was thinking the same, in a way maybe don't even need to repair, just use and enjoy and not have to care about looking after

Anyone know where I can get a reprint of this in A1/A0 size?


I can only find A3 size from Etsy.

Saw an original vintage print in Bologna, but didn't fancy the £700 price tag Laughing out loud

Doesn't look too hard but swerved, had my eye on something else in the auction although final price wasn't bad at €650.

Would try the Auction houses, salesroom.com, catawiki or maybe www.salvoweb.com/

Should try a low ball offer with White Lines.
They went down 30% after a few days of not replying to their email when I bought a cabinet off them.

have google home and if I'm honest mostly use for music and timers. A lot of folk rate the hue bulbs though and at that price the google home is basically free.

Radio, tv, door, heating, lighting off the top of my head. Sure you can do all those things anyway but having it integrated on voice control is nice(lazy).

Got one for my kid. Only a few quid a month to have music unlimited in her room on it too. Getting fucking fed up with her rinsing the shit out of 'Gucci Gang, Gucci Gang, Gucci Gang' though.

Ordered a sofa from HAY in July and it’s still not arrived. They’ve massively fucked up the order so rather than offer to refund us they’ve offered instore vouchers. There’s not really much else in there that i want (wife wants to spend it on throws and cushions).

What are Sonos speakers like, really? HAY have just released some and wondering if this is a good time to jump on them. My set-up currently is some old 50+ years B&O speakers (sound great), cambridge audio amp and and old iPad.

Worth getting one or two Sonos’?
