Re: What have you just bought?

The X-Files case files book, a CD "Beat the Devil's Tattoo" by BRMC just for one track, A clip for my Kaweco Sport Fountain pen, and a PAID stamp.


I'm thinking about buying a Conway Stewart Churchill Edition fountain pen, but at around £600 I'll have to get a job first.

Not bought it yet, but I'm thinking of buying Conway Stewart Churchill Edition, but at around £600 I need to have a good think.

First cut today (second cut of the year) - very pleased with the mower.

We have a back lawn of about 120 square metres, and it took about 10 minutes; itís a lot quieter than the previous corded electric mower.

It used about a third of the charge - my only (slight) niggle is that the handle (which folds) isnít height adjustable; it didnít cause me a problem, but if youíre taller than six foot, it might (the next model up, the 38Li, has an adjustable handle).

Re: What have you just bought?

2 x Mackmyra Classic online tasting sets (4 x 5CL samples (and a free gift)).

They were half price, so I bought 2...

Each set contains a 5cl sample of Brukswhisky, Svensk Rok, Mack by Mackmyra, Svensk EK, and a mystery sample.

I had some Amazon vouchers so bought myself a nice Bible. https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ESV-Study...ot_top?ie=UTF8



In case you think this is expensive have a snoop on Amazon and you get to https://www.amazon.co.uk/Heirloom-Si...8942016&sr=8-2.
