    Mum was a French teacher then SEN teacher.

    Dad managed a team of IT-type people that worked in an office, despite knowing little about computers - and I'm ashamed to say I still don't know exactly what he did apart from eat KitKats. He graduated from Oxford in Modern Languages and occasionally travelled abroad when he was younger, so I'm now thinking... spy

    Both now retired.

    Dad has worked in the Indian catering industry all his time here, starting off as a waiter when he first moved to this country, then working his way up to a chef. Before he moved here though, he worked in Abu Dhabi as tailor (from 19-24 years old).


    Mum has always been a housewife, despite Dad's low wages, and I have a fair amount of contempt for her because of that.
