Now what to spend it on?

Taking out a contract on whichever bastard managed to get a trojan past my firewall?

A new surf board and wet suit. A bycicle (probably a used one at that price). Come to think of it I'd go for the bike.

If you wanted to be romantic you could drop the kids off at your mum's and take the wife out on the town.

Looks like it's going to be a garden play-house, and a chunk of cash towards a new stereo.

A trip to B&Q obviously!

That's what everyone does over the Easter Weekend...

BTW my DIY job of the day was a successful installation of a retractable clothes line. Tomorrow we will test it!:beer:

My last DIY was paint the whole house, refinish the guest bathroom... new floor, lighting, hardware etc.... new kitchen floor, new stainless steel appliances... tear out hall and living room rug and replace with wood laminate flooring.

Now I am home for 3 weeks with a stress fracture in my right foot, which happened just before I had to go to NY for my dad's funeral a couple weeks ago. It got worse and now I,m laid up.

Think I'm going to a friends house in St. Pete Beach florida sunday night until the following saturday. With my oldest daughter.

Continental scheiss porn and a peek-a-boo bra for the missus.

Alternatively, some art.

I won a competition. The usual crap- "Make a useful suggestion that a senior manager can then pass off as their own idea."

As I'm good at soundbites, I tend to clean up on those competitions. They'll take a glib phrase over something that actually works 9 times out of 10.
