@ Gute Seele, that's brilliant ! I'll have to bear that in mind (although I'm getting a bit old for having babies :wink
@ Vronie: I do like living in the UK. It's so different from Germany. People are much more polite, less rude, less stressed (at least where we are). What I don't like is this "my home is my castle" mentality: they have to put up 6 foot high fences around their back gardens so when we're sitting on our patio, all we see are these high fences. No chance of a friendly chat with the neighbours whilst working in the garden.
