To be in awe of Mrs Buck-Macfarlane

Been watching Happy Families and I am in total awe of that woman.

I know lots of you are probably in the same position as well but every time I see her and her family on the programme I think what a strong woman who does what she needs to do for her family. 5 jobs, running around after kids, doing housework etc. (obviously with a lot of support from her husband)

I also feel a real tinge of sadness that they're struggling to get by, for some reason it's really affected me.

If you're on here Mrs BM, I salute you. I have one DC and am shock at how you manage.

does she not have her own name?

Gordy, can't remember it! Just remember the bit when they show each family's house and their surname is quite memorable.

She's called Mel. I felt sad for her too, it's not fair, working so hard and struggling so much sad

Oh wow, hello Mel! grin Can't believe I've only just seen this.

You are such an inspiration and a massive credit to your children and Kris.

That's great news about the job too!
