Feel shit reopening this thread reading Jim's story (hope it ended well) but Baby Farr is due in 7 weeks.

Biggest live changing event your ever gona have.. get ready to be in autopilot mode for the first 8-10 weeks.

I survive on 6 hours a night sleep - thought i was gona be fine. the first 8 weeks your gona be up every 3 hours - broken sleep is awful. even if you get 2 x 3 hours its not the same.

As someoene said before - get a night or 2 away before. Buy a Sterilizer.

#Top tip for making bottles. have a bottle with cool boiled water(i.e boil water - let it go cold and put it in a sealable bottle) - mix this with the boiling water - this so you dont have to stand witha  bottle under a tap to cool it or wait onit. babys are not patient lol!!

Dont hold back with changing etc - its go a be new to everyone.

Or invest in a perfect prep machine. Didn't have one for the first 2. Have an 11 week old at the minute, the machine's a great job!

Starting to get a bit more sleeping at night now thankfully

Did Cavanagh touch the ball on the ground in the square after Morgan saved a shot at goal in the first half? Replays didn't focus on it so it was difficult to see

Surely that is as clear as black card as there ever has been and still no card.

The pull down on McShane? Very strange decisions, looked a stone wall black

Yes that is the one. Even mcshane was wondering what was going on. Shambles of a ref performance to be honest. Gaa obsessed with changing rules etc to make the game better but have refs like mcgoldrick who cant even apply the current rules correctly to 2 teams in a single game.

Very inconsistent. Seemed like a lot of challenges around the neck. Nothing all day and then pulls a yellow out for one. The McShane one stood out though.

That long ball from Morgan, catch by Sludden and point by Burns (I think) in the first half was a great passage of play. Not sure Sludden should've been allowed to catch that ball.

Thanks everyone. M50 was grand, bit slow when we got off it bit not too bad. Just landed in now. Civil enough crowd so we should be ok getting in if we spilt up. Looking forward to it.

Any recommendations or where to go? Especially for the match tomorrow night

Cheers lads, expected as much.

Heading now and going to be at the M50 at 5pm. Coming from the north. Go with the M50 or try and avoid it?

Heading to Galway on a stag here this afternoon. What's the story with getting into the bars? There's 15 or so, better splitting up? Where's good?

Apology released by Belfast city marathon company. It was half a mile long!!

I did leg 4. Very hilly and I am not in great shape these days so got through it but good craic all the same.

Sounds like the route was measured ok, but the runners were twice misdirected off the course

Few friends ran it and said the new route was far better. Hearing the bag collection was a nightmare though, an hour to collect a bag. Maybe not prepared for the increase in numbers

Going to watch the first few eps of this tonight - been reading the comments here on it, don't see much mention of the Irish family, the Smiths, presumably they don't appear? Have they ever spoke in public afterwards on this ?

Have watched 5 episodes I think. They are mentioned a few times - the first where the father said he realised Gerry McCann was the person he saw carrying the child on the night of the abduction (which became clear to him when he say Gerry McCann carrying one of the younger kids off the plane on their return to the UK), and the next mentioned was where he had retracted his story.

Think it says there are multiple witnesses putting Gerry McCann at the Tapas bar at the same time as Martin Smith said he saw Gerry McCann carrying the child.

I'm recently into a new house and am planning a new lawn lads.

Top soil was brought in around mid November. I've weeded over the last 2 weekends, raked the soil to level it out, removed any big stones, etc...

I've fertiliser and seed bought and sitting here in the house and am half thinking about getting the seed sown this weekend. Am I a few weeks too early? Anyone any experience of this?

Apparently it's best to wait until late March at least. Even though it's very mild at the moment hard frost could kick in again any time before then.

Cheers lads, I'll leave it a few weeks

That will give you another chance to weed again prior to sowing.

Even the thought of it!! I've a path to get sorted so that'll keep me busy for a couple of weeks
