We usually do the same for our full time employees. Not as much this year though, 50 quid for staff and 100 quid for supervisors. Apart from the previously mentioned bottle of plonk we partners gave ourselves... fuck all!

Not complaining mind. We're still here after a tough few years and though we don't pay ourselves much we do have the odd BMW/Audi shaped perk.

I get paid tomorrow and I fully expect fuck all apart from the normal wage. We got SFA last year and I think that set the precedence after several years of decent bonuses.

Not to worry Mega. Get some stain devil in the wash with that shirt and it should come out good as new.

It gives you the option of choosing.

There is various cars from the 370z, GTR, DB9, 360, Exige, single seater experience or rallying.

Will need to double it up with a weekend away.
