    Oh dear. In that case I would definitely apply the Sam rule of thumb for 'spare' monies, which states that 50% = on sensible purchases* & the other 50% = on unjustified but cheering self up reasons.

    * considered some sort of outdoor toy in hopes of good summer?

    I would definitely go with unjustifiable purchases for a treat!

    One thing you could do is sell them on Ebay, sure you'll take a hit on their value, but you'll end up with cash instead....and then there are REAL possibilities!

    Well given even a bottle of Laphroaig only costs about £25, there's still more than enough left over for the lego

    Just don't try mixing the two, not only does lego taste terrible soaked in whiskey but the choking risk rises a great deal

    Buy food from Waitrose, and use the money you would have spent on food, somewhere else, on whatever you want.

    Re: Woo hah! Help me spend my bonus

    Just been round John Lewis this morning. Was looking at pearls to replace a pearl necklace I bought my wife years ago. She came over and dragged me away, pointing out that they were fake ones (doh!).

    Thomas the Tank Engine Duplo looked pretty cool for son, but he has about 12 miles of Tomy track already. Otherwise, a decent iPod speaker dock thing looked probably about the best bet.

    Didn't spend them today, therefore. Holding back. The food suggestion is looking like a good one.

    Edit: Or two and a half rolls of funky John Lewis wallpaper. HOW fvcking much??!??!?

    Wait for a while and get him this

    Sesame Street K'Nex

    I love K'Nex, great alternative to Lego

    *Ooops sorry, Not sure if you can get K'Nex in John Lewis.
