Hoping to get my hands on an Xbox Series X but can't get hold of one for love nor money.

Looking forward to my Christmas scran though.

Earlier on in the year I fancied a beer machine and did a fair bit of research. I really liked the Blade but the Philips PerfectDraft was the more sensible option for me - it fitted in the kitchen! I don't like the SUB. That's the 3 main ones.

A few weeks ago Mrs Jackie had said we're not buying Christmas presents again this year, doing what we did in previous years, a weekend away. We managed Alicante before the world shut down.

She's been awfy quiet of late when I'd be expected her to be reinforcing no presents rule so I think she's upto something.

Either way I'll be happy.

Aye, been reading about this and the PS 5 - usual create supply issues and increase the demand. All the usual outlets ahve stated they are done until the new year with stocks... but I did read that game may be putting more on the shelfs in bundles. (could be rubbish).

Im looking forward to the scran tae. Normally my folks are up north at my brothers, but this year with the lurgy going about, im on XMas day duty.

Edit: my youngest was fishing for it, but with the known supply problems, I have persuaded him to wait into the new year and use his xmas money for that... of course I had to sweeten the deal with an "early" Xmas present of Fifa 21.

Not expecting anything at all for Christmas and will receive nothing but not really bothered. When I was young all I got was a good thrashing and I was grateful as it was better than nothing at all. My pals all boasted about their new bikes so I had at least a response. Happy days, Bah Humbug.

It's been absolutely brutal supply wise plus Scalpers picking up most stock to sell them double the retail price.

Shite that your not getting to see family but hopefully you find a way to enjoy yourself.

I've got a PD as does @EA2007 I believe. Great bit of kit and it really came into its own during lockdown 🥴

Update.

Seems I'm getting nowt 🤣

Mrs Jackie said to me last night 'You'd better tell me something I can get you for Christmas because I haven't got you anything yet'

Might just be a ploy :sm113:

I know my missus has bought me a CD. Dave Brubeck Quartet live at Juan les Pins, Paris 1967.
Anything else will be a surprise.

I'm wanting musical theory for dummies.All this year I have been buying musical instruments out of charity shops and trying to record stuff.I can play euphonium, and I can play bass, and my music reading is a bit sketchy,so I want to transpose the tunes I've got in my head down on transcript paper so that I've got a score, but I need to read up on music theory so that I know what key I am in etc.

I was in the Edinburgh Schools Brass band and Orchestra.But I was persuaded to give up to concentrate on getting my Highers.Big mistake.I now play mainly by ear, playing along with ska and jazz records mainly.My reading has become really ropey hence the theory book.

I own a Rickenbacker 3001 bass. I was told by a professional bassist that it's a limited edition. I had no idea when I bought it.
Circa 1975. Its in its case in the wardrobe. Havent played it in nearly 40 years.
Beautiful guitar in its day. Probably overtaken by more modern makes?

Get yourself a J Arban book. It’s like the brass player’s bible. Loads of exercises easy and difficult to get yer ombrochure back if you ever fancy getting that euphonium back out.
I don’t play but my laddie was principal euphonium of the National Youth Band of Scotland and West Lothian schools. Currently principal euph at Bathgate band.
