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.

Ooooh please come over and do my study as well!
