My digital camera has been changed! I went back to my local PC World where, as expected, I was told that there were no replacement cameras in stock and I could either have a refund or a replacement from Bristol. I decided to go to Bristol for the exchange.

Off to Bristol excepting an easy and pleasant transaction. Remind me for future reference “Easy”, “Pleasant” and “PC World” do NOT go together!

While at the Customer Support Desk some charming lady told me that as I had 10% off the camera yesterday, due to it being an ex-display model I would have to pay £12.99 extra for a replacement new model. So hang on, if this camera were to EVER break I would have to pay this extra charge? Not what I was told yesterday.

When this was explained to the “helpful” lady I was told in so many words that it wasn’t the problem of the Bristol branch and I had to take it up with Bath where I originally bought the camera EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE IN THE SAME CHAIN OF STORES!

After much persuasion about the practicalities of this and what made logical sense I rightfully left with a new and working camera, still with £12.99 in my pocket which has paid for a case to keep my camera nice.

The remaining £3 was used to buy a very interesting product from The What Shop in town. If you do not know what this shop is, basically it sells a load of old tack in bulk. People go mad for the junk and idiotically fill their houses with cheap looking chairs, ornaments and pictures of holiday resorts.

I bought some Spider Repellent. Apparently if you spray it around doors, windows and any other places you would expect spiders to enter your house through it keeps them at bay.

Taking full use of my new camera to take this photo!

With the summer here and my windows open nearly all the time, these scary creatures may see my home as theirs. Hopefully the repellent will smell so foul it’ll make them turn around and go back to wherever they came from.

To me the repellent smells like a cheap household cleaner or nail varnish remover. I suppose to a spider if smells like faeces and vomit smeared all over the wall. I just worry it won’t attract some sick and twisted exotic spiders who have a fetish for foul smelling chemicals. You hear about people who like sick and disgusting things after all….

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
