My brood. No 1 son, No 1 daughter, and No 2 son.



Here he is, in all his splendour. I think I've said before that No 1 son, Kimbo, has always been (in my mind) an exemplary person. He had his aims and ambitions, and has achieved them all (so far). Well done.

It's good when one can say with total honesty that one likes one's own children, and all three of mine have turned out to be really nice people. 

                                                

Tenpin isn't as forthcoming with new photographs as the other two, but I recently found this one on Facebook. Just imagining her crossing some Rajasthan desert with a couple of Camels makes me smile. I never know quite what's coming next with Ten'; she keeps us surprised. She has also done very well in life.


And finally, here is young Wills at the helm of some boat, on the Aussie high seas..... Aye Aye Cap'n. Wills is the property tycoon of the family..... where will it end?

So, a very special 'Happy Christmas' to each of my three my darlings. I'll speak with you soon!

p.s. The big question is 'WHO SENT THE FORTNUM'S HAMPER?'

  2. No need to brood about this brood. Three great characters all doing their thing. It's in the genes!

    1. They are all 'go-getters'. Nothing is beyond their scope.

  3. I have always admired your family. They are doing well with their life, and I would be very proud of them too; they've had good loving parents. Congtatulations to a beautiful family, and very well done to you and Lady M.

    1. Thank you Maria, but I think all the credit should go to the 'children'; they made their own wise decisions in life.

    2. Very true, but they grew up in a loving environment, with parents giving good examples, both sides get merits.

  4. It must be quite satisfying to have brought up three well adjusted and high achieving children. No doubt their mother was part of this too. Not that I will ever know and I think I would have been a lousy parent anyway.

    1. It's certainly good to know that none of them has seen the inside of a prison or courtroom, or had to spend months in re-hab, or has become a crazy politician.

  5. And the other big question, where are the presents from the other two?

    1. We never expect anything from them, they have their own children to buy for; but it's always nice if they do send something.

    2. I was only saying it tongue in cheek!

  6. You are right to be proud of your family, they have done well for themselves.

    1. I spit on myself too, sometimes. I think we did OK.

  9. you did well.
    Perhaps the hamper was a joint effort to keep you guessing!

    1. We are all proud of our children, but some actually merit it.

  11. I prefer your daughter and
    youngest son, they two got a smile on their face. The so called Kimbo looks tough, but well you are proud of them all which seems to be normal.

    1. Kimbo takes after me.... he smiles all the time, other than when he's having his photo taken.

  12. Having looked at the picture of Kimbo, my first thought was what a great shot of Cro as a young man.

    1. I've only just received that picture, and I thought much the same.

  13. Kimbo is certainly a chip of the old block isn't he ?!!!
    You and Lady M have three children to be proud of ..... and, of course, grandchildren. It's lovely as parents to see them all doing well and are happy isn't it ? XXXX

    1. It certainly is; especially when one sees so much of the opposite.

  14. Your children are happy and adventurous. It is nice to hear you say so how proud you and Lady M are. The hamper is from Santa.

    1. They certainly have been adventurous; nothing holds them back. I'm almost jealous.

  15. Isn't it good when one is totally proud of one's children?
    Oh and by the way - it wasn't me who sent that hamper.
