.

    For a fourteen year old everything that a parent asks you to do is questioned. Nine times out of ten the response to any question is "Why?" followed by "Can't Dylan do it", Dylan being his younger brother and part time goffer. I hope David keeps asking Why? as he gets older, not to be stubborn (which I'm sure he will be anyway) just because it has got to be one of the best ways to learn.
