    A good Thai cookbook. I’m about to make green curry paste from scratch.

    Proper lifting bike bench.

    Should have bought one years ago. Still haven't. Unlikely to be able to foreseeably. Reminded of the fact every time I spend time scrabbling about in the dirt fixing the bikes.



    Fluff.

    A little cheap yacht (really cheap) of my own after teaching a friend who saved my wife’s life ( a surgeon) navigation for his yacht. He’s not into bikes though.

    An SDS+ drill. There's no comparison to a standard hammer-action drill. For anyone that does any DIY home improvement, I can't recommend one enough.
