    I sold my Xbox One, And then needed a new controller for my PC, so bought the Xbox One Elite Controller.
    I've also bought plenty of Mince Pies...

    Having become rather frustrated with my Android phone recently I have decided to get rid of it. It's not the phone, it's me. I have been put on new anti depressants that are making me very foggy. Either that or I am getting dementia, but I suspect it's the pills. There are a few things my Blackberry Passport has that I adore, like for example the Blackberry Hub. I can have as many email accounts as I wish, and they all come up through the hub. Given I use three email accounts this works superbly. However on Android using the stock mail app I need to manually switch between the accounts, then wait around five minutes for any emails to come through. I know there is probably a way around this, but I am starting to also reach the 16gb limit of the phone. I did put in a memory stick, but yeah after around 1.5 years of use I could do with more actual phone storage.

    I did consider switching back to my Passport, but it's not very good for Youtube which I have kinda become accustomed to since switching from the beautiful keypad to the "prod screen" of the Oppo. So basically I needed something in the middle of them both.

    It has 64 storage too. It's by no means an upgrade. TBH? the Oppo is faster, has a better resolution screen and a better camera etc but I just think it will be so much easier for me to live with. I've also wanted one since they came out, but I didn't happen to have the preposterous asking price. I paid £175, exactly the same price I paid for my Oppo 1.5 years back.

    Edit. lmao. Just went looking for a case.. £150. Going to have to get a clone. Did not realise this phone had an RRP of £1400. That may explain the case price lol.

    Cheap (but apparently surprisingly decent) earbuds from GearBest, Auglamour RX-1 gun metal. They look awful IMO, but I most certainly didn't pay for top-notch aesthetics. First purchase at GearBest, I'll see when it arrives.
    Also threw in some Weitus tweezers in my shopping basket before ordering because they were cheap (... the usual trap with these chinese websites).

    Honda NC750X in red, brand new. Got sick of waiting for my insurance to pay out on my existing claim, so I went down to the dealer and dropped a deposit on this.

    Pick it up on Saturday, soooo looking forward to being back on the road.

    Agreed.

    Also bought mouse bungees for the girlfriend and me which will just make us unbeatable in Quake Champions (or not.... probably not) and more books, The Ritual (movie based on Adam Nevill's glorious book of the same name), a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro for the girlfriend for gaming. Probably forgot quite a bit, but damn you Christmas...

    Case is a Christmas present.
    Cooler was a freebie.
    Mobo, practically new, was a very good price on another forum.

    Stumbled upon this cute little camera at the local thrift store, the smallest SLR system ever made.
    - Pentax Auto 110
    - Pentax-110 50mm f/2.8
    - Pentax-110 24mm f/2.8
    - Pentax-110 18mm f/2.8
    - Carry case, all caps, filters, and a lens hood for the 18mm.
    All in pretty much perfect condition. Light meter seems to work fine too.

    Look how tiny it is! It's like a toy miniature camera, but actually well-made and completely functional. The viewfinder's surprisingly large too.

    I feel tempted to go and buy a few rolls of 110 film to try it out, but a single roll seems to cost about 4 times what I paid for this whole set...

    Just spent £23 quid on a 1 litre tin of paint for the studio renovation. Good god it looks so nice.

    Almost there. A bit more painting and some electrics and I can finally start working again.

    As fat as I am you would think I ate that every night. But I only have it once a year or so, same as any other junk food. And when I do? heavenly :D

    Your planning ahead and have bought yourself a rather neat funeral urn for your ashes following your cremation after your sad demise.

    No, I guess scale is difficult from a photo, but it's around 60mm in diameter, and I'm sure I'd be more ashy than that.
