I am not going to put my name in the hat (as I don't have a lot of space right now and actually probably need to downsize), but I am going to make a donation to the charity you mentioned. Really sorry to hear about your circumstances mate, hope they manage to wipe it out eventually. And as many others have said, thanks for your kind gesture to the community.

I'll take 7lbs on the nose as my sons birth weight (7lbs 3 oz) was taken.

I was trying to tie in the no.7 with some retro goodness but couldn't think of anything!

Very kind thankyou! There will be two prizes this draw so second closest will get a prize too. If the first and second prize winners want to swap before I send they are more than welcome. On the event of of 2 or more closest guesses being the same distance away I will draw lots. :)

Keep them coming. A second comp will be the Sunday after. This is a fantastic forum community with great people. Will be in Manchester Play Expo this year and looking forward to seeing old (and new) friends. Can't believe it's nearly 9 years since I joined when I was only 33!

Btw. I am going to get my mum on the video to verify the integrity of my birth weight. Mum doesn't know yet but she's coming down this weekend!
