Cynic, I've just been and bought a Shoe GT AIR lid, cost me £480, told her indoors £280, bit of an umm and an ahh but no real problem, waited for the dozen roses that I ordered from Interflora yesterday for her birthday tomorrow, to be delivered, she loved them, gave her ten minutes then told her the true cost of my lid, Again bit of an umm and an ahh, but not too bad. The big guns were gonna come out tomorrow when she susses shes got £120 quids worth of perfume, for her birthday.
As for the £1400 for my wish list, Slice knows the crack, you have obviously never been an angler, for example when you come back with a pole that costs £1500 quid, she asks how much is that? and you tell her it only cost £800.
Of course the stuff for the Busa will be around £10000, but she's none the wiser bit by bit. Plus she scraped the Lexus on the driveway post the other day, there's a couple of hundred I need to sort out to repair, all week she's felt really bad about that, and that helps too for when you need something costing a few bob.
