OK, I actually didn't get this. They sold out whilst I was contemplating but it was close. Normally $500 but Myer overstocked and were getting rid of it for $249...

Myer does some good deals on Lego, we bought the Dr Who Tardis set at 30% discount last year.

I did buy the jump jet, DCS summer sale at 50% discount :D

Still losing weight over here, now reached the point where I'm not too fat to ride a skateboard, so.. I lived out a dream and bought one. Really prefer the idea of longboards but didn't want to spend big at first, the guys at Basement Skate were super helpful.

Just gotta buy a helmet so I don't crack my dome.

Ah hell! The puffer vests I bought on Saturday have had a further 30% off. I haven't even had the chance to wear the ones I just bought!

They let you use bigger filters on camera lenses than their threaded for ,I had a similar set on my old olympus SLR.

Yeah, none of my circular polariser filters fit my newer lenses so rather than go purchase new filters, I can just grab some step up rings and reuse my current ones. Hopefully there won't be any vignetting.

That model is super cool. I love that interior idea. Nobody else but you might ever know it has one, but it doesn't matter I don't think. All of the fun of models is in building them, not displaying them.

I'd love to have a go at something like that, but I don't think I'd do it justice.. no way I could spend those $$ and not have it look as good as your models do

For those who saw the 'new rug' post, it has arrived... I'm happy with it... just waiting on the lounge now:

Purchased it from Au Rugs and would recommend - it's an enormous rug, quality is great, soft under foot. Was shipped from the USA and arrived in 3-4 days which is amazing, and it cost under $400 which is dirt cheap for a rug this big.

Over a year in and finally a Switch game I'm really excited by, although at first I thought it looked stupid after playing the demo I was hooked.
