No worries Mate, I too will always be a fan of DPM too.
And on a slightly different note, I am convinced the woman species can smell new additions from a thousand feet, in fact I may well create a scientific experiment, to prove this theory, this is my plan.
1.Go out ,and buy some surplus,I feel at this stage, I will not be too specific on pattern or nation.
2. Sneak the for-said surplus into the family abode, perhaps in a plastic bag to mask the "Army-crap-smell".
3. I will then surreptitiously attempt to climb the loft ladder, and deposit the supplies into the reception area of the loft space, where it will be classified and suitably stored at a later date, I suspect that a good time do this part would be perhaps when the woman is watching some asinine meaningless crap on TV, or better still on the phone to one of her fellow species, talking about woman stuff...N.B. I will remember to fully lubricate the rungs on the ladder with some suitable oily stuff, to create a stealthy access to the loft area.
4. Once the access has been successful, and this part of the experiment has been fulfilled, I will monitor the likely feedback in the loft hatch space, and await for the sound I most resent to hear, which generally goes something like " Gary...'ave you bought more of that Army crap, how much do you need, I just don't understand it,and it stinks, my Mum said so too, she popped in for coffee the other morning ,and she said your house smells damp, I said to her no Mum the house is fine, it's HIS army crap it's stinking the house out...blah,blah.....blah....Gary are you listen'..blah...blah.
5. At this stage I will gently close the loft hatch, crack open a beer , and smile lovingly at my new additions, like they were the most beautiful treasures a man could own.
Whatcha reckon is it worth a go
