Family information

I live with my partner, we are both in our 20s. There is a park right beside our house where we spend time kicking a football and just relaxing on the grass. My partner loves playing and watching football and is getting back to playing with his local team after having a sports injury. We have a nice garden we’re we have barbecues when the weather is nice. I enjoy Irish dancing and also I like to play the piano.
