Predictably, there weren't any £38 DVD players in Argos either. Not that this stopped me from buying one, since I wasn't quite as overdrawn as expected, and they had them for £44.87 (including a SCART lead, meaning that the total cost would have been practically identical to buying the one from Argos) in ASDA. The manufacturer's called Pacific, who I've never heard of, but the player had a 4 star review from What TV & Video on the box and ASDA were selling it with a free 3 year warranty, so it can't be *total* tat. Besides, it's silver and sexy, and at £45, if it falls apart within a year, I don't care.
So Fleur's going to get a surprise when she gets home tonight. It should take her mind off the fact she's had her first day back at work today after the school holidays, anyway.
