What a way to ruin a perfectly good egg!

Last purchase was a slice of freshly baked victoria spongecake.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I bought a new neon tube because the one in the kitchen decided to die after many years of faithful service.

I also bought security locks for the windows and a whole lot of groceries.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

^Security locks as in 'no one comes in' or is it the 'no one falls out'-sort? -I have both types you see; I live on the ground floor and need to be able to have a window open when I'm not home... and I have a cat so I also need to make sure it doesn't get out into the street.

I was looking for something else (more abut that at a later time) when I passed something in the shop I couldn't live without: Star Trek Vault (apparently mine is the UK-version).

Here's a video of someone leafing through the other version (the one without the slip-case)...

As in "If you really want to get in you'll have to smash the entire window frame and half the wall", that's the kind of lock.

^Ah! -Luckily I only need those toward the yard, where there's no light and no one would see if you're up to no good over in that hidden corner where my window is.

ETA:

This reminds me: I just bought insurance... for the first time in my life

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

^ I have a similar problem: the front of the house is on a relatively busy street, so that and being on the second floor pretty much guarantee that nobody will try to get in from there, but in the back we face a private garden which wall is a joke to jump over, hence the need for a bit more security. In any case, these locks come very highly recommended and are apparently the best on the market. Here's to hoping they will never be put to the test!

^You wouldn't happen to have an image or something i could google?

I'm currently using this:


-Which is good enough to keep a cat in and most people out but useless against the professional housebreaker

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Well, I have sash windows, so you wouldn't be able to use them on yours at all. I don't have a picture I'm afraid, but this is the link to the product on a specialist site. Window Bolts

No problem at all!

Today I bought some delicious organic full-fat milk, which I plan to use to make myself a well deserved latte before going to bed.



I also bought these shoes for the worst winter days here and for the best days in the Alps with my parents in the summer.

WIN---ter? I've heard of that. What's it like?

Cool shoes, btw. But I don't think I'd like to deal with all the laces. Yes, I'm THAT lazy.

Just entered the modern phone world by getting one of those touch the screen type mobile phones.....and i will admit its a lot eaiser to send a text message with that onscreen keyboard than it was with my old press the button type one.

Very modern indeed....now to get rid of my VHS movie collection. LOL
