I've been using the K800 keyboard for about 4 months now and it is an excellent keyboard. Keeps a reasonable charge if you keep the backlight on low enough. Quite a replacement.

Re: What have you just bought?

A new washing machine - the current one has conked out after 13 years, and the repairman who came out to assess it said it would cost nearly as much to repair as to buy a new one.

Costco online is our friend....

Agree with that. If they have what you want they're usually very good price wise and the service is always excellent.

Re: What have you just bought?

A 4.5 kg frozen turkey (no giblets) from Iceland for £5.00. Got one for £10 last week and it was delicious so I didn't hesitate when they were further reduced to £5 today. It's gone in our freezer for now...

Nothing wrong with turkey once one thinks outside the box.

Couple of little gem lettuce and some broccoli. No Iceberg but the gems will do.

I reckon we've had about half a dozen in the last 10 years so maybe not quite like your mum...

Re: What have you just bought?

Iceberg lettuce. Smaller than usual and 20p more expensive but at least there were some and from Spain. A few pre-packed courgettes as well but no pick and mix.

Re: What have you just bought?

A Toyota Celica for hubby 2005 plate, 53,000 miles, FSH and I must say it is immaculate as it's been in the same family since new. Hubby said I'm not allowed to post a picture so as a woman I have made my avatar his new toy car (not really posting a picture in my mind) LOL

A Daewoo slow cooker on offer from Robert Dyas, delivered free to my local Rymans.

We've never had a slow cooker so looking forward to trying it out
