My Little one runs on Solar power or something! thank God she is at school or I would not know what to do with her! I take my hat of for the missus though ...she handles her while I am at work.

I love sports when I am behind a Pint glass !! No honestly I Scuba and like a little rugby now and then. Signed in at the Aviation Club...lets see how that goes.

Yea - as far as I know there is still time to get your Dubai 7s tickets (at least, they are still being advertised), and that's an unmissable social as well as sporting event.

Thanks Dean. 7's it is then! Or if I am unlucky and dont get decent tickets then I have been told about a place called "The Irish Pub". Lets see.

She is 7 years old going on 22. If your looking for a play date for the kids I can let my wife know and can get it set up! I am sure my daughter would love it!
