    Thanks for the input everyone - I will let her know the forum has spoken.

    I've got another which watch should I buy question; this is probably going to seem quite extravagant but it's not my money so I'll just say it how it is & hope someone can help (please):

    It's my girlfriends 30th Birthday next month & her dad has generously offered to buy her a nice watch (in the "something to keep for the rest of your life & remember you got it for your 30th" kind of thinking). She has asked me which ones I think she should try as she's never really looked into high-ish end watches that much & whilst I could reel of a whole list of watches I would like, the women's watch world seems a bit limited. If I lay out the broad guide-lines could someone point me in the right direction please?

    The budget will be between £2-3k; as her dad is buying it, it will need to be new & be purchased from a bricks & mortar shop in London. He's nearly 70 so it will have to be a brand he's heard of - he's quite into luxury products so I imagine he knows most big brands, he just won't know anything really new or super niche.

    Style wise she likes kind of classic styling, preferably no (or not too many) jewels on the face & it'll need to be mostly gold or rose-gold (she doesn't wear silver coloured jewelry). Nothing too big or blingy.

    I've suggested the Tag Heuer Aquaracer with rose-gold but I'd like to give her some more informed opinions too. Any suggestion would be much appreciated.

    I have some orange disposable overshoes but you can also get white with green stripes, white with blue stripes and even get kind of clear ones with a big "M" on them.

    But in all seriousness yes, Evans staff in & around London are awful though I'm sure there's a very long thread about that somewhere...

    It's a fair point though; if you're aware that drivers are likely to swerve or brake randomly & you take the appropriate action you are more likely to stay alive/uninjured. Or maybe it's a reminder for the driver behind them to remain alert so other road users stay alive?

    I've been very happy with my Ruitertassen - less sleek-looking than the Mulberry stuff but the leather & workmanship is top-notch.

    Saw that on Facebook earlier, depressing - I will try to keep an eye out in Reading, wouldn't be surprised if they made their way out that way.

    For me vigils seem fine if that's what people want but I really don't like the die-ins. For the record I'd rather not have either done in my name.

    I get the train into Paddington every day then cycle the last couple of miles to the office - we're looking at moving offices & every says to me "I bet you'd love it if we moved to Paddington", the answer is a very firm no. Even on a shit day, the cycling is generally my highlight.
