I think I'd just like some rings full stop. DH doesn't do jewellery (never has) but for some reason after 20 years I feel the need for 'something' wry lol  
Yup - we have 6 of us in 940 sq foot (and that includes the garage). And here in the United Kingdom its considered a good sized 3 bed house as well :-)
subbing... will post once thoughts are flowing :-)
Were you in the UK for 12 weeks or more? Did you receive reatment on the NHS?\ Either of these can be seen as establishing your usual place of residence, in which case you can ask the Embassy to return you and your child 'home' as the UK could be considered your normal domicile. Lots of info on adviceguide.org.uk - you can also call and talk to them long distance and they will be able to advise you or put you in touch with any specialist legal help you may...

The series by PC and Kristin Cast are quite good as well - aimed at teens, but content, um, not really in the latter books....

They'll review the diary and advise you if they can help, if there are grounds for a complaint then your neighbours *and* the owner of that property will get a letter of complaint from the...
H&M and Zara here. DD2 and DS1 are both pretty tough on clothes and the H&M things stand up really well. Although we do buy in a very 'made in europe' centric way so that may well have a bearing on this. M&S are OK as well - but the pretties from there definately don't stand up to heavy wear, but we tend to buy jumpers from the 'school' range as they seem to be indestructable.
The 'tie' type nappies are great as well - you get one or two layers once they open out, but the ties mean that you end up with a shaped nappy wrt things like poo containment :-) For newborns they are fine all on their own, for older babies you layer up with muslins or whatever as boosters (inside or outside the tie-on depending on fit requirements). I'm not sure what they are called in the USA - here in Europe they sell under the Disana (for knitted organic cotton)...
Noooooooooo Leaflets on mine (bought in France about, um, 15 years ago though) say not to put in the dishwasher at all..... Whether enamelled or not, I wouldn't personally put cast iron in the D/W anyway.
