We are Tom and Kate (let's spare our blushes by saying mid-40s, yes?), Samuel (6) and Zachary (4). Tom is trying to finish a doctorate and doing consultancy on the side; Kate is a part-time government solicitor. Sam is at the nearby school and Zack the local nursery. We're keen cyclists and enjoy our music - Tom sings in a local choir. Tom and Kate are both genuine Londoners though we have gravitated to north London, having been born in the west and south, respectively. The age and gender of our children determine a good deal about our leisure time: Star Wars Angry Birds, Scooby Doo and, now, Harry Potter. When able to, Tom and Kate like to cook and attempt the occasional crossword. Keen cinema-goers before kids, we now rely on Lovefilm.
