celebgran your post made me smile, she must think you are a "Friend with Benefits"! Barefaced cheek. I didn't know what 'taking the p*ss' meant when I first came to live in London, until someone explained it to me as follows: Q. "Can you lend me a fiver please?" A. 'Sure'. As the fiver is proffered, the person says "Actually, could you make that a tenner?" she seems to be doing just that.
