We took Charlotte out of school when she was five to home educate and have been enjoying it ever since; Isobel and David and Emily never started school. It has rapidly become a way of life and thinking that we wouldn't change for anything.
I play the clarinet2 and recorder3, and own a saxophone and a piano accordion4. Along with the rest of my family I have written and performed puppet shows - we used to do them for fetes and parties and suchlike - and I enjoy needlework and painting (among other crafts).
I have been known to make and repair violins5 but my varnishing isn't very good.
I have five sisters, and five brothers-in-law, along with eight nieces and two nephews. The younger nephew was born within an hour of Isobel. Luckily he was born after her; he was due (supposedly) six weeks after her, and with the frustration of going two weeks overdue it would have been the last straw if he'd come the weekend before as he nearly did.
James has three sisters too, one of whom has two daughters. David is a bit out-numbered on both sides.
