    Ive spilt the beans to the wife....

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Well, its been 5 days since I purchased my Lelit and my wife was doing house work yesterday...........you guessed it, she most likely saw the manual and yes, we staple the receipt to it in the back for warranty purposes.

    Anyway, I come home from work yesterday and noticed the manual had been put away..........(in the usual filing cabinet).....

    Then the interigation begins..........how much would the good beans cost.....how much was the tamper, rubber mat, etc etc etc.......

    Anyway, she didnt freak when I told her.........its now my Valentines pressy and also my birthday present (not for another 4 months)....

    She did mention the coffee is great and this morning asked me to make her fresh coffee into the travel mug whilst she takes the kids to their sports this morning.......

    OFF THE HOOK !!! * ;D

    Damn AngerManagment !! *

    Are you psychic.........scary !!!

    Coming up to our 20th anniversary this year, I think she knows that I will give in and by her something nice........she already hinted at extending her Pandora collection.......apparently they now have bought out a ring range........on top of her bracelet, necklace and earings !!!

    Ummm, probably around $300 bucks I guess, so I am still in front *!!!

    :D *;)


    Yes dear, coming !!!
