MEMBERS of a family keep giving each other praise for basically just existing.
The Bishop family of Nuneaton spend an inordinate amount of time on Facebook telling each other they are incredible people.
Neighbour Julian Cook said: “Whenever I go on Facebook the Bishops are bigging each other up over some ordinary activity like buying a lawnmower or going swimming.
“I’m all for not taking loved ones for granted, but when you’re continually writing stuff like ‘My gorgeous wife has just made amazing sandwiches – again!!!’ it’s just a bit strange.
“If it’s not ‘So blessed to have such amazing, beautiful children!’ it’s things like ‘Congratulations to son Dave for C+ in art coursework. Teachers must have been impressed!’
“Yesterday Martin posted that it was ‘great to have such wonderful people around me on this special occasion’. They’d only gone to the pictures.”
Martin Bishop said: “As a family we like to acknowledge our achievements large and small, as my son did today when he posted the message, ‘Great-looking new lawnmower, Dad!’.
“We definitely don’t live in mortal terror of our crushing ordinariness.”
