My name Is Mandi Jane Morrison. I am aged 42 and a qualified Nursery Nurse, I have a BA(hons) degree in Childhood and Youth Studies.
I am a partner in AJ Morrison Enterprises, specialising in Leisure & Tourism consulting, PR and Social Media
I have been with my husband Asa for 22 years and we have been married for 17 years.
I do not have much time for hobbies as I am pretty much a full time mum to our seven wonderful children, (and our Newfoundland Puppy Merrie) which leaves very little spare time!
I do enjoy reading and hopefully now that the youngest is about to start school I can get back into gardening.
I love watching all types of films and listening to a wide variety of music.
In April 1998 we had our first daughter that we named Xene, meaning a Welcome Stranger, she is now taller than me and currently away at university ‘up north’ studying production design for stage and screen
In April 2003 we welcomed our next daughter Neva, meaning Snow as my husband adores the white stuff! She is the most laid back of the seven and is animal mad and a vegetarian, she has a keen interest in Science and Maths and would like to pursue a STEM career, she is currently studying for her gcse,s and has just taken on the role in the culture and community co-operative, responsible for the entire schools fundraising for 2018/19.
In November 2008 we had our final little girl, that we named Eowyn, meaning lover of horses, as I used to be a keen horse rider and I am hoping that someone may share my passion. Being the fifth child means she is most definitely the most outgoing of them all, she never sits still, and spends most of the day cartwheeling across my lounge, or jumping from high places!! She is the only Morrison child to have fractured a bone…
My husband is Asa, he is in his mid forties , he is an independent Leisure and Tourism Consultant and a partner in AJ Morrison Enterprises.
He is a keen rugby player and plays for Great Yarmouth-Broadland RFC, which he is also the Chairman.
He has lots of varied interests and LOVES the outdoors.
We met whilst working together behind the bar at the local Leisure Centre, it was Asa’s part-time job whilst finishing his degree in Leisure and Tourism, who knew that the meeting in summer 1996 would change his life forever!!
In April 2000 we had our first son, as my husband’s family has a strong Scottish connection, we decided to call him Lochlan meaning from the Land of Lochs, although most people call him Lochi. He is a computer whizz and I call on him often when I need help with the computer!! He is a typical teenage boy, loves all things gaming and gadgety, he is currently studying Games Development and Film & TV at Sixth Form, and is planning to continue his studies in Games Development.
To break the mould (and to save going completely broke each April) we had Kaide in September 2005, his name keeping with the Scottish theme meaning from the Wet Lands. Kaide is the Sportsman of the family, he has a natural talent for any sport that he has a go at, and has been kicking a football accurately into a goal since the age of three, he is also a maths genius, he is currently in his first year at high school
Our next little man Tyrus was born at home in June 2011, his name means Thunder, he is extremely chilled, but into everything, he is easily lead astray by Eowyn and the pair of them sneak off to cause chaos!! He is in Year two and was diagnosed with asd in June 2016, he is an amazing little man, and I wish I could see the world from his point of view!
Finally in September 2013 we had our fourth little boy, changing the girl, boy sequence. A lovely waterbirth, welcomed Viggo to our family, his name means lightning to go with his Big Bro. He was the heaviest of all the children, weighing in at a very impressive 9lb 6oz. He is at preschool four full days and starts school this September, he is constantly involved in mischief, usually created by Tyrus and Eowyn.
And That is the chaos that is ‘The Morrisons’ xxx
