“If you tell people that our triplet Nerys is autistic, there’s an awful embarrassed silence, so I say I’m a twin. There were five of us children. My mother felt we should be able to take life’s knocks, and she pushed us. She spent her time rushing between kids and work, so her life looked difficult, whereas my father’s life looked rather glamorous. He campaigned to rehabilitate prisoners, but what was so attractive was he escaped from the house each day. Catrin and I both thought we’d rather have his job.”
