Another post by Marty

A good Mum,

I know how hard it is to be a good mum, I have done the staying at home with the kids thing while she was working, I have taken everything on when she has been unwell, and its the hardest job I have ever had to do, by a mile!

Venus is a Rock at the moment, on the go all the time. She is the engine room in this family, coping with everything, working so hard with Barney, knowing when to be soft and when to be firm. Working hard with the other kids and the house too. (A family this size and the house does not run itself) As well as that she is having to put up with me.

She has to find time to put "plans of action" into place, read books and attend meetings and support groups.

Social workers, doctors, Cenco`s, occupational therapists, teachers and head teachers, courses, forms, leaflets etc, etc etc, etc.

I would be totally lost without her.

Daddy time

Some photos from Steve's phone. He likes to take Rosie for little walks, or trips to Starbucks. She's a right Daddy's little girl. He recently uploaded the photos from his mobile phone and I thought I'd make a little display of them.

A Blog post by Marty,

The blog that Venus does is truly amazing and I love it. Its great to look back on all the things we have done as a family as well as a reminder of difficult and troubled times that every family has to overcome.

I just wanted people to know and I have chosen this way to tell people that I am having quite alot of personal difficulties at the moment. I am putting extra strain on this already tough family life.

Venus is supporting me in what I need to do; that is to spend some time away at mums and to look after the kids at weekends. This will be very Hard for Venus and the kids but its something I have to do.

I have never really put myself first in any situation in life and I am going to at this time. Mum is great to get on with and I love spending time with her, she always works long hours so I get a beautiful house in the country to myself as well (thanks mum x)

Myself and Venus are still the best friends and I don't really wish to go into my difficulties with anyone, so no awkward silences, just don't bring the subject up; if I need someone to talk to someone, I will ask :0)

Thought it would send tongues wagging if people thought we were apart the whole time.

Thanks in advance for your understanding. xxx
