My lovely great big bed...grin

A motorised swing for baby DS. He has spent many an hour in that thing and it has saved my sanity.

A laptop - means I can MN all night grin

A coffee machine (which actually was a present) - I use it every day and really look forward to my latte which is made all the nicer for the fact that it costs me about 10p to make!

I agree with Valhalla, the £90 to rescue our dog. Best money I ever spent grin

new fences and trellis-work all around the garden, looks sooooo much better now. Boring way to spend A LOT of money IMO but everyday I look I am pleased

Just waiting for the neighbour blocking trees to grow now grin

Wonderful adjustable memory foam bed

The hot tub! We have one built into the bathroom which is boring, so we bought a large hard inflatable one for outside, has a pump and heater and is rather lovely in the summer.



Am considering a Tassimo machine now that the morning sickness has staved off long enough to warrant coffee.

Our swimming pond, huge money but money well soent.

The 79 cents I spent on a Tune-In Radio app for my I-Pod Touch, turning it into a digital radio at home. I use it sooo much, combined with a . We don't live in the UK so it means I can listen to Radio 4 around the house live - a huge improvement in my quality of life.

iPad too. Actually a gift from DH. Even the cats use the iPad around here.
Hippychick hip seat thing when DS2 was little.
A decent goosedown jacket.

MotherMountainGoat Thu 26-May-11 21:57:38

Oops, combined with an I-Pod docking station, that should have been.
