Family! Cleaning

Weekdays at 9.05am

The fascinating documentary series continues, focusing this week on the everyday life of a family in the Vale of Glamorgan. The episodes centre on Rachel and Hannah, four-year-old twins with contrasting personalities. They live with their mum Andrea, dad Pete, little sister Katie and kitten Dotty.

Rachel and Hannah are two little girls with strong personalities. Rachel likes the outdoors, while Hannah is more arty. Rachel wears her hair in bunches, Hannah prefers it loose. Both girls are tomboys and their bedroom is a bit of a mess! They love cooking and enjoy an active lifestyle, including walking, cycling and Tae Kwon Do.

The girls spend a lot of time with their three-yearold sister Katie. Together they share a comfortable terraced house in Cowbridge, a pretty market town in the Vale of Glamorgan. The local area boasts beautiful rolling countryside and a range of historic buildings, including a castle.

When they are not doing activities, entertaining friends and pestering Dad in his office, the twins play with their kitten Dotty. Livewire Dotty recently shed a couple of her nine lives when she lost her leg in an accident. Finding another kitten to keep Dotty company is a priority for the family.

In Monday’s show, ‘Cleaning’, it’s all hands on deck as Rachel, Hannah and Katie help Mum and Dad with the household cleaning.

It’s an exciting day on Tuesday in ‘Fish’, as Rachel and Hannah visit the local garden centre with mum to buy some new pet fish. What will they call them?

In ‘Bike Ride’ on Wednesday, the twins put on their helmets for a fun bike ride with Dad to the nearby castle. Will they manage to find him during a game of hide-and-seek?

The girls are ‘Making Pizza’ on Thursday. Rachel and Hannah put on their aprons and make homemade pizzas with Mum. But can they prevent Dad from stealing a slice?

Friday’s show is ‘Gardening with Grandad’. Rachel and Hannah help to plant seeds and water the vegetable patch on their grandad’s allotment. They dig up some potatoes to cook and eat for lunch.
