I ask for bike bits and shoes or clothing. 'No im not getting you that'.
And that was that, same again this year. I just ask for fun now really. Har har. Why bother eh.
Then stuck for ideas on what to get me.
Got a shaver though, that will do nicely.
Problem is that women like surprises, men want something off a list they have in their head. So each other find it very difficult to buy for each other as the bloke wants to buy his wife something she needs, and the wife wants to buy a surprise for her husband. If each other can understand WHY the other half wants what they want everyone is happy!!
I am nearly there...... Best thing ever was making stuff for my wife, it's cheap and always works (unfortunately building them a retro bike doesn't work!!).
