Family is very important to me. I have two lovely children and 7 delightful grandchildren/step-grandchildren. It’s wonderful to watch them grow and develop. The best thing is to see the way they develop as individuals and become real people in their own right.
The most depressing thing, though, is seeing that they have inherited all the best bits of your partner – and the worst bits of yourself.
(Not that I have any worst bits, of course)
