Have finalised SWMBO birthday pressie:

Return flights in Premium Economy to New York
3 nights at The Barclay Intercontinental
Dinner at Gordon Ramsay @ The London NY
3 days shopping and sightseeing in The Big Apple

:D surely that equates to a RB and 52 weekends diving next year :D

No.

Firstly. gifts etc are only valid until your next cock up
Secondly, if you spend a lot on something fot them. The she will drip about how little money you have for your RB.

It's a hard life old boy :(

Just tell her "Im having a RB and thats the end of it"

This strategy has landed me in frying pan to the side of the head territory before so agent provocateure so to speak.

Ahh...I'm safe there...all our frying pans are Le Crueset....she can barely lift them let alone throw them.


I do however think you're all missing the point.......I'm not buying the RB....I'd expect SWMBO to do that :D

Crikey thats some ambitious strategy i somehow dont think your quite there yet
If i want a biggie like this i have to plan ahead and stash some brass away so the hit on the account (the evidence) is reduced.
our pans are also cruset and she told me that she couldnt lift them

Well, if it was me, I'd buy it on the credit card, tell her I'd bought it and just take the hit, either in the knackers or the head. Last time I bought a mega amount of kit she just went silent......very worrying, cost me a kitchen (and many years of "let's not talk about hom much you spend on diving shall we", just as she wants to buy something a bit expensive)

Matt
(she's worth it though)

I'm afraid you have blown it with the "Premium Economy" bit. That says "you aren't worth First Class, dear, but i don't want you to think I am a cheapskate or else I won't get any" :D
