Brother 1 - carpenter, then cab driver, now works for AO delivering fridges. Leyton Orient supporter as well. Bit of a knob.
Brother 2 - Retired now, but worked for American oil companies all over the world. Lot of a knob.
Sister - Mum until about 15yrs ago, then lived her life in reverse, got a load of qualifications and now works providing social housing for people with learning difficulties. Now dating a millionaire (who's a very nice bloke) - always falls on her feet, but she's lovely so thats good.

About it, nothing of note - though I've got about 100 cousins, 1st cousins etc. I've met about 3 of them, so who knows. I believe one is a big lawyer and is something to do with Chelsea FC. Still, could be a knob.

one cousin is an assistant director. He stayed with us when filming an Indiana Jones at Tilbury docks years ago. He's a mad keen Blues fan and goes when they are around the Henley area. His brother has a BAFTA for The Thick of It and produced In the Loop among other things. He's doing the Detectorists at the moment. Both were at the playoff final. My side of the family are the boring ones.

Nothing glamorous in my lot. Paternal grandfather was a chippy by trade working at Bartrums in Fairfax Drive, we have several pieces of furniture amongst us that he made. He was an ARP warden during WWII. His wife, my nan, was an office worker, buried their first born when he was just a couple of days old, then had my dad pre-WWII and his siblings post WWII.

Maternal grandfather died before I was born, he was a thatcher by trade and spent most of WWI on a sheep farm in NZ. He left my nan a widow, with my mum aged just 13, they ended up in Southchurch Rectory Chase.

My brother works at Alexander House in Vic Ave, he looks like a tramp at the best of time and is a total knob.

my grandfather came to London as a lad, joined an engineering firm in Albert Dock Road and ended up being the boss. He was a Tory Councillor and chairman of the Libraries and Museum Committee in the 1930s and 40s. He built the first house on the south side of First Avenue.
