I just dislike 'shopping'. In my world, a shop is there for the simple purpose of buying something I've already decided I want, so I go in, pick up what I want, pay for it and leave. I simply cannot see the fun in wandering around lots of shops staring in the windows at ways of pissing money down the drain other than a good burgundy.

Luckily, Lady Tester has a similar attitude to shopping, with the worrying exception of shoe shops.

As to the weekend, Saturday I'll be preparing for a dinner party on Saturday night and watching the rugby.

Sunday, sleeping.

Oh we could be friends. :smile

I have a list of the 5 items I want and know which shops to target to get them. At most the actual shopping should take me 2 hours with most of it consisting of queuing up to pay for items.

Mine will probably evolve around wine, food, rugby (watching Ireland make a right hash yet again) and maybe some DIY I've been putting off for the last year and possibly some gardening if the weather holds out.

What's with all this gardening?

It's cold and rain is forecast so I'm doing none.

Plus I have bulbs in my lawn so can't do anything until the end of March.

or as a guy I know used to say 'date proof my house', if it was clean she would not come, if it was dirty she would come and dump him for living in such a mess.

Driving to Hampshire to visit the aged Ps on sunday.

Been trying to "manage expectations" for years, the desired expectation being that I inevitably forget Mother's Day and birthdays and all that kind of thing.

But now they ring up and remind me a week in advance of every day like that. ("Have you posted my birthday card yet?") So there's no getting out of it. :mad

Thanks. It is my favourite sort of exam. I have had several, and fortunately the proctors are usually less like this:

Aaargh, now I looked at Just-Eat and am tempted by curry. Must save curry for tomorrow... I know I'll have a glass of wine in the hope it puts me in the mood for cheese. Wine & cheese tonight, curry and beer tomorrow, don't want to mix wine & beer. It's tough to drink wine just to get hungry for cheese but I'll give it a shot.

I must admit I've only skimmed your other thread, I didn't know they'd been in your effing HOUSE!

Not nice. I hope they do catch them then, sounds a bit more serious than the sort of smash window, hotwire whatsit job I expected.

Have a drink, and here's hoping they've wrapped themselves round a lampost.
