I'm about to go into the same realm as you John!! I've got a load of stuff on Ebay and I'm planning on going for a new DS... my other half has other ideas!! Even though it's my 'toys' that I'm selling, she's got house stuff on the cards!
House stuff or Benson Deep Space? no contest, even if she goes into a shi**y mood and I'm on the couch for the next few weeks, I'm going for the DS
No , No you have it all wrong. You buy the DS then when it arrives all you need to say is " Oh no dearest, I haven't bought
it, I've just borrowed it from the FA Library!"
..Works for me! Keep it out of sight for a few weeks and with a bit of luck she'll have forgotten about it!! Having all your kites the same colour works too " New kite? no it's that blue one I've had for ages"
Also see if you can get it delivered to your work ( I used to work in an office and this worked a couple of times) or get it delivered to a mate's house. Keep you 'kite fund' on your paypal account so she won't notice it coming out of the bank. You have to be crafty when you're a kite addict!!
