    I have just saved myself a quid by fully dismantling my decade-old Dell keyboard and reassembling it into working order. It was working OK, but I've taken the opportunity to clean it out - and removed enough food for a Ray Mears documentary - I've also discovered that it actually has drain-holes for accidental beverage incursions.

    I could have just defaulted to using one of the spares, but it has a nice polish from a decade's use.

    The water after I had washed the keys would have made quite a passable consommé.

    Today, I saw a clock for £30 - some slight and easily fixable case damage - other than that it seemed generally OK. Obviously, I didn't need it, but, after a short period of ritual agonisation, I decided that I haven't spent much lately, so I decided to get it.

    More of a wall-clock than a floor-clock, though.

    Imagine my surprise and delight when I found that the price ticket actually said £10 - Bargain!

    I've just started it up temporarily and it's all running well. I'll give it a good look at one day soon, but I have a cuckoo clock to tart up for someone first..

    I usually order my vape juice online from a store in derby.
    I got a call from them today to advise my order had been mixed up with someone elses and to keep the ejuice anyway.

    on opening the package , i was surprised to see several 120ml bottles totaling £65 and every flavour i liked anyway.

    Even better , they are resending my original order out today as well.


    .... should have enough for the next 6 months now :)

    winner !
