eBay.co.uk is having a 20% off voucher promotion and one of the eligible sellers, the clearance account for Curry's, had a Kenwood stand mixer already discounted 17% to £260, so after a little deliberation and looking up all the stuff I could actually do with a stand mixer, I decided to buy it and got it for £208 with free shipping! The model is currently going for £300 on Amazon and has an RRP of nearly £400.

Now I can be a faggot like Derek and make brioche. :awesome:

And even if you don't do that stuff, it can sit on your counter, and make you look like a Real Cook. A couple of racks of $$$$ pots and pans also helps make your kitchen look good.

:lol:

Joking aside, I have an old KitchenAid mixer that my mother had. I was a bit cynical when she got it--it cost a lot, and was that money worth it?--but I got sold on it pretty quickly. It really makes easy work of making bread. It's sitting idle now, but one day I'd like to get back to baking bread...

I have metal shelving in our kitchen where I put my pots, pans, small appliances and all our plates and glasses and such and I always like how it gives the aesthetic of a professional kitchen. :D

I've always wanted a KitchenAid, but damn are they expensive. This one I'm getting is very well-reviewed and highly-praised on Amazon, with some people commenting how their last mixer from this brand lasted them 40 years and this one feels just as solid.

You should try doing something fun with it like making meringue! :nod:

I’ve just had one. There was nothing chocolate about it! I feel cheated. The picture made it seem like it would be a berry flavoured hot chocolate, not berry flavoured hot milk. :pfft:

Reduced, yet still overpriced, crampons and a way overpriced ice axe.

You know you don’t have to buy things just because they’re reduced? I appreciate it’s nice to know that, should someone invite you to tea at the summit of K2, you have the appropriate gear on hand to make the ascent. However, I feel like this may possibly prove to be a rash purchase. :lol:

No no no, you misunderstand. The rash decision was to go on a hike that involves climbing an ice mountain tomorrow morning with a walking group. In context, the purchases make complete sense. :D

The ice axe wasn't reduced, unfortunately. The crampons were the last ones at one of the only two places that sold them in all of Glasgow centre, and just happened to be reduced. They're also one size smaller than I need, but they just barely fit, so it's okay. I may be unethical and return them after using them tomorrow (I don't thin after rinsing you'd be able to tell they were used). They cost a ridiculous £30 (originally £50), while on Amazon better ones can be had for £15.

I’ve never thought of mountaineering, much less ice mountaineering, as something one just gets up and does one morning. I suppose I’m left with no option but to admire your spirit of endeavour. This year, Scotland. Next year, Nepal.

I've been an avid hillwalker since 2013!

It just so happens Scotland's hills are more… mountainy… and winters… icy.

We’ve laid out a timeframe, I think we should keep to it. In Week 4 of February 2021, you need to summit Everest.

Some nintendo switch games and lube...

No.. Not at the same store and not to be used together haha. The games I got are Bayonetta 2 and final fantasy x/x2. Bayonetta 2 is great! Haven't played final fantasy yet. Just bought them a few hours ago.

And the lube is for self play since I'm being good and not trying to be a slut anymore. Needless to say, I still go through the lube just as fast as I did when I was whoring around.

Both are great ways to end the day after some hard work lol

What a coincidence, Brenden *just* bought a Nintendo Switch for us along with some games :D

No lube though — we rarely use it :P

I bought a new DSLR camera, specifically the Nikon D5600 which I got for roughly £400 which is a pretty good deal considering the typical price is £550 including on the website I bought it from, reason it was cheaper was because it was the display model.
