Modest demands

I asked my son Will this morning what he wanted for Christmas. He had suggested a keyboard a few weeks ago but he's gone off the idea. He told me that he had already ordered his present from Amazon, and paid for it using the family debit card (we trust him). What did he order? A boxed set of Jeeves and Wooster DVDs - the Fry and Laurie versions, of course. Total cost £30. And he insists that he doesn't want or need anything else!

I'm slightly concerned that there is a method in his madness. Next year he'll be 17 and he's keen to drive my MR2. Trouble is, insurance for him would run to about £2,500 a year. Is he hoping that a modest outlay at Christmas will soften us up for his birthday?  He's going to disappointed, I fear.
