We are looking to buy a house but I will have to sell a bit more than a few VCJ to make any difference so small purchases are not an issue!! :lol:

I don't discuss what I buy and if I do, I get the 'ol eye roll. She can't stand Star Wars and it drives her nuts that I'm "obsessed" with it. She did get pretty upset at me a few weeks ago when she saw there were a lot more boxes than she remembered. I quickly changed the subject to divert her attention, but it's not working as well of late. :o

I wish I had one. My collects other stuff so completely understands my obsession. The only downside is that she's extremely clumsy, she will throw her bra at the washing bin at night time and still manages to knock my figures down.

I just wait until she notices and say (In a cartman voice) OI, stay away from my stuff hippy, now get back to the kitchen and make me a pie with Cheesey Puffs.
At this point Im usually rushed to A&E.

I was upfront from day one with Julie - I have been collecting for 28 years, I have travel over the world with this stuff, 50% of my friends are from the hobby - my collection is going nowhere. And she is mega cool with that! She still glazes over when I explain the minutiae of variances in logo size on Palitoy cards - but I think I can forgive her that! ahahahaha She's a good egg.
