Just the wax. Hit with a hair drier and buff it out if it bothers you.

You could re wax it yourself or take it take the shop.
Barbours are meant to get a bit bashed up though

Thought it was this as well but then I remembered I havent worn a bag for six months as uni is closed.

Probably the wax then, cheers

Me and my mrs have started putting some money away to pay for furniture and stuff when we move house in a few months time.

Only have about £2k saved at the moment but it’s sat in a pot on our joint monzo account doing nothing and gaining no interest whatsoever.

As it isn’t a lot of money and loads of saving accounts are shit atm I was thinking of putting it into premium bonds for a few months, but was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for better alternatives? E.g pyramid schemes, selling Avon, gold doubloons etc

Don’t really want to risk losing money in shares (plus I don’t have a clue about it)

Darko just sit on it mate. You aren’t going to make anything worthwhile off 2 months interest without risking a loss

Yeah man they are really glitchy, same with now TV sticks.

I have a spare one of the original fire sticks (without the alexa) that I can post you for free if you like?

Its been like that for a while, alongside Magic the Gathering but has blown up because of Youtube now rocketing prices to all time high.

Anyone with a ps5 suffering screen dropouts on their TV? Just goes blank a few times within a few minutes. Heard it was an issue with the ps4 Pro but dissapointed that it's happening with the ps5. If it's any help my TV is this one.
