    Let's enclose the porch and incorporate the garage into the house, bearing in mind it's nearly 3 feet lower than the house, but still attached...

    Aaah.....
    Abigail Mary arrived at 18:56 last night weighing in at 8lb 6 1/2 ounces, confirming beyond all doubt that the garage will be a study/guest room, while everything else shuffles around to accomodate our new THX certified high frequency audio transponder.

    Anyone ever got a feed back destroyer to work with one of these? :D

    I wrote the cheque to Roland for my projector 3 days before we knew we had an ankle biter on order.

    Children are more fun than home cinemas. It's just that home cinemas let you get more sleep.

    regards,
    Rob.

    Thanks guys,
    I think the biggest wrench for my wife was handing over the keys for her beloved Renault Megane Cabriolet (2+2 seater) in exchange for a Scenic, now we are a five person family.

    I'm sure Abigail wants to see Finding Nemo on an 8ft screen! Or The Jungle Book. She really does! PJs help babies sleep. Honest. The soothing sound of Arnie's truck chase in T2 I'm sure would work where rocking fails. Just think, with a PJ in a few years all the other kids would be round to watch stuff, a house full of kids (am I putting you off now).
    Happy days as Tuffers would say. Congratulations.

    Our 14 year old is always having mates round for sleepovers, and we get kicked out of the cinema room quite quickly - good job us oldies have somewhere else to hide.....
