This coup actually worked out quite badly for me. My software workstation was in number 2 bedroom (which at the time, in our 3 bedroom house was the only "free" room). Number 1 child was in the number 3 bedroom.
Now, the British government is in the process of giving a certain bank MILLIONS of punds of my (tax) money. Why? Because this particular bank was very badly managed and has no money of its own left. Now, the idea is that the government gives them my money so that they can lend it back to me at a profit. To me this seems strangely ... urm ... "unfair" let's say.
Now, I step down off my soapbox briefly.
So I asked the nice man at the bank to lend me an exorbitant amount of money to add a garage and two bedrooms to my house, which he is perfectly happy to do. Because, let's not forget that the government gave him the money (MY MONEY) in the first place to lend back to me.
In the middle of all this, Child A (AKA child number 2, but since both children are equally valuable, I call him Child 'A') came along. The result was that child number 1 and child A got two nice new, MASSIVE rooms, I got expelled from number 2 bedroom (which was to become the 'guest bedroom') and I am currently resident in the now disused "baby room" (AKA number 3 bedroom).
The ironic part is that the former number 2 bedroom is NOT a guest bedroom at all, rather, it's become the store for my wife's eBay shop!
On the upside, I get the use of 1/3 of the garage.
Take my advice: coups are expensive and there's only a 1 in 100 change you'll be the victor.
