Did anyone find anything decent, this year?
I had a good rummage through Amazon's offerings, but nothing decent appeared.

I bought a light bulb...
That's as exciting as Black Friday was for me, this year!

Aaah, that would explain the lack of decent deals anywhere..

You're quite right, it's not until next week.
Amazon have apparently drawn out "Black Friday Week" to two whole fucking weeks..

Holy fucking shit!!



Longest Friday ever!!

Don't worry Jay, other retailers have done exactly the same, so basically every day of every week is Black Friday. And like Amazon, none have any real "deals" worth buying. But it gets the eejits into a buying frenzy anyway. Like a drop of blood in a pool of piranhas.

My a 3 seater that couch looks the same as that but also has 2 recliners, I also have a two seater that reclines. Mine is yonks old though, around 10 years.

Yeah, decided against recliners.

The 2 single seats are recliners, but they barely ever get used as such.


Literally just a couple of days ago, my sister was visiting.
She did the old "legs over the arm of the chair" thing, at which point I said.. "you know that's a recliner, right??"

.. she didn't know.

We've had them about 6 years...

Figured there was no point splashing out on a recliner sofa if it's never going to get used!
Might as well just get a decent comfy couch.

I have a recliner and I still put my legs over the side of the chair to get comfy in the evenings when I'm even more tired and restless than I am during the day.

£379 is a bargain for a three seater.

|edit| Crap spelling FWT!!

Yeah, that was the decider

They don't call me "You cheap git" for nothing!!!
Ordered from https://www.furniturechoice.co.uk #NoAd!!

By comparison, the two recliner seats were £589 each, (albeit about 5/6 years ago) so we've got a 3 seater for about 1/3rd of the price of two single seaters!!!

Not spotting anything amazing, if I'm honest.
(But then, my recent bank balance is going "FUCK, STOP LOOKING!!!")

Rhythm Paradise Megamix is currently £23.35 on Amazon.
I had a fantastic time with this game, playing far much more than I usually play anything, lately!
Highly recommended

I bought two Dickens mince pies and some olive oil ear drops from Sainsburys...

And yeah, Black Friday, what a load of shite... Was probably worth it once, but this being the UK and all... You can literally take the "Deal" right out of the equation.

If Amazon did CPC Romboxes, I would've treated myself to one of them, unfortunately though, they stopped manufacturing them in the 80's so I pretty much screwed!

Absolutely devastated I missed out on one the other week on Ebay, totally forgot about it and was planning to do the auld sit till 5 seconds to go thing, I never and it went for a song!

Aaand bought a bunch of christmas presents for mums and dads on both sides of the family from zazzle.co.uk (65% off some stuff, sounded good to me)

So, I ordered a CD of pictures from the kids school a while back which turned out nice. Way cheaper than ordering 2 keyrings from the same bloke (£9 for 2 photo magnets) and his other prices were equally ludicrous. Ended up getting

4 photo magnets
2 key rings
2 mugs

aaand 1 mug for me with some gaming goo from they are everywhere on it.

Came up under £50 and we have proper copies of the kids for anything later on, nice.
