Suggestions for my birthday present?

So my birthday is in a couple of weeks time and my girlfriend has allocated me a budget of around 50 (+a curry at my favourite indian! )
As usual when i have money to spend though i am somewhat lacking inspiration.

Thoughts so far although since i haven't committed to i am obviously not totally convinced on:

5L of silkolene and new filter - boring
Partway towards gtting my SAFCII set up - again doesn't thrill me even though i've been meaning to get it done for months now plus i'd have to pay the difference
A dremel - wanted one for ages but think although it would be handy just not much fun really.
New set of flex head ratchet spanners - same as above

Just don't know - all sensible suggestions appreciated. I'm lacking inspiration!

Do something different then! Dont buy something with use the money to put towards doing something you havent done before Or buy some bling for your engine bay, surely you can find something for 50quid??


Note to self: dont be so generous (ex's birthdays, paid for parachute jump, a holiday, gliding lessons, alton towers + expensive meals)

Can see where you are coming from but can't think of ought really plus it might lead to another expensive hobby! Allowance would have been more but we are economising with house purchase very shortly

Thats just gonna make me want new discs + pads and make me remember that i still have to get round to fitting the replacement servo that has been sitting patiently in my shed waiting to be fitted to rectify the clicking noise when i stomp on the middle pedal

A Prince Albert? What is wrong with this guy?

You know what that entails right?

Interesting side note, I know (well, I've met) a guy who had a bash at a DIY 'Prince Albert'. Believe it or not he actually managed it. Then lost 'it' inside his girlfriend.

I'll stop typing and let that thought sink in...

I'd go for the Dremel. I bought one to clean up some engine parts and it's the best tool ever. Mega handy to have around.

Been meaning to get a dremel for ages. So how do dremel dremels score over dremel type tools?
