Won't want to bore you with the whole list that I got from Ikea last weekend but it was of a similar level and many of them which added up to many £££!!

With the Amazon £10 off a £50 spend I dropped a few vouchers and got an SSD drive and caddy for my laptops optical drive and a 3TB Red Hard Drive as a backup for my NAS.

Boring, yet vital purchases!

Ah damn, I'm needing a new hard drive as well. I couldn't think of anything to use the voucher for and didn't want to spend it on an impulse purchase.

On a more boring, more vital note I got the car serviced and MOT'd today with no issues at all which is a good to get out of the way. Also picked up a blue little yarn Yoshi as Game had them slightly reduced, still a stupid price but the little pink one is so cute.

I've been fancying trying a plus sized bike for a while (sort of in between a normal MTB and fat bike) but been undecided whether it's worth the money however I managed to come across an ex-showroom bike of the type and size I want so that's hopefully on its way and if it's not worth it, I can sell it on without losing as much as on a new one.

I'm very tempted by a Stache 29+, hoping my mate gets one in as a demo bike in my size!

Ha, that's exactly what I've bought - a Stache 7 29+. I've wanted one for a while but I couldn't justify the price when I hadn't been able to try one, some of the fat enthusiasts find the plus size pointless against the bigger tyres and some now think the 29+ pointless against the quickly spreading 27.5+ bikes. Trek are unusual in opting for the larger 29+ tyres on a trail bike unlike Surly and Genesis whose 29+ bikes are steel framed long distance bikes, Trek obviously needed some pretty unusual geometry at the back to make it work but they're reasoning seemed pretty sound in that the bigger, softer tyres could soak up more at the back. The slightly annoying thing is it's a while from when the trails will be in the condition I want the Stache for but I got a cracking deal on it (assuming it's the right bike that arrives, it's from Trek themselves but been debating model years with them :|) and the road bike I've been after has been delayed again, it seems a sign to go with the fun MTB instead!

Well, the Dell is going back, screen is so poor - not sure if it's normal for the model, but light bleed, uneven blacks and very washed out colours. Also hangs a bit when browsing, which it really shouldn't do.

Going for one of these.

Skylake i7, 8gb ram for £560. Comes with a 500gb HDD, but I'll sell that and swap for a 240GB SSD I already have.

Very good value for money, hope the screen is decent!

That looks rather sleek. I was expecting a lump of a laptop from PC Specialist.

Haha, yeah, not their normal bag.

Seems to get pretty good reviews. Only downside really is the lack of dual channel RAM, slightly below par trackpad, but not a deal breaker.

Be nice if it charged via USB C too, but at least it has a port for it, which should come in handy with my Nexus phone and somewhat future proofed.

Dyson V6 Fluffy. Fed up with lugging the big casuast up and down stairs and ground floor is now all flat floor, no carpets, so made sense. Freakishly expensive though.
