Anyone else looking forward to a new episode on Friday where I think they have just had number 17, plus one of the elder daughters is expecting too!

This is the UK one you're talking about?! Yes I am! For a minute I thought you were referring to the American Duggar family who had 16 years ago and are now kn 19/20 grin

Yes, the English one. God knows how much they spend on shoes!

Must admit I don't like the british programmes about big families... The americans just do it better than us smile lol

I am related to the family, so I get all the insider news, lol.

My favourite story as a child was " There was an old lady who livef in a shoe" We got to 4 and reached our limit!! She must be mega organised!! I take my hat off in admiration.

Here.

I'm fascinated by HUGE families. I stuck at 2, but it does feel like I'm a few kids short IYSWIM.

FIVE bathtimes per night?? <boggles> That would finish me off. The parents must have the patience of a saint.

the birthday presents don't have to cost 3k a year! that's £180 per birthday present per child! more than a lot of small families spend per child!

Meglet Fri 11-Jan-13 21:07:05

Just wondering how bad it gets when a D&V virus, nits or threadworms goes round those kids.

IRONING?!!! Is she insane?!!!

I'm wondering why the older kids don't have some chores and most of the kids can't out away their own clothes

Love this programme, hard working, down to earth & most importantly seem very loving.

It wouldn't be for me but good on them they look a real nice happy family. She's in great shape for having all them babies!!!

I am fascinated by how they can afford the house, the bills, etc.
I mean, how, unless you are earning over £200,000 per year???

I find the US show about the Duggars interesting as they have such a different lifestyle with extreme religious views, home schooling etc. The way they share responsibilities and work together is fascinating. This lot are just a bog standard family so rather dull to watch so far.

The kids not being able to get out of the bedroom doesn't sit right with me, what would happen re fire etc?

SavoirFaire Fri 11-Jan-13 21:12:59

I noticed that they made a point of saying that they had bought the house - i.e. not council. Would be interested to know what he does for a living. She clearly can't do much other than wash, iron, make packed lunches etc.

Blimey. The washing would kill me. I also almost never iron and only have two DC. My DH does his shirts and I iron 2 or 3 items every month!

In awe. All the kids seem lovely.

PenguinBear Fri 11-Jan-13 21:13:06

It's great fun watching though!! I don't feel I can moan at
Cleaning a 3 bed house when she has a 10 bed place to
Clean!

I saw them on This Morning. He has his own business. I wonder if they have been affected by the child benefit cuts as that would be quite a bit to lose.

They were on this morning. They have their own business the said. It's a bakery. DH thought it would have to be warburtons to afford all that!!
