We are family of two adults and two kids. James was born in 2003 and Trassa in 2007. Christy and I are both Irish but we have lived in Edinburgh for over 20 years. We both play squash and the kids play a variety of sports. We also have two cats - Molly and Tiger and some Vietnamese stick insects. Christy is a micro electronic engineer and I am a civil servant. I love being near water and have always lived in coastal cities. Christy is a country boy and isn't so fussed about water.
