Wow.... It seems that I am making a habit of being wrong.... At about 7.30 last night Emma posed the question "What is it going to be tonight?" referring to our luck with music, fireworks, noisy neighbours or other things that can keep us from a decent night sleep.... I responded with "Nothing, I think we will sleep like babies!" It wasn't until about 10.30 when we went to bed that I was proven wrong!
