Re: The Abject Horror That is Mobile Phones

One thing I will say about the iPhone is it retains its value far better than other phone brands. The demand is still huge and I've traded mine on after the contract expired for a pretty decent amount via private sale. Yeah, that's one of the things I was going to say! I don't really have any recen...

Re: Pretty stuff for the house

Ours probably is offensive to some, but we got our CD storage from Unto this Last http://www.untothislast.co.uk/Shelving/CD%20Racks.html . Sadly, all our CDs don't fit on it, but we just put the less important (i.e. embarrassing) ones in an Ikea Billy bookcase. Ooh, some of the stuff on that site i...

Re: Pretty stuff for the house

The bathroom looks incredible! What a difference from the photos you posted a while back. Kitchens and bathrooms are the hardest for me to deal with because most of the more commonly available stuff is either super modern or really old fashioned (in a bad way) and I don't want either of those. The E...

Re: Doctor Who

I thought the ghost one was amazing as well! And I thought this weekend's one was ace, I especially liked the old split brain thing with Matt Smith. I didn't really like the new companion much but I'm warming to her loads now. A lot of this series has been underwhelming for me personally, but even w...

Re: Pretty stuff for the house

Ooh, I love that! Where is it from? We were watching that Hebrides documentary from Sunday last night and I was talking about how much I love the shipping forecast. I love that string system too, Carys! We've put an offer in for a flat today (eek!) and the closing date is tomorrow so we should know ...

Please do feel free to ask when the time comes. It's not even about improving the writing as such, it's more about picking up on things that you wouldn't notice because you've read it so many times or you're so close to the subject, like gaps in logic or convoluted sentences or not defining terminol...

Re: Anoracats!

Yeah, it's natural to be worried. Cats do often just bugger off for a bit, though, especially if it's their first taste of freedom in a while. I hope she turns up. I'm starting to feel a bit bad about keeping Star (now referred to as the fox-pig) indoors all the time. The plan was that I would move ...
