Don't even go there.
My house was spotless when I was single, bordering being clinical.
Along comes Emma and the rodents..........
I bought her this beautiful gift last xmas, shes not turned a page on it.!!!
Just seen this Wow you have a good un, most would have used that "present" to beat you to a bloody pulp, I shudder to think what next years present will be--------maybe pink handcuffs to attach to the kitchen sink
Yup, she gets my sense of humour and knows I'm a wind up merchant.
To be fair I always spoil her at Xmas, but I ALWAYS buy her a joke pressie.
Our first Xmas together I'm sat at her aunts amongst around 15 family members that I've only known around 4 months.
I bought one of those reporters notepads with the spiral at the top and the pages are perforated at the top so you can rip the pages out.
It cost about 37p or something ridiculous, I cut it into a capital I using the band saw, put it in a huge box, with fancy paper and bows.... Smuggled it into her aunts house prior to us arriving.
So we're all sat there and she opens her star pressie in front of all these people.
With a very puzzled look on her face she turns to me and says, what the frick is this?. I said well you asked for a new iPad but I couldn't get the model you wanted.
Instant acceptance by my inherited family.
I proposed once with a BZP M10 full nut glued to a 22mm copper olive........ That went down like a lead sh** lol
