And tell me about your mum

My mum was a very simple lady you know very happy and go with the flow you know if somebody said anything she'd say 'Oh forget it, doesn't matter, leave it at that carry on, don't stop there,' she was a very easy going person and the opposition, my dad was very strong person and mum was very easy going and I think it was quite a balance in the house and Dad would do anything what we would say you know like she used to say 'Oh you've got your dad round your fingers' you know and I think all my grandparents they lived in Pakistan so he was the only one in Africa.
