Aaaaaaahhh now I see. I never understood why you'd move for a job and then move really far away from it causing you to have long commutes. So, it's all your wife's fault ey. Well, there you go. She makes the money, you clean the house. That means you get presents. You can start choosing your Glo case now

Oh fun! I think I might go to Scotland again for my next holiday I'm starting to want to go there again!

Awww how sad. Funnily enough, my Glo was a gift from my boyfriend... and I gave him his Kindle Paperwhite I guess we win at the relationship game!

Oh that's right! It's relatively new for the older devices

Oh, no, we're completely emancipated over here. Mr_Often picks the tulips and puts them in vases, I make the clogs and we do grocery shopping together. And cooking is divided up evening during the week (allowing for one day of delivery food). Of course, cooking isn't much work as it's either cheese fondue or grilled cheese sticks. Sometimes we have grated cheese (with pasta underneath) though.

I think the problem only occurs in newer devices. So your Touch will be fine. I can't promise anything about your new Glo though.

So was I! That was very weird. Too much mouldy tulip smelling, perhaps.

"Fault" sometimes seems the operative word, but, as I said, I've got a bit of consultancy work so I'm not completely idle - especially since I *am* the house-keeper, so I have reasons to get out of bed!

There are some really nice places around - we aren't far from the coast, though it only the North Sea, so nothing dramatic. The mountains aren't far away, either. Hence the need for a four-wheeled toy for me - I want to get out more, and public transport is ... well, British

I have tried with the useful tech presents - all have fallen flat. Flowers, chocolates and a day out is good enough, it seems. I just get told to go and buy myself a present, since she wouldn't have a clue what to get!

I didn't mean to suggest otherwise. I did make the mistake of thinking that the chisels would be in his shed, though, and we all know that it is contrary to the laws of the universe for anyone other than a man to enter a shed ... if a Y-chromosome isn't present, then the shed simply won't open!

shame on you: it is one of the only seven cities in Scotland!!!
(yeah, I am becoming a Scottish nationalist, though admittedly Dundee isn't exactly like London as a hub of cultural life - yet the waterfront looks quite impressive to me)

I actually feel quite guilty about not really engaging with the place - it is like where I grew up in South Yorkshire, only with a really nice river! However, it is still trying to decide what it wants to be now that most of the industry has gone (though I was astounded to find out that Michelin is a big employer here, and there is still a large print employer here - gone are the days when big industry was obvious by noise and smells). I can see that it will be really nice here when that happens, and they have created a nice waterfront and have river tours etc, but at the moment it is a post-industrial mess (like my hometown, which has no direction but down, unfortunately).

Regarding Scottish Nationalism, being a Yorkshireman by birth I tend towards getting away from the dead hand of Westminster if the opportunity is there - let's face it, it can hardly be worse, can it?
