The one thing you need is a partner who does everything ( she's to impatient ) and won't wait as it's got to be done today!. But i do find that the whole process has been quite stress free for me, don't no why but it has .

That's scary! We still have 3 months to go, are totally on top of the situation as fas as we can be at the moment and I am still panicing.

I think I am more like Karen than Darren in that respect by the sounds of it. Sam is at home watching tv, ironing or playing with Maryann while I am at work making yet more lists of new things to worry about
