You don’t have to be in the middle to feel like the middle child.

“When I was about 9 or 10, my mum and dad took me and my sister on holiday to Wales. My dad is the biggest wind up merchant and never happy until he can make a kid cry. On this occasion, he had convinced me that the lake was full of man eating piranha fish and 6 ft deep. This was taken by mum, you can’t see my sister laughing behind her, but my whining and protesting at the prospect of being fish food made for a good photo that’s haunted me for years. Dad has just confessed after 30 yrs that he felt bad for making me cry!”
