Re: What have you just bought?

Job lot of 1:72 scale aircraft models from Japan to put in the stash. Hopefully these slip under the customs radar unlike the last one.

I've been building a couple of combat aircraft in that scale over the past couple of weeks - Always a challenge.

Re: What have you just bought?

A silver 16 plate Mondeo estate titanium - 22400 miles from Ford dealer. It's a petrol so much rarer at the moment than diesel (and no-one wants the 1.5 diesel). I did see others better value but they are hundreds of km away and local buying is more useful when things go wrong.

Downside is we need to borrow to buy so the dealer HP or highstreet, the later is cheaper by over £100 a month but HP is secured on the car so can hand back if payment issues and can pay early with no fees which we hope to do around Oct/Nov. But fees are now controlled.

We didn't want to borrow but my VM shares are no longer growing as they were in Jan and we need the bigger car before October. My wife's Fiesta would be too tight for our camping holiday.

Flights to Rome in June, and booked AirBnB for 3 nights in Rome (then catching the fast train to Florence, hire a car and drive around North Italy for 4 days).

Re: What have you just bought?

Bits and bobs for when youngest son moves into his brother's room in June, we have a lot of work ahead of us as eldest son moves out start of May and his brother wants to totally revamp his room he wants the wall paper removed and walls plastered, laminate floor lifted and carpet down, new double bed and all that goes with that plus he wants the cupboard made into a wardrobe so his new bedroom will be our holiday this year as we can't do everything but our youngest said giving the choice holiday or bedroom done he picks bedroom as he has waited 16 years for this room lol


Sister in Law 60th birthday gift personalized wooden wine box with a bottle of fizz inside of course.

Re: What have you just bought?

About 6 weeks ago I bought a Rollei City Traveler XL Tripod Titanium (Carbon fibre legs)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


The last week I bought a Rollei City Traveler XL Tripod Titanium (Carbon fibre legs)


https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Not bad for around £200.

Next on my List is the Nikon 105mm Macro lens but at £850 I'll get it on my Credit Card at the very end of April, and pay off in June.

Overnight bag plus bits and bobs for my Dad as he is going into hospital tomorrow, will be taking him to Hairmyres at 09:30.

I pray he behaves and does as he is told.
