All my kegs have gone pppffffffffttttt, my gas bottle has been leaking without my knowledge and in now empty after being filled only a month or so ago. My wife has glandular fever (mono) so I have zero time to brew and not even the time to bottle my 5 gallons of strong Belgian lazing in my basement.

You don't realise how much your other half does until you have to do it. I'll never take her for granted again!

I know what you mean Jolly. A few years ago my wife fell and broke and dislocated her elbow. Our kids were about seven months and 2 1/2 at the time. She could not even hold the baby for six weeks. It was brutal. Needless to say, there was no brewing going on.

My Daughter is 21 months old and is a handful by herself, I can't imagine what it must have been like with two!

I dunno, Paul. My wife's daughters are 17-year-old twins, and while generally well-behaved (they are "young" for their age) they would be absolutely worthless as brewery help. They couldn't imagine anything more mundane and boring; their interests are in fantasy literature. My wife is happy they are the complete opposite of "girls gone wild," but I worry they are so little grounded in this world.
