    LOL no ur parents are artists right ? So tho it kinda makes sense ur very good at english. Ur amazing maths skills are pretty much a mystery
    My dad did do maths O level early and I think advanced O level also..dunno how hard that was. My grandmother did a number crunching job, can't remember exactly what; I guess sums =/= maths but still...
    I would definitely hesitate to describe my maths skills in such a way but thank-you..

    my dad runs his own consultancy business from which he makes around £80k per year. He also does work for the IoD and CIPD I think? And he has some income from a book he wrote a few years ago, income varies but generally a further ~ £500 per month.

    people didnt want to pay up. i used to do cash in hand work for a solicitor who worked from home and she specialised in elderly clients and she had that much trouble getting her clients to pay up, she had to liquify her company
