That's a good idea Unscary...I think I will have a problem with the other two suddenly wanting lots of money/things too. I'm worried that if I cave in ( and I'd rather spend the money on myself
) then it's the beginning of a slippery slope...but I suppose it's slightly unfair not to have some things ? I don't really know as up to now he's always been naive to the workings of the wider world and was quite satisfied with another hamster.Oh, happy days.
Steve...I really hope I'm not going to have any hassling about ski trips.I've been putting DH off for years on that one and can't cope if DS starts on at me too.
PC...yes, maybe it is just initial showing off .How annoying.
WFG...do yours do the jobs for extra money ? The thing is the money is still coming from me and I think they should all muck in and help out. What is it with cars ? I drive a mini which he has told his friends that apparently I'm giving to him when he's 17.
At this rate I'm going to have to increase my hours at work, horror of horrors.
Sally-Anne.. yes, grandparent rates sound good.I shall suggest it to my mother in law. During the petrol strike about 10 years ago, I drove past a smartly dressed business woman completely upright , holding onto her mega scooter with one hand and her briefcase with the other. I think I might have splashed her with a puddle .
PPMum...my DD seems more hassling about clothes then electrical devices.She recently dropped her ds in the loo but doesn't want another.( but wants her ears pierced ).
