The House That Never Rests

About us

Hi there, thank you for stopping by. It has been a while since our about us page has been updated. I think it was about 1.5 years ago since it was done last….Wow lots has changed since then.

A house move has taken place, Lee has left school, a job promotion and much more can all be found on the blog, if not now then very soon!
We also sadly lost our much-loved dog Buddy on the 8th March. Sadly gone but never ever forgotten.
You may or may not notice that our blog has been quiet recently, this is due to our recent house move. We moved 2.5 miles away from where we was recently living. We are still living in North London, our reasons for moving are on the blogWe are now slowly remembering what it is like to have a spare five minutes again.
Read more about us below.

Meet our family

This is Ian (Dad)

About us

Ian is a fully qualified electrician, he works 12 hour shifts about ten minutes away from home. He works nights and days. Ian is the tech geek in our house, always found with a gadget to hand. Ian also has a love of fishing, this is the reason behind our fishing holidays. His biggest fish caught to-date is a 16lb Carp – a record he is wanting to beat. Ian is Husband, Dad come Handyman/DIY expert, he can turn his hand to anything (our hero). He has saved us loads of money with his expertise/skills – tiling, woodwork, painting & decorating, plumbing, anything except gas work. With our recent move his skills have come in very handy and have saved the savings. In Ian’s spare time he likes to watch thriller films on TV, have quiet time in his man cave, go fishing, he enjoys guided walks round London (a pub crawl really) with mates, this involves stops at pubs along the way and then a curry.

Meet 17-year-old Lee

Lee is busy turning a much-loved childhood hobby into a career. Lee has a love of football, if he isn’t watching it he is playing it, if he isn’t playing it he is reading about it. Lee is currently at college studying sport, he is a huge Spurs fan. We have toured many of stadiums with Lee, Barcelona being our most recent. Lee is always found wearing sports clothing (even to sleep in), everything about Lee is sports related. Lee has a part-time job but is mainly concentrating on his studies.

Meet 15-year-old Bradley

about us

Bradley is currently preparing for his GCSES. He attends PQA which he is really enjoying, since attending he has performed on stage in the West End.  He is not camera-shy and is always found doing selfies. Bradley will always be found with his earphones in singing and dancing away to his music, that is only if he is not trialling out new styles in front of the mirror. He has recently taken up making video’s, these can be found on our YouTube channel here.

As a family we love to explore and make everyday an adventure. Having teen boys their attention can be hard to grab so we have to plan ahead and make sure there is something of their interest at the other end. Our boys are thrill-seekers and love to keep us on our toes.

We are keen campers and also LOVE to head off last-minute on camping trips, we currently have three trips booked this year already.
