    Shindigger beer.

    Free delivery comes within 3 hours at perfect drinking temperature. (always been within the hour for me so far!)

    Bought a Hybrid bike for £400 from Halfords and had to build it myself, screwed a pedal on the wrong way and broke the threading on the crank arm. Halfords can't fix it until 'after lockdown' so I've just sold it for £350 on eBay.

    Maybe it's the lack of coasters but I'm itching for an adrenaline hit so I've just ordered a better off road Mountain Bike so I can go berserk in the woods.

    I've also invested some of the money I've been saving while furloughed on The Football Index. With the major European leagues all coming back it's a good time to invest. Would definitely recommend it if you've got a good knowledge of the game.

    A lovely pair of Oakleys, on sale for cycling and rowing.

    Well I’ve been doing rather well. I was quite proud of how sensible I’ve been. Managed to talk myself out of buying a hot tub and have been saving quite a bit by working from home.

    That was until this week where it’s all gone to pot...

    After several weekends of pottering in the garden and planting flowers I decided that I needed to boost my ManCreds, so bought an excessive stainless steel gas barbecue and am now in the process of buying a new car... It was all going so well! :sob::tearsofjoy:

    That was your first mistake, charcoal BBQs outclass gas ones in every way! But fresh wheels are always a good choice

    I've been buying shares on T212. Seems as good as time as any to get in whilst they're taking a battering.

    Currently debating whether to put a deposit on my next tattoo because stuff it, we're in lockdown and I want something to look forward to, or wait until I'm working again. I quit my job because my a levels were coming up, look where that got me!!

    I felt good as I have bought significantly less stuff than I would normally (my only clothes shopping treat has been some underwear) and due to no commute and no eating out I've saved a lot of money. So we're buying a house!

    I've bought lots of odds and sods.

    Things like my mug tree, where all the mugs kept falling off, finally became irritating enough for me to buy a replacement. If a mug holder won't hold mugs then it's clearly failed at its purpose.

    Silly grown up thing like gas electric and food. It’s surprising how much working from home cost! That and chocolate. Lots of chocolate. Oh and cat toys.

    Since the whole world is conspiring against me, I decided to buy an incredibly rare PSTV, to buy and play the incredibly rare Persona 4 Golden, for roughly around £300...

    I just learned today that they have unceremoniously released a Persona 4 Golden port on steam...
