Great to hear you enjoyed your family baby shower. Can't beat a family gathering. As I have 2 late teens Grandsons, might have to wait awhile for baby showers I hope lol.

At the moment we are keeping the air cons running 24/7 but I don't regret anything. I miss the 'local' at times, and the 'crack' but my lads make up for that.
