    Arrived home yesterday to find a parcel with a set of tyres in ransacked by my wife and thought it was strange for her to take such an interest in my cycling purchases.

    Her response to my usual cheery greeting was "Why didn't you order those tyres from Wiggle, this lot don't send sweets. I spent ages trying to find them before I saw they were from someone else." She was consoled when I told her there would a parcel from Wiggle today

    I see a pattern emerging...I'm gonna go one better. I'll remind them not to forget my keyring...they might send me a Focus Variado if they've run out of keyrings.

    She will be disappointed again then I'm afraid.

    She could always suck on the keyring.

    Got a seatpost recently, Ms. P asked how much it was, picked it up-commented on how light it was and guessed at £30. Then she dug out the invoice. I gave her the sweets and never heard any more about it.

    think i'm at the point now, despite not living with my girlfriend (things may happen in the future) where a bike order will be ok provided there are some parts for her bike

    apparently i have to go ride round cannock chase again next week despite falling off last time!

    oh well, not complaining.
