Ruth & Daniel
These are my two children, Daniel born 8th April 1989 and Ruth, born 30th May 1987. The pictures were taken on December 28th, 2000 after a surprise snow fall.
Now they are both teenagers and as such continue to make me proud, whilst at the same time giving me many a sleepless night worrying about their adventures.
I won't embarrass them by publishing lots of baby photos, however I will say that being present when they were born will probably be the most moving and memorable events of my life.
I said I wouldn't publish lots of baby pictures, but I think we need at least one don't you? So cute!
This is Ruth.
This is Daniel.
|Ruth is interested in art and 60s pop culture, she listens to seventies heavy rock such as Rainbow and Uriah Heep. She also listens to heavy metal and used to learn the drums. She has now given that up and has progressed to DJ skills. This Christmas she was given some mixing Decks, a very loud present, oops! She is very creative and loves anything that makes a mess! She also likes photography and takes pictures at the local skate-park. She loves cult TV and films, such as Pulp fiction, Trainspotting, Apocalypse Now and The Godfather. She also loves being involved with school productions and is considering a career in this area.
Here is a more recent picture of Ruth, taken in May 2002. I not sure about the collar and hair colour, but her ever changing style reflects her personality!
Daniel likes skating and skateboarding. When he is not at the local skate-park he is often to be found street skating which involves using the urban environment to skate such as jumping gaps and grinding ledges and curbs. His latest achievement is jumping a set of ten stairs at his favourite spot by the river in Kingston.
They both attend schools near in Surrey where they live with their mother. I am trying to encourage them to write their own home pages to tell you more, but not much happening so far!
