In theory I don't know, as we haven't opened them yet - herself is on duty 8-2 today and tomorrow so we'll open them after lunch, which has just gone in the oven.

In practice, I chose it, bought it, wrapped it and stuck it under the tree, so I am aware what it it is...Nexus 7 32Gb. Or it was when I wrapped it...if she were me I would have substituted the box content by now just to lull me into a false sense of security. Big Grin | :-D

But she isn't that duplicitous. She just used to try everything short of an x-ray to work out what her presents were, so I took Extreme Measures to prevent her working them out. I think the worst was the gift-wrapped cardboard box that took half the fridge space, and which I insisted had to stay in there until she opened it on Xmas day. Contents? A Singing Lobster, similar to "Billy the Wide Mouth Bass"[^] She sent so long trying to work out what I would get her that needed to be kept cool that she never spotted the real present out in plain sight. Smile | :)
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
