In a major bout of avarice, we treated ourselves to an Ipad on our hols. Yes, I know, I got a spiffy new smart phone recently. And was gifted a Kindle for Christmas. Do you think if I make them all cases they count as business expenses?
It was hard to decide on a fabric but in the end I concluded that geeky things should be covered in more geeky things.
