Hmmm, investment shoes then. Still won't persuade him, I'd have to buy them on the quiet and not moan about having no money.....

Rhubob Wed 04-Jul-07 15:07:41

PetitFilou1 Wed 04-Jul-07 15:08:34

No that's without it, still £££ though isn't it

binkleandflip Wed 04-Jul-07 15:11:27

I'm by no means skint but I could not justify spending 100 odd quid on on pair of shoes..I'm in the "I could get 5 pairs for that!" school - inbred into me

PetitFilou1 Wed 04-Jul-07 15:14:54

Unfortunately I have the opposite, quality not quantity, bred into me, but don't really have the cash to match. Dh restrains my spending....
