    Unhappy Help!!!!

    Hi all,

    I have recently upgraded the family, (the wife has just had another rug rat) and i'm looking for some advice on boot space.

    Having two kids now and a very large dog the boot space has become very cramped, i.e. i can't bl**dy go anywhere with two adults, two sprogs, a dog a pram, the kitchen sink, a changing station, nappies, food for ten, emergecy rations kit, flask of tea etc (you get the point).

    I have considered (sadly) one of these roof box thingys to take the pram (or the kids, personally i don't mind either way) and all the stuff required for a family outing to morrisons (other supermarkets are available).

    Anyway, has anybody out there came across a suitable roof box thing for the veccie? How does it fit / work? Will it give me an easier life? Will it be big enough for me to sleep in? please someone take away the misery....

    The easy solution is to trade up, lose the over thirty lifestyle, buy a VX220 and flee the country with Queen blasting out the cd player. But alas, it ain't gonna happen. I'm stuck with sh*tty nappies, 3 o'clock feeds, baby puke, a 10 year old who thinks it's funny to paint the baby with mum's lippy and a boot that used to house really big speakers that seemed huge when i bought the car, but has suddenly shrunk and wouldn't fit my increasing credit card bill. How sad life has become, remember kids, sex isn't all it's cracked up to be.... take some advice. Watch the telly!! it's far safer.

    Yours in anticipation

    Stu

    Get a towbar and tow the pram, this way you can also fill it with the dog and nappies etc, but remember to put a plate and lights on the back of it, or you will get pulled over.
