    Thats a good point, Gem might cheat....has she taken unit 32: Professional Ethics yet?? I don't remember anything on baby betting, but it should stand her in good stead :laugh:

    All bets are off if its induced......unless it happens to be on the 6th August, of course

    Centimetres (A-Vic), inches (Blobby) - is someone going to do weight in kilos and really confuse everyone?!:laugh:

    I predict Gem will lose 7lb 8oz of weight on 31st July at approximately 04:05:49. So there.

    Or state the result in grams and then have the temerity to expect people to know how many grams there are in a kilogram!

    I think Gem did the NVQ and therefore doesn't have Professional Ethics :001_tongue:

    :laugh:Oh don't; I will get on my soap box and insult a lot of people if I get involved in that sort of debate!

    RE Ethics - I would've liked a test of that under NVQ, maybe it's something the AAT should look at? Doesn't matter now: I've got tonnes of it at ACA!

    Been a long time since mine were born (birthday numbers 16, 14 and 12 within the next four weeks) but from what I remember, birth weight is given in imperial while length is metric!

    Well, from using the weight calculator given to the exam hall by the deservedly hanged lecturer a couple of years ago, I can tell you there are a thousand grams per ounce and two to four litres per stone. From working it out on my tiny phone calculator using hands wearing oven gloves, Adam's prediction of 7lb 8oz should be around two point three cubic tonnes in old imperial.

    Seen bigger...

    We're having Aiden for a boy but we haven't decided for a girl. Originally we were gonna have Willow but then I clicked that as soon as she goes to school everyone will pick on her and call her willy... so we're not sure!

    I think if that were the case being called 'willy' at school would be the least of her worries.

    And what's wrong with Christopher Beelzebub as a name anyway?
