The Family Album • Everything But The Girl

Tracey and Ben were worn out. Mum had had them clean the entire kitchen after their ‘toad in the hole’ disaster. They were still in big trouble, though, as they’d forgotten something… they’d cleaned everything but the grill.

The Family Album • Juliette Greco

The Family Album • Dean Martin and Aïda

Try as he might, Dean could never tempt Max the dog away from Aïda’s side. He didn’t know about her secret saveloy stash.

The Family Album • Marc Bolan

Marc was the first person we ever met who drank cappuccinos. He set up a little shop in his front room and made them himself – this was before you could order them down the caff

The Family Album • Mario Lanza

Mario was a friend of Mum’s. He worked in the printers on the local industrial estate. He did night-shift. They wouldn’t have him on the day-shift because no one could hear Radio 1 over his incessant humming.

Family Album • Benny Goodman

Old Ben had neck trouble. He was a keen inventor, though, and devised a suction cap for wine, meaning he could swig from the bottle without having to tip his head back.

The Family Album • Mongo

Mongo always, but always, overdid the mayo when prepping a tuna/mayo sarnie. And woe betide you if you intimated as much. The man was mayo mad.

The Family Album • Frankie
