Family information

My daughter is very sporty. She loves gymnastics, dancing, swimming and just being very active. At school she plays hockey, netball and football. She also enjoys horse- riding. Even though my son lives with me during the week, during the school holidays he helps his dad with his joinery business and therefore he mainly stays with him in Banbury and only join us for a day or so during the week. He is a good athlete, competing in many competitions, representing his school. He loves his BMX and any outdoor activities. My partner likes football, but now he mainly watches it rather then playing it. We are all keen on walking. I read a wide variety of novels ranging from history to current affairs. I have an interest in modern and classical music and play the piano. I enjoy winter sports such as ice skating, skiing, in which I successfully competed in the past. We all love skiing/snowboarding. I also take interest in water sports. I successfully obtained an International Lifeguard Diploma.
