120kg man from nice functional family
65kg resilient and loving woman
11kg baby boy with easy going temperament
15yo cat that miraculously adapts to young children
3mth plan to return to God's Own Country

Take the man and the woman and ensure that on the little time they are together that they are communicating really openly. Add the baby boy to the mixture, ensuring that he sleeps through the night and gobbles up his food, but be aware of eczema which can arise from time to time from this combination. Check that cat is well and has the appropriate vacinations to return to GOC. Then tackle removal plan little by little till all comes together in a smooth and pliable form. Pop the household goods on a ship for 8 weeks and the family (incl cat) on a plane for 24 hours (if you have chosen to fly direct) and within 2 to 3 months all should be happy families.

Chef's Tip: Make sure you ask for plenty of help to unpack household items at the other end.

Recipe for a happy family

Ingredients:
1 All-purpose husband and father
1 Mindreading wife and mother
Children to taste
Love
Patience

Leave the wife and the husband alone to react with the love and patience for up to five years. Then begin adding children. You may add as many children as you like of any gender or size, but to the parents, they must all weigh the same. However, each child must be made to believe that they weight more than the others.

As each child is added, more love and patience must be added too.

You must NEVER add lovers as they cause the mixture to separate and turn bitter.

Recipe for a happy family

Take two well-matured adults
Marinate in wine (optional)
Add a pinch of bottom and leave to laugh and cuddle together in a warm place until well-risen
Eggs may improve the mixture – but not all happy families require eggs
(For a fat-free version it is definitely preferable to leave out the eggs)
Ripe, organic mammaries
Shared happy memories
Truckloads of trust
Lashings of love and laughter
