These are my two amazing children – I am so very proud of them both and they are a source of immense joy for me. I cannot believe how they are growing!

James is now 22 and after thoroughly enjoying his time at Cardiff University he graduated in physiotherapy in 2012 and started working for the NHS at Kingston Hospital. Immensely proud Mummy! Lizzie is now 16 and is studying hard at school – she excels in most subjects and so, like her brother, is a great all-rounder. And she has aspirations to study medicine or veterinary science. Wow!

James played rugby at school in Twickenham (for years they were Middlesex champions) and also at London-Irish. I hope he returns to this now his studies are finished although he spends a lot of time at the gym.

Lizzie is excelling at dance. She has studied ballet and tap dancing for many years and passed numerous exams – and she is a great performer. Those GCSEs are taking up all her time at present – keep studying!
