i just bought a lovely Smith's Empire pocket watch on the Ebay. I figured its better to get a nice retro one rather than an 'antique' as its more likely to work when it arrives.


y dream pocket watch is a nice silver full hunter, but for now i just want an affordable one that keeps good time, so the Smith's Empire seems like a dandy choice.

Oh wow, you started this thread. Wonderful.

In the world of Doctor Who, when the trends change, that must be a regeneration.

my pocket watch has been sent to the wrong address.

bastards.

i am now at the mercy of "neighbours" from across the road being honest and bringing it over to me. As long as they don't think its a valuable solid silver antique pocket watch rather than a 60's fellow worth about £20 i should hopefully be ok.

They sent a pair of Doc shoes (Dr Martens rather than Dr Who) to there as well, but i managed to intercept them at the Post Office.

there was a "keying error" in my ebay address when i set up my new account (well done). So its gone to somewhere across the road, probably. Its maybe in a post office depot, or the local post office. I need to go to both to try and locate it tomorrow. Looks like the folk in my equivalent flat across the road are away at the moment, no lights for a few days, so hopefully when they get back, if it hasn't turned up somewhere esle, it will appear.

To make matters worse this morning i went ot put on the new campers i won from Schuh, and i thought, this isn't right, and it wasn;t, i've been sent a box with two right gutties. Thats no good at all. Not even the sonic scredriver can get me out of this mess.

Are they going to sent you more.

At least they don't think you have two left feet... I suppose.

nah, they can't fix it, so i have to send them back and they will give me a refund.

the watch still hasn't appeared, although the neighbour from across the street came over to say he'd been in hospital and posted a slip through the door for an item thats at the post office for me, but i suspect thats the doc shoes which i have already got my mitts on and not my watch.


I saw a couple of beautiful pocket watches today up in Pitlochry, but it seems mad to buy another when there is still a slim chance that this one may appear, although, by now i an doubting that it will turn up.

At least you have a back-up plan.

And if doesn't work you can use the doctor's back up plan... "...run!"

(I'm not sure how that would help you get a pocket-watch though)

I expect they've gone to Spain with the proceeds from the auction of their valuable antique pocket watch.

bastard Converse have changed their sizing. I have been wearing size 12 coverse for eons, but the last 2 pairs of 12 converse i have bought have been too small. I've had to upgrade to 13's

I wore my most recent 12's today and i had to nip out at lunchtime and buy a pair of shoes from a charity shop (they were new, and still tagged, and quite frankly class, kind of dress ankle boots, slightly patent (billed as non-polish) and absolutely worth the £8.99 price tag, so i'm not too bothered) but from now on it's size 13 connies, even if it does look like i could sail in them across loch lomond.
