What do you buy?

I have to confess I do address people as My Dear. It does solve the problem with upsetting people in this day and age of gender ideology and political correctness. I get away with it because I’m old!
I had a woman who used to contact me in my job a few years ago and she had a sort of west country accent and would call me 'my lover'. But I found it adorable rather than offensive. However it's funny and just an observation, but the way it is said or how it is placed in a sentence can turn the word 'dear' into an insult. The way you described how you use it is in the harmless camp.
 
I bought a halogen oven from the old ideal world years ago. It was good value for money and I still use it. From the latest incarnation of IW absolutely nothing. Load of unknown or unbranded tat sold by truly dire presenters.
I used to buy a lot from old IW until they turned into a gent's watch channel and turned their website into an absolute jumble sale. I bought the bike box they were always selling and that was a good buy cos it stores away behind the sofa, but I rarely use it, but I know it's there if I fancy, and quite a lot of clothing. I have two dresses I bought years ago and they're still as good as new. A couple of years ago I bought a couple of t shirts but the quality was shocking so I returned them and to add insult to injury I kept receiving those phone calls trying to trick you into signing up for their savings club so I stopped shopping with them altogether. I had a quick watch today and saw a skirt that doubles up as a dress and years ago I'd have probably snapped a couple of them up in a heartbeat and as handy as they look, I've got plenty enough to wear for the summer so it's a no. I mainly watch the channels for entertainment, especially when all the mainstream channels are wall to wall sport!

I bought a halogen oven from Robert Dyas maybe 15 years ago and it was very good as a smaller quicker alternative to using my kitchen oven all the time. I actually had 2 as the first ones element broke and I got a free replacement but upgraded it with their guarantee to a bit larger size.
Now that one has broken when the thermostat stopped turning it on.
 
I bought the halogen oven from IW as the lid was hinged. All the others at the time had lift off lids. As I have a small kitchen with limited counter space plus arthritis in my hands, they were a no no for me.

Mine was a lift off lid but I did not find it much trouble. I have noticed many of the halogen ovens are also now described as airfryers also to be trendy.
 
Hello everybody I have not been on the forum for a while and have been very busy.

Why is everybody laughing at me here and on the Ideal World section just because I like to buy things I like and I like my favourite Peter Simon?
Hello again. My dear, I can assure you I am very real I am not a figment of Peter Simon my favourite and I do buy a lot of things I like on Ideal World.
I explained earlier that I buy for my family and grandchildren also not just for me.
You have to realise that there are a lot of sad people on this site who watch IW all day in the hope of finding “amusing” things to say. Then they can laugh at their own jokes. It’s pretty cheap but I imagine most of the men look like gorillas.
 
I did read here yesterday about Natalia’s shininess but it wasn’t until now that I have really seen just HOW shiny she is. Every part of her face is shining and very plump looking this morning especially the lips. So, so obviously had work done, Botox ,fillers, eye lift etc.Not someone I would take any advice from.

Are you sad or what?
Please do not attack fellow forum members.

I stopped watching the IW version of TJC’s Beauty Channel ages ago, as it just seemed to be an ‘Opatra’ Infomercial. Flicked over yesterday morning to see if anything had changed and Natalia looked like she’d just come from a Spin Class on the hottest day of the year. There is a difference between a healthy glow and a shiny mess.

Pardon? I'm not sure what part of my comments led to this. A fellow forumite suggested that the poster may be on here under another name. I said it wasn't me. The Christian church hasn't yet elevated me to sainthood and I'm not male.

It was merely an attempt at humour, if you read these threads you will see other posts with attempts at humour. If you don't like my comments please feel free to block them, I won't be offended.

Have a good day.

What about the women on this site? Don't leave us out, the suspense is killing us.

Thanks so much for sharing your very profound thoughts, Annie bee. Always good to have a communication from someone who works at the IW coalface (or a friend of same - Bet, is that you?).

Spot on. Well observed.
