All the games are PC/Steam versions.

Finally, I bought some new pillows a couple months ago, but I started suffering from neck and back pain/discomfort in the mornings and doing a physically demanding job wasn't helping, so I ended up buying a sleepeasy pillows that helps with that.

You've just reminded me I need a wireless charger thing. 

And I want a robot vacuum... And a new smart speaker. And just when I've decided to go down to 2 days a week at work 😅

Finally they release a phone that isn't like a small tablet!

Right?! The 5 was by far my favourite iPhone and I’m so glad we now have something similar to it - really happy with this one so far.

Both of these have been on my want list for a while, but never seem to find anything I really think is a good buy.

Not opened mine yet, I'm still rocking my original iPhone SE, love that one. Glad they've gone smaller + back to square edges

Hopefully these images will work. Redecorated the converted garage we have in our house. Bought a new  Samsung 43 inch TV and some Star Wars framed pictures as well from here. Bought a Last Jedi one as well as Ep4-6.

It’s my little room for gaming which I’m really chuffed with. Just need to add some stuff to go in the glass cabinets.

Also bought a new recliner which I lost to my daughter within a day :D

Meant to pick up a scarf before lockdown but didn't find one I liked so ordered from ASOS this morning:

9690308-1-black

And then because there's a 25% discount for students I've ended up ordering some more workout stuff:

12760986-1-black 20925061-1-black 21229910-1-lead

Hopefully I don't look as douchey as the ASOS models.

Anyone member Bust a Move 2 for the PlayStation? Well... I found it on the Nintendo eShop! It's called ACA NEOGEO PUZZLE BOBBLE 2 on there. So I bought it for some local multiplayer fun. :D Now I just gotta buy a second controller. xD So I'll sort that tomorrow haha.

I bought a new avatar! 

 

There's also a full image with more on it which I'm looking at getting printed on linen card and framed, but that's for sharing after Christmas, so nobody here can see it yet*

I had an Argos voucher and figured I could do with a clock for my work desk. May get a stand from Rose Coloured Gaming for it as well at some point.

I have no idea why, but I re-bought No Man's Sky for PC (I've already played it on PS4).

I had an urge to play it again with all the updates, and found it cheap.

I bought it knowing full well it's just going to sit in my Steam library unopened...

Well it was Black Friday today so I bought two more Switch Pro Controllers (well, unofficial ones but they have good reviews and look decent), Super Bomberman R and Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze.

I already own Super Bomberman R on PC but I'm trying to get some local split screen multiplayer going as per my prev post, although I admit as a fan of the original Super Bomberman 2 it is nice playing it on a Nintendo console and a TV instead of my PC monitor. xD

I played the first level of Donkey Kong Tropical freeze and I already think it has some of the nicest controls of any 2D/"2D" platformer I've ever played. I also really like the whole atmosphere of the game (so far), think they've done a brilliant job.

Shame Smash Bros wasn't included in Black Friday. Although to be fair I think I'm set for games to play for a while now (still have Luigi's Mansion 3 to play, and still need to finish The Crown Tundra dex), so I'll get it later.

I've been eyeing up the titan chairs for about a year now. Finally gone on sale through black Friday and went halves with my partner as a gift.

Now I'm working from home until at least April (and likely never truly going 100% back to office work) I decided it was worth it.

Glad you finally got it. It's one of those kind of boring but important purchases that I myself put off for a while (and in part because I was moving so much) and it makes a big difference.

I purchased something very on brand:
