January Sales.

As we’re already heading to the end of January did you pick up a Image in the sales.

As I’m on Gordon Brown’s payrole I avoided the sales and window shopping but surely someone picked up a cheap laptop or telly..........

My CD player was on its last legs and finally gave up the ghost the other week. Music is really important to me and I've been running an MP3 player through an old set of computer speakers, but that was not great.

Yesterday I went to Tesco to look what they had in CD micro systems and found they had a display model of a Sony with 25% off, which meant I got it for £20 less.

I'm really, really pleased with it. The sound quality is infinitely better than my old CD player and I can now enjoy all my CDs as they deserve to be heard. :D

Completely agree with you Tony. Given the choice between giving up my telly and giving up my Hi Fi.....No contest.

I'd do the rock star thing and the telly would be out of the window. Its taken me years to build my system and it lives in a room where Aley is NOT allowed.

Is it really sad to be in love with a machine :oops: :oops: :oops:

I've had one for 3 years Dotsie. I have a confession to make....The meat cooks brilliantly and the fat runs out into a handy tray. The idea is that you throw the fat away and eat the fat free meat.

I make slices of fried bread out of the fat..... I remember being poor :shock:

I'm sure you'll love it .... Dead easy to clean and if you keep off the fried bread very healthy. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Being snowed in had its advantages in that I wasn't able to go shopping, therefore avoided being tempted to spend money on things I don't need at prices reduced from the sublime to the gor blimey.
Just checking my bank balance puts a stop to such longings too.
Gave in to buying a book from Amazon for 1p (+p&p)

Same here! My new boots had £20 off but were still £40...

I've managed to find them online now, they are Rohde 2903, cheapest price is £55 online, so much for things being cheaper on the Net. Most places seem to be selling them at £70. Gulp.

This is a cracker.
Had to go into town for an appointment and got there a bit too early. It was cold and beginning to rain so I decided to hit the charity shops. First one I came to was The Red Cross who are doing so much for the people of Hiati. On the rack I found a black double breasted jacket that still had the pockets sewn up and in the inside pocket were a set of spare buttons. I don't think it had ever been worn.

Price on the ticket THREE QUID. I gave the lady a fiver and told her to keep the change.

On the way to my appointment I called into a gents outfitters and something similar was 65 quid.

Now thats a bargain and some good done as well.

Well happy!

LOL no, there is nothing wrong with being in love with tech. Good idea to keep the cat out of the wiring... not only could she mess it up, she could zap herself... Image

That is a real concern to me Tina. The back of my Hi Fi looks like the National Grid and the loom of wires that run around my office is as thick as a babies arm.

Do Cats ever chew cables. Aley is very playful and the slightest thing can spark (excuse the pun) off a frenzy of kitten enthusiasm.

Some of the wires are only sound cables and others have little power in them but there are the big heavy wires that carry the punch to take out a human so no chance for Aley then.

The whole system is protected by earth leakage circuit breakers that are so sensitive they flip out if a light bulb blows......Will this save her from getting fried if she ever did chew through to the bare wire.

This is a serious question and NOT one of my usual posts that are full of what you find in Aley's litter tray :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yes they can, if unattended, usually small kittens that are teething. You and Aley are probably safe. seriously...really
