Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Today I paid for a farewell lunch for my son at our local pub. 11 adults and two children attended. My son is leaving Hobart on Monday to go and live in Brisbane. Total cost of the meals was $352. I had scallops, one of my sons had chicken schnitzel and the other son had barrimundi.

Here is a photo of the recliner that I mentioned buying a few days ago.



Normally I cover it with a comforter so it doesn't get cover with cat hair.

A delicious bag of Roast Chestnuts!

Haven't had them in years, but couldn't resist the smell of them roasting away today. I normally avoid going into the city at weekends as it's just too busy, but I needed to pop in briefly (didn't have time during the week to go the tailor for a fitting) and the chestnuts went a long way to mitigating the hassle of dealing with the crowds. Turned out the fellow selling them is usually based in London. Apparently the going rate for hot chestnuts there is three times what he was selling them for here (quid a bag); probably says more about the cost of having a street stall permit in London than anything else. Perhaps more surprisingly, it pleases me that there's enough trade to support his niche business.

Ordered a second Roku today. My parents bought a new TV, even though they really didn't need one, so they gave me their old one, even though I didn't really need one, so my old one migrated to my bedroom, and since I don't have cable, and didn't want to be tied to ONLY DVD's in the bedroom, another Roku was in order.

I would love to order a second one. My parents lost their satellite service so I gave them my Roku box, and now I'm stuck with nothing unless I watch online, and sitting in my desk chair for two hours is a very unappealing prospect.
