Argos, there is a discord you can join that gives out alerts when different shops get stock in. It's still luck of the draw though, as they sell out extremely quickly.

An impact driver and a bunch-o'-bits fo it.

I'd never used one until very recently and now I realise they are really super handy and so much nicer to use for screwing and unscrewing stuff than a cordless drill. Plus, if I need to drill holes and then screw straight into them, I no longer need to faff around changing bits as I've got two separate tools to do the things (tools with totally different battery systems, natch).

I have no idea why the pic is so blurry, maybe it's something to do with how excited I clearly was to have some POWAH in my tools.

I didn't buy it, but I did get a big desk for free and it was another chance to use my little cordless tools soI excitedly put it together in the shed to use as a little 'workbench'. I'm also going to try and start getting my tools and things off the floor as I'm going to end up losing things soon.... We have a lot of stuff in the shed (and it's a really big shed) so this seemed like a good place to start.

I would suggest that you don't have a shed and what you actually have is a garage. And what you should have is a workshop full of tools and sawdust. That's what I would have

We call that the shed, as the garage is under the house. I am aiming to gradually install tool stuff and move on the other junk.

The garage is also full of 'stuff', but also our cars fit in there too. It's slightly ridiculous how much vehicle storage capability this house has.

I feel like there’s something more interesting than a plastic ruler at the bottom but your photo has cut it off. What is it, GJ?

It's so we can get the angles right when cutting the mitres for the upstands. The walls aren't too far out, but enough that it would be noticeable if we cut at 45 degree angles.

We originally bought the same as Mali, but online.

It never turned up, and by the time Aldi had agreed it was lost they were out of stock.

Saw this one on yesterday's Prime day.

A game which I didn't realise I've already got on my 3DS, a hard drive that didn't come with a screw to hold it in place and a clamp for my camera that is a lot shorter than I expected.

Do you have many games? If only there was some way of keeping track of them, like a list or something.

That's what the Internet said but, it wasn't. Luckily I kept the box my PC came in and inside the welcome pack there was a tiny little packet containing the smallest screw I ever did see. That was the one.

The screw in the frame of The Boy's first set of specs was the smallest I've ever seen. And dropped. That was a hairy moment

Just looked back through old photos and saw that his first glasses were Jake and the Neverland Pirates themed. Don't think he'd even know who they were now. Nearly 7 years ago!

That door looks wider at the top than the bottom.

And the door doesn't fit in the frame as it was shut.
