Mr Furlong and I brought up five children.
I don’t know how we did it.
They all turned out OK.
Our grandchildren range from thirty something to three something.
I know the older ones are alive because we occasionally chat on WhatsApp.
I know the young grandchildren are alive because they physically come to visit us.
Everytime they do, I realise how amazing Mr Furlong and I are. We brought up five children altogether all at once!
We cannot fathom how we managed.
But if there is something perculiar about us, that’s what did it.
