FOR most mums, Mother’s Day is a chance to take some time for yourself and have a well-earned break from day-to-day household chores.
But when you’ve got 22 children like Sue Radford, there’s always things that need to be done around the house – 365 days of the year.
Speaking to Good Play Guide in 2015, proud dad Noel opened up about what Mother’s Day is like in Britain’s biggest family.
Explaining how the younger children get “very excited” in the run-up to the special day, the dad said they’ll spend the Saturday before making homemade cards.
He added: “Then on Sunday morning it’ll be breakfast in bed for her – made by the kids. There’ll be presents – chocolates and flowers.”
And it seems as though this is a yearly tradition for the Radfords – as Noel filmed Sue tearing up over her homemade cards and chocolates on Mother’s Day in 2019 too.
What’s more, Noel also says the kids are eager to help their mum out with household tasks during the day.
And despite her team of helpers, Noel says Sue isn’t the sort to sit and put her feet up.
He continued: “Sue won’t really rest up during the day. She’ll still do her laundry.
“If she misses a couple of washes it takes her a couple of days to get on top of it. She never has a day off!”
In their new Channel 5 show 22 Kids and Counting, Sue revealed how she spends hours every day tidying the family’s 10-bed former care home in Morecambe, Lancashire.
She said: “If I could say the one thing that really does drive me insane in this house, it’s got to be the laundry.”
“An average day, I can be doing four to five loads of washing. It’s never-ending.”
However, the couple did invest in an 18-kilo industrial-sized washing machine for their basement and Noel treated his wife to a robotic hoover in the first episode of their documentary series.
Last April, Noel and Sue welcomed their 22nd child Heidie who is just five months older than their granddaughter Ophelia.
