|Monica "Mum" Penn||An anchor, painter, a poet and top Mum.
And me, well, I am the family kicking post! Someone said "the midwife delivered your children, and you have been delivering them by car ever since".
|Gerald "The Big Gezza" Penn||The pater of the family, Gerald known as The Big Gezza whose passions in life are classic cars, cricket, beer, old churches, wine and of course, his wife and children and grandchildren. Gezza is a Very Big Man in all ways. Likes to wear pastel colours.|
|Ruth Gibbard||Grandma, sharp as ever.|
|Ginny Marsh||Virginia Ruth, an English degree student, was once compared to a blizzard. Married to Richard.|
|Giles Penn||Family accountant and an expert on Geordie culture, pig-mating and imitating people from Suffolk. Married to Jackie.|
|Philip Penn||Introvert and family black sheep.|
|Henry Penn||Is there a doctor in the house? Got the lion's share of the family brains, shared out with Bozza. They're twins.|
|Robert Penn||Qu'est-ce-qu'on peut dire about this no-nonsense, pretention-free, law-abiding/adjudicating member of the Penn household? Salve!|
|Libby Penn||Voted by her school to be the next Mrs Thatcher, Libby is not one to shy away from verbally challenging her elders.|
|Thomas Marsh||His vocabulary currently consists of 'golly,golly,golly' (next month's curriculum to include 'gosh').|
|William Penn||Not an easy start in life - grim Northern Town Birth, overbearing name etc|
|Richard Marsh||Married to Ginny. Has known her since birth. They are not blood related.|
|Jackie Penn||Married to Giles (the cheque's in the post). Australian but not very okka.|
|Sophie Marsh||Not afraid to use her lungs, she's been blessed with an old sea dog for a godfather.|
|George Penn||Future soul singer, how's he going to cope with being Wills "Bruiser" Penn's junior sidekick? Stay tuned.|
|Eleanor Marsh||Latest addition from the Marsh Clan.|
|Bez (RIP)||Spiritual Leader / Burglar Deterrent.
Bezza the dog, the retriever who never barks, never learnt to lift his leg, and is the only animal ever to have eaten a complete takeaway curry - complete with the tinfoil container! Was once spray-painted pink by the next-door neighbours (jealousy).
