All About Us

Family 2016

We are the Clutterbucks, a family created through birth and adoption. We are disorganised and messy. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t because of the children, Eddie and I were like this before they came in to our lives. They didn’t stand a chance! Our home is what a kind friend describes as ‘shabby chic’. In reality, on occasions it is more like an episode from the Hoarder Next Door. We can never find anything and scrabble around every morning looking for shoes, socks, keys and missing school letters that urgently need signing. I am the sort of terrible mother who turns up at the  school gate hot and flustered having forgotten that it is ‘non-school uniform day’. To add to the chaos we have a teenager who is not revising for exams, an eight year old with behavioural problems and learning difficulties and a very curious and increasingly vocal two year old. Oh, I mustn’t forget our bouncy Springer Spaniel, who is becoming quite neurotic in his middle-age barking incessantly at thin air and last but not least, the latest additions to our family, two little kittens who literally climb the curtains. Life is very colourful and never dull! This is our story. Let me introduce you to everyone:
