Yeah I wish. But budget just couldn't stretch that far. Seriously though I'm used to a 24" 60hz, and I don't really want anything more than a 28" screen.

I am heading towards a MSI Optix MAG281URF 4K IPS. Thanks for the info.

Oh I am so envious, I would dearly love another dog, especially a border collie. Our rescue dog we had for 8 years, and 15 years later I still miss him dearly. RIP Tommy x

My near neighbours have one about 8 months I guess , really nasty ,but it picked on the wrong dog the other day , out with my three in local field and went over to my K,C S growling and arching back , unlucky for her my Rottweiler ran over and sat between them , followed by my German shepherd . Who lay down next to her . They are very protective of her . Out walking she tends to been between them ,but this time were playing ball so not next to her

Re: What have you just bought?

Replaced our Netgear R7000 with an Asus RT-AX86U Pro thanks to Amazon Spring Sale. This unit is an upgraded version of the AX86U (non Pro).



Still getting used to it and it's differences. Everything seems to be working so far.

Re: What have you just bought?

My wife bought an Air Fryer earlier in the week.
Its already getting quite a bit of use by the family.

I did my weekly chips in it today, they came out just fine.
Should save a bit on electric as we normally use the cooker.

I have 2 Dots, and 3 shows.

They help with my home automation

Re: What have you just bought?

We were shopping for some groceries at Morrisons, and I noticed they had a "buy 6, get 25% off" wine deal.

SWMBO’s preferred tipples are Chablis and Sancerre, and they have both crept up (everywhere) in the last year to around £16 per bottle - lo and behold, Chablis at Morrisons was reduced to £12 a bottle, and the 25% reduction was on top of that making it £9 a bottle - quite a saving.

Bought her 3 bottles, and some Amarone, Barolo, and Barossa Shiraz for me - bargain!

Re: What have you just bought?

Some Navy Rum.


I got into Rum last year when my dad was in ICU last year, I was staying at my sisters and I was going to drink some Vodka I had left there, but my niece had drunk it, so I tried some Lidl Liberte Rum, I loved it and been trying the other Spiced Rums.

Not a big rum fan, but at a Whisky Festival last week, I tried Hampden Estate 8 Year Old, and was very impressed - very smooth.

Re: What have you just bought?

You often see Kraken at the supermarket, a spiced rum from Trinidad and Tobago. I prefer their 1919 but that naturally has quite a vanilla note so not for those who don't want spice on their rum.

Re: What have you just bought?

Aldi do some nice Whiskies. Their 8yr blend, Highland Black, is pretty nice but the price has been rising £14-15 while their single malts also very good are still £17.
