So I was not very smart over the weekend and bought myself a Longboard skateboard... never done any skateboarding before in my life.
Why is my husband posting under Mini's account?

Also in the process of buying a house... offer made, contracts signed, finance approved. Now just waiting on the building and pest inspection to be done to make sure it isn't going to fall down on me.
Congrats dude! That's really exciting.

We just ordered a new Fridge, I've been trying to find one I like that fits our fridge cavity for at least 12 months and I finally settled on one we both like:

I've been thinking about buying a new fridge myself. My fridge is nearly 20 years old so a new one would be more efficient I'd think. Although it would be a moot point because I'd likely keep the old one as a keg fridge :P

Buy a new fridge and some good quality replacement seals for the old fridge ;)

Ours is about 13 years old, it's getting a bit noisy these days. I'll flip it on Gumtree as a beer fridge or something.

My fridge is shy of 10yrs. The girlfriend wanted to get a new twin door fridge a few months back but the fridge space we have isn't wide enough to accommodate most twin doors so we decided to stick with mine for now and wait till the next property we live in... and make sure it's got a big enough fridge.

As for things I've purchased today:

- 3 months of body corp admin service and sinking fund top up
- another year of landlords insurance
- travel insurance
- my last week of groceries for another 10k flybuy points. Got an extra 1500 points from weekly coupons they sent to me

Tomorrow I'll be buying breakfast.

Yes, I'm a sucker for anything like this. Didnt get it when it first came out, but now that EBGames had some more in stock over the past couple of days (processing pre-order returns?), I jumped on it.

Picked up a second hand UHF on eBay for a steal.. pic is not the original but you get the idea! Picked up a very short antenna to mount to the roll bar rather than using a higher db antenna from the bonnet (no bull bar). From what I read, a higher mounted smaller db antenna may out perform a larger antenna mounted with the vehicle blocking 1/4 of it anyway (something about the power being better lower the antenna, not higher).

Just have to make sure I can get into underground carparks..

Is this basically the full retail game (minus bfa) plus extras? How would this work for linking it to the account you already have? Sorry, haven't ever really ordered anything like this. Definitely interested in those mounts.

I bought some custom frames:

Will be for:
Sir Patrick Stewart
Ewan McGregor
Dame Dian Rigg
Samuel L. Jackson
Liam Neeson
All autographed.
Now all I need is Dame Maggie Smith, and Sir Ian McKellen and I'll be all set.
I'm a stickler for titles, and very much a monarchist, deal with it :)

Good luck finding it anywhere other than ebay at highly inflated prices now :P. There's no actual game/xpac with it - a box with codes for the mounts etc, plus some arty stuff, the ragnaros statue, as well as a code for a month's worth of game time.

Needed a new Headset after having to repair my PC,(my old ones were made by coolermaster and aren't even made anymore so couldn't get the drivers anymore!) ,so took a punt on the Aldi ones in their recent tech sale ,gotta say i'm impressed ,had headsets double the cost, ($80) ,nowhere near as comfortable or sound as good - I'm suprised how good they actually are!
The 53mm drivers might have something to do with the sound ,but the whole unit sits nicely and doesn't feel heavy at all.

big cans but they fit nicely over the ears with no squishing!

And house sale fell through so back to looking on that front.
Building report came back with severe rot under the bathroom, and I don't have the money to be replacing a whole bathroom as soon as I bought

A beginners resin kit to have a crack at what I learned in the class at home, and perhaps knock together some neat gifts.

I went to Jaycar yesterday, which is always good fun, and bought LED Illuminated Desktop Magnifier and the optional second 5 diopter lens; though could have filled a trolley with stuff :)

also went to Bunnings and basically bought baa and moo poo and mulch, not so much fun

2 for me. 2 for the girlfriend. I'll let her decide where she wants to leave hers... Car, handbag, or at the couch since she's always looking at her phone there.
