    Random purchase

    Due to a toilet seat hinge failure yesterday I have to quickly nip out to Homebase down the road to buy a new seat, and it got me thinking. What is it that you only buy once, or every blue moon that would class as a random purchase, and what was the last one you made? A cat nail file? Window Millenium Edition? Let us know. The more obscure the better

    That's an awful lot of pie, Banoffee or Key Lime?

    Hmm. A 2010 rerelease full sized BigTrak.
    Before that a ruddy huge 57cm clock for the living room from IKEA

    The next one...I predict..a Roomba..heh. Just for the fun of it in the new house - if it works, it'll save me time and less vacuuming. If not, it gets hacked..

    Wow, I didn't know they actually had a name! My kids are addicted to these as well (unfortunately).

    Not a particular item, but I went to Tesco to buy 6 things and all of them were on BOGOF. Felt like I must have looked as though I suffered from OCD going through the checkout with two of everything.........
