hi y'all!

Sometimes i just feel like a very lucky man!

I have just come back from Florence. (TART) :D whilst i was there i treated myself too a nice watch. It was one of those great moments that only come round from time to time.
I have been looking for a watch for ages, but until last week nothing did it for me. That is until last week, in a shop window saying "i'm the one Al"buy me!!
So i did. I'm happy!

Anyone else been looking for ages for the perfect thing, then BAM!

Its a great feeling. I'll shut up now!

Cheers,Al :D

But it is useless, it will only show the time it is in Italy.

That was the case with my watch so I persuaded my girlfriend (who was just becoming my fiancee and is now my wife) to buy one for me.

She got some old rocks in a ring, I got this....

I wonder who got the best deal out of that?? 8)
