My problem with being on the top bunk is the recurring thought that the person below is looking up and smirking.

Technically, I didn't buy it but a nice man on the Internet has sent me this for free! Finally... A legitimate copy of one of my favourites.

Hooray for nice men in the internet. Though never agree to meet them in person and always tell a grown up if they ask for your photo.

Middle age is dull. I have bought a ‘waste separation and recycling unit’. Ok ok. A posh bin.

It just saves me stacking the stuff on the side, now we have the purple bins.

It even has a 4ltr food cadddy that clips in.

I did not pay £200. I got it off Amazon. I also had a big chunk of vouchers.

This is something my daughter bought for all the family to use.

Attachment:
Echelon.jpeg


It also constitutes a first world problem because:

a) There's no space in the house for it, so the plan is to put it in the garden shed that we cleaned out of garden toys and other misc. crap a couple of weeks ago.

b) The total weight is 57kg. In my condition I probably shouldn't attempt to move it. My wife had a cast removed from her broken wrist earlier this week and isn't allowed to 'lift anything heavy.' My daughter had a damaged intervertebral disc removed a while ago and has to be careful lifting heavy stuff. There's no one else here who could lift it.

My thinking was that we should unpack it and move it piece by piece into the shed and assemble it there. On unpacking it, in the hall, I found that the chassis contains most of the weight, and it's still too heavy for me to lift. I'm going to have to give this some thought.

I have an 8 bulb light fitting to finish wiring up, and the provided bits and instructions make nothing like electrically safe sense; so I bought this, because for pennies more I also get the multimeter I need but have forgotten why!

Possibly, but in the end I used a trolley to get it to the back door, then my daughter and I did a two-person lift to get it to the shed, where I assembled it. We have to run an extension cable from the garage to power it, but it IS working. If we use it with the door open, we have a wonderful view of the shrubs on the opposite side of the garden.

New sofa. It is huge and soooooo comfy.

No this is mine too, just like the carpets. :)

I’ve bought a couple of things over the last couple of months. Nothing as big as a new carpet, or sofa, but nice little additions.

I got this just yesterday and it’s fab.

Attachment:
870CD5D8-1275-49D6-BC7C-1247CDC6294C.jpeg


It’s an SD card reader that plugs into my phone. I’ve not been using my camera for the last couple of years as my 11 year old Mac has stopped recognising the card and is so slow that even if I do manage to get the pictures it takes hours to do anything with them. Now I can just import them to my phone. I tried it yesterday and it is magic. I can use my camera again :luv:

A few weeks ago I also treated myself to a big treat. I bought a gimbal to use with my phone.

I got it second hand (£50) to use to make little videos. It’s so clever and I love it. It’s certainly not something that I ‘need’ (hence it feels like a big treat for the cost), but it’s a lot of fun.

I just need to find the confidence to use it when we go to nice places now, instead of just around the garden.

Oh, cool! I like the all-in-one remote and the collision avoidance stuff it does, but it's too much of a price hike to upgrade from the Mini 2.

Does it do "follow me"?

Yeah, it's a pretty hefty increase over the Mini 2 but with my track record, I don't trust myself without the collision avoidance ;)

The AIO remote is pretty neat, basically a little Android device with their app pre-installed. You can get a remote that has a connector for your phone etc. but I'd rather have a display that doesn't get interrupted by distractions like phone calls and texts etc.

Apparently yes, although I haven't tried that out yet. It also does "predefined" camera movements, like I can tell it to focus on me and then do a spiral movement up and around me.

Yeah, for anything under 250g the rules are a lot more lenient. Still need to register with the CAA though, as this has a camera.
