Re: What have you just bought?

Just bought my youngest a underage driving lesson which he loves. This is a belated birthday present as I had promised him one but with everything going on it needed to be delayed so today he gave me a gentle reminder when he asked Mum when am I going to get my driving lesson that you promised for my birthday bless him his birthday was in May. I said he should of reminded sooner and he said Mum I did not want to come across as selfish.

Nice attitude that boy - it comes from good parenting.

I sometimes 2 power identical tools when I see them on a good deal because buying replacement batteries can be so expensive and having a reserve battery and charger is always handy.

Re: What have you just bought?

Dyson V6 Top Dog portable vacuum cleaner - normally, £259.99, Aldi have them at £149.99.

Excellent for picking up all the hair shed by our Dalmatian, without having to get the big Dyson out.

Re: What have you just bought?

Two 550g packs of Piri piri half chicken for £2.69 each at Lidl this morning. Review in the paper said this was indistinguishable from Nando's at three times the price.

Re: What have you just bought?

Stan Smith black shoes that ticks all the boxes as it is what son wants, within the school guidelines for footwear so that makes weenie a very happy Mum as this really is a win win situation for everyone

Plus Adidas sent me a 15% off code for supplying a review on my last purchase

Re: What have you just bought?

A set of DR Lo-Riders (bass guitar strings)

I've a couple of days to play the crap out of them to get rid of that nasty, new string brightness.
