Unsensible shopping spree

I just did a full strip and rebuild of my bike and decided that, despite having no spare cash, I needed new brake pads and new jockey wheels for my rear mech...

So I went online and thought 'Ill just chuck this on the credit card, 30 quid at most'. But I got excited and now, on the way there is:

New Centaur red&black rear mech
4 brake pads
2 new water bottles
2 Schwalbe Ultremo ZX tyres
and a pair of Shutt VR Roubaix bib-knicks

Ooops. How do I explain this one?

    Very important, those bottles, for all the riding I'm not doing because of this BLOODY SNOW!

    Argh.

    Fill them with water, pop them in the fridge, and claim they're part of your cunning plan to ensure a ready supply of water for the family in the event of pipes freezing.

    "They had a special offer where if I buy these bottles I get a free rear mech!"

    My dad replaced nothing with a brand-new red, white and black Campagnolo jacket a while ago. Mother asked "Is that a new jacket?". Dad replied "No, I've had it for ages!", and that was the end of it! Hehe :D

    I have no idea what's going on here.

    You realise you have a problem when you start hiding unnecessary bike purchases at work so the Missus won't find them....

    Not that I do this :oops:
