You have just returned from a luxurious but hectic vacation in Florida.
And now that they’ve recovered from their jet lag, the Radfords are doing their best to settle back into everyday life — even managing a Home Bargains trip to buy a few odds and ends for their garden.
“We bought some home bargains today for our future plans,” Sue and Noel Radford wrote of a picture of their haul on their Instagram Stories.
In the picture was a set of wooden cutting boards, plastic plates and cutlery, a bronze pitcher and some tea towels.
In the next video they showed how they added some metal ornaments to their garden including a ladybug hanging solar light that costs just £3.99.
They were clearly keen to bring some light into their outdoor space and also snagged two butterfly versions of the solar lights.
While in Home Bargains, the Radfords also picked up a metal bumblebee and ladybug, which they attached to the wooden trellis in their yard.
Sue, 47, and Noel, 51, are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 28, Chloe, 26, Jack, 25, Daniel, 23, Luke, 21, Millie, 20, Katie, 19, James, 18, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 14, Max, 13, Tillie, 11, Oscar, 10, Casper, nine, Hallie, six, Phoebe, five, Archie, four, Bonnie, three, and Heidie, two.
They have done their utmost to make the garden of their Morecambe mansion a welcoming place for adults and children alike, installing an outdoor hot tub and bar during lockdown.
Now, however, the couple wants to build their own house and are in the process of finding the perfect plot.
“We’re only going to build this one house at a time, so it has to be true, we want a place that has enough land for us,” Noel previously said.
“We want about an acre so we can build a big house for all of us, but we also want there to be plenty of space for the kids to get out and play.”
The couple are looking for a plot of land within half an hour of their current home, a former care home in Morecambe, and want a plot that has already been granted planning permission so they can start building straight away.
“It’s so hard to find available land in the right place where you want it,” Sue added.
“We want the kids to have their own space, it basically has to be bigger, we’ve outgrown this house.”
