My Family

Hello Lovely people,
I hope you are having a awesome day.

So I was a bit quite this week/weekend, as I said in my previous post I had been working on my proposal for my dissertation in the week and then unfortunately I have seemed to have picked up a bug and have been in bed all weekend :(

I am still not feeling 100% and as I write this I am snuggled in bed with a cuppa. I am hopping it will pass soon, ok that's enough of me being a misery guts, let me get on with my post.

Well as I am in no fit state to be providing you with a what I wore post, mostly because it's been my PJ's all weekend I have been trying to think of something else to write about so as a follow on from my Spectacular Spec post I thought I would introduce you to my family.

Lets start at the top with my mum and dad, now my dad is actually my step dad but he has been around since I was 4 or 5 so to me he is my dad. We call him Pat or more specifically I call him paprika :)
He is the most wonderful dad in the world and although I don't call him dad (long story my older sister wouldn't let us) I am so thankfully that he has been there for me, my mum and my sisters.

Then we have Sabrina and her other half Steve, she is the oldest she has two children Macey (8) and Evie (5 mths).

I love them both so much, they make me so broody and I can't wait for July as I will be looking after them for a whole week.

Then we have Charlene who is the second eldest and my nephew Jerome (2) or as I call him JJ. Charlene was the naughty one growing up and when we teenagers my mum made me go out with her to keep her out of trouble, which I did 90% of the time. A girl can only do so much when her older sister is 6ft tall and determined to get in trouble, or so it would have seemed.
(I can't seem to find a more up to date photo of JJ must get my camera out next time he is round)

Next we have the youngest of us four girls Becky or as I like to call her Spec, Becky hasn't got children thankfully. I say thankfully because I would be concerned she would forget them on the bus or trade them in :) Becky loves Macey, JJ and Evie but she is not maternal at all, she loves giving them back and although she might surprise me I couldn't see her having kids at all. I think she just likes being the cool Auntie, who goes to gigs and buys cool presents.

Last but by no means least I would like to include Mr Rob my fiancé, I plan to do a post about Roberto and I, how we met but I can't not include him in a post about my family. We have been together almost 7 years and he is most definitely part of the family now.

Here he is looking flashy with a Ferrari he had been driving on a track day that I treated him to as an anniversary present last year.

Oh I almost forgot one very important member of my family and that is my dog Alfred, he is such a lovely dog. He is very excitable and is always getting into mischief but I think that is what makes him so cute.

So that's my family, we are all very close but yes we do bicker from time to time as most families do and although they can sometimes drive me up the wall I love them all very much.

I'd love to hear about yours :)
Ciao for now.
