Centre at eye level if you're on the step below the front door.

I'm in the capital. The nearest terminal is Paddington, about 1/2 mile away.

Twining's liquorice tea is nice. Don't really drink ordinary teas much.

My bedroom, a water tank, a weird little landing where I keep about half of my RPG collection, and some roof space under the eaves currently full of old baby stuff belonging to various nieces and other family crap.

No idea. I think I have it on a Project Gutenberg CD somewhere.
