John Lewis vouchers!
144 guitar picks, a set of matched valves for my amp and a TV licence reminder
Two out of three ain't bad
Shimano Di2 junction a box.
A reminder to have my blood pressure reading taken.
A new chain whip, a bottom bracket tool (one of the 1/2 cup SRAM/Hollowtech ones so I can check that it's tight withour removing the cranks) and a pait of lock on grips for the 29er.
New Carnac helmet in gloss orange from Planet X.
Got it free with purchase of a £30 gift voucher (had to pay £4 postage). I immediately used the gift voucher toward the two new tyres and two sets of brake pads that arrived the other day.
Happy with a great fitting helmet that essentially cost £4 and goes with the accent colour on my bike!
Uvex cycling glasses.
Another rear light from the south American river:
Should be bright enough, I think.
A demand for more postage, as the sender hadn't put enough on.
Things really aren't going your way at the moment, are they!
Meanwhile, chez moi... postie has just knocked and my little parcel had the correct postage on it. My Scottish cousin has donated his old Hope disk brakes which I will use to upgrade my mountain bike's even older (knackered) Hope brakes. It will nice to get the mountain bike back on the, er offroad after a few years out of action!
New chainset. Shimano because I didn't fancy the stupid campy design. So a new BB too.
Careful how you cut veroboard tracks with that drill bit.
That's a blast from the past ... I haven't cut a Veroboard track since doing my university project in 1985/6!
A fellow student was having problems with his Veroboard-hosted circuit. Apparently, it hadn't occurred to him that some tracks would need cutting ... I had to explain to him that resistors and capacitors soldered along tracks might as well not be there!
The wrong cistern connector, but seeing as I am going on the bike up to the post office I thought the connection would do.
Separate names with a comma.
