Since Clare died in July I've been miserable, I've had a lot of time on my hands, and significantly more disposable income than I was expecting, given that I'm not at work. Coupled with a need to be cheered up, and a "you only live once" philosphy, I've bought rather more gadgets than I have in recent years (perhaps too many). The list so far includes:
- Ruark R2 mk3 Internet radio (which I actually bought while Clare was still at home)
- Nikon D750 full-frame SLR
- Google Nexus 9 tablet
- Marantz M-CR511 hi-fi network streamer, with Wharfedale Diamond 220 loudspeakers
- Epson XP-760 printer/scanner
- Toshiba Chromebook
I hope this is the end of the current spree, although a new car (not a Volkswagen) is on the list too. I hope to publish at least a cursory review of each of these over the coming weeks and months.
Edit: In January 2016 I bought a Volkwagen Golf. Who would have thought it, eh?
