Re: What have you just bought?

£500 of second hand furniture/appliances for my sons new rented pad, from the local hospice charity shop. Some real bargains.
Worth it to get rid of the bleeder!

Re: What have you just bought?

Some AA and AAA cells. Frustrating when the remote dies and there's none in the cupboard. Was going to crack a joke but this is a family show .

It arrived a week ago, but due to a family emergency, haven’t had time to play with it.

Things have calmed down, so set it up today, and linked it to our Sony TV remote and Alexa (only for on/off and mute/unmute (which works on the soundbar/woofer as well)) - works fine, but had to move it out of the TV cabinet all the other kit is in, as the glass seemed to stop the signal.

Very happy with it, so thank you, once again.

2 pairs of jeans by click-and-collect from Asda as they never have my size in stock in store.

Glad you found it as useful as I have

I love finding little gems like that
