Introduction I'm a very happily married man, with five and a half children, four and a half sons and a daughter. One of my sons is very special and goes to a school that can handle just how special he is. He is a son-and-a-half in the nicest possible way. I'm also a Catholic primary teacher in Scotland and my wife is the most beautiful woman in the world. She's really a rock star's wife so I don't know what happened there. Nevertheless, I know I can often see the glass half empty so I hope this blog provides a bit of balance for me and whoever reads it. We are all children of a Good God after all.
