It’s my Mum’s birthday this week, she asked for a moth identification book…

Can anyone top that?

Me three.

The elastic has gone in the current one for no apparent reason.

I’m guessing that ironing board covers are a one size Fitz Hall job?

Scored some clothes pegs at the weekend. We were dangerously low. No idea where they all go.

Definitely not.

Door handles.

Couple of t bars.


I bought a battery pack for my phone and it’s actually very useful.

You know, I have no idea.

@marckee, what does Which? recommend?

Hello Dave, Leeds. Wanna buy some pegs?

Wow - this adds a whole new layer of excitement to ironing board cover shopping.

Just take your ironing board with you to the shops, simples.

I’m in the market for a travel iron. Needs to be compact.

I bought a bike yesterday

Used to have one and it was pointless.

Now I only stay in hotels with an ironing service. You know, to save money on a traveling iron.

Fucking nailed it, mate. Most boring purchase possible. Thread winner!
