Once she starts on the DS,you'll not get a look in, and smacking the pony will become an all consuming hobby.

DON'T let her see it and take it back.

You have been warned!
I dont have to START exercising the wrist

to be honest i think i will play with it more than her...the DS that is

my mum just bought the Wii with the sport pack etc from Dixons, about 350 quid i think, they had 500 for sale on line earlier this week...there are loads of them over here on the shelves.....

Sorry andy, you've confessed all now - too late. How come you didn't choose 68 for part of your avatar?

Tell your wife that there is no need to worry, you are chatting to a strange woman on t'internet

You'll have to check the flight times. Nearest airport is Humberside.

I've just bought a load of black a3 photo 'poster calendars' from here:

http://www.photobox.co.uk/static/pro...-calendar.html

They are absolutely brilliant quality. We've used a load of photo's of the nippers and they are great presents for grandparents.

Im off from 21st Dec go back on 2nd Jan, coming to UK for Xmas this year, I initially booked our flights to come back on the 29th Dec but then realised i didnt have to work on the 31st so have changed the return for the 2nd Jan. If I had booked correctly the first time i would have saved myself about 200 quid :sad0147:

what a muppet....
