    She's a good girl and doesn't do things like that, I'll have you know. Unlike my friend's dog (also a bitch) that used to regularly mount and hump cushions.

    I would recommend the Jedi robes, I got bought some by my parents year before last, real quality robe and v warm, plus it looks pretty pimp

    Is dog. Humps everything by default. Doesn't matter if she doesn't, she does. Fact of life

    I've just sent my son his Christmas presents as he was due home for Christmas but his ship got diverted to the Philippines for obvious reasons. This year he is getting
    "How to swear around the world" book. useful I'm sure in his current situation
    Poo Trumps - same cards as Top Trumps but with obvious difference.
    Magnetic filings draw your own Beaver (don't think it means the rodent type!) :0
    And various other daft and throw away things. Just trying to keep him and his shipmates moral up even if it does cost me a fortune in jelly babies

    Nothing for myself.

    Instead, i'm spending around 1000 on Xbox One and Ps4 for lil bro, and a new gaming rig for him too, which will probably come to around 2000.

    In return, i'd love to get............ ...... ... *what don't i have*....... ...... a Ferrari lol
