Re: What have you just bought?

Cheapish electric razor for my son - needs to start removing the fluff. Probably need to show him wet shaving later but while he only needs a quick "rub" once in a while.

Re: What have you just bought?

A pair of Huawei Freebud earphones for my P20 Pro.

The sound is prettty decent, however they do look a lot like the apple Airpods.

I was using fortnightly lenses called acuvue oasys hydraclear plus (which is ideal if you wear them every day for the fortnight) but I didn't hence why have since opted to go for the daily lenses and the ones that I now wear are called Focus Dailies All Day Comfort with these dailies I can wear when I chose without any waste as I was finding that I was only wearing the fortnightly lenses only a couple of times then having to bin them due to them being fortnightly lenses now with the dailies I will have no waste since I will be wearing once then binning them.

She got in a right tizzy trying to fit the data cable for the umpteenth time, as Win10 would not see the drive (I suggested it was a bad lead).

2 pins snapped off, all the others twisted and flattened.

Not so much as a bargain now, bin job I suspect.

I had contact lenses for 15 years and my eyes started to dry up so I had to stop and get glasses, which I do not like does not matter how much I pay for them , but I have no choice, I loved the contacts,

Nash contacts have really came on now as I suffer from dry eye the contacts that I used to use are for people who suffer from dry eye maybe you could ask your optician for a trial of these, I personally found acuvue oasys hydraclear plus extremely good most optician's offer free trial so you will not be out of pocket. I know I was sent away with quite a few packs but I found acuvue oasys hydraclear plus to be the best for my eyes anyway they are a bit more expensive than other lenses but totally worth it. Don't know how much they would be for occasional use as I was the 12 month direct debit scheme and my monthly plan was 22.00 a month for a 3 month supply and i have just changed my plan for dailies I'm going to be 21.00 with the option to change my supply, what I like about going on the 12 month Direct Debit scheme is you get eye test every year plus glasses with the value up to 100.00 and if I get glasses say at 150.00 they take the 100.00 off.
