A Blackview BV9500 phone.
Not the greatest spec in the world but it took 5 days to get the battery down to 10% and it's ruggedized so it's pretty indestructible. Fast C charging, wireless charging, IP68 rating, 3.5mm jack, dual sim. £316 from Amazon

Just looked that phone up - looks like a good deal, nice spec, and rugged.

I'm a OnePlus fan/user myself, but I would consider that phone.

I was eagerly waiting for the OnePlus 6T and a patient walked in 2 weeks ago with the Blackview. I did some research and decided to save myself a couple of hundred quid

Re: What have you just bought?

Cheapskate here is still using his copy of Office 2000 pro together with the free M$ plug-in to handle the later file formats.

Just bought a litre bottle of Captain Morgan white rum for £16. Bargain.

Re: What have you just bought?

After much thought I have decided to keep our built in wardrobes and just revamp them or should I say hubby has talked me out of doing away with the built in wardrobes as he said it's a lot of hassle.

I have just bought this and hopefully the end result will give us more storage as atm we have a lot of wasted space plus revamping the space is I admit a lot less hassle for hubby.

Then after Christmas we will think about replacing the wardrobe doors.

Re: What have you just bought?

I was given loads of stainless steel staples, then found that they are specific to one type of stapler. They can be very expensive, but I found a new one for only £15 on ebay.
