    You'll love the vapours. I bought them as a Christmas present to myself and they're brilliant. Mother got me a smoothie maker I was after. But then she got me a head torch as well. Think that will be put in the cupboard for a while.

  • censored all ; worst christmas ever. Asked for some MTB shoes, but failed to be specific, and received Shimano "leisure" shoes. Led Zep DVD I'd asked for had magically transmuted into a CD, and that people, was that. i know Christmas isn't supposed to be about what you receive, but I have been left severely disgruntled by the lack of anything to play with. <sulk>

  • Pair of Altura overshoes and Timex ironman watch from the lovely Mrs CR. Needed the watch because, although my garmin edge does all sorts of wonderful things I don't think it will tell you the time.
    Tried out the overshoes today, plenty of water around for that,very good, though slightly embarrassed to say that after I set off I noticed that the Endura logo was on the inside so I had put them on the wrong feet, I don't think anyone noticed though. Not cool!
