Absolutly nothing, don't see any major discounts to attract me enough to buy anything I don't really need!
Me neither slept most of the day

Couple of games - Horizon -zero Dawn (PS4) and Forza Horizon 3 for you know what

Oh, and my beautiful LG OLED55E7N a few days ago.

Purchased more in the previous week and days before BF (including Pandora Jewellery, and a Lawnmower and various video game stuff). Today all I have purchased is a couple of Switch games, MK8D + Just Dance 2018.

I would have purchased a bit more, but some of the windows of opportunity are very short and seem to miss a lot of online deals.

Just the Samsung Tab 10 as a present . Disappointed the Holiday firms didn't chip in with a voucher or two . Amazon ,totally useless , at least when they had deals popping up every 15 mins you could get a bit excited before realising it was a rubbish deal
An £8 hoodie, that's about it, also ordered a PS4 Pro bundle during the Currys Glitch for £199 and Currys are supposidly going to honor the deal so that is a nice surprise.

Otherwise another lackluster BF all around,they have never been as good since they first started it a few years ago in the UK and they had £50 Xbox 360's and Wii's.
I recall last year that Cyber Monday was a bit better for electrical related stuff.

Isn't there a Toxic Tuesday or something like that as well to come??

Bargain. Forza Horizon 3 is very good.

I’m well jealous of your new swanky OLED. I wanted one but I didn’t want to lose 3D so I bought this. richersounds.com/tv-…tml


Was £1099 until last night. Then I found Hughes had reduced it too but had a discount code for another £40 off so Richer Sounds are refunding £50 back to me. I’m happy with that. Can sell my current non HDR 4K TV for £400ish according to some completed listings on eBay.


Oh and Bloodborne is like crack. So addictive. Not that I’ve tried crack mind but I assume it’s as addictive.

I'm really glad you're enjoying it. Wait till you meet the bosses, you're in for a treat.
Telly looks great. My first flat screen was a Panasonic 32" about 10 years ago. It's still in the shed, works perfectly

As a kid this program used to make me my pants. Something weird about em
Lots of PS VR stuff, a few Xiaomi Miband thingies and a Doogee BL5000 phone last week, but absolutely nothing today. If I'd been on the ball I would've bought the Curry's PS4 Pro mind!

Is that where you go to watch TV when you’re in trouble with Mrs Deeky?

By treat, do you mean a good beating? I got a bit cocky last night and tried to take on two wolves on a bridge. They killed me and then I tried to go all Rambo to get back to them and died again. Lost 3000 blood stone things. Called it a night at that point.
*Xiaomi mi band 2 for £7 quid odd

What’s a “dash button to diddle” ?
All of mine are yet to be confirmed yet but it could be:

Chromecast for £19
TLOU Remastered £12.50
Uncharted Collection £12.50
Currys PS4 Pro £199 deal.

All need to be there for collection or actually come through!
I was actually looking for items in Amazon Warehouse to top up my basket for add on. Randomly saw a roll of clingfilm and some foreign language Pokémon cards for a few quid ,got them for a laugh. When it arrived the clingfilm was already atleast half used and someone had taken the shiny from the Pokémon card

I know exactly where you mean

*spoiler alert*

Easy kills. Just grab their attention then jib down the stair of the house where you emerged. They can't fit through the door but are too stoopid to just leave you be, and you just take them out gradually as they try to get down to you.

*End of spoiler alert*

You've done really well to get there. I know loads who have given up on the street where the dossers are round the fire
Have you got the sound hooked up to your sound system? The sound effects are brilliant I think.

Oh I see. That’s where I went wrong then as I threw a molotov at them. Cheers Deek.

The dossers weren’t too bad I thought. Just got the attention of one at a time in a “come and have a go if ya ‘ard enough” sort of way before running back a bit. Repeated that and then took out the ones with the guns.

I have got it hooked up. It’s pretty scary at times. Loving it. Really brings you into the world.

Going to make one into a light switch. That's the plan anyway, after it's got me £3 off bin bags.

You can do that? I wonder if it would work with an LiFX light? (I was too tight to pay for Philips Hue. ) Thanks. Gonna look into that.

I wanted a bulb just for my bedroom. It was £37 vs £120 for Hue with a bridge at the time. Made sense to me. At the time anyway.

Thanks for finding that info out. May have to give it a go as it can be a bit annoying when I go into my room and have left my tablet in the kitchen and need to turn the light on.

*Edit*I just realised how “First World Problems” that sounds.

I guess if you just need one I like the idea of them, but not the cost for many of them.

The annoying bit is I think it needs a computer of some sort to be in all the time for it to work. Could just be a pi or something though.

Ah. That could be a problem for me. Maybe I should just sort myself out and link my bulb to my phone too. I usually have one or the other on me.
