Value

Funny thing is that word

VALUE

its quite easy to equate it in the mecca of shopping I know as ASDA but my American / Canadian Cousins call – WALMART

I walked round the American Giant that’s landed on its cousins shores

We were looking for a new TV – I’m No good with Measurements so i’ll put it this way

80 DVD Cases long, 5 DVD Cases High

Digital (of Course) , Sky Sockets, USB and High Def Sockets

Funny thing – they were all for a particular three figure model – the Kate Moss / Naomi Campbell / Kate Upton of Televisions…with all the mod cons – Blue-ray, HD, Hi-DEF and all internet connected by the wi-fi – and bigger size than the humble Digital Flatscreen that sat in the corner of the room.

My dad was completely convinced… until I posed a little question

My little sisters brood came into the equation….

“Is it Grandson Proof ?”

The search for a replacement continues…..

UPDATE – Dad has his Telly!!!!

Its got all the mod cons he wanted – internet…On demand TV….Universal Remote…

After seeing his decision-making in the store, I’m glad he’s happy with it….

Shelf

I have a nest of shelves in my room. I’m quite proud of them really. You could say they were my First Do-it-Yourself project after leaving school.

What’s on them ? Books, Mainly.  My collection of Terry Pratchett Novels shares space with Authors ranging from the Comedian David Mitchell to William Horwoods Tale of the willows.  A Camera occasionally spends time there, when its not being used for a project

bookshelf

A few Discworld Hardbacks reside in the top left corner, they might not be worth anything, but they sit proud on the shelf, signed by the author himself.

There’s a broken up pyramid puzzle in front of some scientific paperbacks – one day – I might just put it back together, but till then it too occupies a space by the books.  A CD System sits nearby alongside a selection of comedy recordings.  Their Music Equivalents sit on an adjacent shelf

I’ve got a small amount of toy cars commemorating special events held in the UK – mostly from Manchester’s commonwealth games and the London Olympics and these line the top of the shelf.

My holiday trinkets have a shelf all of their own.  Snowglobes, Turtles and the odd pic – right now there’s one of Mum and dad up there.

And most recent my own copies of publications I’ve contributed to.
