A Snapshot from The Youthblog household

Arriving home from a meeting with some Swedish Youth workers, my daughter met me by the car. As we strolled towards the front door of Macdonald Towers I saw the sledge leaning against the wall!
“Why?”, I asked my daughter, “is the sledge out?”
“Oh,” she replied, “because S (youngest son) was sledging down the stairs UNTIL mum found out!”
It sometimes feels like Outnumbered is based on our family, we became even more convinced of this when in this series the parents were talking about having being married EXACTLY the same time as my wife and I, 17 years!
