Many congratulations LilyP - what a splendid name   Best wishes to all concerned 

Chicky - jolly well done - that sounds perfect for your father - my Pa had a view out over Sole Bay and loved watching the passing ships and the fishing boats and sailing boats from Southwold harbour   He claimed to have seen one of the whales as it passed up our coast a few years ago, but there was a definite twinkle in his eye when he told us

LillyP - my son was due on the 7th Dec, he arrived on the 22nd ... and I suspect that, if he'd been left to his own devices he'd have arrived on 25th Dec ... he's always had a slightly inflated opinion of his own importance 

I'm sure all will be fine ... I know they have somewhat different systems to us, but Russians do seem to know how to get things done ... ((hugs))

...  I'm not so sure that the virtual wife is such a bad thing.  At least you could switch it off when it wanted to go shopping .  I'm now off to find my tin hat and flak jacket.
