Got an OMS ali backplate, harness and D rings off ebay for £51 this morning - seems about right for the money. Then went with Andy2Tanx to Divers Warehouse so HE could get a new dry suit. An hour later and I ended up with a brand spanking new neoprene drysuit for £200. Ah well, kiddie will have to go hungry this month.

what an absolute bargain well done! You could have spent so much more than that - easily.
Feel better?

Cheering you up has cheered me up, so today hasnt been a total waste of time, I was beginning to think it was, just a matter of applying female logic I think.

<font color='#000080'>Female logic....  No sorry never seen any evidence.  


Actually Jay the female approach would be to work out how much you had saved and then spent the savings on something else.  (Obviously visiting 30 dive stores in the process).  


Right I'm running now, just to get a head start.....

<font color='#0000FF'>Jay, I see you've got the same idea as me, setting a target of 100 dives per year - UK only I assume, diving abroad is too easy to count ;)
Mind I've always fallen short of my target every year I've said this, but this year though....

I'm going to count both Steve - its difficult to manage diving time and family time so I reckoned that 100 dives would be good to aim for. Not doing bad so far bearing in mind its still the winter season.

DARREN!!!

You can NEVER run fast enough!

I'm shocked and horrified - female logic indeed.

I hate shopping, food or clothes.

My filosofee (cant be bothered to spell it) is:

Do I like it?
Is it in my size?
Buy two (when your'e only 5'1", and it IS in your size, you always get two of them)

I like my kind of female logic.  I'd much prefer to spend an hour or two in Divers Warehouse (my very local dive shop), thankyou very much.

OK Carol my sincere apologies,  I realise not all of the fairer sex deserve to be stereotyped.

Now just to really set my mind at rest..  If I can be so forward as to ask a personal question....

Have you ever (Hand on heart) based your choice of kit purchase on ensuring you are colour coordinated...  


No ?  So just my wife then

I think I know more men who colour co-ordinate, actually...

They *HAVE* to have it in black!

Guilty as charged  


Although my drybag does have lots of blue in it.  Oh bugger so do my fins...  It was a coincidence. Honest

Now you know why I wear Tartan undies, goes with everything. Actually I have to admit I do try and get my kit to match, BUT only because I know its mine and not Adams - honest.

Hmm....

So given that I have a blue drysuit, white cylinders, a red wing, and am working on a purple backplate pocket, should I be worried?

<font color='#000F22'>MIB yep thats me

My fins are blue

But thats coz they had sold out of black ones at the dive show  


I have to admit to considering changing all my bolt snaps to SS as my new SS ones clash with the old skanky P/bronz ones which dont look half as good.
