Re: What have you just bought?

A rather nice digital multicooker/blender/soupmaker:

http://www.idealworld.tv/gb/pp/nutri...FSEL0wod-rIAsw

£80 inc 3 year warranty. Current Amazon price is c. £215 and the reviews look good so at this special offer price it had to be done.

A crate and mat for my 7 month old cockapoo as he has destroyed yet another bed, and I can't keep shelling out £70 a time to replace them. So far not heard a peep out of him

Try putting a blanket over the cage - our vet advised this to us when we first got our dog (a rescue Dalmatian), as it makes them feel safe.

Re: What have you just bought?

A new printer for my eldest boy for when he returns to Uni for his final year.

School shirts for my youngest for when he starts back school after the summer break.

Nomination charm for my future daughter just cos I wanted to say thank you to such a special and wonderful young lady, she really has been my rock this last week and I love her.

3 "Y" shaped Verve brand hose couplers to set up watering for my tubs/pots whilst we're away. £1 each for a copy of the Hozelock version that was £5.

Re: What have you just bought?

Hue hub v2 and a couple of the richer colour bulbs as v1 bulbs couldn't do blue or greens that well. Also the new Hue hub can Siri controlled which works a charm and much better than Alexa. Very impressed.
