Which reminds me I have a Thinkpad T60 complete with docking station in my museum of obsolete technology. I've been meaning to sort that out for about 5 years.

A 64GB micro SD card for my phone as the current one has given up.  All my pictures of my handsome Sir David gone, but don't worry I have plenty of back up copies!  :thumbs_up:

I wanted a couple of tins of tomatoes, but the panic buyers had emptied the shelf.

We genuinely needed some bog roll, not one to be seen! I have found out that kitchen roll is quite scratchy :blush: still, it is better than Izal (only those of a certain age will know)

I remember Izal,just.My grandfather had a pack in the downstairs toilet.Came in a little flat box with an oval hole in the top similar to tissue boxes.Might be worth taking care with kitchen roll flushing.It can cause blockages!.
