    Congratulations, Martin and Lara. So pleased for you, and hope your Cape Town holiday was wonderful - I lived there for 8 1/2 years, and was there from 11 Nov to 2nd Dec. So I know it's a truly beautiful place, and very moneysaving with the Rand/ exchange rate.

    Wishing you both wonderful years ahead. It's great news.

    Awwww that's brilliant news! I'm just listening to you on Money Box Live too - fancy not taking a few days off to celebrate!

    Wishing you both many years of happiness, but please don't get so domesticated that you have to give up this place!
