8x4ft 18mm phenolic plywood for bedding out the trailer.

I could pay 70 and collect from a place about 25 miles away, or pay 62 including 19 for delivery all the way from daaarn saaarf.

Chose to pay less and have it delivered obviously.

Swan food. A big 10kg sack of it.

There is a swan family in the marina and they go round tapping on the boats that people are on to get given food. Mr Swan even taps on my kitchen window They have been eating me out of bread so I'll keep a handful of this food to throw them when they become annoying.

Pity they don't fcuk off somewhere for the winter rather than mugging me. Wink

Oh yes, 3 fence panels from Wickes. It just came to under the free delivery amount so I ordered a large box of various screws to take me over the free delivery point and save 7.99. Pity the box of screws cost 13. Brick Wall

Leather gloves for winter walks rather than for motorcycling. I have plenty of bike gloves already. These ones look
like they may be army surplus. 8 delivered.

Had to retire my old HG leather summer gloves due to holes appearing in the palms.
I went for a pair of ARMR. Similar looking and fairly comfortable, let's see how long they last.

A Playseat Challenge gaming chair for the wheel and pedal set that arrived today.

First time I've tried gaming with a wheel - what a difference.

Still need to get a good joystick.

The bank account's taking a bit of a hammering this week!

Caveats: this is a post for old ppl who's eyes are fucked not for ppl who's eyes were already fucked before they got old i.e. your eyes are roughly "even" and you can get by on Poundland's finest opticalwear Wink

Anyhoo, the aforementioned quid-slinger's offerings are getting annoying. Either I hear a spontaneous crack and a lens drops out or an arm pings off. And they scratch really easily Sad

I've really splashed out this time... on eBay Very Happy

First up I got some +2.5's for close-up stuff on jobs and stretched to a whole 6. I was actually quite surprised how comfortable they are. I'm not going to turn this into a spam-fest but they're the only cheap ones I could find billed as "scratch-resistant" - time will tell.

Then I saw "progressive focus with blue light filter" oooh! sounds kewl Smile These are obviously all mass-produced Chinese crap and I got a deal on 4: bifocal +2.0, a couple of +2.50 and this new fangled +1 to +7 progressive focal. As I suspected, I should probably stick to +2.0 for screen and reserve +2.50 for things like circuit board work and phone repair.

The blue-light filter does take the edge off things if you stare at computer screens all day but there's probably some monitor setting that does the same thing Rolling Eyes Talk about cheap though: the lens and bridge are all one piece of plastic with a scratchy bit of flashing where it sits on your nose Sad I assume one mould and then ground to spec.

As to this "progressive focus" thing, I totally don't understand it; I expected something more... dramatic. Seems better than bifocal though for computer screens.

A new dishwasher.

The Sharp one I bought a while ago is crap and doesn't do a good job of cleaning at all.

Bought a basic Bosch one.

And a trail cam:

Cubasis 3, half price Black Friday sale. Didn't want to spend 50 on an app, but I miss having Cubase, and although I'm impressed by what Garageband can do on the iPad, it's lacking in some areas.
