    Went into a Tesco today, my Wife went her way and I went mine. Picked up a dozen roses, and as I went to the checkout she crossed my path, spotted the roses, and said " I would rather have a bottle of Voddy " ; to which a couple of ladies within earshot started laughing.
    After all these years I should have known better. :doh:

    PS: As for me, I'm happy with the plasma cutter purchased yesterday, all is good. :D

    Which is really quite sad when you think about it, not the Mrs Bruce and Kim bit, but that most females don't find forums like this interesting.
    I think it's a huge loss, that by what ever means, we seem to exclude half the population.

    Presumably because they were in the laundry pile? In which case, fair exchange is no robbery. :whistle: And I know the plastic notes will survive a wash, unlike the old paper notes. ;)

    Fixed that for you. ;)

    I got a slight case of whiplash.....

    Had to buy a car this month so had nowt to get her a pressie with, she has been bugging me for months about learning to drive so I took her out for an hour tonight round the local B&Q carpark. Just a bit of clutch control but, every time I asked her to slow down and come to a stop she stamped on the brake pedal and brought us to a very abrupt stop. I managed to hold on to my temper throughout so I also earned a few brownie points as well.... :thumbup:

    Wife has friends round so I went to the local Chinese.

    On my own.

    Place was full of couples - I was the only single person at a table (cue ostentatious display of wedding ring in case people thought I was undateable/unmarryable).

    So to answer the question, what I got was... a single heart shaped chocolate with the bill. I assume that couples got two :(

    In other news, this was the card I bought and modified for the wife :)

    I went into Greggs for a corned beef nasty and when I got to the counter I said to the 30-something serving wench "Right, it's Valentine's day, so here I am!". She looked me up and down and called across to another girl who was stacking the drinks fridge: "Katy, your date's here!". Katy turned round, I'm not sure who was more stunned. Her at being fixed up with some old giffer who was easily old enough to be her, erm, big brother (:whistle:) or me: she was a bloody supermodel. Normally Greggs staff are like dinner-ladies but not this one :o
    I presume some beardy yoof with a BMW 1-series and tattoos will have sorted her out by now and be snoring. Me, I'd still be awake for the first go :D

    Which reminds me: spotted in M&S recently... :whistle:

    My dad always used to say you know you've been married too long when you wake up in the morning and the first thing she says is...

    "...and another thing...!"

    If we saw some picturesque young thing he would say "I can remember how... I just can't remember why."

    I bought a torch and some carbide bur kit off my snap on dealer and with it came a free valentines gift bag.

    it was a bag with a dog on it filled with a bottle of wine, chocolate, I little teddy and a card.

    She thought it was cute that I had put it altogether!!!

    Don't know who is the culprit here. She gave me the cold or I gave her the cold. We are both feeling miserable.
