My Family.

It is slowly becoming apparent to me that I like weeks or days celebrating something. Like the National Sandwich Day post. However this week in the United Kingdom it is a special week that I think should be rejoiced everyday. Yet, I am pleased it is recognised.

National Family Week.

I remember taking part in National Family Week at school and youth club. We would do activities centred around family members and what they meant to us. They also participate in the hospital I work at. Since we work alongside families and relatives everyday. I know I have mentioned my family on here before but I want to introduce them properly. They may all get on my nerves from time to time but I spend the best part of my days, weeks, months and years with them. This is just my immediate family who I am all so proud of.


This is my Dad and his name is Chris. This is an old picture from 1992 and the only picture of him on my PC. But if there is one thing you should know about my Dad is that he hates having his picture taken. This is why this photo means so much to me because he didn't realise it was being taken :) My Dad loves Football, Gardening, Cookery shows and the Motor sport. He also enjoys going to the theatre which is where I got my love for it from. He works for a huge parcel delivering firm at the moment. He is an only child so I think it is a blessing to him to have four children. One of the aspects I love about my Dad is that he hardly ever calls any of us by our name. He is always calling us his sweetheart, darling, my love or cakey.


My Mum Sally is my favourite person. I could not live without her. She works as a carer and always wanted to go into the Nursing profession. I have inherited a lot of her people skills from her which I am so thankful for. She instils the essence of what it means to be a family and is always here for us. She is super woman! My Mum adores going out with her friends, she loves going to the theatre but not a massive movie fan. She enjoys reading and watching medical shows. Her one favourite thing to do is go on holiday and now we are all older she is venturing to places she has always wanted to go but were never affordable before. I am indebted to her love, generosity and kind spirit.


This is my older sister Nicola (with her partner of 8 years Robbie). She is 7 years older than me and we never got on together as we grew up - typical fighting siblings! Since she moved out years ago we have developed a much better relationship and plan things together now :) Nicola is such a hard worker and has gained promotion after promotion in her finance job. She is a massive Cat lover! (I think all the Cats we have ever had have been hers!). She met Robbie when she was 18 at college and they have been inseparable ever since. Her favourite colour is yellow (like me!), she has the most infectious laugh and she loves planning surprises for people. Everything she has achieved in life she has 100% deserved.


Where do I start with this stinker? Rach is my younger sister by two years and boy does she have a personality! When you first meet her she is as shy as anything but when you get to know her she is a feisty lady. She is vivacious and lives very much in the moment. She likes to argue until proven right, loves the colour purple, enjoys being out rather than in. We are both absolutely in love with Glee! She is the biggest bookworm - she goes through about 2-3 books a week. The older she has gotten the more the girly she has become. She works daily in a golf club which may not be the most exciting thing for a 19 year old to do but she is happy and content :)


I was actually impressed to find a picture of Philip my younger brother smiling. It's a rarity I assure you. He is the quiet member of our family and very much keeps himself to himself. He is a typical growing 17 year old man teenager though. Hates brushing his hair, showering is seen as an effort and nothing is better than his XBOX 360. If there is one aspect of Philip I admire though is his determination despite the odds. He has always struggled at school due his dyslexia and reading skills but he never moans. He just gets on with it and has dreams of being a graphic designer. He loves comedy shows and has a very dry sense of humour. I love that he is 'Philip' and accepts himself 100% for who he is. He would never change for anybody but himself. He is a credit to our family and I do feel sorry that he is lumbered with three sisters hehe.

I love my family to pieces! As much as there are times I could kill them, I would kill to have them in my life always. I appreciate them all for who they are so much. This week just highlights that we are who we are due to our family and relatives and I would not have it any other way.

Hopefully this has encouraged to do a post introducing your family members :) 

Happy Family Week.
