    Ł250 - dilemma

    OK, I got a random "well done" from work so now have Ł250 to spend on stuff; I just claim it back via expenses.

    So now I've got a dilemma - what do I spend it on. Do I buy something I would have bought anyway, so it's not really any different? Do I spend it on something I would never normally buy as I would normally think it's a bit of a waste of money?

    Too many things to buy, can't make up my mind. I've already been through I want one of those and firebox and can't make my mind up there. Any suggestions?

    Mike

    Why not put it towards a short break instead? That kind of cash would easily cover a couple of cheap flights with Ryanair or Easyjet somewhere in Europe, and you'd probably get a hotel out of it as well.

    I think he needs to spend it, as opposed to banking it for a rainy day.

    ?? Don't understand.

    But don't worry about trying to explain anything to me, because I am actually thick about gaming.

    I'm still fighting through a stack of stuff for my old Xbox. Half-Life 2 at the moment; just got to Ravenholm where it's all full of zombies with chickens on their heads.





    Sorry about that, a bit off-topic
