    I'm at work today and feeling a bit **** with a cold.

    Then I got this email from the missus:

    "Aw.. I’ve just found a really cool website which might make you feel better www.northpole.com hehe, you can even track where abouts Santa is on Christmas eve to see how long he will be! xx"

    What have I let myself in for? She must be mental! And bored.

    Although there is a cool Rubik's Cube Java app on there so I guess it's not all bad....

    Give your missus a high five! That site is awesome (and I don't use that word lightly).

    I love the subliminal guilt trip adverts too..."adopt a child this christmas...don't pretend you can't afford it" :undwech:

    And I love Rubik's cube, they're so addictive

    I saw that too and thought the exact same thing.

    If I did every one of these sponsor a something or other adverts I see on Telly, I would have more going out than I would coming in every month.

    What they don't understand is that I have adopted a child. It's big, yellow, has 4 wheels and a thirst for high octane fuel.

    Inconsiderate bastards, totally insensitive to MY plight!

    haha, brilliant! And yes, they are inconsiderate, trying to empty our wallets, when my wife, daughter, car and house all do that so easily.

    I'm in the same boat. Hello money on pay day, bye bye money the next day. Children cost a fortune on their own.

    £30 I paid for a pair of shoes at Clark's the other day. I could of make some out of cork and silicone for £3.... Maybe less. :)

    I may start a 'Help Welly' appeal and try and guilt some money out of people.... Not altogether sure it'll work, but what the hell!

    I know, I almost fell to the floor when my wife told me how much the little one's shoes were. Clarks are raping us parents, and I don't like it one bit!

    I think i'm gonna follow your lead, and make my own childrens footwear. It may not be fashionable, and have those fancy lights in the heels, but it'll be damn cheap.

    I reckon that could be done.... steal some LED washer jets off of the local chav, 9V square battery.

    Two plus points there - no more LED washer jets on the chav's car, and light up hels for the kids....

    Win win....

    Win Win's are always the best! Currently Clarks have the Win Win, and we need to take control of the game.

    Anyway, are you gonna be watching santa's sack on the website over christmas eve?

    That'd be good..... I need to be sponsored to a) fix and b) run the damn thing!

    Still, it's not all bad, I could only be spending that money on boring things. Such as foreign holidays, 56" LCD TVs, hookers, the list goes on....
