I needed a cheap back up bass as I shall be joining a band come the end of the week. I picked this up for 80 quid.

It's a Squier Affinity P-Bass in midnight blue metallicky kind of colour. Made in Indonesia with a IC08 serial. It sounds and plays lovely for a cheapy and seems to have a substantial chuck of wood for a body. It still baffles me that Squier can make such amazing instruments at such a low cost.

Gills for the car, on a test drive last week to diagnose its clutch issue one of the Matt Black ones decided to part ways leaving a hole you could put your hand through, despite functionality being nil and construction plastic its £60 from BMW, so the hole side I bought from them and the other now non-matching side an ebay fixer upper.

HP Pavilion 11-h000sa x2 11.6” Tablet with Intel Celeron 1.6 quad core processor and 4GB RAM

It is used so it didn't come with the keyboard but I already have a laptop so that didn't bother me. It was supposed to be Windows 8 but had been updated to 10 so that was a bonus.

Never seen the original but a lot of people say it's scarier than the remake.

Give me a few days to find my DVD of the BBC Original and I will post it out to you:). It's scarier then the remake and closer to Susan Hill book.. BBC version is a lot Darker plays up his lonelyness/fear and you see the ghost a lot more, she rapes Quatermass in the BBC version.. I enjoyed the remake but they tried G make it happier..
