    I've found Live Stock generally cost twice as much as you paid at the LFS, since you have to take your other half out for dinner.... "you bought a R300 fish so you can now take me out for dinner now....."

    try putting in underfloor heating and solid oak floors so i dont have to heat the water too much....or the redecorating you have to do because the dark stained oak cabinet i have from SA, doesnt match the walls in Norway!!!!!!
