    What did you just buy?

    Ignoring food shopping, domestic stuff etc...

    What did you just spend dough on?

    My latest purchase is a pallet of firewood (kiln dried Ash, as you asked)

    Re: What did you just buy?

    A few pre owned Amstrad tape games from eBay.

    New though we ventured to ASDA living and bought a new hoover (Vax compact cylinder) and a 800W Flatbed Microwave (ASDA at Home brand)

    Our existing stuff was looking a bit tired hence the decision to buy some new stuff.

    A small selection of power tools - presents from my grandma for doing up the house! My last set of tools were presents when I bought my first house *cough*splutter*ahem* years ago, adn they're starting to show their edge. Hope this lot last as long

    Second hand GoPro Hero 3+ Black.

    Started snorkeling again this summer for the first time in years. Absolutely incredible summer.

    Now looking to spending more time in the water and doing a casual marine life survey of sorts. Basically just grabbing footage of different species I encounter and building up a 'database' - just to give some continuity to the trips out.

    Re: What did you just buy?

    CTEK car battery charger. Old one is starting to fail, but it is about a decade old so the new one can properly charge my start/stop car battery and is more powerful. The old one has an "on" button that is going flaky, had to press it about 50 times to get it to start, but sealed unit and doubt I can fix that.

    Pair of earphones. Ripped the internal wiring straight out of the last pair while doing vacuuming. Not that exciting. Previous purchase was a car, though, so the dullness is ok.

    Re: What did you just buy?

    Rear brakes (discs and pads) and various bolts for putting things back together - trying hard not to reuse any nuts and bolts that aren't shiny, seems like a false economy given how much of a pain it's been to get things apart this time!

    How long ago is 'just', seeing as we've just had Christmas...?

    I'm about to do that, as the last thing I actually bought was the new Aspire Revvo tank on Tuesday.
