The Owens from Ravenseat come for tea

Most years we invite Clive and Amanda Owen and their children for tea at Christmas time.  I call it having my 'little people fix'!  As their family grows we squeeze an extra chair around the table and the children all tuck into a party tea.  Clive and Amanda have seven children (Annas is just out of shot as she is in her Mum's arms).  The children are a credit to their parents; they are all polite, helpful, have lovely table manners and eat everything that is put in front of them.  Even little Sidney, at just 2 years old, sits at the table and has his tea like everyone else.  Amanda has a book coming out next year called the Yorkshire Shepherdess and we wish her every success with it however I think her next book should be about parenting skills, a lot could be learnt from this super family.
