I was standing in the middle of Morrisons reading this, yelling to my mum- 'I've found a Joey! She's an author and everything!'
Not surprisingly I got some strange looks

#3: Author: MissPrint, Location: EdinburghPosted: Fri Nov 05, 2004 4:03 am Indeed, and look at how much veggies and fruit they don't buy. How about "Scurvy at the Chalet School" for her next book title?

And the amount of fizzy drink they get through?
Coca-Cola - sponsoring The Chalet School

I'm glad I'm not the only person to notice that. Mind you, without Anna and Rosli on hand she probably doesn't have much time for cooking.
#9: Author: claire, Location: South WalesPosted: Fri Nov 05, 2004 8:41 pm Reading a book the other day about social history etc with midwives there was mention of a mother who had had triplets and two sets of twins and at least two singletons (if it wasn't for the fact that the singletons came first I could have believed it was Joey - she had the singletons in a nursing home then the triplets and both sets of twins at home)
#10: Author: Xanthe, Location: London/CambridgePosted: Sat Nov 06, 2004 10:42 am I know someone who has thirteen children... no multiple births either
#11: Author: Jennie, Location: CambridgeshirePosted: Sat Nov 06, 2004 10:55 am And how does she cope, Xanthe?
PS: I once watched a TV programme about people with large families. One woman seemed to concentrate on having the babies, then her elder children did all the work!
#12: Author: Xanthe, Location: London/CambridgePosted: Sat Nov 06, 2004 10:58 am Very well - she's just very organised I think!
She also runs a nursery school these days, which might help I guess!
#13: Author: Jennie, Location: CambridgeshirePosted: Sat Nov 06, 2004 11:51 am She must be mad!
