The last thing I tried to buy online was an ice lolly maker from a site which I have since found out is a BIG FAT SCAM :angryfire: . So we lost our money. I'll be wiser in future and google any site I'm thinking of buying from to see whether it is mentioned as such on any consumer websites. :banghead:

My groceries!
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

A toilet that had only been fitted by the builders for the new owners to stick on fleebay (for £10.50), and a bath & hand basin for £16.07 & a trip to Brum.

Guess who is finally saying goodbye to avacado, in order to help the house sell?!!!

If you paid by Visa (debit or credit card), you might be able claim it back. Details are here:- http://whatconsumer.co.uk/visa-debit-chargeback/

I recently tried buying a washing machine from an outfit that charged the card and failed to deliver. It took a couple of weeks for my bank to refund it in full.
Unfortunately you have to spend over €100 on a French debit card to claim a refund, and it was only about £20 ish. :(

But thanks for that link, I have a UK Visa debit card which I will use in future for online purchases as I see there's no limit to what you are covered for! :thumbright:

One of those adaptors for blowing up flat balls....Netballs and Rugby balls, mucky.

I love on-line, it's such a challenge, but great when you get a bargain.

Recently I have been decorating, and have managed to get most of it on-line, only things which I could get effectively priced were Paint and tiles. I hate going shopping in the car and coming home empty handed as it is a waste of fuel, at least on line you know if they have it or not, stupid Lidl and there weekly offers!

A book from Amazon: Not On The Label - Felicity Lawrence. It's a couple of years old but obviously still very relevant. I suspect it's going to change my way of life food-wise more than I can imagine at this point :shock:
