    Nose and ear trimmer. Was starting to look like Chewbacca! Some body and face stuff from Kiehls, very nice, shame they don't do a chamois cream. And the one thing I really wanted, two pairs of DeFeet Wooleators. Instead I got the Aireators which are too big. Apart from that they are perfect! :roll:
  • FFWD disc wheel. No excuses for poor TT times in 2011 now. I also got a nose and ear trimmer, I must be a Wookie too!!!

  • From the girlfriend: Biscuits.

    It's not all bad, I didn't get her anything. Bah Humbug. No, seriously, I only bother with presents when they will be of use, otherwise, why waste money?

    I'll treat her to something when in Bath next...might also have to treat myself to some new sexy shorts.

    Oh FFS. I thought I was joking. A pair of socks, a book I have no intention of reading and a magnetic Mr. Messy bookmark. Well done MrsNapD. No wonder I buy everythIng for myself. She doesn't even make the effort to ask friends/family/me what I'd like/need. I know this sounds ungrateful but I'd rather just have a hand job!

    100 greatest road climbs, Fignon's book and a Pantani book. Lovely.

    Great panatoni as well :D

    Worst has to be the inlaws. Always the lazy root and no thought. Smelly sets and Molton Brown. Also the most hideous golf top although I don't play golf and never have!

    Gutted the hint for Oakley Radars went amiss with them :cry:
  • Kurt Kinetic Pro Trainer. Actually she bought it back in October when CRC had a sale on and it's been under the bed ever since. One of those 'you can't open it until Xmas day' arrangments

    At least now I can use it properly - instead waiting until she goes out, using it for an hour before disassembling the thing and putting back in it's box and under the bed.

    There's a pair of RS80s under there as well - for my birthday next week :D
